Ladies put ten past London Bees

05/02/2018

Chelsea Ladies beat London Bees 10-0 in the fourth round of the Women's FA Cup, setting up a home tie in the fifth round against Doncaster Rovers Belles.

Scotland striker Erin Cuthbert scored a hat-trick, while Katie Chapman and Fran Kirby both scored two goals each.

The Blues created the best of the early chances, but it took until the 20th minute for the Blues to go ahead, when Cuthbert latched onto a long ball to lob the goalkeeper.

The floodgates opened, and Chelsea went two ahead two minutes later. Ji So-Yun and Fran Kirby exchanged a clever one-two, and the South Korean struck the ball past the goalkeeper.

A cross whipped in by Karen Carney forced an own goal for Chelsea's third, and then Kirby scored her first and Chelsea's fourth just after half-time, taking advantage of a Bees goalkeeping error.

A few minutes after the hour-mark, Kirby scored her second goal of the match, making some space for herself in the Bees box and stroking the ball into the bottom corner.

The goals came thick and fast over the remaining 20 minutes. Kirby created another goal, crossing for Chapman to score her first. Millie Bright then pounced on the ball after her first shot was saved to score another.

Cuthbert scored the last two goals of her hat-trick in a six-minute spell, finishing Jonna Andersson's cross before winning and scoring a penalty.

Chapman made it 10-0 in the 90th minute to cap off a brilliant match for the Blues!

Next up is a visit to Birmingham City in the Women's Super League, before the visit of Doncaster in the cup in two weeks' time!
