Not for the first time this season, Chelmsford had to dig deep and summon the strength in continuing to play attacking hockey. As Chelmsford's Becky Alltree began to take control of the midfield Trojans were pushed back to their defensive half.
Forwards Helena Roberts and Libby Knifton started to find themselves space in attacking positions but were unable to capitalise with the all important shot on goal. In the 20th minute, it looked as if Chelmsford had drawn level only to have their goal disallowed.

On a rare away attack, Trojan's found themselves in a one-on-one situation against Chelmsford 'keeper Lynsey Warren. Warren, who has been in fine form this season despite the previous heavy league losses, made a fine double save at the top of the D.
Following the half-time interval, Chelmsford went close to opening their account, following a passing move between Alltree and Knifton, only to have both their shots saved by Trojans 'keeper.
Trojans increased their lead with a well-taken penalty corner routine. Even following this further set back, Chelmsford remained strong as a unit. With the team being pushed forward by Hayley Heggie and Marie Arber, they never ceased in their efforts to claim a consolation goal.
Finding goals hard to come by, Chelmsford were beaten by Trojans 2-0.
