Magpies III 0 Panthers 2

Martin and Acock Norfolk Women’s League

Premier Division

MAGPIES hosted Panthers for an early push back, looking for another victory to follow on from last week. The first quarter was very evenly contested, both sides making some good runs and passes, and both had chances, but it was Panthers who broke the deadlock.

Magpies seemed to drop their heads for the rest of the half, but still held out to go into the break 0-1 down. Coming back out Magpies again started strong, putting some pressure on the opposition, but Panthers broke well from their defensive end and gained a short corner, which was saved by Magpies, but the ball was kept near the Magpies’ goal.

A succession of short corners followed and inevitably led to another Panthers goal. The last 20 minutes were ferociously fought out between the sides, and Magpies were unlucky not to get a consolation goal.

Next week Magpies host Dereham III, for a lunch time push back, and hope to gain some much needed points.
