Doster at the double as Town continue their good run

Ladies faced Brereton Town having come off a 13-0 win last weekend.

It only took three minutes for Town to open the scoring. Young broke through the midfield, who played Doster and Doster's through ball found Budd for her to slot into the bottom corner.

Millie Young was in action again in the fifth minute, as she played a through ball down the centre for this time Doster to slot home.

With Town pushing for a third, Woodhouse found space down the left wing and her cross was drilled across the box which an outstretched Doster couldn't get onto.

Town got their third goal in a typical Nicola Durnall style. Durnall, won the ball back in the oppositions half and her 25 yard shot flew over the keeper into the roof of the net.

Durnall was in action again, as her free kick was saved by the keeper and the rebound fell to Young who finished well for Town's fourth.

Doster was soon on the score sheet again, as a long range shot by Sewell was parried out by the keeper and Doster slotted home for Town's fifth.

Town continued to push and looked comfortable in possession with chances falling to Sewell and Croft who couldn't convert their chances.

Brereton did have a good chance, when in the 80th minute, Brereton striker was released down the centre and for Nicholson to make a last ditch tackle.

Captain Charl Sewell reacted to the game 'It wasn’t our best performance out there today, but we got the 3 points and kept a clean sheet which was our aim, now on to next weekends game against Bilbrook'.

Manager Alex Owens wasn't best pleased with Town's performance.  'It was a poor performance and we didn't get out of first gear. The first half we did play well but their was no push in the second. It was disappointing that we dropped our tempo and gave Brereton chances to grab a goal or too'.
