For Castletown, occupying second position in the Isle of Man League before this fixture and having home advantage in this southern derby, you would have thought they would have been ready for their match with Rushen Utd.
Sadly, they weren't - they have never beaten Rushen in a competitive game and after this performance, this record was still maintained. Restricted to a few half chances, Rushen dominated this match from start of finish, the only thing that was kind to Castletown was the woodwork, the visitors hitting it no less on six occasions.
With Rushen moving the ball intelligently and Siobhan Lockwood bossing the midfield, it only took five minutes for the hosts' defence to be breached. Gawne's corner was met by Biggerstaff who powerfully headed home.
With the visitors spurning a number of chances, they had to wait until the half hour mark to find the net again. Turning defence into attack, Natalie Swales' pass found Georgeson, whose precise pass picked out Gawne who nipped ahead of the defence and guided her shot past Coulthurst. Just before half time they made it 3-0 as Georgeson charged down the right before feeding Gawne, who laid it off for Biggerstaff to curl her effort into the back of the net.
Rushen clocked up their fourth when Biggersaff's shot rebounded off the post for Georgeson to slide in the rebound and Biggerstaff herself was involved to make it 5-0, her dinked pass picked out Siobhan Lockwood to find the net.
Rushen Utd played out the remainder of the second half with football reminiscent of Holland's Total Football in the 1970s, with striker Gawne and defender MacDonald swapping positions. A Coulthurst goal kick found Caitlin Qualtrough and Georgeson seized possession before lobbing the ball into the back of the net for the sixth and she completed her hat-trick with another fine, chipped effort after being a recipient from a pass from midfield.
Gymnasium clocked up their second win of the season with an 8-0 win over Ramsey. Kim Carney and Angela Guest both scored after connecting onto Dawn Quinn's crosses. Elaine Wiseman netted after the break with Quinn bagging their fourth and Carney making it 5-0 with a fine solo effort. Emily Winterton scored Gymnasium's sixth with Quinn adding two more to complete her hat-trick.
Peel clocked up their biggest win of the campaign with a 9-0 success over Michael Utd. Leading 5-0 at half time, Claudia Konig (3), Alcivarne McGregor (3), Bernadette Dunn, Vanessa Roberts and Ali Carroon were on target for the westerners.
Douglas Royal maintained top berth and a 100% record with a 13-1 win over Laxey. Kym Hicklin headed home after five minutes with Donna Shimmin making it 2-0. Vicky Worthington scored from close range for their third and Karen Faragher lobbed home number four. Shimmin poked home the next before Worthington got her brace when her shot was parried into the net. Shimmin intercepted a goal kick to make it 7-0, Laxey then pulling a goal back when Kerry Lockwood's 30-yard free kick flew into the top left hand corner. Kerri Williams got her name on the scoresheet after the interval, meeting Shimmin's cross with Sarah Breen heading home their ninth. Orna Lynch lobbed the keeper for double figures and Bekki Cole latched onto Hicklin's quick free kick before Breen completed her brace courtesy of Faragher's curling cross and Lynch finished off the scoring.
Corinthians still remain unbeaten following a 7-1 win over Colby. Jade Burden opened their scoring for the Whites but Colby equalised with a chipped effort from Alice Leadbeater. Anna Dillon put in a player of the match performance and her side was awarded a penalty when she was tripped. Burden's spot kick had to be retaken following encroachment, the second attempt hitting the post. However, Lauren Christian restored Corinthians' lead following Dillon's cut back and Sarah O'Reilly fired home a long range effort for their third. Dillon was provider again after the break, her cross was headed home by Steph Hall with Sarah Kerford steering home their fifth. Burden fired home her sixth with a low drive and she completed her hat-trick just before full-time.
