Toni sets her sights high

Toni sets her sights high - 1 Sep 2006 - Women's Football NewsToni Hemmings heaped praise on her team mates after scoring a hat-trick in Bristol City's 7-0 win over AFC Wimbledon.
The 19-year-old striker bagged her first senior treble but was prepared to take a wider view of the game. "It was a really good game and the team played well," Toni told Women's Soccer Scene. "Obviously, getting a hat-trick is a bonus for me personally, but it was a great team effort and we really showed what we are made of. I could possibly have had five goals, Angie (Tinson) also had a few more chances and the midfield were having a go at goal as well."
When asked which of the three goals she liked the most, Toni gave a typical striker's reply. "I don't know, they were all a bit scrappy really," she laughs. "A bit hit-and-hope but when you score a hat-trick, you don't decide which is best!"
The win takes City to the top of the fledgling Southern Division table with two victories from their opening two games, in contrasting fashion. "Last week (at West Ham) we had to fight for the game," admits Toni. "I thought West Ham played really well and they were quite strong. Today we opened Wimbledon up and could have scored a lot more.
"Last season, our home form wasn't that great, but this time we have started well here and hopefully we can carry that on for at least the first couple of months. We had a good end to the season but the start is where we lacked."
This week, City face a tough trip to play Portsmouth, who are expected to be firmly among the challengers in the division. Despite the early stage of the season, Toni is quick to point out that is likely to be a crucial game. "Last year we played Portsmouth here and drew 3-3," she recalls. "I thought, personally, we could have won that game and if we had, it would have meant different circumstances at the end of the season where we would have been promoted, so I think we really need to push to win this match. Every game counts in the end and Portsmouth are a very good side, so we have got to win it."
Toni spent much of last season in the leading goalscorer charts in the Southern Division and she is aiming to stay there in the new campaign, setting an ambitious target. "I want to get into the 20s," she says. "Last season, I played in the first few games and scored eight goals. I was out for the last part of the season so, if I stay in the side this time, I want to get there. Every striker sets themselves targets - you've got to, otherwise you don't know what to aim for."
