Panshanger Ladies prepared for their derby with WGC on Sunday with a 2-1 loss to in-form Evergreen at the weekend.
Evergreen visited Moneyhole Playing Fields with an impressive 100 per cent record.
Panshanger kicked-off and took the game to their visitors with some early chances for Ellie Burke and Janiece Allen. Evergreen chances came and went, with some expert defending from Sarah Mair and some key saves from April Spang.
Shannon Twigg got in on the act a couple of times, however her efforts were saved by the Evergreen keeper.
As the match continued Burke took advantage of a poor goal kick to skip past two defenders and was bought down, however the referee did not award a penalty kick.
Both sides played well, but it was the hosts who took the lead just before the break.
Kerry Twigg crossed the ball from the edge of the box and Burke found room to convert from the tightest of angles.
However, there was time for Evergreen to equalise before half time whistle which was a sucker- punch for Panshanger.
Patience Ndlovu came on for the second half at left back.
The second period started with Evergreen having much of the possession, and this paid off as they took the lead when their striker converted a shot into the bottom right hand corner.
As the match drew to a close there were a couple of chances for Panshanger with shots from Georgina Harvey and Fiona Roberts, however Evergreen hung on to keep their record alive. Panshanger could count themselves unlucky to not get at least a draw.
Player of the match was Sarah Mair who put in a solid performance at centre back in an unfamiliar role.
On Sunday, Panshanger host WGC Ladies at Moneyhole (2pm).
