Huddersfield Town Ladies continue to lead the FA Women’s Premier League Northern Division with a 100% record.
Their fifth victims of the season were Newcastle United, beaten 3-0 at the Northumbria University Sports Grounds.
After a tight and nervy first half of few chances, Town broke the deadlock in the 70th minute.
Debbie Hastings latched onto Samantha Conroy’s through ball to round the keeper and slot home.
Eight minutes later, Hastings struck again, smashing home Alarna Fuller’s header from a corner by captain Kate Mallin.
Fuller added the third with a low drive into the bottom corner.
Dominique Balmond was player of the match for Town, who host Stoke City on Sunday (2.00).
Town Reserves suffered a heavy 10-2 defeat at home to Bradford City.
Beth Ginley and Rebecca Sherrard scored.
Maddie Walsh, Ella Gill, Sian Lewis and Jess Holland were on target for the Under 18s, who beat Sheffield United Community Ladies 4-3 in their second Sheffield & Hallamshire League game.
The Under 15s were 4-1 winners at Wickersley Youth.
Town started slowly and the home team had the bulk of possession in the first quarter of the game without ever threatening Isobel Pare in goal.
Defenders Isobel Boothroyd, playing her 50th game for the club, and player of the match Imogen Pow were in full control and Town gradually began to assert their superiority.
Tara Duce, Amy Broomhead and Ella Harris all had chances before Town took the lead on 27 minutes.
A Duce corner caused problems in the home defence and Lauren Bullock was on hand to steer the ball into the net.
Skipper Laura Walker came close with a powerful header from another Duce corner just before the break.
Ten minutes into the second half Town doubled their lead, another corner falling kindly to Harris, who scored from close range.
Eleanor Smith was unlucky with a long shot which was well saved by the home keeper.
Pare was a spectator for much of the half but did save well with her feet after 64 minutes.
Wickersley were occasionally causing Town some problems on the break and pulled a goal back.
But within 60 seconds Town had restored their two-goal lead with the best goal of the game.
Smith took a throw in the right-hand corner to Walker, who crossed for Harris to control the ball and finish well.
Olivia Bennett completed the scoring.
Faye Allen was effective on the right wing and Rose Priestley strong in midfield, allowing Olivia Tetley to play at left-back.
The Under 13s won 4-3 at Sheffield United Community Ladies.
Sheffield scored after seven minutes, but Town came back strongly and equalised on 12 through Olivia Burgin, who netted an excellent shot.
Macy Ellis hit a post before sister Molly netted from close range from a 19th-minute corner.
Town conceded two goals in two minutes just before half-time.
But Alicia Marriott levelled with a well-struck shot before a 61st-minute corner found Courtney Livsey, who controlled and claimed the winner.
Brodie Haigh was player of the match.
