Ladies 5th Team Match Report 23rd September 2017

Ladies 5th Team vs Diss (Home (L) D 2-2 )

Another solid performance from the new group of youngsters against Diss who finished 3rd in the league last season.  Magpies pressed from the start but Diss went ahead against the run of play through ex-magpie Clemmy Ardley-Forder.  Once again the back 4 were very solid and broke down Diss play and put magpies on the front foot.  Disappointed to be one down at half time magpies came out fighting and soon equalised through Vanessa Vigrass.  Ellen Pope then followed up on a short corner to give a well deserved lead.  A momentary lapse in concentration allowed a Diss player to tap in a rebound to level the scores.  Magpies were unable to find the winner despite having the better of the possession.  For the second week running Sophie Govier-Schaay was voted player of the match.
