Looking to put their defeat at Harleston Magpies the week before behind them, Horsham made a slow start at were 1-0 down after just two minutes.

They soon began to string some fine passes together and came back with a spectacular goal from defender Emma Whipps from a short corner, and it remained 1-1 up until half-time.
