U14 Girls HA Cup

Pelicans 1 Norwich City 7

This was a game played at an incredible pace with fabulous passing from both sides.

Although younger and smaller than their Norwich counterparts Pelicans battled for every ball. Norwich finally broke the deadlock and scored another two goals.

Pelicans were eventually rewarded when a superb cross from Holly Jillings on the left found Sophia Basset at the far post who calmly slotted the ball home.

At 4-1 down at half time heads could have easily dropped but Pelicans took the game to Norwich creating some chances of their own.

Norwich replied with a well worked short corner goal but were then pegged back for a long spell until deep into the second half when Norwich scored two more goals.

Mikayla Glover was outstanding in goal and outfield every single player gave 100 per cent.
