Runaway leaders Beeston notched up another win in the Investec Women’s Conference North, beating the University of Durham 3-0 to remain nine points clear at the top of the table.
Esme Burge opened the scoring with a field goal after seven minutes, and Lauren Burrell doubled their lead three minutes later, again from open play. And Beeston’s third and final goal came on 19 minutes, Nina Apoola finding the net.
A strong defensive performance from bottom of the table Liverpool Sefton wasn’t enough for them to take the points, as Annie Mills’ seventh minute penalty corner goal gave second-placed Brooklands-Poynton the win.
A goal with eight minutes from the end by Rachel Greenwood was enough for Fylde to win 1-0 at fellow strugglers Wakefield, while Ben Rhydding lost out to Timperley 2-0.
And honours were even in the mid-table clash between Sutton Coldfield and Loughborough Students, which ended 2-2.
