Harleston head into Women’s East Conference break on back of defeat at Wimbledon

Harleston Magpies Ladies went into their mid-season break on a losing note after going down 2-0 at Wimbledon.
Emma Lee-Smith was carded twice in opening stages, leaving Magpies down to 10 for a short time. Wimbledon built up momentum and attacking play, causing pressure on the Magpies' midfield and defence, but they held strong, with Charlotte Lee-Smith making some great saves.
As Wimbledon pushed more players forward the Magpies' defence finally broke and the hosts took the lead. Continuing this momentum Wimbledon quickly scored again to take command before the break.
Magpies regained composure in the second half and played how they know they can. They regained and kept most of the possession, creating chances from short corners and in open play. However, Wimbledon's defence held strong and a goal would not go in for Magpies.
The team kept their heads up and never gave up but the luck did not run their way. The ladies now go into the indoor season and hopefully will do as well as they did last year.
