The Crows showed great character by responding straight from the restart when Paige Rolfe was brought down inside the area, Jo Rutherford confidently stepped up to equalise from the spot.

Hoddesdon started the second half well but the Crows defended well. Royston took the lead through Ashleigh Tuck when she broke through one on one with the keeper and finished well.
