Chard Ladies 0
ON the back of two clean sheet wins, Weston were positive from the off against Chard.

The second half got underway with some promising attacking play from Chard, but these efforts were thwarted by the defence of Westgate, Gordon, Mawford and Westcott.
Captain Crandon stepped up with a punishing shot which led to another goal for Weston. Clarke added two more to the tally and Bellinger added one more. Westcott was unlucky not to score when her shot hit the post.
Kingscott’s goal was well placed in the corner and Tuxford rounded off the scoring with a fantastic shot.
