The away side opened the goalscoring after just three minutes when Ellen Salter’s knock-down was converted by Leigh Burrows.

Hemel were allowed plenty of possession but Levy doubled their lead after 17 minutes when Salter once again fed Burrows to swivel and finish well for her second goal.

Mia Hickey forced an own-goal to make it 3-0 before half-time, and Green started the second half in unforgiving fashion.

Burrows made it 4-0 as she completed her hat-trick six minutes after the interval and, two minutes later, the scorer turned provider – feeding Salter for Levy’s fifth

Salter completed her hat-trick with two further efforts to make it 7-0 with 20 minutes to play, before her sister Cally Salter added an eighth with a 30-yard free-kick.

Ellie Pickard scored her first career goal to make it nine, before player of the match Pru Squires-Adams completed the rout.
