When these two teams meet in the league it is normally extremely competitive but Beccles came out on top on this occasion scoring 6 goals to Herlings 1. Beccles adapted well to the grass surface, controlling the raised balls nicely. Beccles scored two goals very early on through Jodie Sharp and Ruth Swann, but both were deflected in by one of the home team’s defenders. Herlings put the pressure on for a while after Beccles had taken a 2-0 lead, but the Beccles defence coped very well. Sara Grant had an excellent game in the role of sweeper, halting the opposition and distributing the ball to her team-mates. The midfield players, Ali Foreman Jodie Sharp and Ruth Swann, all made excellent runs as they ran at the defence, weaving their way passed the opposition. The game was very lively resulting in the umpires issuing two green cards to one player from each team. This meant each player had a two minute suspension, a rare occurrence for the Beccles team. Right on 35 minutes, Jodie Sharp put Beccles further ahead giving them a 3-0 lead. Herling’s pulled one back 20 minutes into the second half, with a very well hard struck shot, but Beccles soon came at the Herling’s defence again. Vicki Goddard received the ball from a Debbie Mann pass, right in front of the keeper, who she beat to make the score 4.1. A penalty corner resulted in Max Gibbs shot hitting the post and falling to the ideally place Hannah Eaton for her first goal of the game. The final goal of the game right on full time came from Debbie Mann’s pass to the unmarked Ruth Swann who picked up the ball just outside the D, and her subsequent shot gave Beccles another 6 goal tally two weeks running, and all 3 points. Beccles remain in 4th position with 4 games in hand.
