Albion Women 0 Stoke City Ladies 5

Albion were beaten 5-0 at home to Stoke City Ladies in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division on Sunday.

A double from Hannah Keryakoplis along with goals from Ashleigh Hayes, Louise Roberts and substitute Tash Tezgel were enough to see the Baggies suffer a second home defeat of the season. 

Hayes put the vistors ahead in the 11th minute after finding space to fire home from an angle, before Roberts' low drive made it 2-0 to the Potters shortly before the break.

Albion came within a whisker of reducing the deficit right on the stroke of half-time, but Gina Burton headed Antonia Smith's right-wing corner against the crossbar.

Yet Louis Sowe's side fell further behind five minutes after the interval when Keryakoplis stabbed home from close-range before adding a second in the 63rd minute.

Both Harriet James and new signing Justine Buckmire came close to scoring for Albion, but it was Tezgel who had the final say to wrap up the points for Stoke with just over twenty-minutes remaining.

ALBION: McElroy, H.Price, Kenny-Levick, Hull (c), Green (Dale 46), Butcher, Burton, Smith (Buckmire 67), James, L.Price, Moore (Bevan 72). 

Unused Subs: Hutchinson, Reynolds.
