Lowick travelled to Kader with only ten players, but a Michelle Stewart hat-trick secured an impressive win.

The match was played on a heavy pitch, which was always going to test the stamina of Lowick’s weakened team.

The home team struck first with a looping shot that left Lowick keeper Powell no chance. But Lowick got their passing game going and started causing Kader problems.

Lone striker Stewart went close, but it was Jenna Waddell then broke her duck with her first of the season, a fierce shot from the edge of the box making it 1-1.

At the turnaround and straight from kick off Lowick won a free kick. Kirstie Tang’s cross was met by Amy Hately, who flicked on to make it 1-2.

Kader were struggling to make the extra player count, and it was Lowick who struck after a breakaway. From another free-kick, a pinpoint pass found Stewart, who kept her cool to slot home.

Kader struck back immediately. But another run from Stewart resulted in a goal to make it 4-2. Kader were then reduced to 10 men wen the ball went out for a corner, to which the home keeper took exception. Words were exchanged between her and the referee which resulted in a straight red card for foul and abusive language. With the numbers Stewart completed her hat-trick to fire past the stand in keeper.

The effort given by Lowick’s 10 players was unbelievable they all worked hard and everyone of them gave 110 per cent. Lowick are yet again on their travels next week as they go to Gateshead.
