Slazenger EHL Women's Conference East

St Albans 4 Harleston Magpies 1

CLAIRE Beattie scored twice as St Albans Ladies recorded a morale boosting 4-1 win over Harleston Magpies. Tasha Dyson opened the scoring for St Albans in the 16th minute when she fired home from a penalty corner. Sarah Embrey extended their lead two minutes later when her shot beat the 'keeper following another penalty corner.

Harleston's indiscipline cost them dearly as St Albans secured the win with goals from two more penalty corners.

Beattie grabbed her first in the 44th minute and then doubled her tally ten minutes later. Frances Sumner pulled a goal back for the Magpies but it was merely a consolation. St Albans travel to Old Loughtonians next Saturday with push back at 1.30pm.
