With late ferries and crashes in Southampton the Ladies 2nd team arrived at their fixture with Southampton 10 minutes after the game should have started! The disruption unsettled the Island and Southampton took full advantage as although the game flowed well it was the home side who took the early lead form a short corner. The Island kept going and made some great attacks into the Southampton circle but could not convert any chances. Southampton grabbed another again from a short corner to go into the break 2-0 up.
With time to gather their thoughts the Island started to gain the upper hand. The breakthrough came in the form of a great run from Wightlink Man of the Match Emmeline Breach whose shot on goal was deflected by a Southampton defender into just the right spot for Gracie Boyd to slot home. Emmeline Breach was on fire and destroyed the Southampton defence time and time again. She got her reward when she played to the whistle and fired the ball in the back of the net after a good advantage play from umpire Neil Harris. This again spurred the Island on but we could just not find the elusive winner. The game looked to be heading for a draw but in the last minute of play and despite some brilliant defending from the Island the home side were awarded a short corner which they converted for the winner.
