AFTER last week’s second half capitulation, Walden put in a spirited performance to narrowly miss out on their first points of the season away at Maidstone.
The team showed plenty of promise in their 3-2 loss but could have taken a win had they converted some of the chances created.
Mayle opened the scoring for Walden with a reverse stick shot after good build up play down the left from Holmes and Evans.
In goal, Doust, was quick off her line on several occasions but could not prevent Maidstone equalising before half time. Green cards were issued for some errant stick tackles early in the second half and subsequently Maidstone were awarded a penalty stroke, somewhat harshly against Walden, for a repeat offence. They converted and then moved 3-1 ahead.
Walden remained positive, holding firm in defence and with Issy Davison making runs from midfield looked for an opportunity to get back in the game.
Mayle came close with a raised shot before Harrington pushed in from close range after Langridge’s cross from the right.
Unfortunately full time arrived before Walden could get their equaliser.
