FA Women's Cup News - Gulls bring down Spitfires - 7 Sep 2017 - Women's Football NewsEastleigh 0 Torquay Utd 3
Torquay United, of the South West League Premier Division, moved into the Second Qualifying round of the SSE Women's FA Cup after a comprehensive 6-0 win at Eastleigh's Silverlake Stadium.
The visitors were ahead with a contender for the quickest goal in this year's competition and dominated throughout, being six goals to the good just after the hour, boosted by four from Stephanie Beck. Eastleigh, newly promoted from the Hampshire County League, fought hard to keep their goal intact in the last half hour and nearly scored on a couple of occasions but Torquay were impressive in every aspect and worthy winners.
A corner from the first attack led to Torquay's opener, Sian Chapman driving home a loose ball from six yards with barely a minute gone. The lead was doubled on 21 minutes when a free kick on the left was headed home by Daisy Self. Home goalkeeper Lauren Medhurst made a string of fine saves to prevent further damage, blocking a Sarah Smith effort before making a double save to deny Georgia Mann at close range then holding the follow up shot from Chapman.
Nicky Beeton made a goal saving tackle for Eastleigh on the half hour and it seemed that the hosts would reach the break without further damage until Stephanie Beck drove home a superb 25-yard third off the far post on 45 minutes.
Amy Wakefield forced the first difficult save for United keeper Beth Marshall on 50 minutes but at the other end, Beck notched a four minute hat-trick around the hour mark. First, she latched on to a loose ball to net from close range, then added another long range finish before outpacing the defence a minute later for her fourth and Torquay's sixth as things looked bleak for the home team.
Eastleigh rallied well, defending deep and occasionally getting within range of Torquay's goal. Skipper Leah Shave had the best attempts on goal, forcing Marshall to tip over a free kick and going close with another effort from distance but a consolation goal eluded them.
The use of the Silverlake Stadium, with every effort made to offer the impressive facilities for a good sized crowd on a damp afternoon made the event a success, even if things went against the hosts on the pitch against higher ranked and highly motivated opponents.
