Harleston Magpies emerged unbeaten from their double header at the weekend as they saw off ISCA 3-0 on Saturday before grinding out a 1-1 draw at Trojans the day after.

The new partnership of Olivia Thomas and Cherry Seaborn worked well as they dominated the middle of the pitch against ISCA. Charlotte Harrison opened the scoring and they soon doubled their advantage when Lucy Whiting converted a penalty corner, deflecting in a strike from Jess Bloom.

Lara Taylor completed the scoring in the second half with a fine reverse stick strike.

Magpies got off to the worst possible start on Sunday at Trojans as they went a goal down within two minutes of the start. The visitors got back into the contest when Trojans had two players sent off for stick tackles as Harrison got her second goal of the weekend to ensure a share of the spoils.
