Looker Brace not enough for Duchy
Duchy slipped to a shock away defeat to Plym Valley despite a brace from Amy Looker
Duchy took the lead ten minutes before half time when Gemma Pellow crossed from the right for Looker to sweep home, however Plym Valley struck back imediately from the restart; and the teams went into the break locked at 1-1.
An uncharacteristically poor second half from the visitors saw Lizzie Selley give Plym Valley the a 2-1 lead mid-way through the half, before Jo Wakeham stretched the advantage to 3-1 with a penalty corner on the hour mark. Duchy responded with Amy Chippett laying a pass off to Looker who smashed home her second for 3-2; however the goal proved too little, too late and the home side held out for a deserved win.
