The rest of the first half was evenly contested as Harriers wouldn't let Diss settle and some good work by Keeley Reed and Megan Browne kept the Harriers' attack at bay.
The second half started with a barrage of Diss pressure. Harriers couldn't clear their lines and no-one knows how Diss didn't add to their tally.
Harriers managed to weather the storm and started to play some nice hockey and on a couple of occasions caught Diss on the break and should have scored.
With 15 minutes to go, Diss player-manager Lindsay Cates made a rare appearance and it was her persistence that led to Ann Plowman smashing in the third.
Harriers showed a lot of spirit and should take credit for their battling display.
