WYLAM Rockettes U12 Eagles went a goal down early against Heaton Hawks, but quickly got into their stride in the Northumberland Girls League encounter.

With girl of the game Millie Armstrong and Emily Dodgeon providing a strong defensive unit, the Falcons motored through the gears as they increasingly took control of the game.

They eventually ran out 3-1 winners with goals from Emma Thomas, Rose Rikkerink and Kathryn Bell.

Despite spending much of the game camped in the Cramlington Town half, Wylam Rockettes U12 Falcons created their fair share of attacks, with Amelie Scott causing numerous problems for the strong Cramlington defence.

But despite several shots on target, the Falcons couldn’t find a breakthrough, and settled for a 0-0 draw.

Wylam Rockettes U14 drew 2-2 away at New Fordley, after twice coming back from behind, with goals from girl of the game Charlotte Graham, and Louise Taylor.

The latter was quickest to react after the keeper managed to parry a Wylam shot, to score.

Wylam Rockettes U16 lost their cup quarter final tie away to North Shields 2-1.

Despite a host of attempts on target, and some impressive attacking play by girl of the game Stacey Billinghurst, Wylam could only muster a single Josie Fenwick goal as a reward for all their attempts on goal.

Wylam Rockettes U18 United once again came up against Cramlington Town, after several thrilling encounters already this season. This time they were away from home in a league fixture.

The match was a close affair, but Molly Hails scored twice to give United a 2-1 lead shortly after half time. However, as the game progressed, Cramlington turned up the heat and managed to score three second half goals without further reply to win 4-2.

Wylam Rockettes U18 Real lost 5-2 away at Cullercoats. Girl of the game Sophie Rodgers gave Real the lead, but Cullercoats equalised shortly before half time.

With the advantage of an increasingly strong wind behind them in the second period, Cullercoats scored four second half goals.

Nevertheless, Real were looking very dangerous on the counter attack, as evidenced by two great passes from Anna Robson and Rosie Bell, which swiftly turned defence into attack, and Sophie Rodgers scored her second goal of the match.

Last weekend was a fruitful one for the Rockettes’ junior teams, after ensuring several weather-related postponements in recent weeks due to wintry weather.
