NORTH Shields Under-10 Girls took a long time to see off a plucky Montague before winning 5-0.
Shields struggled to get any momentum as Montague spurned several good chances.
But they dragged themselves back into the game and Katie Barker beat several defenders and then the keeper to open the scoring.
The games best goal soon followed with Barker collecting a pass from Brooke Patterson to center for Nicole Gardiner to volley the second.
With Emily Pearson dominating midfield Shields created more chances with Jasmine Stephenson, Sian Nelson and Maia Welch all went close before Barker and Gardiner again scored.
The final quarter saw Elizabeth Tait and Daisy Rowe push forward as Montague tired.
Barker completed her hat-trick to give Shields a fifth and final goal.
