Reading FC Women 8 (Watts 25,35, Follis 37, Roche 40,64, Rowe 44, Bragg 67,86) London Bees 0
A dominant triumph over London Bees sent Reading FC Women to the top of FA WSL 2, ahead of Doncaster Rovers Belles who play tomorrow.
Nikki Watts, Lois Roche and substitute Bianca Bragg all scored doubles, with Emma Follis also getting on the scoresheet thanks to a neat finish and Lois Roche striking a sublime 25-yard free kick.
Watts opened the scoring on 29 minutes, tapping in a cross from Follis before the same duo combined to produce a carbon copy of the first goal on 38 minutes. Follis grabbed a goal of her own two minutes later when she lobbed the onrushing Sophie Harris and rolled the ball into the empty net from 18 yards.
Roche made it four with a 25-yard free kick that went in off the underside of the bar. On the stroke of half time, Rowe scored with a cheeky backheeled finish following yet more good work from Follis on the right.
Nia Jones got the first goal of the second half, nipping in to get a slight touch on Roche's corner in the 65th minute. Bragg scored the seventh two minutes later, following good work on the right by fellow substitute Lauren Bruton, before converting another cross from Bruton as the final whistle approached.
Victory extended the Royals' unbeaten streak in the league to nine games and moved them above title rivals Doncaster Rovers Belles in FA Women's Super League with BT Sport 2.
