Ladies 7th Team Match Report 7th October 2017

Ladies 7th Team vs UEA 4th Team (Away (L) L 0-3)

The match began with just ten Magpies’ players compared to a UEA squad of fifteen.  Right from the start, UEA took control and we struggled to get the ball into their half of the pitch.  Katie Davy, our young goalkeeper, played superbly and never gave up.  However, when we managed to get the ball in UEA’s circle, Jo Meyer struck the ball hard at the goal but it hit the keeper’s leg and narrowly missed.  UEA scored two goals during the first half.

Karen Ray advised us to block UEA’s passes and a loyal spectator told us to keep a tight formation.  With this in mind we kept control of the ball and Megan Beckett made some fine runs.  The defence played well and kept the ball away from the circle.  However, UEA were awarded a short corner and scored a third goal from this.  The game was really enjoyable and UEA were a friendly team.
