After a couple of disappointing defeats, Asfordby hit back with a goalfest against a team propping up the league.

Asfordby went 3-0 up early on, but allowed a battling Beaumont to pull two goals back before getting into their stride.

The second half was a different story with goals coming thick and fast through some great flowing football.

Forwards Sarah Brown and Jess Nightingale were on top form, with Brown scoring five and Nightingale six, but their all-round play was excellent, with Beaumont unable to cope with Brown’s pace and Nightingale’s determination.

Other stand-out performances came from Mandy Reader, who was strong and committed at the back, and Alisha De’ath-Eccles who had an excellent second half playing out wide.

Also on the scoresheet were Hannah Green, Sarah Milner, Kat Plimmer and Tara Brookes who capped a fine second half performance with a great finish following a fantastic move.

But it was an outstanding team performance which moves Asfordby up to third place in the table.

Amateurs: E. Roberts, A. Roberts, K. Hutton, C. Marlow, M. Reader, D. Sharpe, S. Anderson, S. Brown, H. Green, A. De’ath-Eccles, S. Milner, J. Nightingale, T. Brookes, K. Plimmer, H. Millin.
