Preston run riot at Leeds
 Women's Football News 28 Oct 2013
 
Only two matches managed to survive the weather throughout the FA Women's Premier League on Sunday and both took place in the Premier League Cup. 
 
Leeds Utd, beaten finalists in each of the last two seasons, have gone out of the competition at the group stage this time around after they crashed to an 11-0 defeat at home to Preston North End.
 
Leeds went into the game needing nothing less than a victory after being beaten by Wolverhampton Wanderers in their opening match but they found themselves a goal behind after four minutes when Becky Grocott broke through to score. Rebecca Foster quickly added a second and Gemma Watson made it three shortly before half time. Jenna Carroll powered home a header from a corner for the fourth and Sophie Jones volleyed Preston further ahead, before Grocott scored her second following another corner.
 
Preston netted their fourth goal in an eleven minute spell when Foster completed her double and Melissa Ball joined her on the scoresheet midway through the second half. Ball added the next goal via a superbly struck free kick and Alison Taberner then scored with a virtual repeat strike from another free kick in almost the same position. Leeds did not give up and tried to grab a consolation but it was Preston who had the final say when Carroll headed in her second goal with three minutes remaining.
 
The other game to go ahead was at Chesham Utd where visitors Gillingham took a huge stride towards qualification from Group One by running out 3-0 winners.
 
Emma Tune put the Gills in front with her second goal in successive weeks and the lead was doubled by Deanna Cooper who finished off a fine team move. The win was wrapped up by Lauren Phillips to keep up Gillingham's excellent start to the season. The result also meant that Gills goalkeeper Faye Baker and her defence have broken a club record for the number of clean sheets kept during a season.
