SOUTH Herts came from a goal behind to defeat Chelmsford 3rds 3-1 on Saturday.

The game started lively with South Herts having most of the attacking possession.

But it was Chelmsford that found the back of the net first.

A well-worked attacking set-piece left birthday girl Jo Spinks in goal unable to save the shot.

South Herts drew level with a goal from Caroline Stanners and before the half-time whistle went South Herts scored another.

The goal came from a long corner taken from the right by Sue Richardson and Porter got the vital touch inside the circle to put the Potters Bar side ahead.

Herts' defence remained composed in the second period to prevent their Essex hosts from scoring another goal.

A break from defence up the right wing resulted in a long corner, which Richardson directed into the circle for Sarah Jowett to score South Herts' third goal.

They are now determined to continue their winning streak at home to Newmarket on Saturday.
