BRANDON Lasses U14 needed a point to become Suffolk Girls' League champions and put in a terrific team performance to beat high-flying visitors Witnesham Wasps 7-0.

Charlotte Howard gave the home side a 12th minute lead after some good build-up between her and Francesca Bonnett. Dayna Howard made it two with well-struck drive from the edge of the area after Witnesham failed to clear her corner, and after a terrific run from Paige Kenny, she set up Francesca, who turned her defender to make it three.

Brandon then scored their fourth, again assisted by Paige Kenny, whose shot was parried by the Witnesham keeper, but Francesca was first to react. Half-time score: 4-0.

The visitors started the second half well but the Brandon defence of April Harrild, Ellen Rumsey, Natasha Dawson and Leanne Smith in goal were in superb form to keep another clean sheet and Evie Laddell and Dayna worked well in midfield.

As the half went on, the Lasses looked sharp on the break and Charlotte added her second from a good goal kick from Leanne Smith, and then Charlotte turned provider for Francesca to complete a very good hat-trick. Francesca capped things off with her fourth and a great individual goal.

With only a bare nine available on the day, this was very good, controlled team display and a very well-deserved league title by this small but very committed squad. Well done girls for a superb achievement.

Scorers: Francesca Bonnett (4), Charlotte Howard (2), Dayna Howard.
