ST BREWARD LADIES 0-18 (eighteen) MOUSEHOLE WOMEN
CORNWALL WOMEN’S LEAGUE, sponsored by Pirate FM
SUNDAY 11TH FEBRUARY 2018, AT BRAKE PARK
HUGE WIN MAKES IT TEN OUT OF TEN FOR TABLE-TOPPING MOUSEHOLE WOMEN
Mousehole Women surged six points ahead at the top of the Cornwall Women’s League, and recorded their tenth consecutive win since the start of the season, with a bagful of goals to provide a major boost to their goal difference.
On a bitterly cold afternoon, this was the only game in the League to survive the wet weather, with both teams fielding depleted squads and the hosts particularly badly affected by unavailable players.
For Mousehole, four different players – Emma Hurworth, Lucy Brown, Sophie Wilson and Stacey George – took turns in goal in the absence of tonsillitis-stricken Lyndsey Mayers, and Cas Wilson made her debut.
It was 7-0 at half-time with goals from Sophie Wilson (2), Megan Edwards, Claire Hitchens Todd, Scarlett Clouter (2) and Jo Barker.
Early in the second half, Scarlett Clouter got her hat-trick and Claire Hitchens Todd scored her second to make it 9-0. The Seagulls amassed another eight goals inside the last 20 minutes through Sophie Wilson (her hat-trick), Jo Barker, Scarlett Clouter, Jo Barker again for her hat-trick, Sophie Wilson with a ‘trade mark screamer’ from 30 yards, Emma Hurworth, two from Flo Davies – one an accidental deflection off her back from a Sophie Wilson drive, the second a powerful shot of her own, and finally Sophie Wilson rounding off the afternoon’s work.
The win maintains Mousehole Women’s 100% record and puts them on 30 points with a goal difference of +70. In second place are last season’s champions St Agnes on 24 points with 8 wins from 9 games and a goal difference of +82. Third are Helston Ladies with 19 points from 10 games. Mousehole have yet to play St Agnes at home or away, so the six points on offer could go some way to deciding the destination of this season’s championship.
Mousehole’s next fixture is this Sunday (18th) at home against Charlestown, kick off 2:30, venue to be decided later in the week.
