Jack Woods’ brace sent London Colney through to the final of the SSML Challenge Trophy on Tuesday night at the expense of Leverstock Green.

The two sides had drawn 2-2 in the Premier Division on Saturday after league leaders Colney had been two goals up, but this time there was a clear winner.

There were no goals in the first half, but finally one did come after the break.

Dave Parkinson played the ball out wide to Alfie Osborne who quickly played into the box to Woods who drilled it low past keeper Mark Berg from 12 yards.

On 72 minutes goal number two arrived. Dan Power pushed forward from deep, played the ball to Parkinson who knocked it into the path of Woods and he fired low from an acute angle past Berg to win the tie and secure a final spot against Thame Rangers.

This Saturday the Blueboys return to league action at home to London Tigers.
