Lowestoft Railway Ladies get back to winning ways

PUBLISHED: 09:21 08 December 2017

Lowestoft Railway Ladies got back to winning ways in the Premier Division of the Empresa Norfolk League when they beat visitors Norwich Dragons IV 4-0 on Saturday.

The home team started strongly and quickly settled into their usual slick passing rhythm.

Forwards Kiri Phoenix, Laura Gell and Becky Howes pressurised the Dragons’ goal and the hard work was rewarded when Kelly Martin made a run into the D, finding Claire Ward who skilfully lifted the ball into the back of the net.

Railway continued to attack and won a series of short corners. A strike in the D by Jan Tizzard resulted in a goalmouth scramble and Kiri Phoenix passed to Claire Scrivener who slotted the ball home.

After the break, Dragons threatened the Railway goal, but Gardline player of the match Ellen Blackie stood firm, making some spectacular saves.

Defenders Lilly Collins and Katie Cross worked hard to feed the ball to Eva Harness and Becky Ingles to allow further breaks. Again, Railway earned a succession of short corners and when Tizzard struck the ball Scrivener pounced on the rebound to make it 3-0.

Railway continued to play with confidence, resulting in a fourth goal, again from a short corner, where Tizzard again found Becky Ingles who hit the ball into the back of the net.

Railway visit Norwich Dragons V on Saturday in their final match of 2017.

In East League Division One North Lowestoft Ladies had a good 3-1 win at St Neots. They play their final match of the year on Saturday when they travel to Wisbech.

In the East Men’s League Lowestoft Railway II were beaten 5-4 at home by Harleston Magpies V despite a much-improved performance.

Railway got off to a good start when Troy Allen played Ollie Payne through to drill the ball into the goal. They were soon pegged back to 3-1 and although Jon Wilkinson scored with a direct strike from a penalty corner it was 4-2 at the break.

Against the run of play, Railway conceded again but they kept battling, with goals from Payne and man-of-the-match Allen (penalty flick) reducing the arrears.

Railway’s first team are second in their division after winning 3-1 at Bury St Edmunds III.
