ST ALBANS Ladies made it back-to-back wins with a 2-0 win over third placed side Southgate at Clarence Park.

The points were secured when Sarah Embrey smashed home a penalty stroke for her fourth goal of the campaign.

Emma Lythgoe doubled Harpenden's league with a reverse-stick flick from a narrow angle over the 'keeper.
Lythgoe then doubled her tally when Jacqlyn Clark's shot from a penalty corner rebounded off the 'keeper, allowing Lythgoe to roll it around the 'keeper and in to the net. Old Loughtonians reduced the deficit with a goal from a penalty corner, but Harpenden restored their three-goal advantage with a goal from Sabrina Jayaseelan. The opposition scored a second from another penalty corner but it wasn't enough to stop Harpenden taking the points.
