Letchworth Ladies 4th XI 4 - Stevenage 5th XI 0
The 4th XI took another giant step on the road to promotion from Five Counties Div 6 on Saturday.
They were always in control of the game with 'Player of the Match' Liz Small & Katherine Lennard, in particular, creating a stranglehold in midfield. It wasn't until midway through the first half though, that they eventually broke the deadlock. After a string of short corners, Alison Adams opened the scoring with a clever deflection. She added her second minutes later and Letchworth were able to relax, as the game headed towards the half time break. They upped the tempo in the second half with Tara Belcher making a series of surging runs down the right flank. More short corners followed but the Stevenage defence continued to frustrate the 4s' attack. However, they were not to be denied more from their efforts. Jane Wareing added a third goal with a reverse stick shot & Emily Tollafield swept in the 4th over the Stevenage 'keeper, whose outstanding performance prevented a double figure score line. The 4th XI now have a 6 week break before their next league encounter.
