The much anticipated Herts derby between 2nd placed Cheshunt and top of the table Herts Vipers delivered an excellent match between the two favourites for the league title.

Cheshunt, with new signing Victoria Wotton making her Amber debut, started the strongest, and went 1-0 up after only 13 minutes, when top scorer Fran Gamble found the back of the net to add to her impressive goal tally this season.

Herts Vipers pressed for the equaliser, but with another seven shots on goal between the two sides in the first half, the defences held strong and Cheshunt went into the break with a slender 1-0 lead.

The second half started much like the first ended, with both teams, making the most of the multiple substitutions allowed, had plenty of chances to score. It was the Vipers who managed the next goal, when on 64 minutes, an unfortunate own goal by Kellly Smith who whilst attempting a clearance headed the ball into her own net.

With the clock ticking, it was the Ambers who scored next when Karesha Iton struck on 78 minutes for the hosts to once again take the lead.

With the match 3 minutes into time added on, Vipers substitute, Hall scored with an excellent strike from outside of the box with almost the last kick of the match.

The match finished 2-2 and with both sides still unbeaten in the league, Herts Vipers stay top with 10 points from 4 matches, and Cheshunt stay second with 9 points from 5.
