Harleston Magpies Ladies 6th team match report
It was an overcast, windy morning when we played the Hornets at Loddon. We didn’t have a goalkeeper and knew that Hornets were a hard team, yet, for the first half, managed to keep them well away from our goal. The first goal came from Dominique Dyball who successfully smashed the ball home from the edge of the D. During a short corner, Domique Dyball sent the ball soaring into the back of the net but it was disallowed! So the score at half time was 1-0 to us, which whilst fantastic to be winning, sadly wasn’t to last.
During the second half, Hornets came back with a vengeance. Their Centre Forward managed to break through our defence and with an empty D and no goalkeeper it was a goal-scorer’s dream. Hornets had quite a few short corners but our defenders were superb. Their next goal was also scored by a Forward standing ready to smash the ball home. Hornets then scored a third goal. However, a swiftly taken free hit found Arianne Dyball, who neatly passed it to her twin, Dominique Dyball, who scored our second goal.
Score: 2 – 3
