Emma hits a double hat-trick

Mendip Ladies crush Ilminster 20-0 in their first Somerset Women’s League match.

WITH both teams new to the Somerset Women’s League, it was a journey into the unknown.

Ilminsters token resistance ended with Amy Uzarowska’s shot from 20 yards for the first goal. Mendip scored regularly throughout the game with a double hat-trick from Emma Maggs.

Mendip’s midfield of Becky Pearson, Charlie Longhorn, Chaz Timmins and Natalee Elmer controlled the game and left the defence largely redundant.

This was a great start for Mendip’s first competitive game, but sterner tests lie ahead.
