More frustration for London Colney
11:40am Friday 21st February 2014 in Sport
London Colney were again denied by the weather as their home match with London Lions was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The Reserves managed to get in a game away to Baldock Town Reserves at the Hitchin Arena on a 3G surface last weekend.
The Blueboys kicked off and had an early chance when Josh Galloway broke clear but he found the Baldock keeper Connor Hills in good form as he pushed his low shot away.
Adam Halford tried a 20-yard effort which Hills managed to hold onto while Galloway found the back of the net but the linesman’s flag went up for offside.
Martin Collins went close with two good strikes from the edge of the box, with the first going just past Hills’ right-hand post whilst the second was just over the bar.
Galloway again had an effort on goal go close whilst Alex Davison, pushing up from the back, saw his goalbound shot deflected over the bar by a defender.
Jack Woods then set up Dale Etherington and his firm, low drive was pushed around the post by Hills.
The Baldock keeper made an excellent save as he pushed away Jack Woods’ drive.
Just before the break Dean Thompson tried his luck with a fine cross-cum-shot which again saw Hills make a smart save to his right.
In the second half it was the same story as efforts from Collins, Galloway and Elliot Smith were all saved by Hills as the matched ended 0-0.
London Colney remain unbeaten in the league having won ten of their matches.
