MAGPIES travelled to Kings Lynn for a lunchtime game, crucially important in their push for promotion. Magpies made the best possible start, when a good ball through the middle from Tracy Reeve found Kay Dennis in the D to turn and shoot, putting the away side ahead in the first few minutes.

Magpies continued to attack the Pelican's goal, creating numerous chances, before they doubled their advantage, Kay Dennis making a good run into the D, beating the last defender to slip the ball past the Pelican's keeper into the corner. Magpies, staying strong at the back, pushed forward further but were unable to extend their lead going into half time.

The second half saw more evenly contested play, with Pelicans enjoying more possession, and forcing the Magpies' 'keeper Kristina Erith to make a good save. This seemed to jolt Magpies, and they pressed forward again, and midway through the half won a penalty flick.

Captain Tracy Reeve stepped up and coolly slotted the ball home, giving the away side some much needed breathing space. Towards the final minutes Magpies fought to keep their lead, Liz Cole, Spohie Moore, Georgina Scott and Becky Ford in the Magpies' defence all making some crucial interceptions and clearances, enabling the away side to keep a clean sheet.

An awesome, battling performance from Magpies, and a vital three points. Credit must be given to Zoe Cole in her new position of left midfield for a fine and hard working performance, and also to Harriet Flatt, Rachel Peters and Lisa Kent stepping up from the 5th's who all gave good, solid performances.
