Cullercoats made the initial breakthrough on 22 minutes when Bobbie-Lou Taylor played a sublime ball for striker Kennedi Baxter to tuck away the first goal to make it 1-0 to the visitors.

Cullercoats extended their lead on 37 minutes when Baxter smashed a shot into the top corner of the net for her second goal of the game, assisted by Sally Hogarth, making it 2-0 at half-time..

The third goal came on the hour mark when Baxter headed in a Makenzie Leck cross to complete her hat-trick.
