Duo hit hat-tricks as Hungate show title credentials


Hungate U14 10,

Estover Park U13 1

Casey Ward made the break-through for Hungate and Ashleigh Burrell extended the lead.

Consistent team work gave Megan Ratcliffe her first goal and Jessica Cooper headed in Hungate’s fourth from a corner.

Ratcliffe completed her hat-trick and Ellie Bennington also hit three goals. Stand-in captain Kimberley Maynard, put Hungate into double figures.

Although falling to a crushing defeat to one of the potential league winners, Estover played a hard-fought game.

Every girl on the pitch worked extremely hard and battled for every ball.

Hungate’s ability and strength far outclassed Estover but with a two-year gap between most of the players the future is bright.

Park’s goal was scored by Danielle Green (pom) whose quick reactions powered the ball over the line after a deflection off the post.

Estover: Fran Plitsch, Maddy Garner, Carrigan Asher, Lizzi Jackson, Amy Newell, Danielle Green, Jess Harvey, Megan. Hungate: Casey Read, Aimee Ward, Megan Ratcliffe (pom), Kimberley Maynard, Yazmin Holmes, Chloe Thompson, Casey Ward, Courtney Wakeham, Jessica Cooper, Ashleigh Burrell, Ellie Bennington, Holly Tibbs.
