Baggies tighten grip on top spot

Albion extended their lead at the top of the FA Women's National League Division One Midlands to nine points after securing a 4-1 victory over The New Saints Ladies.

Goals from Hannah Baines, Laura Davies, Keeley Davies and Jess Davies earned Louis Sowe's side all three points at Boldmere, despite the visitors taking the lead.

The Saints put themselves in the driving seat through Zoe Griffiths who planted the ball past Albion's Scarlett Field in the ninth minute of the match.

But the Baggies high pressure soon paid dividends, as Baines pounced fastest from a Hannah George free-kick to smash the ball home beyond Sarah Parkes in the TNS goal.

The Baggies would eventually go ahead in the second half, with Jess Davies at the centre of Albion's domination.

Laura and Keeley Davies both got their names on the scoresheet for the Baggies, before Jess chipped the 'keeper in the dying minutes to secure the victory on home soil.

ALBION: Field, Jewitt, George, Harper (Johnston 80), Orthodoxou, Baines (Sinclair 80), Murray, K.Davies, James, L.Davies, L.Price (J.Davies 52).
