Harleston Magpies Ladies 6th Team match report
Our first match of 2011, against Norwich City 5, was played at Taverham on a cold, sunny afternoon. We fielded a team of eleven players, but no goalkeeper, and with this in mind, played like demons, The first goal came very quickly, scored by Arianne Dyball from the edge of the D. Katie Webb scored shortly afterwards from a short corner, of which we had plenty. We dominated the game and Katie Webb scored the third goal. However, Norwich City’s Left Wing was fast and managed to score twice when the ball escaped our defence.
At half time, we felt very pleased with our playing which was excellent. Determined to keep the ball away from our goal, we deflected Norwich City’s shots, even during a short corner! Dominique Dyball scored the next goal through sheer effort, and was voted player of the match. Rosie Chubbock sent the ball home from the top of the D whilst Norwich City seemed to stand and watch it roll in. The final goal was scored by Katie Webb, standing ready to receive the ball next to Norwich City’s goal, after it had been passed neatly up the right wing by four players and across.
Score: 6 – 2
