Team Bath Buccaneers had to come from behind to beat Taunton Vale 2-1 and move into second in the league on goal difference. Buccs, who lost away to Vale in the cup three weeks ago, were looking at their first defeat of the season after failing to convert chances.
But captain Wendy Smith equalised with 10 minutes to go from a corner rebound that saw a shift in momentum in Buccs’ favour.
Hannah Rhodes found the winner taking her chance from close range after an initial save from a short corner. The Taunton goalkeeper left the ball free in the circle for Rhodes to snap up the chance.
Buccs are now level at the top of the table with Exe, with 10 points from 4 games. Buccs face a tough match away at third placed Clifton seconds on Saturday.
