Peterborough United Women bounce back to form with a big win
Posh had been bruised by a four-goal defeat in their previous National League outing and took it out on struggling Wem Town in a Midlands Division One clash.
Posh got off to a perfect start when Evie Driscoll-King opened the scoring after just three minutes. A corner into the box from Rachel Lawrence was missed by the keeper and allowed Driscoll-King to tap it home at the back-post for her first National League goal.
After some end-to-end action Lawrence made it 2-0 on 35 minutes after a cross from Keir Perkins had struck the inside of the post.
And it was three on 41 minutes when recent signing Rosie Axten bagged her first Posh goal following a Perkins’ cross.
Tara Kirk set up Perkins for number four 10 minutes into the second-half and the Posh skipper struck again two minutes later after pouncing on Driscoll’s long pass.
And Driscoll completed the scoring on 81 minutes with a cracking finish after accepting a pass from Megan Lawlor.
Posh have a tasty local derby against Northampton Town at Wellingborough Whitworth FC on Thursday (March 16). Posh are fifth, a place and three points above Cobblers.
