East League,  Ladies 1N
Norwich Dragons Ladies 1s v St Neots 1s:  7-2

Goalscorers:  Issy Wolfe x2, Maddy Reynolds x3, Olivia Thomas, Katy Hands
MOM:  Issy Wolfe

Norwich Dragons ladies 1s found their form this week, winning 7-2 at home against league
strugglers St Neots.  Determined to put an end to the last few weeks of lacklustre performances, the ladies 1s came out hard from the opening whistle, dominating possession for much of the first half.  The opening 10 minutes saw some lovely linking play between the midfield and forward lines, and some good early chances. Against the run of play, however, St Neots won a short corner, and found the back of the net through a deflection on the left post, putting them 1-0 up.

The Dragons kept their heads, however, and countered within a few minutes with a goal of their
own as Maddy Reynolds took the ball past one defender and slipped the ball to Lucy Morton,
only to receive it back on the p-spot and deflect it reverse side into the goal. Player of the match
Issy Wolfe added her own just before half time, receiving the ball at the top of the D, and taking
a reverse stick strike to find the back of the net and to put the Dragons up by 1 goal at half time.

St Neots came out hard in the opening minutes of the second half, and having won another
short corner, they converted in a carbon copy of their first goal, drawing things level. It was at
this point that the Dragons really hit their stride, however, and the next 35 minutes saw a feast of goals from the hosts. Maddy Reynolds found the goal twice more, setting up her hat trick for the day;  Issy Wolfe scored another reverse sweep after a foray down the baseline; Katy Hands got in on the action receiving the ball from Holly Setchell and sweeping it into the goal; and Liv
Thomas finished the day with a lovely piece of skill during a short corner play, eliminating two
players and slipping it past the keeper’s right foot. The forward line’s feast of goals was well-
supported by a hardworking midfield, and by some patient play round the back to open up the
spaces on the pitch. Overall, this was a much better performance from the team, and we’ll be
looking to take that into the last few games of the season.
