WOMEN'S FOOTBALL: A goal every four minutes as Lavington are thrashed by Spitfires reserves
6:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
SWINDON Spitfires reserves averaged a goal every three minutes and 45 seconds as they annihilated Lavington 24-1.
Emma Pinkney hit the bar before Spitfires got their first on seven minutes, as captain Zofie Stepien found Hook to slot home.
Stepien was involved with the second as her headed pass put Pinkney one-on-one with the keeper and she calmly fired into the net.
Morgan Whitaker’s cross allowed Shona Hanlon to net from close range before Pinkney rattled the bar.
A powerful shot from Kristina Gough flew through a crowded box and into the net for number four, before a diving header from Hanlon extended the advantage.
Stepien added another and helped Hook score her second, while Pinkney laid on the pass for Hanlon to complete her hat-trick.
Hanlon then added two further efforts to take her personal tally to five and make it 10-0 at half-time.
Within three minutes of the restart, Hook’s cross found Gough to head home and Gought then turned provider as Stepien slammed home from close range.
Whitaker tucked away Spits’ 13th of the day before helping Gough to her hat-trick.
Jody Nicholls fired home from range and Victoria Parry increased Lavington’s misery, although they did manage a goal themselves when Hanlon - back between the sticks - was beaten.
Hook hit straight back and Rachel Eley sent home number 18, before Hook completed her five-goal haul from Whitaker’s cross.
Whitaker scored her second from a Pinkney pass and then secured her hat-trick on 81 minutes.
Nicholls then got her second and Michelle Maull-Hutfield rounded off the scoring from range.
Spits entertain reigning champions Chippenham next time out.
