Sprowston emerged 8-4 winners at the end of a Martin & Acock League goal feast at Watton 2nds to remain top of the Premier Division with the only 100pc record. Amy Butler and Fong Chung both claimed hat-tricks and there were two goals from Paula Kent.

Evergreens are second after coming from 2-0 down (Wendy Lake and Jane Proctor) to beat Reepham 7-2. They were 3-2 up by the interval and added four more in the second half.

Greens had a set-back before kick-off when their goalkeeper fell ill, allowing Louise Creed to step up from the second team to make her debut. Injuries then added to their plight but a hat-trick from Howarth - making it eight goals in four games - led the revival. Gordon added a brace, with White and Curtis adding a goal apiece.

Norwich City are still seeking their first point after a 3-1 home defeat to Broadland. All the goals came in the second half. Carre Mills put Broadland ahead minutes after the restart but Norwich City hit back almost immediately when their winger converted by the post. Kelly Duthie put Broadland ahead again as she deflected a Danni Parke effort wide of the City keeper and as the home side stepped up the pace, the speedy Tracy Buxton caught them on the break, carving her way through to put the result beyond doubt.

The second teams of Old Buckenham and Sprowston failed to produce a goal between them - despite Sprowston's 18 short corners.

While their first team were scoring seven their seconds went nap with a 5-3 friendly win over Broadland 2nds - Emma Gibb claiming a hat-trick.
