Honours were shared in the South Women’s League Division 3B city derby with Trojans II and Southampton drawing 3-3 at Stoneham Lane.
Trojans seized the initiative with an early goal which Sue Merry cancelled out after a right-wing move between Emma White & Nat Romain.
As the game swung back and forth, teenager Ellie Streather and Lou Hopkins gave newly promoted Southampton a 3-1 lead, which Trojans trimmed just before the break.
Trojans levelled to make it 3-3, but Southampton might have won it in the closing stages as Streather was denied in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper and Artelle Brooks fizzed a shot inches over the bar.
