Lancaster Nomads stayed unbeaten with a 5-4 win at Lytham St Annes 2s in the Lancashire Central Women’s Hockey Association Division One.

Two Hazel Irwin goals either side of a break away goal for Lytham gave the visitors a 2-1 lead at the break.

A penalty corner shot was deflected in by player of the match Sarah Hampson to make it 3-1 after the break but the hosts were going nowhere and pulled a goal back from a penalty corner themselves.

Irwin completed her hat-trick to make it 4-2 before Rachel Earnshaw’s goal made it five. Lytham pulled two goals back late on.
