A CLINICAL performance by the City of Ely Ladies team saw them score a comprehensive 9-0 win over Spalding at the weekend.

Hannah Scotney's side were in a determined mood following last week's narrow loss at Cambridge Nomads, and the Lincolnshire side bore the brunt of their ire as they put on a ruthless display of swift attacking hockey.

The breakthrough for Ely took just three minutes, as, following a driving run into the D, Chanre Bond eluded a series of defenders to fire home.

Bond doubled her tally for the afternoon just five minutes later, and, buoyed by their early breakthroughs, Ely continued to press forward and Bond added two more to her tally before half-time.

Keen to quash any hopes of a second-half fight back, Ely emerged after the whistle with renewed vigour and soon had the visitors on the back foot with some sweeping attacking play.

Krista Hopkinson tapped in to make it 5-0 early on and attacker Gemma Voutt made it six, minutes later.
