Excellent start for Suffolk
 Women's Football News 5 Oct 2007
Suffolk started their defence of the East Anglian Championship with a comprehensive win against a Hertfordshire team which included players from Chelsea and Watford. 
Suffolk were two goals to the good within four minutes, both goals were scored by Helen Bass whose pace, control and strength took her through the centre of the defence and onto accurate passes from team mates. Bass was denied a hat-trick a few minutes later when clean through, she was pulled down just outside the penalty box. More misery for Herts after fifteen minutes when they lost Noonan, carried off on a stretcher with a badly twisted knee. After this long delay, the match swung Herts' way as they wrested the initiative from their opponents, who had lost all momentum. During a ten minute period in the middle of the half, Herts could have actually taken the lead, as Rutherford (twice) and Adams went close with long range shots which Faye Lunn in the Suffolk goal did well to keep out.
However, in the middle of this period, Suffolk engineered a quick break and Bass was on hand to claim her hat-trick as she yet again lost her marker to slot home from 12 yards. After half an hour, the Suffolk team had managed to regain some of the early momentum and scored a fourth, once again Bass was the scorer as this time Suffolk worked the ball down the right and another slide rule pass found Bass who squeezed between two defenders and steered the ball past Carr in the Herts goal.
The second half was almost completely dominated by the home team, the Herts players finding it difficult to hold onto the ball and created very few chances. Bass scored again in the 55th minute after exchanging passes with Hannah Gordon and five minutes later, it was six as she turned a defender on the edge of the area, cut in and her angled drive found the corner of the net. During the next 15 minutes, home team manager, Mark Lawrence used 3 substitutes and changed the shape of the team &emdash; thankfully for Herts the last player to be substituted was Bass. She left the field, tired and happy, to chants of 'super nine' from the crowd.
With eight minutes left, Suffolk completed the scoring when Justine Peacock jinked her way past defenders into the box, only to be crowded out. The ball broke to Amy Warnes whose rising drive from 25 yards found the roof of the net, with Carr rooted to the spot.
A wonderful display, not only by Helen Bass, but by her team mates, who provided her with a supply of accurate passes and the chances to score six goals in an hour. It looks good for the rest of the season for this Suffolk team, who now travel to Bedfordshire for their next fixture.
