Ladies 5th v Diss away L 1-5

Magpies 5ths ladies started their league campaign with a disappointing heavy loss, although the scoreline makes it sound like a drubbing but in truth the match was even in terms of chances.  The big difference was Diss were very clinical in their finishing.  The teams went in even at half time with a goal apiece.  Play was end to end with the Diss keeper easily dealing with any shots magpies fired at her.  Lapses in concentration enabled Diss to show the young magpies how to make chances count scoring 4 in the second half.  Magpies kept fighting until the end but couldn’t find the finishing touch.

Solid performances from the four new young players were very encouraging to see.  A strong performance in midfield from Honey earnt her player of the match which was well deserved for her tireless running.
