LADIES' FOOTBALL: Seventh heaven for Swindon Town Under 16s
6:00am Tuesday 10th September 2013 in Sport
SWINDON Town Ladies Under 16s got their season off to a winning start with an emphatic 7-2 victory over Tilehurst Panthers at Linear Park.
With the game just five minutes old, Town took the lead through Jess Graham after good work in midfield.
More intricate play resulted in the lead being doubled by Karolayne Byrom not long after.
The home side managed to pull one back when a long ball was not dealt with and the Panthers centre-forward pounced to fire low into the corner.
After the break Byrom bagged her second when the ball was floated into the box and she nodded into the net.
Tilehurst reduced the advantage to 3-2 within minutes, but that goal only seemed to spur Swindon on.
Kathryn Bach ran the virtual length of the pitch before unleashing an unstoppable shot into the bottom right corner.
Swindon then scored three further goals in a whirlwind 10-minute spell, with Byrom completing her hat-trick and Amy Joliffe bagging a brace.
