reThisgame started very edgy with both teams cancelling each other out.

After 20 minutes Lowick started to get their game together with the first real chance of the match falling to Michelle Stewart, which went just wide.

Lowick then had a succession of corners but failed to make any of them count.

It was Lowick who made the breakthrough, on 27 minutes when some good work down the right by Steph Hay saw her cross the ball into the box where it was met by Georgia Latto, who scored her first goal of the season.

Lowick then hit the crossbar with a fierce free kick from Mel Darling. But they went two up with a great through ball from Jenny Patterson which was latched onto by Amy Hately to coolly slot home.

Lowick started the second half in a more positive manner and started playing the football they have become associated with.

A strong defensive performance dealt with any problems that Redcar tried to throw at them.

Yet again it was Stewart who put Lowick three up after a charging run by Patterson resulted in a trip in the box by the Redcar defender, but the referee played advantage as the ball fell to Stewart who rammed it home.

Stewart then scored her second of the game, following a magical flick by Jenna Kerr which found Stewart, whose shot in turn found the net.

Lowick weren’t finished there. A great ball by Latto onto Stewart saw the striker complet her fifth hat-trick in five games to make it 0-5.

Redcar did get a consolation goal in injury time with an unstoppable strike, but it was Lowick who came home with all three points.

Best for Lowick was Georgia Latto and Kirstie Tang, with the player of the match award going to Jenny Patterson.

Lowick’s next game is on Sunday with another away trip back down to Redcar, this time to play Redcar Town.
