Cheshunt came into the match hoping to increase on their unbeaten start to the season, and after 12 minutes leading scorer Fran Gamble scored from a well taken free kick to make it 1-0 to Cheshunt. Cheshunt continue to dominate the match and five minutes later Fran scored again to double the lead. Tasha Smits got onto the score sheet next after an excellent delivery from Kelly Smith across the goal and Tasha finished off with a nice header at the far post to make it 3-0. Bergholt Women had chances to get back into the game but due to fantastic defending by Aliyah Anthony their chances came to nothing. The half time whistle blew with the score 3-0 to the hosts.

The 2nd half started much like like the first half with Cheshunt on the attack. Just missing the final pass to increase the score. Unfortunately there was a lengthy delay during the second half due to Bergholt player needing medical treatment. Once she was ok to continue, Cheshunt had numerous shots on goal, but some good defending stopped the score increasing until the 80yh minute, when, Fran Gamble completed her hat trick after some great link up play with Karesha Iton. A perfectly timed through ball saw the ball pass the keeper into the net to make it 4-0 to Cheshunt. The score increased again in the 89th minute with an inch prefect cross from Kelly Smith for Tina Higgs to head home at the near post to make it 5-0. Cheshunt made it 6-0 deep into injury time with Chante Mason, one on one with the keeper, calmly put the ball into the net. Full Time Cheshunt 6 East Bergholt United Women 0.
