Hockey: Stephenson dives in to snatch Wells last-minute winner

Premier Inn Tunbridge Wells

A LAST-gasp strike from Tunbridge Wells Ladies’ first team earned a win over Folkestone.

The home side opened the scoring, captain Jen Hunt netting from a short corner with her classic straight strike. But Folkestone began to dominate after half-time and managed to take the lead 2-1.

A well-worked goal saw Perdi Knight dribble around three defenders and shoot, with Jemma Stephenson getting a touch to level the scores.

In the last minute Nelia Bekker sent a fantastic through ball to Hunt. She ran rings around the defence and passed on her reverse stick to the far post where Stephenson managed to get a touch by diving on the floor to seal the win.
