The Terriers started the game fast and they wasted no time getting in front, just 10 minutes into the game the deadlock was broken with a goal from Lois Mattock. Falone Sumaili beat the offside trap and then the city ‘keeper, before crossing to Mattock who tapped the ball into an open net to make it 1-0.

On the 30th minute, Sumaili got her second assist of the evening as she passed the ball to Macy Ellis whose powerful shot hit the bar and went in. An unstoppable strike and a brilliant start for Town. 

Then just five minutes later after already getting two assists, Sumaili was on the scoresheet as well. Great play from Leoni Price ran into space and her shot was magnificently saved, but the rebound fell to Sumaili who scored to make it 3-0.

Town then got another goal this time it came from Sian Gibrill-Keating. After a pass from Mattock, Gibrill-Keating’s shot was fired into the back off the net. After a brilliant 45 minutes from Town, they went into the break 4-0 up, continuing their brilliant league form.

Town started the second half as they ended the first and in the 48th minute Macy Ellis got her second of the match. The ball was crossed into the box and Ellis was first to react to make it 5-0 to the Terriers.

In the 60th minute Town made it 6-0 with a goal from substitute Laura. After a great cross from Mattock, Laura got her first goal of the match and Town’s sixth. City managed to get a goal back in the 64th minute.

To crown off a good performance Macy Ellis got her hat-trick with her final touch of the game. Her shot flew through the city goalkeepers’ legs and into the back of the net. 

Minutes later the full-time whistle went. It was another goal-filled result from Town who haven’t let their standards drop all season and stay unbeaten in the league.

At full-time manager Alan Eastwood wasn’t fully impressed with the performance but happy with the seven goals: “If were not playing well and we’ve scored seven goals that’s a massive positive.

“We want to get to the end of the season unbeaten now and we’ve gone through the motions today, but we really need to pick this up for the last game of the season now.”

Town are now just one game away from finishing the season unbeaten which would be an unbelievable achievement and would cap off a fantastic season. 

Their final game of the season is against Stockport County at the Stafflex Arena on Sunday. Supporters are welcome to come and see the final game of the season and give the girls a great send off.
