Baldock Town Letchworth bounced back from a defeat with a hard-fought home victory over Evergreen.
With both sides occupying mid-table positions, it was important for both to get some points on the board.
The opening 20 minutes were an even affair with half chances at both ends. The visitors had a goal ruled out for offside but it was Baldock who took the lead on 25 minutes and what a great goal it was.
A short free-kick from Darren Matussa found Lee Rusbridge and the midfielder let fly from 25 yards with a curling effort that left the keeper clutching at thin air.
Baldock got the crucial second goal in the 50th minute, when Ross Haskins played a lovely pass in behind the defence and Harry Holland beat the keeper to it before rounding him and stroking home from a tight angle.
Evergreen had half chances, including striking the crossbar from a corner with 15 minutes remaining, but the Baldock rearguard held firm to secure a fourth league victory and fourth clean sheet.
