Brighouse Town continued their bright start to the season with an empthatic 4-1 win against Middlesbrough.
The first half saw Town miss two guilt edge chances when one v one with Boro keeper Rosie Todd who was in fine form all afternoon. Danielle Whitham had a header cleared off the line as Brighouse started really strongly but couldn’t find a way through.
The second have saw the introduction of Amy Woodruff and the game sprang in to life. It took the forward four minutes to open the scoring capitalising on a mistake to finish off the post.
Middlesbrough where then reduced to 10 players for a push off the ball, but this didn’t faze them who seemed to draw strength from adversity and began to fight back. The North-Eastern side were rewarded when a penalty was dispatched by Laura Robson.
Middlesbrough continued to push but it was Town who took the lead, Woodruff again broke free and smashed a shot in to the top corner. She completed her hat-trick with another finish off the post before Impetus sponsored Leah Embley made it four from all of 40 yards as she fired in to the unmarked goal. Another excellent result for Town who now sit on seven points from four games. Player of the match was captain Annabelle Cass who was immense throughout.
