Ashford Town (Middlesex) Ladies put in a dominating performance to win 5-0 against Clapham United Ladies at The Robert Parkert Stadium.
The Tangerines started with confidence with Ashley Cheatley, Sequoia Belworthy and Lavana Neufville all going close early on.
Clapham United were the team who almost took the lead however when an inviting cross was met at the far post only for the volley to miss the target.
The lively Samara Philllips-Hines however was the one who popped up to score her first goal of the season, when she latched onto ball in the box to fire in.
Cheatley was a constant thorn in Clapham’s side and finally wriggled free of the defence when Holly Isaacs’ solo run and through pass was met by Cheatley to slide the ball into the bottom corner.
Clapham came out fighting in the second period with great intensity and spirit. Cheatley however increased Ashford’s lead with a powerful strike that snuck into the keepers near post.
Neufville came close before Cheatley recorded her hatrick with a well timed finish at the back post.
The goal of the game however came with 15 minutes left of normal time. Isaacs picked the ball up and dribbled through the oppositions compact midfield and fired into the bottom corner from 25 yards.
A well deserved goal after working tirelessly throughout.
Ashford Ladies continue their league fixtures next week as The Tangerines face Kingstonians.
