Oaklands Wolves have started with a mixed bag of results in the Beds & Herts Women's Football League Spring Cup.

Their first match since December lockdown ended in a 3-1 defeat to Hemel Hempstead Town, although they were boosted by the return of fan favourite Kayla Johnson to the squad.

Grainne Kellett was rueing the lack of goal-line technology when her shot smacked against the underside of the crossbar and bounced down and then out and by half-time Hemel had the lead.

Hemel too had a shot cannon off the underside of the bar without a goal being awarded but they were 3-0 up by the time Ellie Lovelock scored late on for Wolves.

Lovelock was the scorer in Oaklands' second game although this strike proved decisive, giving her side a 1-0 win over Garston.

It came from the penalty spot and again it was late on, awarded after a cross from Ellen Salter was handled.

The victory means all four teams in the group have three points from two matches.
