Park Ladies return to winning ways against Ketton

Amy Hunt helped herself to a hat-trick as Park Ladies returned to winning ways after a couple of weeks off.

Park were missing several key players in their quest for more league points and had to move other players out of position.

But they needn't have worried and they showed their intent from the start.

They took a deserved lead with a quarter of an hour gone, a lovely chipped ball over the Ketton defence from Charlotte Marshall found Hunt and she ran down the left side of the area.

The goalkeeper advanced and Hunt managed to finish from an angle just before she was unceremoniously clattered.

Ketton tried to get back into the game but found themselves thwarted by a determined Park defence.

Park had a good opportunity to extend their lead when Erin Powell found herself one-on-one with the keeper but she couldn't take advantage and the keeper made a good stop.

Just before half-time, Park added their second after a fantastic interchange of play.

Georgia Stimson received the ball and picked out Powell on the edge of the box.

Her first-time ball across the top of the area found Hunt and she rifled the ball home for her second of the game.

Park were delighted by their first-half performance but knew there would be work to do in the second.

As expected, Ketton made a strong start and threw the kitchen sink at Park as they attempted to get back into the game, playing the ball around and pushing forward at every opportunity.

However, it would be Park who would add an unexpected third.

An innocent ball across the area saw the keeper attempt to kick clear.

However, she failed to connect properly and the ball rolled to a lurking Hunt who reacted quickest to slot home and complete her treble.

Ketton changed formation and threw everyone forward, winning several corners and free kicks but not really managing to trouble the Park goal.

Park kept pushing for a fourth goal.

Emilee Drayton received a ball on the edge of the area but her shot went wide, while Hana Howsam and Powell delivered some good balls into the area but Park unable to get on the end of them.

Ketton continued to pressure but the defence held firm and saw out the remainder of the game.

Player-of-the-match: Charlotte Marshall for a dominant defensive display.
