The initial pace of the game eased off a little as both teams adjusted to playing in the draining heat. Despite early promise from Letchworth, it was Royston to score first after one of their limited attacking chances was converted. Letchworth heads didn't drop though and some good quality passing through the team earned a number of good attacking chances. The goal finally came shortly before half-time after another bustling run down the right from Sue Saunders
was followed up with a quality pass to Alice Saunders
, giving her just enough time and space for a good strike on target. Letchworth went into the welcome respite of the limited pitch-side shade at half-time with spirits lifted.
The Letchworth defence stood firm throughout the 2nd half, with sheila lucas
clearing up on a number of short corners. Despite good communication and some great passing moves up the pitch creating a number of opportunities to win the game, Letchworth were unable to make the pressure pay. The game finished with the persistence, and perspiration, of both teams being rewarded with a point-a-piece for the one-all draw.
Well deserved man of the match credits went to Sue for her key role in a good right-side attack throughout the game. D' of the day was awarded to Haidee, again, for a variety of reasons not best dwelt upon.
