Second half King’s Lynn tried to get back in the game which left them open at the back which Letchworth took advantage of scoring two more quick goals.

Third Game was against King’s Lynn B. With a poor display against Letchworth and after having a discussion about their previous performance against Letchworth with their coach Josh Taylor, King’s Lynn A was determined to get back to winning ways. Within three minutes into the game Alfie Poppy put King’s Lynn A 1 – 0 up. Three seconds later Ria Griffin added the 2nd. King’s Lynn B didn’t make it easy for the A team, they made them work hard. Billy Davey adding the third to make it 3 – 0 at half time.
Second half King’s Lynn A started well scoring by Ria Griffin. With the A team putting pressure on the B Team, Alfie Poppy scored another for the A Team to take the score to 5 – 0. The A team then became complacent leaving no defence, of which the B Team took advantage and scored. King’s Lynn A started to play well again as a team scoring their 6th goal, finished by William Dickerson. With only a minute left Ria Griffin scored the 7th goal. A great performance from both teams.
