Smith shows hat-trick skills as Wasps return to winning ways
London & South East
Hemel Hempstead 1
Crawley Wasps 4
Toni Smith completed a superb hat-trick as Wasps learnt the lessons of the defeat the week before and returned with an invaluable three points from their trip to Hertfordshire.
Smith opened her account with a 15-yard shot home to the left of the keeper.
Holly Walker supplied Smith on the half hour to calmly finish for her brace.
With half-time approaching Hemel Hempstead pulled a goal back on the break.
The hosts were fastest out of the blocks after the break and stand-in keeper Natalie Stephenson was forced to make some brave blocks.
On 70 minutes Smith held it up for Barry to make it 3-1 over the keeper’s head from a tight angle.
With five minutes left Smith sealed victory with a cracking 18-yard drive.
Wasps: Stephenson, Harding, T Smith, Walker, Elliott, N Smith, Martin (Capt), Elphick, Barry, Worsfold, Ward, Hallgren, McCarthy.
