Colchester 1 West Herts 2
East Women’s League
COLCHESTER failed to capitalise on a good recent run of form on Saturday with a lacklustre performance against a well organised West Herts side.
The home side found it difficult to string together passes to their own players in the first half and found themselves constantly under pressure from the West Herts forwards. Somehow, however, it was Colchester who took the lead when a breakaway move resulted in Helen Scott in a one on one with the keeper, which she cleverly lifted into the back of the net after the keeper had gone to ground early. The momentum stayed with the visitors and it was with some relief that half time came and Colchester were still winning 1-0.
Colchester managed to start the second half with a little more composure and formation. The home side thought they had doubled their lead when a ball into the ‘D’ found Lucy Struth who scored from close range. he goal was awarded by one umpire, only for the umpire furthest away to disallow it for a foot, which nobody else saw.
