WYLAM Rockettes’ two U18 teams played out their second derby match of the season - and the result was a 12-goal thriller.

With the wind at their backs, Wylam Rockettes Real dominated the first half as a Sophie Rogers brace, and goals from Emma Boaden and a 20-yard left foot volley from Georgia Briggs, put them 4-0 up.

Katie Crozier pulled one back for Wylam Rockettes United, with another spectacular long range effort, which marked her first ever competitive goal.

The score was 4-1 at half time, and United worked hard to reduce the deficit further in the second period.

Charlotte Murray made it 4-2, before Real restored their four-goal advantage through Sophie Rogers and Georgia Briggs to make it 6-2.

Rogers scored an impressive solo goal to score her fourth, and Real’s seventh goal, but United refused to give up.

Murray scored two more goals to complete her hat-trick, while Bethan Newman also registered to make it 7-5.

It ensured a tense final few minutes, but Real held onto their lead.

Back in October, United won this season’s first derby encounter between the sides 3-1.

Coach Sean Hamilton said that while Real now have the bragging rights, there is a tremendous spirits between the two teams.

Wylam Rockettes U14 won their home match against New Fordley 3 -1.

Girl of the game Charlotte Graham starred in both defence and attack and scored twice.

Molly Pigg added the Rockettes’ third to secure the three points.

Wylam Rockets U12 Eagles maintained their good run of form and position as league leaders with a 3-0 win over West Moor.

Lois Hamilton made a number of great saves in the early stages, before girl of the game Rose Rikkerink broke the deadlock with a powerful shot from distance.

Despite Emily Dodgeon and Lily Waller carving out numerous opportunities for the Eagles, they didn’t score a second goal until 10 minutes from the end.

However, Rikkerink scored again and Katherine Bell raced through the West Moor defence to slot home and score the Eagles third.

Wylam Rockets U12 Falcons went down 2-0 to New Fordley.

Keeper Kodi Norman pulled off a series of impressive saves to keep Wylam in the game and the deficit to only one goal at half time.

New Fordley scored at the start of the second period and despite some excellent forward play from Rosie Pigg, who was well supported by girl of the game Amelie Scott from midfield, the Falcons could not find a breakthrough.

There was no game for Wylam Rockettes’ U15 last weekend. Their match fell victim to the wintry weather.
