As has been common this campaign, Town got off to a fast start and found themselves in front within three minutes. After Kent failed to clear an Amanda Crump corner, the ball fell kindly for King to tee up Wilson, who curled the ball high over the head of Chloe Francis from outside the area. The Blues began to take full control of the game and could've been two goals to the good inside fifteen minutes but King's goal-bound effort was hacked off the line by Maisie Joyce. The chances began to stack up as Lucy Egan, Natasha Thomas and Crump all came close to doubling Town's lead.
The inevitable second goal arrived shortly after following some individual brilliance from Grey. After receiving the ball from Crump on the edge of the area, the Town winger cut inside before firing into the far corner through the fingertips of Francis. The Tractor Girls would soon have a goal disallowed as King was flagged offside after receiving Thomas' improvised hooked pass. However, just three minutes later, Town did have their third of the afternoon. Thomas broke into the area after a throw-in and played the ball square to King, whose scuffed effort fell kindly for Cossey to bury from close-range.
The second-half started incredibly scrappy and it took Town a good fifteen minutes to reassert their threat going forward. King was having a frustrating afternoon in front of goal but the young midfielder soon put those frustrations to bed as she finally got the goal her excellent performance had deserved. After latching on to Cossey's through-ball, she went past Emma Squirell with a deft touch before finding the bottom-left corner with a pinpoint low strike. The Tractor Girls continued to dominate the game and created no end of chances, with King once again unlucky to have not added to her solitary goal after being denied by a tandem block on the line from Francis and Lucy Cockerill.
Kent had failed to test Lucy Williamson in the Town net for the overwhelming majority of the game but the Blues' stopper was called into action in the final minutes after a wind-assisted corner nearly floated in at the near-post. That would be the closest the visitors would come all afternoon as the Tractor Girls saw the game out comfortably to secure their first league win of 2020.
The result sees Town leapfrog AFC Wimbledon and retake first place in the table ahead of next Sunday's trip to Actonians.
