Northampton Town joint-managers Lou Barry and Josh Oldfield were pleased with their side’s 8-0 win away to Loughborough Students in the East Midlands Women’s Regional Football League Premier Division on Sunday.
Leah Cudone scored a hat-trick, Alex Dicks a brace and Zoe Boote, Rachael Mumford and Chloe Martin a goal each as the Cobblers responded to last week’s draw at Sixfields against the same opponents.
Speaking after the match, Oldfield said: “We’re delighted with the reaction to last week’s performance and result.
“Last week was a wake-up call and we couldn’t have asked for more from the girls today.
“We controlled the game and we’re really happy.”
Barry added: “We’ve scored seven before, but we can never seem to get an eighth so it’s nice that we have.
“There were five different scorers and some fantastic goals today.
“It was one of the best performances from us this season.”
Mumford agreed with the coaches’ comments, saying: “We fought hard from the start and that intensity showed throughout.
“We wanted to bounce back which we did and be resilient which we were.
“It was a dominant performance and one that we can be proud of.”
The Cobblers are level on points with Chesterfield and have two games in hand on the league leaders. They host third-placed Mansfield Town next week.
Barry said: “It’s another big game and these games against the teams that can win the league are important.
“We’ve done well in those types of games so far, but Mansfield will be a tough test.
“We know what to expect, we’re ready and we’re looking forward to it.”
