Shortly after Chelsea King made it 2-0 with a dipping shot. Skipper Faye Kowalewsky made it three when she picked up a loose clearance and smashed it home. Chloe Stanborough jinked into the box and slotted home after 25 minutes.

With some heavy challenges flying in, a long range free kick gave keeper Jamie-Leigh Mitchell no chance, and shortly after the hosts added a penalty.

The ‘Fenladies’ kept the home team pressed deep in their half for nearly the entire second half.

Kowalewsky netted from wide on the right, Stanborough added her second with a nice finish and Swinden curled in the pick of the goals after neat linking play. Aisling Ryan slotted home after a scrambled corner, while player of the match Kowalewsky completed her hat-trick.

Next Sunday the ladies host the only other unbeaten side in their league, Ketton, 2pm KO.

It would be great to see some support for the ladies as they look to strengthen their position in the league.
