A five-goal blitz from Verity Snow helped Fulham Foundation overcome a 1-4 half time deficit at AFC Wimbledon.
In an action packed game, Wimbledon's first at Kingsmeadow for around seven years, Rebecca Sargent scored from close range after three minutes, before Caz Bisson latched onto a through ball to make it two just four minutes later. Snow then puled a goal back before the quarter hour mark to set the tone for an amazing game. Caz Bisson completed her hat-trick, first from a lobbed free kick and then breaking clear on goal and blasting into the roof of the net.
Fulham made some changes at half time and they started to pass the ball better and create chances. Lizzie Laws blasted a free kick just wide, and Kirsty Percival headed past the post, before Bisson nearly added her fourth but shot too close to Fulham keeper Lauren Allen.
With just twenty minutes remaining, Snow scored four in a thirteen minute spell: after a strong run and cross by Gemma Frasier down the right bundling the ball home; picking up a good pass and finishing coolly; an immaculate lob from outside the area to bring the match all square; and finally a close range header to edge Fulham in front.
Gemma Frasier then rounded keeper Tylee to finish, before sub Helen Ogle added a lob of her own from the left to give Fulham six goals in just 18 minutes.
