Report: Chelsea Women 6-0 Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women endured a tough night at Kingsmeadow as hat-tricks from Fran Kirby and Bethany England saw Chelsea run out 6-0 winners on Wednesday evening. 

What happened? 

Bristol City Women had the first chance in the opening minute of the game as Juliette Kemppi latched onto a through ball from Julie Biesmans but the striker’s effort could only find the side netting of Carly Telford’s net. 

It didn’t take long for Chelsea to kick into gear and take control of the game as Fran Kirby turned in Erin Cuthbert’s low cross in the second minute, before Chelsea doubled their lead when Cuthbert was again the provider, but this time Bethany England swept the ball into the far corner. =

The visitors picked their heads up and looked to respond with Abi Harrison leading the charge on the counter as well as Ella Rutherford going close with an effort from the edge of the area, but Bristol City Women failed to trouble Telford in the Chelsea goal..

Fran Kirby then added her second before the first half was over as she raced on to a through ball before cutting back and curling the ball into the far corner of the net.

As the second half began Bristol City Women were again the side to carve out the first chance as Abi Harrison was inches away from getting onto the end of Julie Biesmans’ teasing ball into the box. 

Kirby then turned provider for England as the forward chipped the ball into the box and the striker beat her marker to nod past Baggaley in the City Women net. 

Kirby completed her hat-trick from the spot after Gemma Evans fouled Adelina Engmann in the box and England turned in another header with one minute left to take her tally for the evening to three and complete the victory for the Blues.
