Norwich City show no mercy to clubmates

Norwich City 2nds showed no mercy on their 3rds as they won 5-0 to go into their Christmas break seven points clear of second-placed UEA at the top of the Premier Division.

They opened the scoring with a solo goal by Sarah Shelley and further goals by Caroline Illing and Rebecca Green made it 3-0 at the break.

In the second half Shelley struck again with the help of a lucky deflection from a defender and Lauren Lawrie completed the scoring.

UEA won 2-0 at Watton and third-placed Dereham 2nds beat their own 3rds by a single Lulu Humberston goal to keep up the chase in second and third places.

Meanwhile Diss edged a five-goal thriller against Beccles thanks to a hat-trick from Gaby Rolingson.

After a scoreless first half a tactical change to bolster the midfield paid instant dividends when Rolingson broke away to shoot past the Beccles keeper. Five minutes later she had her second, but Beccles fought back to make it 2-2 and looked favourites to complete a comeback win until Rolingson hit an unstoppable shot for a thrilling winner.

Norwich Dragons 4ths are well clear at the top of Division Two after a 6-0 thrashing of Lowestoft Railway 2nds.
