Suzy Read opened the scoring after five minutes with a cracking volley and added an equally impressive second 20 minutes later as Hemel dominated the first third of the game.

As the Dons started to get back in the game, however, a silly challenge in the area gave Wimbledon a penalty that was duly converted just before half time.

In contrast to the first 45 minutes, the second half was a struggle for the Tudors as Wimbledon kept up the pressure and equalised with only a few minutes gone.

The game began to open up and there were chances at either end, but with no further goals the game ended all square.

The teams face each other again next week in the reverse fixture.
