Proud home record is still intact

M&A PARTNERS NORFOLK LEAGUE: Evergreens maintained their 100pc home record in the Premier League with a 4-1 win over struggling Watton II.

A goalmouth scramble led to Tash Bates' strike deflecting off the keeper's pads to open the scoring but the hosts were lucky to go into the break with a 1-0 lead.

They came out stronger in the second half and a cross from Harriet Segasby was converted by Sam Turner to double the lead.

Watton pulled one back before Katie Taylor played the ball into Bates who scored her second goal with a great strike. Continued pressure from Louise White paid off when she set up Segasby to complete the scoring.

Harleston Magpies III scored a last-minute goal to come away from Norwich City II with a 2-1 victory.

Mapgies took an early lead from a deflected short corner strike but City did not let their heads drop and midfielder Caroline Illing converted a cross to make it 1-1.

The second half was end to end and right at death Magpies scored from a breakaway after Natalie Scurll had made an initial save.
