Unbeaten Empresa Norfolk League Premier Division leaders Lowestoft Railway were swept aside by a clinical Broadland side who came away from East Point Academy with a stunning 7-0 win.

Helen Brockington completed a hat-trick with two penalty corner conversions and a goal from open play.

That was backed up by some solid team play and creative passing which in turn led to goals from star player Helen Kelly, a snapped up half chance from Lydia Lawrence and goals from Dani Parke and George Stannett.

Railway had opportunities, but keeper Sarah Craig had a fine game to keep a clean sheet.

It was a first defeat of the season for recently promoted Railway, who had won five and drawn one before the weekend.

Norwich Dragons III are now the only unbeaten side in the top flight and they took over at the top following a 7-0 win of their own at Harleston Magpies IV.

Harriet Marlee led the way with a hat-trick on her debut while the other goals came from Hannah Ellis, Hazel Knights, Kate McKenna and Ally Windsor Waite. Aditi Naik also made her debut for the thirds while there was a return for Hazel Knights.

Norwich City III remain third, above Broadland on goal difference, after hammering visitors Loddon 7-2. Sophia Basset was another player to score three times, with Emily Greenway (2), Rachael Phillips and Olivia Greenway also finding the target.

Dragons V came from behind to draw 1-1 at UEA II. The equaliser came when Mel Widdows injected a short corner to Sue Cross who slipped the ball to Sophia Haenhelt. She passed at speed back to Widdows at the front post to slam it home.

It’s as you were at the top of Division One with leaders Carrow beating Beccles 4-0 and second placed Broadland II seeing off local rivals Reepham 2-0.

Nikki Baker put Broadland ahead and Abi Dennison doubled the home lead with a slick penalty corner finish.

Lowestoft Railway II beat Broadland III 7-2 in Division Two.

In the East League Lowestoft Ladies were beaten 2-0 at Newmarket. They are at home to Dereham tomorrow.

Lowestoft Railway’s men won their East League match against visitors Norwich City V 5-1 while the seconds were forced to concede their game at Norwich Dragons V.
