Draycott Ladies broke many a record in this impressive 22-goal romp against game opposition, who put up strong resistance and kept going throughout.
Playing down the hill in the first half, Draycott got on the front foot early on and scored 14, despite many fines saves by the home keeper.
Issy Milne opened the scoring after five minutes and by the break had got a hat-trick, a feat matched by Lauren Ford, but both were eclipsed by skipper for the day, Eviee Smith who scored five.
Added to this were two goals for Caitlin Skinner and also one from goalie turned midfielder Ashton King.
Draycott were determined to set up a goal for Nicky Mills and she almost got that when the 19th went in, unfortunately off a Hamilton defender despite Mills being the closest attacker.
It didn’t matter too much as goal number 20 saw Mills smashed home an unstoppable drive resulting in the biggest celebration of the day.
Between the break and these goalmouth thrillers were four more goals as Skinner got two more and Eviee Smith also scored twice.
In the last few minutes it was these two strikers who scored goals 21 and 22, to take their personal tallies to five for Skinner and eight for Smith.
As pleasing for the management team was the fact that their impressive back line, despite several scares, of Lesley Smith, Yasmin Sluijmers and Amy Uzarowska kept a clean sheet.
When she came on Hannah Gould was brave and courageous, and put in a solid performance.
On the few times they did get beaten, Mollie Smith, resting her injured leg in goal, showed her versatility and excellence in goal.
