Women’s East Conference: Harleston Magpies come up short against the league’s bottom team
18:54 21 October 2014
Harleston Magpies slipped five points behind the top two in the East Conference after suffering a surprise defeat at Bedford on Saturday.
The hosts had lost all five of their games before the weekend but finally got their tally moving against a team who had won three of their games.
Harleston Magpies conceded the goal early in the game due to a lapse in concentration.
Bedford then adopted a strong defensive formation to counteract Magpies’ attacking play.
A few short corners were gained but good saves by the Bedford goalkeeper prevented them from being converted into goals.
The game was tense at times with both teams receiving cards from the umpires.
However, Magpies’ heads did not drop and they continued to have most of the possession but unfortunately could not equalise.
Magpies will hopefully put this defeat behind them when they move on to next weekend’s match at home against Horsham.
