THE first goal Celtic have conceded for four games proved to be decisive as their winning streak came to an end.
That run was brought to a halt in the first half when Stortford scored but Celtic keeper Jack Mills and defenders Louie Clark, Charlie Bartlett and Jack Ison all worked well together to stop any more goals from the opponents.

Bishop's Stortford Rangers 2
DESPITE some well placed passing and defending from James Denman and Jordan Cooney, it was Stortford who took the victory on Saturday.
The first goal came in the first half from the half way line and soared over the heads of all the players.
Celtic keeper Ben Watson was unlucky not to save it but having lost the toss the home team started the game with Watson facing the sun.
The midfield teamwork was strong but not enough to push forward to score and the second half saw another goal from Stortford.

Stevenage Borough Tigers 1
WITH two players missing from their regular starting line-up, it was the visitors who started the game with more bite, winning a corner, the ball was deflected into his own goal off Robson's thigh.
From the re-start both teams were evenly matched, with Lovejoy in excellent form keeping the visitors at bay, while at the other end Norcross and Holcroft failed to hit the target on numerous occasions.
It was Robson, who making amends for his own goal, shot at goal, the ball deflected of the Tigers keeper into the net. Good teamwork was finally rewarded when Manuel cleared the ball from the home defence; the ball was picked up by Holcroft, who passed to Robson, who picked out Norcross with a fine cross-field pass who slotted past the Tigers keeper.

Stevenage Borough Blues 2
BASSINGBOURN'S B team faced Stevenage Borough Blues in the second game again it was the visitors who started faster and were soon 1-0 up.
Bassingbourn woken up won a corner, which was headed home by O'Connor, after a great delivery by Cook. O'Connor found the net again after converting a free-kick which Roope had won after a strong run.
Stevenage kept to the task and it took tough tackling from Smith and Roope to keep the visitors at bay, eventually Blues broke down the home defence and equalised.
The game continued in a similar way as it started with both sides sharing possession, until good link-up play gave Cook the opening to score Bassingbourn''s third.
