Albion Women cruise past Middlesbrough

Albion Women won a third consecutive league game as they cruised to an 8-0 victory against Middlesbrough at Walsall Wood.

The Baggies had to play nearly an hour with striker Hattie James in goal after Olivia Walker had to go off injured, but that didn’t hold back Louis Sowe’s side.

It took until after the half-hour mark to break the deadlock, but after Jade Arber’s 34th minute goal, Albion asserted their dominance. Just two minutes later Keeley Davies chipped the visitors’ goalkeeper from 25 yards, with Hannah George netting again moments later.

Arber fired in a fourth just before the break to extend Albion’s advantage. Approaching the hour mark Davies grabbed her second to put the Baggies out of sight.

With just less than 20 minutes to play Arber completed her hat-trick by notching Albion’s sixth. Nicole Nymeon scored her first Baggies goal late on, with Arber also squeezing in a fourth before the whistle.

ALBION: Walker (James 24), Jewitt, George, Orthodoxou (Gallop 70), Elsmore, Baines, Murray, Nymoen, Arber, Davies, Stamps (Davies 58).
