LEMSFORD Pumas Under-14s got their first win of the season, 2-1 against Gosling Youth, in their last match of the season in Division One of the Mid Herts Rural Minors League.
Both sides were already consigned to relegation, and this game was a real bottom-of-the-table clash which started brightly, regardless of the rain at the Gosling home pitch.
Stuart Thomas got the opener from close-in with a header over the stranded keeper.
Lemsford dictated the pace and had the greater possession in the first half with only 10 players available.

But Gosling rallied and came close to scoring but for dogged defending from Joe Hart and Andrew Evans and safe hands from Dean Goodwin.
The Pumas worked hard to rally on the counter-attack and eventually got a break with a second goal coming from Stuart Thomas.
Gosling scored a consolation goal with a header from a free-kick but it was too little to late as Lemsford claimed their first win of the league campaign.
