After half time Walden increased their tempo, hassling the Stortford players into mistakes and their reward was a well-struck goal from Amy Huson following a short corner from Sophie Thomas.
Lorna Charge, Sophie Fry and Zoe Bull worked tirelessly in midfield looking for an equaliser while keeper Fiona Holmes made several important saves. However, Stortford rounded off the victory with a further goal in the last minute, which agonisingly went into the net despite a valiant attempt from Claire Pearce to clear off the line.
