Heacham restored their three-goal advantage before Ellis notched her second to keep the game alive.

That three-goal deficit came to the fore once again, until Bella Dennis unleashed a fantastic volley for KLSC to bring it back to a final score of 5-3 in a great advert for all that is great about the girls’ game.

Heacham’s goals came through Evelyn Brennock, Eloise Herring, Ella Shaw and Leah Belton (2).

In the final U12 match of the weekend, Watlington eventually overcame a plucky Necton side 5-0, with goals from Tia Rowland (2), Evie Drew (2), and Taylor De Nobriga.

In the U14 Division, Heacham hosted Gaywood, and got off to a very fast start with a Summer Mann strike.

Gaywood hit back with three of their own before the half ended though, extending their lead further after the break.

A Heacham consultation through Leah Beagles wasn’t enough though, with a final score of 4-2.

Gaywood goals came via Nella Anderson and a hat-trick for Miley Webber, which completed a great day for the club.

Early pacesetters Weeting Saxon completed a convincing 14-0 victory over newcomers Watlington in the other U14 fixture.
