West Herts 2 Colchester 0

THIS weekend saw Colchester ladies travel to Watford to play West Herts who are sitting high in NE14Hockey East Premier league.

West Herts applied pressure from the beginning and Colchester found themselves under attack from a strong home team. The visitors worked hard and continued to absorb the pressure with some strong defensive play and went into the half time break at 0-0.

Colchester continued to play good hockey and in the second half developed some good counter attacks. The home team carried on applying pressure and were awarded several short corners which they couldn't convert. Eventually the home team tried something different with a lob from the top of the “D” which went high and then dipped just under the cross bar to allow West Herts a 1-0 lead.

Colchester counter attacked almost immediately which resulted in a string of opportunities which they could not quite capitalise on. A careless hit out from Colchester resulted in an opportunity for the home team who drove into the D drawing the keeper to the near post before pulling it back to the penalty spot where a striker was waiting to put it past the Colchester defence.

Again Colchester continued to build attacks, with player of match Clare Griffiths instrumental in the centre position but they were denied at each turn.

Due to work constraints, Colchester will be losing their coach after Christmas. If there are any interested people they should contact the ladies first team captain or secretary whose details are available through the website. In the meantime, Colchester are looking forward to having their coach back for the match versus Cambridge University at Colchester Abbeyfields after he was unable to make it this week.
