Ladies 1st Team v Bedford W 4-1

Harleston Magpies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents this week welcomed Bedford to Weybread and knew it would be a tough game. In the first half of the season Magpies came away from Bedford with a 3-0 victory.
The start of the game was pretty even and both teams created opportunities in their attacking half. After 10 minutes Emma received the ball at the top of the D and managed to get a reverse stick shot towards goal which was deflected in by Jess. Bedford continued to attack, but the Magpies defence held strong. Just before half time Emma again received the ball and drove towards the goal, around a couple of defenders and slipped the ball into the goal.
In the second half Bedford came over strong and pressured the Magpies defence in which they tried to absorb the attacks but eventually the Bedford found the goal from a short corner strike from the top of the D. This gave Bedford some confidence and they continued to try and find the equaliser in which Magpies managed to capitalise on the break twice before the end of the game with another goal from Emma and a goal from Lottie.

Squad: Lauren Barber (Capt), Megan Brown (GK), Katrina Sitch, Louisa Greenacre, Debbie Francis, Fran Burrell, Lara Taylor, Charlie Harrison, Lizzie Clymer, Jess Bloom, Emma Lee-Smith, Sarah Bracey, Kristine Ayling, Lottie Summers, Georgie Cantrell.
