CITY of York Ladies I are still unbeaten in North Women's League division one following a 2-2 draw with Ben Rhydding II.

Goals from Charlotte Tuplin and Ali Couttie gave fifth-placed York a two-goal lead before Ben Rhydding fought back going into the break.

York started the game at lightning speed and Tuplin slotted home within the first minute.

Following up with some slick passages of play, York made it two through Couttie less than 10 minutes later.

Ben Rhydding pulled one back contentiously shortly after with an effort York thought was outside the 'D', and levelled with a retaken penalty corner just before half-time.

Despite a lacklustre start to the second period, York finished the game strongly and peppered the visitors' defence, but could not find a way through.

City of York Ladies II failed to win for the first time this season - but remain top of Yorkshire Women's League premier division with a 0-0 draw at second-placed Ben Rhydding III.

The visitors twice went ahead in the draw, with Dave Richardson also on target for the Tangerines, who sit sixth in Yorkshire League division one.

Play was largely confined to the midfield to begin with as Acomb started the day strongly with a few penalty corners.

Doncaster opened the scoring after 15 minutes before Richardson fired home during a routine corner. 

But Doncaster struck back almost immediately, beating keeper Craig Brown from a narrow angle to take a lead at the break.

Brown made two good saves at the start of the second period to keep Acomb in contention, which his side rewarded with increased pressure at the other end. Player-of-the-match Jonny Scott forced the Doncaster keeper into several point-blank saves.

In the final minute, Acomb struck the equaliser through Brown.

York punished Acomb by sinking five goals before the break, with Acomb's reply coming from striker Harry Ellis.

Acomb came out in the second half a more composed defensive unit and only let in a further two goals.
