Colney Heath picked up three points on the road in their penultimate game of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division season on Saturday with a 2-1 win at Oxhey Jets.

The home side took the lead through Sean Giordmania before goals from George Devine and Andy Sears-Black turned the game on its head.

The Magpies were perhaps a bit unlucky to find themselves a goal down inside the first 15 minutes after a dominant opening to the game that saw Oxhey goalkeeper Matty Evans keeping out David Etheridge, Devine and Sears-Black.

The opening goal came from a Jets’ counter-attack, with Luke Jones threading a pass to Giordmania to finish from eight yards out.

It could have been two soon after when Kyle Johnson headed over from close range but this gave Heath the chance to punish their wastefulness.

Shortly before the break, the equaliser came through Devine.

Etheridge’s through ball slipped neatly beyond the Jets’ defence and Devine was waiting on the other side, where he elegantly lifted the ball over Evans and into the goal.

Jones and Johnson both had chances for the hosts before the half-time whistle went, but neither could find the target, with the former denied by a strong save from Tom Blackman and the latter firing just wide.

The game was decided with just six minutes remaining on the clock, when Sears-Black planted a powerful header into the net.

The striker had pushed further forward for the second half and had been a nuisance throughout, but had been unable to find the goal.

That changed when he met Danny May’s curling ball into the box with his head to score the winner in the second consecutive match.

Sears-Black almost helped to extend the lead even further when he headed the ball into the path of Devine, who slipped a pass into the path of Harry Shepherd, but he blasted over the bar.

Jets were denied a late shout for a penalty, meaning the points went home with the Magpies.

They will finish their league campaign this weekend at home against North Greenford United.
