HEADLINE: Did you know Jo scored a flick?
LEAGUE: EAST PREMIER DIVISION
RESULT: 2-2, draw
Krystal absolutely smashed a blinder from an angle only she could achieve.
Jo slotted a P flick in text book style.
Cambridge also scored 2 bang average goals (nothing to write home about).
Haz got a yellow cause the umpires missed a foul, and did not appreciate her helpful attempt to explain this to them...
Pies only had to go full Dad mode for a couple of mins!
Mikayla Tootill was POM, for some absolutely sick work in defence, and will be sincerely missed when she goes boozing round the states! Have a great time Mik!
Thanks to the 2s for their lively support.

WOMENS 3RD XI - 16/02/2019 VS LODDON 1 (A)
TEAM: Womens 3rd XI
FIXTURE: Womens 3rd XI VS 16/02/2019
HEADLINE: Norwich City 3rds and Loddon 1s battle for 2nd place
LEAGUE: NORFOLK PREMIER DIVISION
LEAGUE SPONSORS: EMPRESA LIMITED
A frustrating early morning fixture away at London saw City 3rds lose the battle for second place in the league - but with a game in hand, there's still an opportunity for City 3rds to regain the second place before the end of the season.
The first half was disappointing as the quick Loddon forwards broke through the defence to score in the first 5 minutes. A second goal quickly followed from a short corner. The determination to get back in to the game saw the midfield pushing to win the ball back and a great ball into the circle from Jenny Stanghan found Holly unmarked and her amazing first time slap flew into the bottom corner. Unfortunately the 3s couldn’t capitalise and Loddon managed to get a breakaway goal in the last minute of the first half.
The second half started with Emily firing the ball down the line to Niamh who drove down the baseline and slipped the ball back to Effie who scored with a hard push into the sideboard. Again momemtum was lost as a crash ball saw Loddon regain a 2 goal cushion with a fore hand shot into the corner of the goal. Norwich continued to play the better hockey moving the ball from flank to flank to open an opportunity for Holly to win a short corner. Florence’s rocket strike from the top of the D saw a Loddon player deflect the ball into the top corner. The next goal was going to be crucial and unfortunately it went to London as a charged down short corner saw the rebound fall invitingly to a Loddon forward to make the score 5-3. With 5 minutes left Norwich continued to create overloads and chances but we couldnt execute them well enough to narrow the scoring, with Loddon running out 5-3 winners
