Chesterfield FC Women got off to a flying start in the Derbyshire FA Women’s Cup, beating Hasland Ladies FC 5-0 in the first round on Sunday.
Chesterfield started brightly when, after just two minutes, Sammy Stokes found space on the left and drilled in a low cross towards Gina Camfield, whose effort went just over the bar.
A minute later, the Spireites were in front following a goal from Ami Buzzeo who, after being played in behind the Hasland defence, calmly slotted the ball past the on rushing keeper.
Four minutes later, a mix-up at the back between two defenders cleared the path for Camfield to race through on goal and place the ball past the keeper.
The next major opportunity came when Beth Smyth delivered a great cross to Buzzeo, who headed over from a few yards out.
The Spireites found a third when Camfield crossed to Sammy Stokes (28), who out-jumped the defence and powered her header into the roof of the net.
Five minutes before the half-time whistle, Hasland had their only shot of the game, the quick number 14 finding a sight of goal and taking a shot, but it was tame and straight at Nic Watson.
Mike Noon made one change at half time when Buzzeo made way for recent signing Kelly Fidler.
Two minutes after the restart, Paige Singleton missed an opportunity to kill the game off when Camfield laid the ball off to Singleton, who sliced her shot just wide.
Noon made his second substitution on 50 minutes when Izzy Lonsdale came on in place of Singleton.
On the hour-mark, Camfield turned provider for Stokes again when the number 11 found Stokes on the edge of the area and she placed the ball into the bottom right-hand corner, leaving the keeper with no chance.
Five minutes later, the Spireites made it 5-0 when Fidler played left-back Steph Warren in behind and on the volley she smashed the ball past the keeper at her near post.
