Colney Heath Ladies finally married the result with the performance as they claimed a 3-2 win over Bedford.

The Lady Magpies haven’t played badly this year but have struggled to turn performances into victories.

The first half at the Recreation Ground though saw Colney well on top.

Kelly Hancock scored twice, heading home a corner from sister Lucy for the first and then firing in a loose ball following a scramble.

A sloppy start to the second half saw their lead wiped out with two goals in a minute.
