Dereham Ladies 1, Maidstone 2

Dereham suffered their first hockey defeat of the season but still stay top of their league on goal difference.

Kath Malvern for Dereham scored early in the game with a thundering shot from a short corner.

Maidstone equalised soon after and from then on both sides applied pressure and both defences were tested to the limit.

It was not until late into the second half that Maidstone were awarded a penalty, which they converted.

This loss could be the best thing for this team as it should remove any complacency.
