Seventh heaven yet again for Women
AFC Bournemouth Women recorded yet another impressive victory, beating Warsash Wasps 7-0 away from home.
Both Aimee-Rose Collier and Hannah Bennett netted braces, while Rosie Eden, Sian Tilly and Meg Vella also got on the scoresheet.
The Cherries opened their account within the first 20 minutes after Eden was fouled in the area and the referee pointed to the spot.
Bennett stepped up for her first of the afternoon, hammering the spot kick straight down the middle to give her side the lead.
Despite plenty of pressure, the Women couldn’t find another breakthrough before half time and went into the break a goal up.
As the second period got underway, the Cherries continued to dominate the ball, Eden having a great chance but hitting the post with her effort.
However, it didn’t take long for the striker to find the net, converting the rebound from Maisy Smith’s shot after Rebecca Miles had pulled it back.
With the side firing on all cylinders, Collier then added a third, before Tilly powered home a header from the near post for a fourth.
Continuing the build momentum, Vella then saw her strike hit the post, before converting herself moments later, while Bennett netted her second of the afternoon in the final ten minutes.
With the clock ticking down, there was still time for Collier to score arguably the goal of the afternoon.
Vella’s ball in was cleared as far as the edge of the box, with the youngster first to it and firing a shot into the top corner.
Following the game, a thrilled Steve Davies reflected with afcb.co.uk.
“The second half performance was one of the best this season,” he said.
“I'm really pleased with our current run of form."
AFC Bournemouth Women maintain their position at the top of the Southern Region Women’s Premier League, having now scored 33 goals in their last four matches.
