AML­WCH Town are top of the North Wales Women’s Football League on goal dif­fer­ence af­ter last Sun­day’s 6-0 ham­mer­ing of bot­tom side Point.

The open­ing goal ar­rived on 21 min­utes when Chloe Tay­lor’s burst through the mid­dle of the vis­it­ing de­fence saw the midfielder slot home her first goal for the club.

Seven min­utes later it was 2-0 as Sara Fur­long also broke her duck for the club with an ef­fort on the edge of the area that was tucked into the bot­tom cor­ner.

On 34 min­utes it was 3-0 as Point cleared an Aml­wch set-piece only as far as Lexi Mus­grave who turned on the edge of the box to lob the ball over vis­it­ing keeper Sara Friend.

Four min­utes later saw Friend’s game came to a pre­ma­ture end as she was dis­missed for bring­ing down Shan­non Thomas on the edge of the area leav­ing the match of­fi­cial no op­tion but to show the red card as the last de­fender.

With re­place­ment keeper Hollie Groves’ tak­ing over be­tween the sticks, one of her first tasks was to pick the ball out of the net in the 41st minute.

A ball over the de­fence was con­trolled per­fectly by Thomas, who calmly fired past the ad­vanc­ing stand-in for what was also her first goal for the club and with it giv­ing the Blues a 4-0 ad­van­tage at the break.

The sec­ond half was only six min­utes old when Cerys Gadd joined the scor­ers’ list, chip­ping the ball over Groves from to make it 5-0.

With a five-goal ad­van­tage in Aml­wch’s favour, man­ager An­drew Wright took the op­por­tu­nity to ring the changes with all sub­sti­tutes slowly in­tro­duced into the fray.

One of them, Char­lotte Webb, al­most had an im­me­di­ate im­pact only to see her ef­fort cannon off the wood­work.

The fi­nal goal of the game came with six min­utes re­main­ing when an Aml­wch throw-in reached Katie Lew­tas, who squared the ball to Mus­grave to ri­fle home her sec­ond net-fin­der of the af­ter­noon.
