Dereham Ladies 4, Chelmsford II 1
DEREHAM Ladies hosted Chelmsford and made heavy work of winning with two late goals at the end of the second half.
A win was vital for Dereham in order to maintain their challenge for promotion.
Dereham pressured Chelmsford from the start with Evie Van Poortvliet powering her way into the D which Hannah Palmer finished off to make the score 1-0.
Van Poortvliet could not be contained by the Chelmsford defence and her persistence paid off with a goal from open play after 24 minutes.
Chelmsford hit back soon after half-time and then the energy seem to drain from Dereham and they held on until 10 minutes before the end.
