Herlings 4-1 Magpies 6s
Thankfully the grass pitch was not a mud bath and Magpies got off to an excellent start, playing together well as a team. Magpies took the lead halfway through the first half with a well taken goal by Zoe Cole. Soon after the re-start Herlings slipped in soft goal to equalise….more luck than judgement!
Magpies continued to dominate the first half and deserved to be well ahead by half time, but the score remained 1:1
Herlings came out after half time determined to swing higher and hit harder, taking full advantage of the grass pitch. A brief spell saw them put 3 well-struck goals past magpies. Liz Cole took a rather wild ball square on her jaw halfway through the second half.
Although Magpies continued to make some excellent runs forward, they were unable to convert any oportunities and we were disappointed to hear the fulltime whistle blow with a score of 4 :1 to Herlings.
