SALISBURY women comfortably dispatched Westbury Town, easing to a 3-1 win.

A first-half opener from Rachel Lang was added to by two strikes from Zoe Alcock and Ellen Clarke in the second-half, Westbury grabbing what proved to be scant consolation through Alice Bevan.

The Whites earned an early lead with some strong play down the left-hand flank, Deyna Davie teeing up Lang to drive at the Westbury defence.

Lang rounded off a mazy run with a cut-back finish to open scores.
The rest of the first-half passed by without major goalmouth action, despite both sides pouring forward in numbers.
Salisbury wasted no time in strengthening their control of the game in the second half, this time punishing the hosts on the opposite flank.

Leanne Griffiths-Lower drifted into space on the right side, allowing her to deliver a dangerous cross into the box.

Alcock was well-placed to applying the finishing touch, the ball ending up in the back of the net with the assistance of a deflection off a Westbury defender.

Despite their comfortable winning margin, Salisbury were kept on their toes at the back, as Evie Cummings was forced to make a goal-line clearance.
Westbury were given a way back into the game when they earnt a free-kick in a dangerous position. Bevan stepped up to send an effort beyond Daisy Burnfield in the Salisbury goal, setting up a grandstand finish with 10 minutes left to go. 

However, any suggestion of a Westbury comeback was quickly snuffed out as Salisbury instantly restored their two-goal advantage following the restart.

Quickly earning a corner from kick-off, Griffiths-Lower delivered the set-piece to find Clarke inside the box, the Whites’ vice-captain bundling home her side’s third goal.

Now at the half-way point of their league season, the result leaves the Whites in third place in the Wiltshire County Ladies Premier League, four points above Westbury, who enjoy a game in hand advantage over Salisbury.
