Under 11 Girls at Watton Tournament

Magpies Under 11 girls enjoyed their second tournament of the season by coming runners up at Watton. The girls got off to a good start by beating Pelicans 1-0 through a goal by captain Kara Kilbourn.

Their second match was very disappointing in terms of defending. Norwich City and Magpies were quite well matched but Magpies missed some simple tackles to allow Norwich to score some very soft goals. Sophie Long scored for Magpies but Norwich won 4-1.

Some harsh words were spoken about effort and marking and Magpies played much better in their next match to win 2-0.
Magpies then played their best hockey of the tournament against Watton. However, a superb goal from Sophie Long was ruled out and the Watton keeper made a series of good saves.

The draw still left Magpies in 2nd place going into their last match v Dereham. This was another good performance but Magpies again had to settle for a draw as pressure could not be turned into goals.

The runners up medals were the first for this group of girls. Hopefully they can push on from here to achieve sucess in future tournaments. They are in action again this Sunday at Pelicans.
