Brandon Ladies travelled to Bacton looking to maintain their excellent start to the season and looked the stronger in the opening exchanges, going two up with goals from Tash Rutter and Hazel Shepherd.
The home side then dug in as both sides battled against a strong cross-wind and pulled a goal back midway through the second half, credit to the Brandon side who stepped things up to see the game out for a good three points.
Brandon Lasses U14 beat Colt Jags 8-0. A good first half performance from the Lasses and six goals proved too much for Colt Jags in the first half. A well-taken hat-trick from Sam Cole, one each for Amy Skipp and Millie Bales, and a deflected corner from Chloe Slater ensured the Lasses controlled the game and went into half time with a comfortable lead. After the break Amy Skipp quickly added two more, giving her a well-deserved hat-trick, giving the Lasses an eight-goal lead with still plenty of time to go. Colt Jags dug deep and defended well for the remaining 20 minutes ensuring Brandon didn’t get into double figures. PoM: Amy Skipp, Opposition Georgia Dargan.
Brandon Lasses U13 played their first home match of the season against Cornard who started the stronger putting pressure onto the Lasses defence. Lasses responded with some good work from Millie Bales and Cara Stewart but a break from the Dynamos saw the ball go past the keeper to open the scoring. This unsettled the lasses and the Dynamos took advantage and scored their second of the game. Sam Cole was introduced into midfield with an instant impact, scoring three times to turn the game around, giving Brandon the advantage into the break The second half started as the first finished with the Lasses attacking with both Darcey Root and Cara Stewart going close but eventually both were rewarded for their efforts with a goal each, making the final score Brandon 5, Cornard 2.
