Brentford were asked to bounce back after a dismal showing last week. They started fast, were in the faces of Northwood from the word go.
A great start was made even better when Aisha LUTUMBA popped up in the right place after a shot was parried by their goal keeper to slot home from close range. Making it 1-0 to the home side.
Brentford were buzzing and made steps to make it 2-0 with attempts from Amanda OSBORNE from a great distance and Naomi TOTTEN with a header from close range for it to be called offside.
Northwood’s only attempt on goal in the first half ended with a goal after their corner curled straight in without a touch from any player.
This didn’t deter Brentford who went straight down the other end and scored with a precise lob from Naomi TOTTEN straight over the goalkeepers head. Making it 2-1, seeing Brentford ahead again and at the Half Time break.
The second half started bright with more attempts from Geraldine BURGESS who replaced Naomi up front. Unfortunately as Brentford pressed sloppy defending allowed the Northwood striker in to slot home from close range to make it 2-2.
Again, Brentford weren’t phased and without hesitation Lisa GRANT took on two players and crossed for Geraldine BURGESS to tap home from close range. Brentford were up again 3-2.
Brentford were adamant they were not going to let this lead slip, the referee signalled there was fifty seconds left to play when Brentford took a throw on deep inside the opposition territory, Brentford could not maintain possession and after almost two minutes added on further to the fifty seconds the opposition equalised with literally the last kick of the game. Making the final score 3-3.
