Exe 7, Bristol University 1

Bristol began the game brightly, but it was Exe who opened the scoring when a short corner found its way to Clare Whitworth who tucked the ball away.

The lead was doubled after some slick passing and fleet-footed movement prior to Laura Allen netting.

Two became three with some superb inter-play ending with Kirsty Crocker getting the assist for a Rebecca Fagg goal.

There was more to come from an impressive Exe and when a short corner was won by Molly Coleman, Helen Bray tucked away her first goal of the season!

The visitors kept plugging away and were rewarded for their endeavour with the final goal of the half, sending Exe into the break 4-1 to the good.

In the second half the University side changed formation and began to stretch the play. This forced the Exe defence into additional work.

It was not until 20 minutes after the re-start that the next goal arrived, but within two minutes 5-1 became 6-1 with Kelly Luscombe the scorer.

Exe had the final say with their seventh goal to wrap up a convincing triumph.
