Ladies 3 v North Norfolk D 1-1
The ladies 3’s welcomed North Norfolk to the nest on a very quiet day at the club. Magpies started a persistent attack through the north Norfolk players having many chances on goal, but consistently being stopped by their goalie.
All the players in the team worked extremely hard in the heat, especially Katie Woollatt, Plum, Betsy, Eva and Sophie, working from end to end chasing down the play. After a swift counter attack, Sarah Legg had a hard shot on goalie, with Eva Harness ensuring the goal to take the score to 1-0.
Plenty of penalty corners were given against magpies but the strong defence of Rachel Baynes, Catherine Kilbourn, Sophie Govier-Schaay and Emily Woollatt made sure that none were converted.
As the game went on, the tiredness hit and a slight lack of concentration in the team meant that North Norfolk were able to convert a drawing goal in the last 2 minutes of the game.
Leaving the final score as 1-1.
The teams man of the match was awarded to Alice Wells (aka “The Wall”), who played amazingly in goal, keeping us in the game a number of times and making some magical saves. She’s a keeper we are looking forward to having next week as we take on Dereham 2’s at the nest.
