Hockey: Perfect 10 for Hampstead & Westminster women
- Credit: Archant
Hampstead & Westminster’s women began the second half of the season with an impressive 4-0 win over Bedford, their 10th in a row in Conference East.
Having been made to work hard for a 1-0 victory in their earlier clash this season, Hampstead kept the pace high early on and created many first-half chances, with a pair of penalty strokes from Joyce Esser putting them 2-0 up at the break.
Esser then produced a superb run from halfway and reverse stick strike from the top of the D to complete her hat-trick with 20 minutes remaining.
And Lauren Turner converted a hard pass late on to round off the scoring as Hampstead maintained their 100 per cent record.
This Sunday sees them welcome defending champions Wimbledon, who are currently in third place, to Maida Vale at 12.15pm.
