Huddersfield Town Ladies’ unbeaten Under 13 team took centre stage as the firsts’ FA Women’s Premier League North Division game against Blackburn Rovers fell victim to a waterlogged pitch at Storthes Hall.
A 4-1 home win over Sheffield United Community Ladies mean they are three points clear of Steel City Wanderers at the top of their Sheffield and Hallamshire Girls League division.
And Town, who host Dronfield Town this Saturday (10.30), have two games on hand on their nearest rivals.
United too an early lead after a slip-up, but the home team soon started to press, and Macy Ellis had a number of good opportunities to bring Town level.
Brodie Haigh also had a strong shot well saved before, in the 25th minute, Alicia Marriott played a nice ball in to Courtney Livsey, who ran clear of the United defence and finished well.
Town were again tested early in the second half and Emily Brookes produced an excellent save from a powerful shot.
Their second goal arrived when Marriott struck a strong low cross into the box and Ellis made no mistake from a yard out.
The scorer then teed up Livsey, who scored her second of the game.
Olivia Burgin had a goal disallowed before a poor clearance was picked up by Haigh, who netted from 20 yards out.
Livsey was named player of the match.
The first team are in FA Women’s Cup second-round action at Bradford City on Sunday (1.00).
The Under 18s are in Sheffield and Hallamshire League action at Dronfield Town (11.00).
