Jane Proctor produced another masterclass in front of goal as Pelicans Ladies gave the students of Cambridge a seven-goal lesson on Saturday.The ladies’ captain added four more goals to her ever-growing collection as the team produced their best display of the season to continue their recent winning streak.Proctor praised her side’s ruthless display, saying: “It was a great team effort, which paid off with a brilliant 7-0 win.”Every single player gave 100 per cent which showed in the final result.”We’re looking strong going into our next game against Cambridge City 4s, who sit one place above us in the table.”The game saw the return of Rachel Drohan and Sam Tea, who slipped effortlessly back into the fold.Pelicans were greeted by a partially frozen pitch on their arrival to the University grounds and the game was in doubt from the offset.The umpires decided to see how it went but, undeterred by the conditions, Pelicans took this in their stride and piled on the pressure from the first whistle.Proctor opened the scoring, smashing a shot past the University goalkeeperA combination of Bianca Fraulo Hilario, Kiona Sequeira and the newly acquired Drohan were a joy to watch in midfield, with the trio moving the ball fantastically well.A second goal arrived in quick succession as attacking defender Jess Williams crossed for the Pelicans captain to add her second.Sequeira’s impressive performance was rewarded with a brace of goals.Her first came from a loose ball in a defensive error that was smashed into the goal and her second was a clean connection from a reverse shot which ricocheted from the left post to the right.The deadly Proctor struck twice more in the second half, punishing defensive errors from the home side, to take her tally for the season up to 21.There was still time for left-back Williams to get in on the act with a tap in on the post from a well-worked short corner routine.On Saturday, Pelicans welcome Cambridge City 4s to Alive Lynnsport knowing that a win will see them close the gap on the side sitting fourth in the East Women’s Division 2 North West standings.Player-of-the-match: Jane Proctor.
