Captain Gemma Bonner netted a dramatic equaliser as Liverpool Ladies played out a 4-4 draw away at Arsenal Ladies in the Spring Series on Thursday night.
Both sides served up a fantastic advert for women’s football in an enthralling encounter.
Goals from Alex Greenwood, Natasha Harding and Caroline Weir had given the Reds a 3-1 half-time lead, but the hosts came back to make it 4-3, only for Bonner to rescue a point for Scott Rogers’ team.
Liverpool made a great start to the proceedings and took the lead on 13 minutes when a corner from Greenwood evaded everybody and went straight into the back of the net.
Two minutes later, it was almost 2-0 as the in-form Harding set off on a superb run which ended with a shot inches wide.
The Gunners then equalised on 36 minutes through Chloe Kelly, who struck at the near post after a cross from Danielle Carter.
