A penalty four minutes into added time saw Lincoln Ladies held to a 3-3 draw by Liverpool following a thrilling Women's Super League clash at Ashby Avenue.

The Lady Imps got off to the perfect start, storming into a 2-0 lead inside 14 minutes thanks to a brace from Precious Hamilton.

But Liverpool rallied and pulled a goal back before half-time through Emily Gielnik. The visitors levelled 20 minutes from time when Chloe Jones' shot took a massive deflection and looped over keeper Nicola Hobbs.

The Lady Imps restored their lead just three minutes later when Hamilton was sent tumbling in the box and Remi Allen converted from the penalty spot.

However, Lincoln were forced to settle for a point following a dramatic finale. Deep in added time, England skipper Casey Stoney was adjudged to have held Kelly Jones, who held her nerve to convert the spot-kick.

Stoney was sent off for a second bookable offence and will serve a one-match suspension once the Super League resumes in August following the Olympic Games
