Surbiton Ladies had to come back from 3-1 down with seven minutes to play to win 4-3 against newly promoted Cambridge City, Izzy Petter scoring a last gasp winner in the final minute in Bristol.

Cambridge were runners-up to Gloucester City in last season’s Division Two tournament, but took the lead in the tenth minute through Heidi Baber, before Victoria Hill doubled their advantage three minutes before the interval.

Olivia Chilton pulled a goal back four minutes into the second half, but within two minutes, Madeleine Newitt restored Cambridge’s two goal advantage leaving Surbiton with work to do.

Surbiton’s revival began in the 33rd minute when Petter scored the first of her two goals. Two minutes later Lizzie Gittens equalised from a penalty corner before Petter gave Surbiton the lead for the first time in the match in the last minute to perfectly conclude her team’s comeback.
