MAGPIES came rapidly out of the blocks, pressuring the Evergreens' defence, and quickly went a goal up through Rachel Clifford. Clifford got her second soon after, a good ball through the middle from captain Tracy Reeve finding her by the near post to tap in. Beth Alexander scored the home side's third, before Clifford added the fourth.

You may also want to watch:

Magpies dominated possession, playing quality flowing hockey, with Tracy Reeve and Treacle Snelling controlling the game from the midfield, supported well by Georgie Bore in her sweeper role. Kay Dennis made it 5-0 midway through the first half, and Clifford got her fourth goal shortly before half time.

More of the same followed in the second half, with the Magpies piling on the pressure, attacking the away side's goal fiercely, looking to increase their impressive tally.

Rachel Clifford capped a brilliant performance with her fifth goal shortly into the half, and Beth Alexander got her second. Liz Cole, Nic Beevor, and Georgie Scoot in the Magpies' defence remained solid, clearing up the loose balls giving the midfield the freedom to support the attacking play, with Laura Tibbenham on the left side making some terrific runs, beating players and supplying the forwards with some brilliant balls into the D and she was unlucky not to get on the score sheet herself. Zoe Cole on the right wing also making some good runs, combining well with Treacle Snelling behind her.

A well worked short corner routine ended with Snelling cracking a shot into the goal for Magpies' ninth. Kay Dennis got her second, and put the home side into double figures, just minutes before the final whistle, pushing the ball past the Evergreens keeper into the far corner. A completely commanding performance from the fourths, with Kristina Erith in the Magpies' goal only touching the ball once!
