Harleston Magpies 7 Harpenden 0
HARPENDEN, now condemned to relegation, took a young side to league champions Harleston on Saturday.
Given the gap in the table the result was perhaps inevitable but provided valuable experience for some of Harpenden's young starlets and they stepped up to the task.
For the first 10 minutes Harpenden held strong and even had a short corner of their own. However, soon after the home side broke the deadlock, beating goalkeeper Matt Beggs with a clinical short corner.
It was a sign of things to come with two more following very shortly from the clinical league leaders. The second half proved difficult for Harpenden and damage limitation was soon a matter of course. Despite conceding a hatful including one delightful lob from the Harleston striker, the team can hold their heads high after a courageous performance.
