ROYSTON were held at bay by Welwyn on Saturday, and could not find the back of the net despite playing well as a team without three of their regular players.
Neither side dominated the play over the course of the first half, with both teams having equal amounts of possession.

The visitors were at their most threatening when crosses from Jill Birch and Sarah Farmer put Royston in the running for an early goal, but it was all to no avail.
Welwyn's first goal was opportunistic and came from a long ball down the pitch which found their centre forward to beat keeper Ali Carroll with sheer power.

Carroll had her work cut out many times in the first half and made some fantastic saves, backed up by Katie Ellard tightly marking Welwyn's keen left winger.
A goal down at half time, Royston changed some positions and tried anew to level the score in the second half.
Kirsty Penfold had another great game and her hard work enabled Royston to push forward with the help of Birch and Farmer in the midfield.
Once again, Royston succumbed to a late goal resulting from Welwyn's short corner routine, effectively killing their game.
Despite playing until the final whistle, Royston were unable to do their teamwork justice and had to accept defeat.
