Budleigh Salterton ladies recorded an emphatic 9-0 win when they travelled to Plymouth to meet Keyham Kolts in a Westward Developments Devon Women’s League Division One meeting, writes SpursTom.

The Robinettes, playing for the first time since February, clearly enjoyed getting back into action.

They made a slow start, but soon found their feet and the opening goal arrived in the 14th minute when leading striker Amy Salter struck.

Eight minutes later Salter scored again and the third and final goal of the first half came just before the break when a fine piece of skill by Katy Harkness took her past a defender before comprehensively beating the keeper. The second period had hardly began when Jen Cordwell scored to make it four and 10 minutes later Salter completed her hat-trick.

The hosts went close on numerous occasions before a wonder strike by Hannah Dawe left the keeper clutching air as the ball flew into the top right corner of the net.

Amy Brown put Budleigh in seventh heaven, before a second from Dawe made it 8-0.

In the closing stages Kathryn Parsley completed the scoring.

All 15 members of the Robinettes playing squad contributed in the triumph.

As for Keyham Kolts, they kept battling away but could make no headway against a much stronger side in a match which could have ended like a cricket score, but for the woodwork, missed chances and the performance of the home goalkeeper.

Next Sunday (April 15) there is a fixture change for the Robinettes, who will now entertain Axminster ladies.
