Women top the league with five from five

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth


AFC Bournemouth Women made it five league wins from five, after beating Eastleigh 5-0 on the weekend.

Goals from Terri Harvey, Emma Davis and Rosie Eden, alongside a brace from Chloe Tape, ensured that the Cherries continued their unbeaten start to the season in the Southern Region Women’s Football League.

The hosts had the first chance of the game with a good shot from range, but AFC Bournemouth were soon on the front foot.

Steve Davies’ side were ahead on 13 minutes after some early attacking, as Tape’s shot found the corner following a slight deflection.

The Cherries doubled their lead just 14 minutes later through Harvey. The striker took advantage of a spilled ball by the otherwise brilliant Lauren Medhurst in goal for Eastleigh to turn and net for 2-0.

Moments later, Eden had a great chance to make it three, as she turned the defender and fired wide from the edge of the box.

Just prior to the break, Eastleigh had a chance to get back into the game, with Samantha Hide forcing Cherries ‘keeper Kate Guthrie into an excellent save after a powerful shot from the edge of the box.

Following the interval, AFC Bournemouth started as they left off, winning a corner almost immediately.

From the resulting set-piece, the ball fell to Eden who saw her initial shot saved, before Tape poked home the rebound to make it 3-0.

The Cherries continued to press forward, as Davis hit the bar following another shot from Tape, before getting a reward for her efforts with a little under ten minutes to go.

A well worked move saw Tape play it in for Eden, who rounded Medhurst and put it on a plate for Davies, slotting into the bottom right-hand corner.

And there was still time for the Cherries to grab a fifth, as Eden timed her run perfectly to latch onto Tape’s pass for a first time finish to put the game to bed.

Following the game, AFC Bournemouth Women's manager Davies spoke of his delight at the performance.

“I thought we were particularly good in the second half,” he said.

“We upped our intensity and the quality of passing and that showed in the scoreline.”

Next up for the ladies is a trip to Winchester City Flyers on Sunday, as they aim to continue their unbeaten league run.
