Refreshed Belper Ladies came from behind to celebrate their second victory of the season in the Conference North of the Investec Women’s Hockey League.

After three defeats in their opening five matches, Belper looked much more focused and aware of what is required to compete at this lofty level.

Beeston were difficult opponents, coming into this game on the back of a 7-0 romp in their previous fixture. And after a goalless first half, the visitors took the lead just two minutes after the interval.

But Belper equalised when Lizzie Lamb flicked home at the near post, and then Jo Lane sealed the three points by scoring the winner from the penalty spot.

The next match is this Saturday when Belper make the long trip to play Whitley Bay and Tynemouth.
