Their continuous efforts were duly rewarded as Linda Cooper broke down the wing supported by Amanda Becker, and they set up Abbie Arnull to score.

Rugby battled back but Holly Singleton made a string of saves to keep it at 1-0.

Buckby had more chances in the second half, but failed to take them, while at the other endfantastic defending by Sarah O’Donovan and Kath Kates ensured Rugby could not find a way through.

However, Rugby increased the pressure and capitalised on a short corner to secure a goal and level the scores.
