Abrehart Hits Hat-Trick as Tractor Girls Extend Lead at Top of Table
Sunday, 23rd Feb 2020 17:45
Amy-Leigh Abrehart hit a hat-trick as Ipswich Town Women thrashed Stevenage 7-0 at the Goldstar Ground, Felixstowe to increase their lead at the top of FAWNL Division One South East to four points. Eloise King scored twice and Lindsey Cooper and Molly Sutherland once each.
It took only 11 minutes for King to put the Blues in front, then six minutes later Abrehart slammed in a rebound off the underside of the bar to make it 2-0 at half-time.
Midfielder Abrehart netted her second and Town’s third on the hour mark, then Cooper made it 4-0 two minutes later.
Sub Sutherland added the fifth on 71 with her first senior goal, before King made it 6-0 with her second of the game in the 84th minute.
King was denied her hat-trick when she hit the bar in the final minute, but in injury time Abrehart headed her third of the game from close range to complete the scoring.
With second-placed AFC Wimbledon not in action this weekend, the Tractor Girls are now four points clear at the top of the table.
Town: Runnacles, Pannifer, Hubbard, Egan, Crump (c), Biggs (Thomas 67), King, Cooper, Wakefield (Sutherland 59), Abrehart, Peskett (Barratt 72). Unused: Dunn, Rossiter.

Two Directions by bbg
Fans, media and pundits always seem to target the manager, even Bobby Robson was targeted in his time. However, he was rightly allowed four of five mediocre seasons before starting to make real progress.
They Shoot Horses, Don't They? by Theipswich
Given the circumstances in which we supporters find ourselves at our lowest point in 64 years and with a level of communication befitting Lord Lucan, I have penned an open letter to our president Marcus Evans, as I am certain I would not have the courtesy of a reply if I were to write to the club:
