Rangers battle to fine victory
Gorleston Rangers Ladies team was formed this season and play in Norwich Division Two.
Last week they played Mulbarton Belles who were joint top. This was a very well-contested game from both sets of players who showed why they play the game.
Mulbarton took the lead, then Gorleston levelled through Sasha with a good strike and Amy made some superb saves to deny Mulbarton.
The game was looking like it was heading for a draw until, about a minute from time, Betty went on a surging run and tucked away with great composure to win the game 2-1.
Well done to both sets of players who all played their part in this match and thanks to the Gorleston linesman who helped out.
The club's Steve Dent club said: "Team player and manager Katherine is a credit to football - she put the team together and they are now playing in Norwich Division Two.
"They have been very commited and they have so far played four games, won three and drawn one, which is very good.
"Let's all remember Katherine needs support on match days so let's all pull together and keep enjoying football."

GRFC Under 13a Cup Final Runners-up
Deservedly suffered our first defeat in 14 months against a good St Benets Wasps 'A' side in NSYL cup final 2 – 4.
We started off very sluggishly and found ourselves 1-0 down in three minutes and 2 – 0 down after 11 minutes and never really got going. This season the boys have been superb, but on Sunday our many match winners all seemed to struggle looking heavy legged. With no one putting their foot on the ball, our play was to quick and passing poor as we tried to force play.
With defenders being the wrong side of the attackers, not standing up the opposition and going to ground, we were the architects of our own downfall for the first two goals. Charlie pulled a goal back from the penalty spot. HT 1 – 2.
Second half we didn't improve and the St Benets number 11 hit a superb brace of goals from distance giving goal keeper Max no chance to compound our problems. In between Charlie calmly slotted home from the spot for his second goal. George had a couple of chances, one of which produced the save of the game from the St Benets keeper. FT 2 – 4. MOM: Bradley and George, probably the only two boys who played to their normal level.
On the day St Benets Wasps 'A' fully deserved their win.
Thanks to Lindsay from Saks Hair & Beauty for sponsoring the boy's cup final polo shirts.
