Cassie Steward scores the first of her three goals.

Dean Steward’s side produced a superb all-round team performance to topple previous leaders Eastwood 4-0 at the Branch Bros Stadium.

Emma Pollard opened the scoring with a mazy run into the box, beating two defenders before slotting the ball past the keeper.

Cassie Steward added a second after her sister Katie had won a 50/50 challenge with the keeper and she went on to complete her hat-trick with two more strikes in the second half. Her hat-trick goal was a piledriver into the roof of the net from the edge of the box.
