Harleston Magpies 4 7 vs Lowestoft Railway Ladies 1 2

Railway travelled to Harleston in the opening fixture of 2019. With the majority of leagues not commencing play until next weekend, Railway faced a strengthened Magpies team.
It was Magpies who unsurprisingly, quickly pressurised Railway, flooding their defence and making early attempts on goal.
However, after weathering Magpies possession and pressure, Railway found their rhythm. Midfielders Laura Gell, Charlotte Soanes and Claire Ward worked the ball confidently up the pitch. Railway stunned Magpies when Ward and centre forward Phoenix linked up in the D,
and Phoenix was able to tap the ball over the line for Railway to take the lead. Clearly rattled, Magpies once again pinned Railway into their own half. Railway’s defenders Sharon Chatfield, Jan Tizzard, Katie Cross and Kelly Martin battled bravely, but were unable to prevent Magpies from adding two goals in quick succession. Just before the break, Magpies added a third to take the scoreline to 3-1 to the home team.
After the break, keeper Kerry Burwood was called into action once more, as she made some magnificent saves to hold a determined Magpies team. Despite the Railway’s efforts, Magpies again added two goals swiftly after the break. With the scoreline 5-1, Railway still continued to hassle and chase, and their perseverance was rewarded with a short corner. Scrivener injected to Chatfield, who found Becky Howes. Howes’ initial shot was saved by the keeper, but Gell picked up the rebound for Railway to deservedly pull a goal back.
In the final minutes of the game, Magpies once again broke and scored two goals to take the final scoreline to 7-2, flattering Magpies.
