Crawley Wasps staged a rousing comeback with two late goals to draw 3-3 away at promotion favourites Leyton Orient in the London & South East Women’s League Premier on Sunday.
Trailing 3-1, Holly Turbill and Naomi Cole both scored late goals to clinch the draw.
Holly Walker headed them level at 1-1 before two second-half goals put the hosts in control but Turbill and Cole ensured Wasps came away with a point.
Manager Paul Walker said: “It would have been very harsh on us if we had got nothing out of the game.
“It was a fantastic effort and shows the value of never giving up.
“Despite that I still feel it was two points dropped - up until they scored their second goal we were completely in control. There was only one team going to win it.”
