Emma Faux opened the scoring from a short corner after five minutes. she added another from another penalty corner on eight minutes before Jeorgia Carr made it 3-0 after just 11 minutes.

Faux completed her hat-trick before the interval, while Tierney Augustine (2) and Carr (again) also netted before the visitors could reach the sanctuary of half-time.

Carr, who was named player-of-the-match, completed her hat-trick after Anna Faux had also scored. In between those goals Colchester scored their consolation goal.

City have now strengthened their grip on second place ahead of next Saturday’s (February 11) trip to bottom club Bury St Edmunds.
