LEETON United’s women smashed their opponents out of the park on the weekend.
Taking on Henwood Park at the Mia Sportsground, United were not sure what to expect from the match having not played the side this year.
Henwood Park had forfeited their match to Leeton in round three and this time around the away team was short on numbers.
Leeton United took full advantage of this, scoring a goal in the second and fifth minute of the game.
“Henwood Park defended well with their keeper saving an incredible shot by Ellie Castle in the top corner in the seventh minute, but this wasn't enough,” United coach Mark Powter said.
“In the 27th minute, Catherine Gray took on the keeper again, slotting a ball through her legs to take the score to 3-0.
“A corner in the 38th minute saw a beautiful ball crossed in to the box, which was caught and dropped by the keeper, allowing Courtney Smith to finish it off.
“This was quickly followed up with a goal by Ellie Castle to finish the half 6-0.”
The score didn’t change until the 31st minute of the second half when Gray broke through the defensive line to slot one past the keeper.
Henwood's defence slipped for the next few minutes allowing Charlie Lamont to score an easy goal in the 33rd minute before crossing a ball in to Joni Lucas in the 37th minute to seal the win 9-0. United’s next game is on July 22.
