Kendal only had 11 players and had been blighted by illness in the build up to their match at Bolton on Saturday.  After a tense start they played their way into the game and started to dominate.  Three goals followed in quick succession.  The first was created by Nicola Conway who threaded a pass to the far post for Sally Scott to put away.  Conway went on to score a couple of goals that included a deflection and a clever reverse stick pass into the net.

After half time Bolton rallied and brought it back to 3-1, scoring from a goal-mouth scramble at a short corner.  Some fantastic saves from Fiona Battersby and fine tackles from Nicola Martindale and Emma Woodburn kept Kendal ahead.  Eventually they took control again.  Conway completed her hatrick with a powerful short corner strike then Vicky Jones ran the length of the pitch to get on the end of a Carole Quill pass and drill it through the keepers legs.

Despite this solid 5-1 win Kendal will not be complacent as they take on Timperley at home next Saturday.  Pass back is 12.30pm at Kirkbie Kendal School.
