A HAT-TRICK from Gemma Davison helped Watford Ladies under 15s to a resounding 6-1 victory away to QPR on Sunday, December 2.

On a sticky pitch, the early pressure was all QPR's, but gradually Watford started to string passes together, and after ten minutes, Davison went on a mazey run that ended with a fine cross for Kelly Randall to stab home.

Davison then scored three fabulous goals herself, including two wonderful solo efforts.

In between, the Watford defence was barely tested, and when occasionally they were beaten, had makeshift keeper Lizzie Sargeant to thank for keeping a first half clean sheet.

The second half started with more QPR pressure, but with Wiz Hunt and Adora Yau breaking dangerously, more goals seemed inevitable.

The fifth goal, however, came from an unexpected source as substitute Katie Grossmith, back from breaking two toes, met another Turturici corner to power home with her first touch of the match.

QPR then threw everyone forward, and, despite some heroics from Jo Drury and Alicia Fischer, they finally got some reward for their effort with a shot that looped over Sargeant.

However, Watford had the last laugh as Turturici smashed in the sixth to round off a well deserved, but hard fought, victory.

Watford Ladies produced a superb performance, full of crisp football and merciless tackling, to defeat Hampton Ladies 2-1.

After an uncertain first 15 minutes, Watford began to settle, and opened the scoring when Leanne Small latched on to loose ball to fire home left-footed into the bottom right-hand corner.

Watford carried on in the same manner in the second half, and capitalised on their possession when O'Keefe converted a precise ball from Small with her first touch after coming on as a substitute.

Hampton scored a consolation goal with three minutes remaining.

Watford Reserves overcame two missed penalties to defeat Hampton Reserves 4-0.

Watford were quickly into their stride, and Coral Smith converted a Roseanne Walker cross after ten minutes.

Nikki Brady scored the second, and, despite a missed penalty, Watford continued to dominate, and were assisted by an own goal by the opposition's keeper before half time.

The second half was rather scrappy and there were few highlights, but Nikki Brady scored a second goal following a fine strike from Libby Pennent, and then missed a second penalty, five minutes from time.
