East Coast (3) 2 - Beccles 3
24th October 2020
With a strong squad of 14 players, Beccles were hoping for a win against East Coast and they delivered! It was still a very hard task, but with a full squad this week, and with the support of the rest of the team, the Beccles forwards were able to create more scoring opportunities.
Gemma Powell beat her opponent in the D and opened the scoring after just 2 minutes, with her first goal of the season, to put Beccles ahead. Not long after, Hannah Eaton, positioned on the left post, increased their lead, after swooping the ball into the back of the net. It did not however go all Beccles’s way and despite everyone playing very well and giving it their all, it was a hard game with plenty of end to end play.
Karen Ingate, Emma Taylor, Jodie Sharp, Marie Seymour and Ali Foreman all pushed forward battling to create openings. However, this was also when Beccles were most vulnerable as when East Coast counter attacked, they moved the ball forward quickly and it was on one such occasion when East Coast counter-attacked and scored, making the half time score 1-2.
Overall, it was a very even game, and both teams had spells of playing well. Gemma Powell was on form and not long into the second half she got her second goal of the game. However, the home team scored again with 10 minutes to go before full time, but Beccles kept battling away and managed to hang on and take all 3 points.
Team: Lorraine, Mandy, Tina, Ali, Hannah R, Ali, Marie, Jodie, Emma, Karen, Siobhan, Hannah E, Helen, Gemma and Debbie.
