Bideford Ladies continued their solid start to the season with a good 6-1 victory over Exeter & Tedburn.
Bideford started brightly and opened the scoring after 5 minutes with a cool finish from Under 18 player Alice Beresford. A lapse in concentration led to Exeter and Tedburn equalising after a poor clearance and a goalmouth scramble. Bideford continued to press and were rewarded when a deep cross from Beresford was volleyed home by Emma Stoneman. Beth Ellis then scored two quick goals after being released by Rohana Little to give the home team a 4-1 advantage at half time.
After the break Bideford continued to press and Ellis again was on hand to score with a cool finish for her hattrick. Her fourth soon followed and Bideford struggled to break down a solid compact Tedburn defence to end the game 6-1 winners.
