A fabulous competitive game of football which came close to your archetypal ‘game of two halves’ with Panthers controlling the first half and Hertford Town hitting back after the break
Panthers struck early with a goal after 1 minute when Mia set up Tiffany to slot the ball in the back of the net. `
Some fluid football played was typified by the move with Kiara, making her Black debut, slipping the ball to Robyn whose shot was saved by the keeper.
Panthers doubled their lead when Robyn played the ball into Mia who finished nicely.
And Robyn was on hand to lay the ball off to Charlotte to put Panthers in 3-0 at the break
The second half carried on pretty much where it went off. Panthers continuing to lay assault on the Hertford goal – Charlotte unlucky not to get her hat trick. On 57 minutes, Kiara played Robyn in for the North London side to go 4 goals up
The Hertfordshire side pulled a goal back and with ten minutes to go, they pulled the score back to 4-2
Hertford were throwing the kitchen sink at Panthers goal and with 5 minutes to go, Hertford had the ball in the back of the net but the goal was ruled out after a foul on Sophie and Panthers saw the game out
A great game of football with all 11 players playing their socks off. Thanks for Hertford for getting the game on after a couple of days of biblical rain. And for playing their part in a great game of football
