 Women's Football News 18 Aug 2008
Hannah's hat-trick gives Leicester flying start - 18 Aug 2008 - Women's Football NewsLeicester City have made a spectacular entrance to the Premier League, scoring six without reply against Rotherham Utd in their opening Northern Division match.
Hannah Smith and Louise Ward netted early goals before Louise Fellows and Smith added further strikes before the half hour. Smith completed her hat-trick midway through the second half and captain Remi Allen rounded off the scoring with four minutes remaining.
It was not such a good start for Reading FC Women however as they went down 3-0 at home to Sunderland. Steph Bannon opened the scoring for the Black Cats with debutant Kelly McDougall adding the second before the interval. Sophie Williams rounded off the victory with the third goal late on.
The other newcomers to the division, Curzon Ashton, also opened with a defeat, 4-2 away to Aston Villa. Georgina Stebbings gave Curzon the lead before Natalie Gibson and Erin Vaughan sent Villa ahead at the break. Two late strikes from Carly Davies sealed the points for Villa despite Nicky McLeod netting in reply.
There was another late winner at Manchester City where the home side came from behind to edge out Sheffield Wednesday 3-2. City took the lead early in the first half with Sarah Penney, making her debut in senior football, calmly slotted home. Wednesday levelled through a powerful strike from Rachel Skeemer and Beth Gingell sent them ahead before the interval. City drew level midway through the second half when Penney grabbed her second of the game with a quality finish and the home side took the points in the dying minutes as substitute Ellena Turner scored from close range.
It was also a close battle at Preston North End, where visitors Tranmere Rovers came away with a 3-2 victory. Tranmere took the lead midway through the first half through Debbie Cartmel with Laura Walker equalising two minutes later. Vicky Abbott sent Tranmere ahead before the break and Gemma Drury added a decisive third, despite Mel Martin netting a late consolation for Preston.
The other scheduled game between Newcastle Utd and OOH Lincoln was a victim of the weather, being postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
