Division 4 soccer report

New Norfolk goal-scorers Josh Young and Colin Banks. 
THE New Norfolk Panthers seniors side played Derwent United in some crazy weather at Tynwald Park on Sunday. While the sky was still deciding what it wanted to do, New Norfolk matched the No.2 ranked Derwent for the first 15 minutes before a couple of forced substitutions led to the Panthers losing their momentum.

Derwent capitalised by making the most of the opportunities in front of goal, putting five in the back of the net before half time despite New Norfolk keeper Andy Nicholls making a number of fantastic saves.

The rain started to pelt down during the second half and New Norfolk struggled to get its rhythm back as Derwent slotted in another four - two of them long-distance from outside the box.  The final 20 minutes saw a completely different Panthers outfit as they started nailing their passes, creating some run and playing the football they've shown they can play in the past few weeks. Colin Banks and Josh Young put two goals on the board to make the final score 9-2. This weekend New Norfolk travels to Olinda Grove to take on Uni in what should be a close game.
