Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Natalie Hall emulated her male counterpart Wayne Hennessey by saving a penalty against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
However the women went one better by beating their local rivals 2-1 in their first ever league meeting in the Midland Combination in a game which was played with passion and skill from both sides.
All three goals came in a seven minute period just before half time. Nicole Ledgister gave Wolves the lead before Albion, who had started the day as league leaders, equalised through Hayley Moore. However moments later, Heather Clarkson scored what proved to be the winning goal.
Ten minutes into the second half, Hall pulled off her penalty save and the 19-year-old also needed to make a couple more saves while Anne Johnson headed off the line. At the other end, Ledgister had a goal disallowed for handball before a frantic last ten minutes saw Wolves hold firm under pressure to secure a much needed victory for themselves.
Wolves keeper Natalie Hall said afterwards: "We heard the Wolves men's result in the dressing room just before kick off and learning that Wayne Hennessey had saved a penalty inspired me to do the same! It was a tough game but we fought hard and deserved all three points."
