After a 4-1 loss the week before to the same team Welwyn Garden City gave Saffron Walden much more of a contest at deHavilland Sports Village – the two sides playing out a 1-1 draw.

They had welcomed a number of back from the defeat in Essex and they started the game positively.

But despite causing the Walden defence plenty of problems they were unable to find a breakthrough in the first period.

That changed after the break though as a shot that was possibly going wide was deflected in by Bryn Evans to give WGC the lead.

But this spurred on the opposition and after winning a few penalty corners they fired in an equaliser.

The remainder of the game saw both teams looking for the win but not wanting to get caught on the break.

This was a much improved Welwyn performance given the previous week’s result and they will take plenty of positives into Saturday’s trip to Bedford.
