Magpies started positively, making ground into the Harriers D, and forcing their 'keeper to make some good saves. The breakthrough wasn't long in coming, with the Magpies attack firing in shots, but they were held out, until a well positioned Zoe Cole swept in a rebound making it 1-0. Magpies then really began to dominate the game keeping the ball nearly entirely in the Harriers' half.

The second goal was a real team effort, the passing starting from the back and finishing with a Rachael Clifford shot in one fluid motion. Beth Alexander grabbed a third for Magpies near the end of the half.

The second half saw more of the same, a brilliant ball through to the left wing saw Rachael Clifford get her second goal of the night. Centre forward Kay Dennis made it five shortly after, and then added her second minutes later, a good shot to beat the Harriers 'keeper.

Credit must be given to all 13 players involved, it was a real team effort. Kristina Erith in the Magpies' goal solid and dependable as usual, Sandra Elliner, Liz Cole, Gina Scott and Spohie Moore in the defence strong and impenetrable; Treacle Snelling, Nic Beevor, Zoe Cole, and Beth Alexander working hard in the midfield controlling the game and Laura Schultheiss, Kay Dennis and Racheal Clifford combining well on the forward line. Special mention must also go to captain Tracy Reeve for her cameo appearance under the floodlights!

A much improved performance from Magpies, giving them confidence going into the crucial match at Kings Lynn at the weekend against the league leaders.
