Berkhamsted Ladies 2nd team were unfortunate to lose 2-1 to Rickmansworth in an entertaining opening match of the season.

The match was fairly even but the home side topknot the lead from a short corner after 15 minutes. Berko responded well and equalised after a well worked passing move. Emily stormed up the wing and played a neat pass to Chops who drove into the box and then played a delicate pass to Megan who shot the ball into the net.

Berko had further chances in the half to take the lead with Sophie Lawrance going close. But Ricky took the lead after they were quickest to react following a fine save from Sam Pavlik.

The second half saw more chances for Berko with Charlotte, Emily and Sophie all going close. Despite lots of possession and chances we were unable to convert the chances into goals.

A great effort by everyone but player of the match went to Megan for an impressive midfield display.

Quote of the match: You've been Savaged, when Megan and Helen tackled the same player.
