Oaklands Wolves Ladies continued their unbeaten start in the Beds & Herts Women’s Football League Premier Division with a 4-1 win over neighbours Colney Heath Res.
The sides traded chances in the first half but neither were able to find a way through, Millie Guest coming closet for Wolves with a shot off the post.
However, it was a different story in the second period.
Jessica Caveree had already seen a shot turned around the post by goalkeeper Sophie Moulding when Wolves took the lead.
It came from a corner, Holly Williams bundling in from close range, but Colney drew level almost immediately when a cross from Emily Frost was swept in by Elsbeth Cunningham.
However, hot-shot striker Ellie Lovelock put them back in front with an effort off the underside of the bar and Moulding had to make good saves from both Lovelock and Molly Slade before Oaklands bagged the best goal of the afternoon for number three.
Grainne Kellett delivered the final pass after a great move down the left with Georga Knight the scorer.
