CITY of York Hockey Club's Ladies II earned a 3-3 draw at University of Leeds III in a thrilling Yorkshire League premier division fixture.

Leeds drew first blood in the high-intensity opening stages, but the visitors were soon level through Ali Couttie from a short corner.

The hosts took a one-goal lead into half-time following a goalline scramble.

City began the second period rejuvenated, however, and Corinne Wray put them on equal terms again with a penalty flick.

Couttie then put City into the lead from a short corner, but a late penalty flick for Leeds ensured the points would be shared.

City are now 10th in the division, third from bottom, a point behind Leeds in ninth.

City of Yoork IV remain bottom of division two after falling to their eighth defeat in a row, losing 4-0 at Tadcaster Magnets.

City’s passing and breaks improved in the second period, but they struggled to test the Tadcaster keeper.

Two more goals towards the end killed the game off, but did not reflect the balance of the contest.

Adel opened the scoring in the second half, but a well-worked team move took the ball from one end of the pitch to the other and player-of-the-match Helen Williamson bagged the equaliser.
