The Hares dispatched Riverside Ladies 8-4 at the GER on Sunday, October 4, with Josie Turner returning from suspension with a 15-minute hat-trick.

Turner first chipped the goalkeeper from 15 yards, before a close-range effort and tidy side-footed finish earned her treble.

Riverside pulled one back on 30 minutes, before Yaz Holmes turned home an Abby Grist cross.

The visitors got their second, which led Grist to score following a weaving run before Turner grabbed her fourth from close-range.
