Still showing signs from Tuesday’s Herts Charity Shield final loss to Hertford Town, the Blueboys had to battle for everything against 15th-placed Cockfosters.
The breakthrough came in the second half when Massey, trying to clear a cross, diverted the ball into his own net.
Manager Ryan Thompson will be looking for a better performance tomorrow night at St Margaretsbury where a win, and a Berkhamsted loss against Hertford Town, will see Colney jump into the top six.
