LYTHAM responded well after last weeks poor performance with one of their best results of this seasons campaign. Ruth Blackburn opened the scoring following a well taken penalty corner routine involving a good one-two with Heidi Whitehead.

The second half saw Garstang pull one back before Whitehead beating three defenders scored a fantastic solo goal.

Finally Lian Atkinson rounded off a tenacious performance with a goal scored from close range.

Mention should be made of the departure of Kelly Ferguson who has been such a power of strength in the defence.
