Gillingham Ladies 7 London Corinthians Ladies 0
Report by John Seager
Charlotte Gurr scores six goals for Gillingham Ladies securing progress through to the semi finals of the Kent FA Women’s Cup, defeating the reigning cup holders London Corinthians Ladies.
The visitors had the first chance of the game, when Laura Susarta got the ball inside the Gillingham penalty area, but she could only drill her shot into the side netting.
Gurr opened the scoring after 15 minutes; she got the ball outside the penalty area and used her pace to push forward and coolly slot the ball past Jade Charlton.
Gurr added her second goal of the game three minutes before half time, striking a sweet shot from twelve yards out, finding the bottom corner of the net.
Gurr almost completed a first half hat trick; she broke though again on goal, but her well timed shot was cleared off the line and away from danger as the first half came to an end.
Gillingham then upped the ante in the second half, with Gurr completing her hat trick only two minutes after the restart.
Three minutes later, Gurr got at the end of a good cross from Jay Blackie, slotting the ball past Charlton from three yards out for her fourth goal of the game.
Gillingham almost added a fifth goal when Blackie had a chance to score from inside the penalty area, firing a low shot at Charlton, who managed to divert the shot onto the post and the ball was cleared away from danger.
Gillingham did get a fifth goal when April Bowers scored on 68 minutes. Blackie squared the ball to Bowers inside the penalty area and Bowers slotted the ball under the outrushing Charlton and into the net.
Gurr completed the scoring by adding two more goals that happened late in the game. Her fifth goal came when she was on the end of another Blackie cross and she tapped the ball past Charlton. Her seventh goal came this time from a Lauren Williams cross and Gurr tapped the ball into the net.
