Tough finale for Bungay
PUBLISHED: 16:29 21 March 2012
Bungay Town Ladies’ first season in the Eastern Region League came to an sad end on Sunday with a 6-0 defeat to the already crowned league champions Great Shelford.
But it was not until well into the second half when heads went down and Bungay conceded four late goals that the score began to look a one sided, as the rest of the game beforehand Bungay had been giving as good as they got from a team that had won all previous games this season.
From the start Great Shelford were allowed to look a good side but gradually Bungay realised they could match them with a bit of extra endeavour, but on the half hour Great Shelford’s direct winger was allowed to cross for a forward to roll the into the corner to open the scoring, from then on Bungay took the game to their high-flying opponents and did themselves proud to be so close at half time.
But soon after the restart their season long problem of defending from corners came back and a Bungay player headed into her own net, this seemed to deflate the Team spirit of Bungay as Shelford began to control the game and scored four late goals to finish off the Bungay season on a low point.
Special mention to Emma Harvey in goal for coming straight back in from a broken arm to give an assured display.
