Saints Women stick 11 past Helston in FA Cup

RACHEL Panting led the way as Saints Women thumped Helston Athletic 11-0 to march on in the FA Cup.

Panting bagged four goals in just half an hour, with Shannon Sievwright, Ella Pusey and Alisha Ware each bagging braces.

Georgie Freeland was also on target for Marieanne Spacey-Cale’s side.

It took Saints 14 minutes to break the deadlock in Cornwall, through captain Sievwright.

In-form Pusey made it 2-0 midway through the first half, before Freeland also made her mark.

Leading 3-0 at the break, the visitors ran riot in the second half to ensure their spot in the third qualifying round of the competition.

Substitute Panting scored her first of the afternoon on the hour mark, quickly adding a second.

Ware and Pusey each netted before Panting secured her treble.

And there was still time to reach double figures through Ware, and then Panting. Sievwright, who started the scoring, also ended it at the death.

Saints return to league action next week, with a visit to Maidenhead United in the National League South West.
