Hellesdon Belles beat league leaders Costessey

Costessey 0, Hellesdon Belles

The Belles were at league leaders Costessey on a bitterly cold Sunday lunchtime.

The Belles welcomed back Oli Kober into the starting line-up. As the Belles dominated the first half Keri Boorman put Naomi Nixon in, whose effort was saved by the keeper but the follow-up was slotted in.

The Belles continued to press but it stayed 1-0 at half time.

The Belles also welcomed back Vicky Sherwood, with her and Kenna coming on and Oli going up front, they were denied a penalty for hand-ball in the second half.

The Belles defended superbly with defenders Bel Downing, Kim Tomlinson and Janet Barker, in goal, dealing with everything that Costessey had.

Heather Heslin won everything in the middle and deservedly won the player of the match award.
