Histon warmed up for their League Plate Semi Final against Hutton with this comprehensive victory over Ipswich.

After several early chances and possession they went ahead in the 17th minute, Shiv White putting in a corner from the right and Abi Davies meeting the kick with a volley that took it past the goalkeeper.

Five minutes later the lead was doubled, Sophie Lanham’s 20 yard effort going low and through the ‘keeper.

A quarter of an hour afterwards, and with eight minutes to go before half time, the away side were three goals to the good, Davies’ cross met with a crushing volley by Ali Wright that almost burst through the net.

With 40 minutes gone Histon gave themselves a four goal lead going into the break, Lanham placing a shot high under the cross bar that the home ‘keeper couldn’t keep out.

Twenty minutes after half time it was five for the travelling side, Sophie Hopkin finding the near top left corner of the net off the woodwork after making space for the shot.

On 69 minutes what proved to be the final goal of the game came, Brie Baker’s 35 yard effort going over the goalkeeper and in.
