WYMONDHAM Ladies were unfortunate to go down 2-1 to Bungay.

Both teams were prepared to battle and the match started at a quick tempo, a tempo which continued on a sunny King's Head Meadow. The game was a midfield battle and it was 50/50 all throughout the half. The only real chance was Bungay's a free-kick hit the bar and then the follow-up hit a post. Half time score 0-0.

The second half started just as quickly as the first and once again it was a midfield battle. The game's first goal was Bungay's. The ball was played into Wymondham's penalty area and the bounce deceived the defence and the striker tucked the ball home.

Wymondham then had a penalty shout turned down when Emma appeared to be caught by the keeper, but play continued. Bungay added a second goal when the ball fell 35 yards from goal and she smashed it into the back of the net. Wymondaham continued to show determination for the final 10 minutes.

a corner falling to Louise, whose header was narrowly over and Laura Parry's shot was wide in the final seconds. Final score 2-1. This was Wymondham's last home game of the season and the attitude of the players was unquestionable and their team performance was as good as it has been all season.

Most Read

The team played as one and the spirit in the changing room remains positive. PoM: Gemma Hamilton, who bossed the defence, winning headers and organising, and took her goal very well.

The other outstanding player was Laura Parry whose energy and commitment was excellent. Wymondham are next away to Mulbarton.
