Tottenham Hotspur Ladies hit Watford with a super six during a dominant 6-0 performance at Cheshunt Football Ground, to claim back-to-back victories in the FA Women’s Super League 2.

Sarah Wiltshire’s cross-field pass saw Bianca Baptiste find the side-netting inside four minutes. Coral-Jade Haines recycled to Baptiste who curled into the far corner, but was deemed offside two minutes later.

Baptiste was denied by Frances Kitching after latching onto Wiltshire’s splendid pass over the top on ten minutes.

Ashleigh Neville tracked back to stop Helen Ward’s one-on-one following 15 minutes. Josie Green sprayed Wiltshire through, but Kitching hooked clear two minutes later.

In the 19th minute, Haines’ stunning pass sent Wiltshire away to the inside left whose chip floated into the far corner for the opening goal.

Baptiste’s 35-yard lob evaded the upright three minutes on. Neville hooked wide from Wiltshire’s cross on 26 minutes.

In the same minute, Haines sent Neville down the right whose persistence inside the box saw Lucia Leon strike home.

Baptiste weaved in and out but hit wide on 34 minutes and Kitching’s low stop denied the menacing forward three minutes on.

Baptiste lobbed Kitching from Wiltshire’s pass, but was ruled offside reaching 38 minutes.

Haines dispossessed Ward on the edge of her own box on 42 minutes and Wiltshire curled onto the bar two minutes later.

Wiltshire sent Ryah Vyse down the left whose cross evaded Martin on 45 minutes and it was 3-0 before the break. Baptiste’s cross from the right picked out Wiltshire who guided home.

Three minutes after the restart, Baptiste’s corner couldn’t be turned home by Martin or Renee Hector. On 53 minutes, Haines’ splitting pass sent Leon through who was angled wide only for Wiltshire to place across for her hat-trick.

Anneka Nuttall’s menacing shot was blocked by Jenna Schillaci inside the box on the hour mark.

Leon’s header from Baptiste’s cross forced Kitching to tip away five minutes later.

Wiltshire’s cross from the left was headed wide by Haines on 75 minutes. Baptiste’s 30-yard dipper went inches over and Haines’ piledriver from afar was tipped over in a two minute spell.

86 minutes saw Green break an attack and deliver an eye-catching pass for Baptiste to slot into the far corner for five.

And on 89 minutes, it was six when Lauren Pickett sent Baptiste round the corner who placed inside the post.
