Bottom of the table clash
sees both teams take a point each
Shefford travelled to face fellow bottom of league strugglers, West Herts. It was always going to be a difficult game with both teams fighting for Division 1 survival. The game was fairly open to start with, although chances were at a premium. Shefford conceded a short corner and the Herts striker’s shot whizzed past Fuller’s helmet and dipped into the back of the net. Shefford were momentarily deflated. But they regrouped and focused on the job in hand. Eventually their hard work and tenacity paid off. Rayner won a short, and Fury converted to level the score. Shefford were back in the match and playing some great hockey. Lambourne and Harling bossed the midfield and Chiswell was a stalwart in the heart of defence, backed up by the inform Fogg. Burke alias Pritchard - (probably up for most improved player) started the move that saw Fury add her second goal to give Shefford the lead. Herts piled on the pressure and broke through the middle and scored their equaliser. It was like a dagger through the heart of the Shefford defence. The match finished honours even and Shefford’s Division One status hangs in the balance .....
Thanks to coach Kelly on the sidelines.
