Newmarket 2

Norwich City II 3

The form book was turned upside down on Saturday as Newmarket slumped to defeat at home to basement side 
Norwich City II.

Newmarket started the first half strongly with Tania Fisher and Faye Andreou standing firm in defence, while at the other end Di Thomas had many good shots on goal.

However, it was to be Norwich, who were to take the lead by slipping the ball into the back of the net before the half was out.

Calli Can levelled the game up in the second half when picking off a pass that was made into the circle from a Norwich player.

Shortly after the celebration, Norwich came back and earned their second goal of the game.

Newmarket turned up the heat when Claire McDonnell had a breakaway and took a difficult shot from the bottom left of Norwich’s circle, earning Newmarket’s second goal of the game.

​With the score 2-2, Norwich immediately came back and earned their third and final goal of the game to take maximum points.

Newmarket Ladies III produced their best performance of the season, despite slipping to defeat against high-flying Haverhill II.
