SCOLE GIRLS U10 beat Waveney Girls 5-1. A fine performance by all members of the team lead to a good win. Scole had many chances to score in the first half and Leah Constance opened the scoring followed by Anoushka Williamson who was unlucky not to get her hat-trick after scoring in the second half too. Scole's top goalscorer Emily Logan added two more well-taken goals to her total. A solid performance in defence by Olivia Davey, Katie Barrett and Carla Lummis kept the score 3-0 at half time. Waveney had some chances in the second half and hit the woodwork twice but some fine saves from goalkeeper Emma Rogers, who was player of the match, denied the visitors a higher total than the one late goal they scored.
SCOLE U15 GIRLS started the game very slowly and soon found themselves a goal down against a positive Jex Rangers side who were playing with a lot of confidence. Jex created several more chances and it was no surprise when they increased their lead with a good strike. Scole steadied the ship and did well to reach half-time without conceding any more goals. This led to a big talking to by manager Phillip Edwards and whatever he said worked because Scole started the second half like a new team and they reduced the arrears when Rachael Wall powerfully headed home a Vic Owen corner. The equaliser came when a Jex defender turned the ball into their own net from a corner. It was one-way traffic now and Scole took the lead when Rachael broke free from the Jex defence and confidently fired home. Jex struggling to get out of their own half. Scole increased the lead when, from another corner, Bea Blazak shot goalwards and Rachael completed her hat-trick. This was a great result by Scole and all the girls can be proud of the way they turned the game around.
NORTH WALSHAM ANGELS U13 GIRLS travelled to Norwich and lost 1-0 to Costessey Girls. Angels did most of the attacking throughout the match and it seemed only a matter of time before they scored. However,
some tough defending and good goalkeeping kept them at bay. The points were snatched away when in the final minute when the home side were awarded a corner and from the kick the ball went into the net off an Angels player.

DEREHAM WANDERERS U13 GIRLS entertained Mulbarton with Dereham looking to secure their top spot for the festive period. Lanti finished a neat move, Chelsea added a well-taken second but Mulbarton struck back with a goal. Chelsea restored Dereham's two-goal advantage for a 3-1 half-time lead. Bea picked up the ball around the halfway line and quick footwork took her into the Mulbarton area where she completed a great solo effort with a goal. It was difficult for Mulbarton to get out of their own half at times. Lanti and Bea got their second goals and Lonny scored to give Dereham seven goals, but it would have been more but for the Mulbarton keeper. Mulbarton got a late a second goal following a deflection off Merrick who was picked as player of the week for her outstanding contribution in the midfield. Final score: 7-2.
BRANDON LASSES U11 hosted Waveney Girls and lost 4-1. This was the return fixture from last week's match. Like last week both teams were playing good football. On two minutes though Waveney mounted an attack and scored. This only made Brandon stronger and they nearly replied straight away, with Georgia Dargan going close. Brandon pressure was growing with Leah Zawiasa, Georgia Dargan and Jessie Whybrow dominating midfield. Katie Amacker, when called upon, was making some good saves. On 15 minutes some good passing football by Brandon led to the ball coming to Millie Bales who scored to make it 1-1. Ruby Robertson and Suzy Duggan were having outstanding games at the back. The pressure from Brandon never let up, how they never added to their score was only down to some good saves from the Waveney keeper. Second half saw Millie going close Savannah Hatch and Katie Page put in some good displays but, against the run of play, Waveney made it 2-1. Brandon dug deep and passed the ball around well, creating chances but unable to convert. Waveney broke free and scored again. With the game coming to an end a bit of slack marking from Brandon led to Waveney scoring a fourth on full-time. This result flattered Waveney, a great all-round team performance. Final score: Brandon 1, Waveney 4. Brandon PoM: Suzy Duggan.
BRANDON LASSES U12 beat Sizewell and Knodidshall 5-0. Lasses got off to a good start with Ellesse Master setting up Brianna Jamgochian who put the Lasses one up. Amy Skip then but a ball into Ellesse to score and Chloe Slater then found the net after good hassling put in for the third. Chloe Morley came on for Brandon, making her debut appearance, and Charlie Reeves came on into midfield, both gaining valuable experience. Sizewell competed well and had their chances but Gianna Bly and Lucy Page both put in superb displays at the back and with Katie Meeson in goal kept a clean sheet. Lasses then scored two further goals in the second half, the first after Chloe Killingworth linked up with Brianna to play Ellesse in for her second and then Brianna scoring her second from a good one-two from a short corner and finish from a tight angle.
BOHEMIANS U12 GIRLS played away to Kirkley and Pakefield and won 6-0. The girls played with no sub again and worked harder than ever.

BOHEMIANS GIRLS U15 were at home to Jex, two of the fairest teams in the league. After last week's improved attitude and commitment Bohs were looking to replicate this and in the first half gave a sublime performance of passing and finishing which left their opponents totally bemused. Megan, who was awesome in midfield, scored a hat-trick, LJ who is now fast approaching her best scored two and Chloe, who likewise after a very long time out, scored with Chelsea adding a seventh by the break. Laura in goal did not have a save to make and Bohs changed keeper at half-time and Natalie took over. Second half the girls lost shape and discipline and Jex reduced the arrears with a superb effort from Sophie before Bohs asserted again and Megan scored her fourth. Then the goal of the game came from LJ who, from inside her own half, went past two players with blistering pace before slotting home. Megan scored the tenth, which was her fifth goal and came from yet another superb corner from Sasha, who was excellent in defence. There was good performances also from Sophie who has been so consistent this year, Marcie who played well despite being unwell and Neneh who is so tenacious. Thanks to Jex who played their part as always in a very entertaining game and deserved more from their second-half performance. PoM: LJ and Chloe.
