Magpies Ladies Colts B 5-1 Thetford 2s
Despite having no goalkeeper, Harleston Magpies started off strongly, and the opening goal came from Lucy Chubbock within the first five minutes. Magpies had a lot of possession but Thetford defended strongly, preventing several attempts on goal by Magpies. However, Shirley McAllen scored from a short corner with an unstoppable strike, putting Magpies 2-0 up. The young Magpies team dominated the rest of the first half, but were unable to score again.
Thetford started the second half strongly, but this didn’t stop Shirley McAllen from scoring again from another short corner. Almost immediately afterwards, Thetford responded with a goal, after the Thetford attackers broke away from the Magpies defence. After scoring, Thetford came back into the game, and although Magpies missed several chances, Hannah Linger soon scored Magpies fourth goal from close range. Finally, towards the end of the match, Lauren Reeve crossed the ball and Rhian Earrye picked it up and slotted it past the keeper. A good game from both teams, with the final score 5 – 1 to Harleston Magpies.
