HOCKEY: Late winner seals Forest win

First published in Football

Waltham Forest ladies scored a late winner to beat Bexleyheath and Belvedere 1-0 in Division 2SE on Saturday.

Katherine Abbie grabbed the decisive goal in the last three minutes of the game to seal all three points and keep Forest in touch with the promotion challengers.

Forest settled well into the match but found it difficult to sustain their passing in the first half as BBHC disrupted their flow and made chances of their own with their hard hitting game.

The second half saw an improvement in Forest's play but the visitors continued to miss chances and BBHC almost capitalised with some good counter-attacking play.

Morag Campbell's man of the match performance in goal kept Forest in the game with some excellent saves before Abbie secured the win late on.
