Colchester 0 St Albans II 2
East Women’s League
A LACKLUSTRE performance on Saturday resulted in Colchester feeling they had lost three points in a game they certainly could have got something from.
With temperatures soaring Colchester knew it was going to be hard work against a St Albans side who had also been promoted from the league below.
The first half was fairly even with both sides having possession but neither creating many clear cut chances. Colchester came close mid way through the half when a Lucy Struth penalty corner strike struck the post. The visitors also went close with a strike just going wide from another penalty corner.
With the score 0-0 at half time both sides went to find some shade and re-group before another gruelling half. Colchester continued to press and earned numerous penalty corners, which they failed to take advantage of.
St Albans broke the deadlock when they caught Colchester napping at the back and a shot on the half volley went flying into the back of the net. Ten minutes later it was all over when the visitor’s scored from a penalty corner, something Colchester had been unable to do. The score could have been worse had it not been for some fine defending by man of the match Hazel Gower who tackled well all afternoon.
