MIXED A TEAM REPORT 18TH FEBRUARY 2018

Mixed A Team v Bury st Ednunds (Away (EHC) W 11-0)

Harleston Magpies Mixed A team sponsored by Parsons Estate Agents traveled to Bury St Edmunds to play in the third round of the Mixed Competition.

Magpies started strongly but two early chances went the wrong side of the post, but soon afterwards Sam Paterson showed the rest of the team how to get it in the right side of the post. He then showed the team again for goal number 2. Shortly afterwards Simon Hipwell finally finished one of his many chances. With Magpies moving the ball quickly this caught Bury out and Lucy Whiting found space to drive the baseline and with a touch from a defender helped beat the Bury keeper. A short corner was then awarded and Lucy deflected in her usual style. Just before half time Richard Larkin got his goal after having a few shots saved beforehand. Half term Magpies lead 6-0.

In the second half Magpies came out just as strong wanting to score more goals. Early on Magpies were awarded a short corner and Stu Field deflected in the shot on the left post. Simon then scored his second of the game to make it 8-0. Lauren Rowe then scored a drag flick high into the net for her first goal of the game. Sam Paterson then beat a couple of the Bury defenders to then have a shot going goal bound for his hat trick nicked on the line by Simon for his hat trick instead. Towards the end of the game after an initial shot was saved Lauren Rowe then scored her second of the game with a reverse stick hit. 

Final score 11-0.
