WOMEN’S FOOTBALL: Crucial away win for Argyle, while Marine Academy move top of their league

A LAST-gasp Amber Pollock goal has boosted Plymouth Argyle’s hopes of staying in the FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division.

Pollock struck deep in injury-time to secure the Pilgrims a 2-1 away win at London Bees.

Georgia Wilson had given Argyle the lead on the half-hour mark and it remained at 1-0 until the 69th minute when Janaye Beaufort equalised for the Bees.

It did look like the game was heading for a draw until three-minutes into added-on time when Pollock struck the winner.

The victory has moved Argyle within two points of safety and they could move out of the bottom two this coming weekend, if they can beaten winless bottom club Crawley Wasps away.

Marine Academy Plymouth have moved to the top of the South West Women’s League Western Division after a convincing 5-1 victory over title-rivals Sticker.

Samantha Drewery, who last weekend had hit six against Bideford, netted three against Sticker.

Third-placed Saltash United, who will host Marine this coming weekend, also recorded another victory by seeing off Feniton 2-1 away.

Yasmin Franklin and Emila Heyes scored for the Ashes, who are now level on points with second-placed Sticker.

In the Devon Women’s League South & West Division, Plympton moved up to second thanks to a hard-earned 1-0 away at Lakeside.

After that, Lakeside have a couple of great chances to equalise but just could not find the net.

Plympton had more of the match in the second period but could not add to their tally, although they did have an effort ruled out for offside.

Signal Box Oak Villa have dropped down to third after they were held 1-1 at home to Teignmouth. Victoria Jasper scored Oak Villa’s goal.
