GORLESTON RANGERS GIRLS U11 were away to Norwich City, a match Norwich had to win to stand any chance of winning the title. It was Rangers, with Hannah C in goal, Neve, Mary and Hannah S in defence midfield of Jess and Jane and Gemma up front, who started the better. A cross from Gemma found Jane in the box who slotted home within the first three minutes. Under pressure, it was only the brilliance of Hannah C that kept City at bay. Rangers conceded a free-kick on the edge of the box Hannah C made a superb save, but Rangers failed to deal with the resulting corner and Norwich equalised. The second half saw Jane replacing Neve at the back and Megan going up front. A mix-up in defence saw the ball trickle into the Rangers' goal for 2-1. Rangers were distracted which allowed Norwich a clear run through to score for 3-1. Into the final 15 minutes and off went Hannah S on a determined run down the left and delivered a sweet cross for Aimee to slot home to make the score 3-2. For the next 10 minutes Rangers battled, passed and showed just how good they really are. They battered the Norwich goal, and a long pass into the Norwich box from Mary found Aimee who struck again for 3-3. Cracking finish to a great game. Girl-of-the-match: Hannah S.
BOHEMIANS U10 GIRLS were the first team to beat Sprowston this year and the opposition came looking to turn the result round.

At 2-1 up the Sprowston team went to five at the back for the second half. The Bohs were unable to get the equaliser and with three minutes to go threw caution to the wind with five at the front. Bohs then conceded two late goals as the Sprowston forwards broke quickly to slot the ball home for a 4-1 victory. The Bohs showed immense spirit. Team: Megan, Millie, Ali, Lauren, Bruna, Leah, Georgina, Georgia and Daisy. PoM: Lauren and Leah.

BOHEMIANS U11 GIRLS entertained a much-improved Brandon Lasses and began the game lacking determination. The midfield lost its shape, exposing the defence to continued attacks from the faster and more determined Brandon girls. As a result, Bohs found themselves 2-0 down in 15 minutes. A couple of substitutions and Bohs looked more solid, creating a number of chances before Millie finally pulled one back before half-time. The second half again saw the midfield going awol allowing Brandon to go 4-1 up. Demi made it 4-2 with her first goal. Bohs chased the game and went one at the back in search of the goals but Brandon broke away late on to make it a final score Bohs 2, Brandon 5. PoM: Demi for her hard work against the Brandon back line.
BOHEMIANS U11 GIRLS travelled to Waveney without Jordan and Millie - so a big effort was asked of the eight players available. And they gave a performance of true grit and determination. Bohs played against the wind first half and dominated, creating numerous chances for Demi to open her scoring account, but a late free-kick from the edge of the box from Waveney was the only goal of the first half. This goal took the stuffing out of the girls who continued to work hard without really creating chances, and another from Waveney sealed their fate as they went down to a very creditable 2-0 defeat. A serious shoulder injury to Emily marred a very impressive effort. PoM was the outstanding gladiator Rhianna and the day's leader Indianna.
DEREHAM WANDERERS U12 GIRLS were playing Kirkley and Pakefield for the second week running going down 3-1. Dereham started well with some good passing from Hannah and Anna with the ball falling to Rochy who lobbed the ball over the keeper and into the net. Kirkley started to step up a gear and pressuring Chelsea and Erren in defence with the equalising goal creeping over the line after going through Drew's legs. Minutes later Dereham conceded a second after good play down the wing. Dereham picked themselves up again with Ella's long throws causing uncertainty in the area but couldn't get the finishing touch. Mary came on for Rochy who was injured and did well. The second half started brightly with Anna going close and Erren making good runs down the wing. At this time the girls were getting cold and wet with the rain pouring down and Kirkley went and scored a third. Drew then came off suffering from the cold with Chelsea happy to replace her for the last five minutes. GoM: Rochy.
BRANDON LASSES U11 beat hosts Bohemians 5-2. The first 10 minutes of the first half was fairly evenly contested, as Brandon were testing the water, the back two of Ruby Roberson and Suzy Duggan were very comfortable. Katie Amacker was a virtual spectator in goal, the midfield of Abbie Craigen, Leah Zawiasa and Jessie Whybrow started to dominate and Millie Bales up front was causing all sorts of problems. On 10 minutes a great through-ball from midfield sent Millie through who shot wide, Brandon then stepped up a gear and on 17 minutes with the ball bouncing about the Bohemians box Leah was able to score, at the second attempt. With 20 minutes gone debutante Ciona Giles, who had come on as sub, played Millie Bales through who duly made it 2-0 to Brandon. The Lasses kept pushing and Freya Hayward was dragging the home defence about. On 25 minutes from a Brandon goal-kick, Bohemians raced forward to score to make it 2-1 to Brandon. But just before half-time some lovely passing between Millie and Jessie led to Jessie feeding Millie to make it 3-1. The second half started with Bohemians on the attack straight away and Katie Amacker had to be alert on a couple of occasions. In the 10th minute good pressure by the impressive Leah and Millie led to Millie scoring her hat-trick and Brandons fourth. Some bad defending from a corner let Bohemians score their second. This did not stop Brandon and with five minutes left to go came the goal of the match, a quick throw from Katie in goal found Leah who found Jessie who played in Abbie and she found Millie who made it five, this was good one-touch football. Leah could have made it six on the final whistle but for a good save from the Bohemians keeper. This was a good all-round performance from everybody. Final score: Bohemians U11 2, Brandon U11 5. PoM: Millie Bales.

SCOLE GIRLs lost to Norwich Canaries Green 5-1. The game started in a torrential downpour and Scole took full advantage when Vic Owen shot home in the first minute. Norwich settled down and got back into the game and they equalized following a defensive slip-up. Disaster then struck Scole when central defender Chloe Edwards had to be carried off injured and with no substitutes available they had to hastily rearrange their team. Norwich capitalized on this and took the lead and scored a third just before half-time. Using their numerical advantage to full effect Norwich scored again at the start of the second half but Scole then dug in and Tash Blakely and her fellow defenders Bea Blazak and Lauren Bond played superbly to halt the goal flow. With Megan Robinson making a string of fine saves. Scole battled courageously to match their opponents and only conceded a fifth goal with the final kick of the game.
