Magpies III 2 Watton II 2
Martin and Acock Norfolk Women’s League
MAGPIES welcomed Watton to Weybred for an early pushback, hoping to continue their unbeaten run and stay second in the league.
Magpies started well, putting the pressure on Watton’s defence, and were rewarded with a Dominque Dyball goal. Watton picked up their game and retaliated quickly, catching Magpies on the break and the away side capitalised on one of the few opportunities to pull one back.
This re-energised Magpies and Player of the Match Lucy Chubbock got a well deserved goal despite Watton’s keepers numerous saves.

Even though Magpies came out of the break 2-1 up, they didn’t seem to have the energy and enthusiasm that was shown in the first half, and the play broke down quickly and lead to Watton having a substantial amount of possession.
Good runs by Rachel Herod and linking play with Georgi Minta and Jemima Jacobs could not be converted due to the skill of Watton’s keeper, and Magpies tired further. Watton kept sustained pressure on the Magpies defence and managed to get the equaliser with 15 minutes to go.
