Harleston Magpies Ladies 6th team match report
Our match against Norwich City 5 was played under floodlights. Norwich swiftly scored the first goal from a cross to a player waiting to push the ball home. This galvanised us into action and Jodie Guest dribbled the ball along Norwich’s back line and neatly scored. Shortly afterwards, Katie Webb smashed the ball home from a short corner taken by Natasha Stead, not once, but twice! During the first half, however, Norwich scored again from point blank range whilst our defenders were resting on their laurels.
So during the second half, we aimed to mark Norwich’s fast forwards, although they did manage to score again. However, we were one step ahead and Katie Webb scored a hat-trick from another short corner. Play was fast and furious and some fine runs were made by Jodie Guest (voted player of the match) and Charlie Copsey. Karen Hunt provided a solid defence and Jessica Harvey, our goalkeeper, was a star. Vanessa Vigrass scored the final goal from an angled shot at the edge of the D.
