Tier Five Wroxham were victorious in the day’s only game in the Eastern Region Premier Division.
A Lauren Bullard goal immediately after the break was enough to give The Yachtswomen all three points in a closely fought game at Colney Heath.
The win sees Wroxham continue their fine form now having won five consecutive games in all competitions and seven out of their last eight in all competitions.
The Yachtswomen aim to continue their good finish to the season which could see them finish third or fourth in the league and silverware is targeted in the form of the ERWFL League Cup.
In the Norfolk Local Leagues it was Mulbarton Belles who were the day’s headline makers winning 14-1 at North Walsham in their final game of Norfolk Women and Girls League Division One which included hat tricks for Rebekah Lake and Alanta Griffith and completed an incredible league campaign for Mulbarton winning 20 games out of 20.
Second place Fakenham Town won a closely fought game with Beccles Town, Fakenham led 2-0 thanks to goals from Sophie Lubbock and Shelly Woods but Beccles bravely responded to get the game back to 2-2 and Fakenham required a late winner from Holly Davies to get all three points in a 3-2 win.
Third place Dussindale and Hellesdon Rovers kept up the pressure on Fakenham with a comfortable 4-0 victory at Thetford Town. A hat trick from Vicky Leyer the headline act and Ruby Wilson getting the other goal. A full report on this game will appear on Impetus later in the week.
In the day’s final game, Bungay Town were comprehensive winners in an 8-3 success over Stalham at Rivers Park. Stalham made Bungay work hard for the points though in a spirited first-half display although Bungay quality won the afternoon. Lucy Eagle the hat trick hero for Bungay on a day of hat tricks in Division One, a brace from Gemma Foster, Ciara Flatt, Nicola Hazell, and an own goal completed Bungay scoring. For Stalham it was a tale of their two Charlotte’s as Fisher got a brace and Crane the other.
In Division Two, Leaders Caister were involved in cup action away to Freethorpe and were victorious 2-0 in the NWGFL Plate Cup Semi-Final thanks to goals from Laura Atkinson and Beth Turner. They are now in the final against Dussindale and Hellesdon on Sunday 15th May. Freethorpe deserves praise for hosting the game after Caister were originally supposed to be hosts, but their pitch was unavailable due to a cricket match taking place at The Allendale.
In the days’ league matches, second-placed University of East Anglia (UEA) were 3-0 winners on the road at Thetford Bulldogs.
A Kelsey Ramm brace saw King’s Lynn Soccer Club keep up the pressure on UEA with a 2-0 win at Horsford.
In the day’s final game, FC Viking Valkyries made it six points from the last nine with an impressive 1-0 win over Shrublands as Ben Binders’ team have a positive end to the season.
The Division Two title can be won next weekend if Caister take a point or more from their home game with Shrublands.
