Moneyfields summit SRWFL Premier
Moneyfields maintained their 100% record to move to the top of the SRWFL Premier with a game in hand over second-placed AFC Bournemouth CST.
Sheree Bell-Jack struck twice in the opening twenty-five minutes for Moneyfields, before Emma Pickering pegged one back for the home side ten minutes later.
Nicole Matthews added two more before half-time to give the visitors a comfortable 1-4 lead heading into the break.
Warsash Wasps reduced the deficit to two 15 minutes after the restart, Hannah Chaffey registering her third goal of the season.
However, Moneyfields hit back with two quickfire goals from Paige Seeley and Bell-Jack, her third of the afternoon, to round off a comfortable 2-6 win.
The result sees Moneyfields move to the top of the league, with their 100% record intact, and pursuit of FAWNL football going from strength to strength. Wasps remain at the foot of the table.
Kestrels and Yella Women share spoils
Rosie Page-Smith helped the Kestrels come from behind to salvage a point against Ascot United.
Ascot broke the deadlock in the 28th minute when Hannah Evans found the back of Nicole Haines’ net, from the edge of the area, to give the visitors the lead.
Woodley’s top scorer, Rosie Page-Smith, worked space and beat the keeper at her near post to restore parity and earn the Kestrels a point.
The result sees Ascot take four points of a possible six against Woodley across two league games and means both teams remain in exactly the same positions as they started the day, with Woodley and Ascot in seventh and eighth respectively.
Flyers and Newbury battle to draw
*more details to be added when available*
The result sees Newbury move above Wycombe into fifth place, while Winchester City Flyers remain ninth. However, Flyers have only played six games this season – seven fewer than eighth-placed Ascot – so have plenty of opportunities to make up ground on their nearest rivals.
