Beccles/Bungay area notes
LODDON GRASSHOPPERS U15 GIRLS came defiantly back from a 7-1 defeat at Shrublands on Friday (although the goal of the season was scored in that game when Becky Carver volleyed a ball from her own half to see it fly into the Shrubland goal top corner) to take Swanton Herons to a 1-1 draw.
LODDON GRASSHOPPERS U15 GIRLS came defiantly back from a 7-1 defeat at Shrublands on Friday (although the goal of the season was scored in that game when Becky Carver volleyed a ball from her own half to see it fly into the Shrubland goal top corner) to take Swanton Herons to a 1-1 draw. Swanton went ahead and then a corner from Nicola Payne saw Lauren Moore volley to Jessica Weston who calmly slotted the ball into the net. The girls went into the second half with Swanton awarded a penalty which went wide. Terrific keeping from Loddon's Megan Knights ensured Loddon a point.

ST BENETS WASPS U12A defeated Pakefield A for the second time in a week in this League match at the Nest. Wasps gained an early lead after a cross from TGC and cool finish from Chris. Wasps enjoyed the lions share of possession but it was not until the second half when Steve converted another chance to put the game beyond Pakefield. The defence deserved their clean sheet with Tom outstanding throughout. Special mentions for Luke and Cieran who also had excellent games. Final Score: Wasps 2, Pakefield 0. In their second match Wasps played out a nil-nil thriller with Waveney A in this top of the table clash at the Wasps nest. Wasps attacked and Cieran sent a bullet header just wide. Waveneyhit the bar and almost scored from a free-kick. Wasps defence of Evan, Tom, Jordan, Luke and Wolfie recorded their third clean sheet in a row. Wasps countered strongly and had several good chances. Wasps dominated the second half but were unable to convert a procession of chances including a free-kick from Steve that hit the post and a corner from TGC that was cleared off the line. The Waveney keeper had a fine game. Waveney almost snatched it at the end with a header but were thwarted by a superb save by Wolfie. The whole team deserves credit for a tremendous performance as does Waveney for contributing to an excellent match.
ST Benets Wasps U9A won away to Hemsby Hornets A 4-3. Hemsby chipped over the bar then scored with a shot that James nearly stopped. Ollie raced down the wing, delivering to Harry whose shot was blocked by the keeper, the deflection falling for Harry to score the equalizer. Wasps settled into their game making clever use of the huge pitch. James used his goal kicks to put the ball out wide to Ollie or Max. Max worked hard winning vital tackles and blocks. Sam did a great job. Jamie won a great tackle and continued to defend well. Max took the ball on and crossed for Harry to crack a shot into goal off the post to put Wasps 2-1 ahead at half-time. Wasps had to work hard as Hemsby turned up the pressure. James pushed a shot wide for a corner which he caught safely. Dan' shot was blocked but Harry appeared to kick the rebound into goal for his hat-trick. Another run from Harry won a corner. He delivered with power and Jamie raised his foot to slow it, sending the ball towards goal. A headed clearance failed and the ball crossed the line to put Wasps 4-1 up. Hemsby surged into Wasps' half and were rewarded when a shot from distance pulled a goal back for them. A Hornets corner looked harmless until the ball bobbled into the air and a clever nod into goal put Hemsby right back in the game. Wasps stood firm winning several corners. Liam and Jamie both stood up well to win possession as Hemsby threw everything forward.
