TEAMS/REPORTS

September 14th   Red Rose 0    Hethersett   4

Hethersett were looking to start their season with a win in their opening game with Red Rose. Due to some late call-offs, the squad was down to 8 players but the team came out of the blocks quickly, creating a number of early chances, one of these being taken by Letitia Dye on her Hethersett debut. Into the second half, Hethersett continued to boss the game and create chance after chance, with Sophie Rock showing the same clinical shooting as last year, with 2 goals sandwiching an own goal created by a dangerous cross by Sophie Cooke. More chances went begging for Hethersett, including a penalty, but all the players can be proud of an excellent performance in the opening game.

With every single player in good form and giving 110% to the cause, the home team added 3 more goals in the second half, 1 each from Ella Stephenson (direct from a corner), Sophie Rock and Letitia Dye. Good solid individual performances from each and every player across the pitch, together with great team work, meant all were celebrating their highest ever win when the final whistle blew.

October 18th      Norwich City   7     Hethersett    2

In an entertaining cup tie, both teams gave their all. Hethersett began slowly, but were harshly given a goal against them. However, this just spurred Hethersett on, with 2 quick and extremely well worked goals from Ella Stephenson, set up by Sophie Rock and Sophie Cooke respectively. With half time approaching, Hethersett conceded a freak goal, and had to settle for a 2-2 half time score, which didn't completely reflect the first half. After the break, Hethersett conceded unluckily again, this time from a corner, before Norwich turned on the style with 4 late goals.

In a close, well fought game, both teams had few chances to speak of. In a bright start for Hethersett, an early goal game, Ella Stephenson latching onto a great through ball from Adelaide Mott and finishing assuredly. Soon after, substitute Sophie Rock came on and ran past two defenders from the half way line, before coolly slotting past the keeper. Things remained this way to half time. Credit to Dereham, who could have let their heads go down, because instead of Hethersett cruising the second half, they had a real battle against a spirited Dereham side. although Dereham couldn't really create many clear cut chances, except a late shot Emma Bunn did well to turn around the post.

November 8th                     Hethersett      1      Norwich     5

TEAM: Louise Pritchett, Constance Canning, Beth Evans, Adelaide Mott, Sophie Cooke, Ella Stephenson, Sophie Rock, Letitia Dye, Nancy Bussey, Danielle Homer
 
Hethersett never really got going in this game after conceding a lucky early goal direct from a corner. Norwich added two more well worked goals before half time, but were helped by a lack of Hethersett pressure. In the second half, Beth Evans scored her first Hethersett goal with a speculative long range shot, which took a deflection off the keeper. However, Hethersett couldn't build on this, with Norwich adding two more good goals to cruise to victory.

Hethersett were 2-0 up at the break through a Sophie Rock double, but Aylsham came back in the second half. In a game of two halves, the wind played a crucial part in the outcome of the game. With the wind in the first half, Hethersett were camped in the Aylsham half, but were failing to take the many openings created before substitute Sophie Rock stuck 2 goals in before half-time, ably set-up by Letitia Dye and Ella Stephenson respectively. However, Hethersett failed to adjust to facing the wind in the second half, and conceded 3 quick goals after a few mistakes. However, credit to the girls for battling to the end, and their reward came late on, with Danielle Homer scoring a deserved equaliser, and her first for the season, from an Ella Stephenson corner. The draw was a fair result in a game well contested by both sides.

R had another attempt at goal just clipping the post. Norwich retaliated and keeper Louise makes another great save. After a great run on the wing Danielle is tackled and goes down, Danielle was subbed by Erica Hail. Keeper Louise changed tactics with her goal kick with a short pass to Constance, she passes the ball up the wing to Erica who makes a great run and crosses to Sophie. R in the box, she turns with ball on foot and scores the second goal for her team. In the next minutes Keeper Louise was challenged, one on one Louise came out of the goal area slide tackled the Norwich forward and put the ball back up the pitch, Sophie. C mid/field tackles to steal the ball and crossed to Ella for a shot over the crossbar. Hethersett were given a free kick due to hand ball, Beth Evans took the shot straight into the box at Sophie. Rís feet, Sophie turns and curls the ball into the back of the net bringing the score to 3-4 with only minutes remaining. By this time Norwich players had been dropping like flies through lack of fitness and were subbed left right and centre. Hethersett had a number of attempts at goal before the whistle was blown, leaving Norwich with a 4-3 win. The whole team played the best football they've played all season, especially Letitia Dye and Erica Hail who both had a fantastic game which must have boosted their confidence tenfold. Keeper Louise was all commended for an outstanding performance in goal.
