A good run of results came to a crashing end for Colney Heath Ladies as they went down 2-1 at home to a much improved Bowers & Pitsea side.
The reverse fixture had seen the Lady Magpies win 5-0 but this was very different with the visitors starting with a purpose and causing problems all over the pitch.
Yasmin Cowley fired them in front in the first half after a mazy run and shot that gave Amy Butler no chance.
Colney shuffled the pack at the break and they drew level with a right-footed shot from inside the box by Rianne Townsend-Brown.
However, as Colney pushed for the winner, Cowley got on the end of a quick break with five minutes to go to give Bowers the win.
