Following a morale-boosting draw at Bishops Lydeard in rheir opening game, our Ladies entertained Combe St Nicholas in what proved to be another fiercely-contested encounter.

After a first half lacking in clearcut chances, Wellington sprang into life after the break, dominating possession and opening up the Combe defence on several occasions.

Despite having numerous one-on-one opportunities, Wellington could not break the deadlock, and were left to rue these missed chances, as Combe struck with a swift counter-attack to lead 1-0.

With the game seemingly lost, and frustration growing for the home side, Wellington were awarded a penalty for handball with just five minutes remaining. Up stepped Sheldon Hancock to take it, who agonisingly struck the post, only for the rebound to fall kindly to Emma Mingo, who slotted the ball home with great aplomb.

The 1-1 draw ensures Welly stay unbeaten with two draws from two but, if they can start to take their chances, their first win will surely be just around the corner.
