Dromore Ladies, sponsored by Dromore Dental, were in seventh heaven on Saturday as they swept aside Greenisland Ladies in style.
Gemma McKitterich bagged a hat-trick, paving the way to a storming 7-0 win.
Dromore, pushing for promotion, started off with a well taken Captain’s goal by Tara Malcolmson from a Nicki Wilson switch at the first penalty corner of the game,
The second goal arrived courtesy of forward Gemma McKitterick. A well placed aerial from Sarah Wilson was moved on by Sarah Russell to McKitterick who finished her own rebound after an initial excellent save from the Greenisland keeper.
Anna Martin added the third after half-time. The initial skills from midfield shown by Chelsey Whan and Nicki Wilson teed up the veteran defender, who finished with aplomb after finding herself in unfamiliar territory in the Greenisland circle.
Whan added number four herself. Holly Hanna fed the red hot midfielder who entered the circle unchallenged and unleashed a fabulous shot in the far corner of the net.
Dromore won another penalty corner but this time Captain Malcolmson saw her well worked shot saved by the energetic keeper.
Gemma McKitterick added her second and Dromore’s fifth of the game with an almost carbon copy of Whan’s effort, a superbly taken goal from the right hand side of the circle was dispatched and roared into the far corner.
Nicki Wilson, the Dromore playmaker, got her name on the scoresheet, finishing from close range with pinpoint precision, with Catherine Pepper instrumental in the build up.
Hannah Russell was her usual lively self on the right, skipping past defenders and almost provided defender Louise McKitterick with her first goal for the club.
Gemma McKitterick added Dromore’s seventh and also completed her hat trick with a nice defelection across the Greenisland keeper. It was a well taken hat-trick showing great vision and skill.
The Dromore Dental player of the match was awarded to Hat Trick hero Gemma McKitterick. Also special mention to young player Alex Malone who left the game after only one minute due to a nasty hand injury.
