Ladies Hit Double Figures

Blues ease their way into last four of Hampshire Cup

Pompey Ladies

Pompey Ladies hit double figures as they continued their defence of the Hampshire Cup with a 10-0 rout of Warsash.

Sammy Quayle hit a hat-trick, while there were a total of six different players on target in the quarter-final triumph at New Road

Jay Sadler named a strong side and handed a first start to Hannah Geer following her switch from Southampton.

Pompey piled on the pressure right from the start and soon broke the deadlock when Shannon Sievwright teed-up Quayle to add to her growing goal tally.

The hosts barely had time to kick-off before the advantage was doubled, as Amelia Southgate headed in Carla Perkins’ cross at the far post.

A third arrived moments later, with Katie James doing well to control Daisy McLachlans’ pass before finding the bottom corner.

James soon had her second of the afternoon after being unselfishly given the ball by Quayle, while Rachel Panting then slotted in another.

Quayle found space in the box to slot home a sixth for the Blues and there was still time for one more before the break, with McLachlan nodding in Perkins’ cross to open her account for the club.

An offside flag denied Quayle early in the second half, although it was to prove a brief respite for Warsash.

Eilidh Currie and Quayle combined well to leave Panting one-on-one with the keeper and she made no mistake.

Substitute Emma-Jane May then bagged her first Pompey goal on 81 minutes after converting Quayle’s cut-back.

And it was Quayle who met an inch-perfect delivery from Lauren Peck to complete the scoring in stoppage-time.

"The girls seemed to enjoy themselves and played with smiles on their faces."

Blues boss Jay Sadler told the club’s official YouTube channel: “I’m really happy with the performance. We got on the ball and played our football.

“The girls seemed to enjoy themselves and played with smiles on their faces. When all that work comes to fruition on the pitch, it’s really pleasing.

“We’ve won this cup a number of times in the past and are happy to be in the next round because we know how important that is for the team.”

Pompey have been drawn away to Southampton Saints in the semi-finals, with the tie taking place on Sunday, February 18.
