Kings Langley Ladies miss out on second spot after defeat against Cranfield United Ladies
6:30pm Thursday 20th September 2012 in Sport
Kings Langley Ladies missed out on going second in Division Three of the Beds & Herts County Girls and Women’s League after being beaten 4-3 against Cranfield United Ladies.
Langley had started well and gone into a 2-0 lead as Jade North and Kim Nield both found the net in the early stages of the encounter.
However, Cranfield immediately fought back into the match and they reduced the deficit three minutes later with a well-taken finish.
Nicole Barrett then went close for Kings with a shot which drifted narrowly wide of the post.
On the stroke of half-time Langley conceded a penalty and the hosts equalised from the spot to send the sides in level at the interval.
The home side continued to attack Langley in the second period but the introduction of Sam Walters helped the visitors gained control.
However, two goals in the space of four minutes from Cranfield put them in a commanding position.
The first was a fine lob over Vicky Taylor before a close-range effort was added after Kings failed to clear a cross.
Langley pulled a goal back as Jess Earthrowl got off the mark for the season with a poacher’s finish at the far post but it was too late for Kings to search for an equaliser.
The league takes a break for a week and Kings travel to Stevenage Borough Ladies Reserves in the League Cup this Sunday.
