Mid Norfolk Youth League U15
Dersingham Rovers 10
Rovers used this game to rest some of their regular players with a view to their upcoming games but still managed to run out comfortable winners.
The first half was quiet with Dersingham controlling the game but failed to convert most of their chance to only go in at 2-0.
In the second half the visitors really started to press forward and passed the ball around well. Goals came at regular intervals with the pick being one of Jack McGee’s brace. However the biggest cheer of the day was for Eliza McDonald with her first for the club.
Goals for Dersingham came from Cam Smeaton (2), Ben Welch (3), Jack McGee (2), Noah Handly, Jack Hazel and Eliza McDonald.
Although the Rovers controlled the whole game mentions must go to the Denver keeper who, despite the scoreline, had a superb game; the Denver manager who refereed the game well; and also the whole Denver side who never gave up during the game.
Downham Town Blues 4 Walpole 0
Downham Town Blues had to work hard to break down a well-organised Walpole team and come away with the three points.
The only goal in a tight first half came when Ben Terry headed home Harrison Brant’s excellent cross.
It took Downham until deep into the second half to add to their tally, but the second goal eventually came when Jevan Cook converted Terry’s low corner.
Terry then scored the goal of the match, latching onto a through ball from Sam Mcdonnell before beating the goalkeeper with an exquisite lob. Brant completed the scoring with a near-post finish.
Walpole never gave up and launched attacks throughout the match.
But they were thwarted by Downham’s strong defence and a solid performance by goalkeeper Elliot Phillips, earning another clean sheet.
