Northampton Town Women Development beat Biggleswade United 7-1 in a pre-season friendly on Sunday.
The Cobblers dominated possession in a strong and commanding performance.
Kitty Crouch opened the scoring with a left-footed strike from the edge of the area.
Ellie Barker doubled the lead after some free-flowing build-up play, winning a challenge with the ‘keeper and ensuring the ball rolled over the line.
Biggleswade United halved the deficit, but Barker restored the two-goal advantage with her second goal when she followed-up after the ‘keeper parried a shot.
Barker completed her hat-trick after linking-up with Georgia Tear, and added her fourth as she turned Eva Ladyman’s square ball home. She has now scored seven goals in three pre-season fixtures.
Ruby Oxley slotted across goal and into the bottom corner to make it six with her first goal for the Development team, and another first-time Devs scorer, Ilanna Stelfox, rounded-off the scoring when she broke into the area and finished one-on-one.
