SOUTH Herts crashed to their second successive defeat this year with a 4-1 loss to St Neots at the weekend.

Having been hammered 7-2 by Tring in their previous match, losing their unbeaten start to the season, Herts were hoping for better on Saturday.

The hosts put in a much improved performance and were unlucky to lose.

They were missing keeper Mo Gough, so Claire Moore stepped into the breach and made a number of fine saves during the match.

The Potters Bar side went behind to a goal from a penalty corner but fought back and created a number of chances of their own in the first half.

The second period started badly with Herts conceding a second almost from the restart as a ferocious shot gave Moore no chance.

Herts continued to look for goals but their forwards were lacking their usual sharpness and chances went begging.

St Neots scored two quick goals midway through the half to go 4-0 up, but Herts did not give up.

Anna Walker ran with the ball from near the halfway line.

She attacked the St Neots defence and shot from a wide angle, scoring via a slight deflection from the defender to give Herts a deserved consolation goal.
