PUBLISHED: 17:00 12 November 2019
Brent Under-13 girls bounced back to winning ways with a superb team performance by beating Regents Park 4-0 in a top-of-the-table clash.
Giussepina Carnavale's inch perfect cross was met with a volley by Scout Waddington at the far post to put Brent 1-0 up.
It was soon 2-0 when Maddie Muir drove down the left wing and gave the ball back to Sophie Kew, who unleashed a thunderbolt into the top corner.
The third goal was a contestant for goal of the season and was started by Brent keeper Milly May Blue, whose quick throw sent Dibley Dias racing down the right.
She passed to Chloe O'Donoghue on the right wing, who dribbled past her marker and fizzed the ball into the box where Waddington's volley hit the post and the quick thinking Maya Rosenberg reacted first to slot the ball into the net.
Carnavale added another late on to cap off a fine performance and victory for Brent.

Henry soon struck again, this time finishing into the bottom left corner from Kate Fox's through ball.
And she soon had her hat-trick when she finished another one-on-one to put Brent 3-2 up.
Goalkeeper Kathleen then made a great save from a long-distance strike before quickly starting an attack with a long kick.
She found Henry, who shielded the ball before letting it run across her body and went through on goal, showing lovely composure to finish off the game within the last five minutes.
