Harleston Magpies Ladies travelled to central London to face table-topping Hampstead & Westminster and suffered a 6-0 defeat.
This was always going to be a tough game against a well-drilled team with a 100 percent record but Magpies proved their resilience by battling to the end, with keeper Charlotte Peet making some excellent stops.
The game began with H&W applying some pressure and they went ahead with a short corner goal after just four minutes.
Lauren Barber's shot from a short corner was then cleared off the line by the H&W defence while Abby Gooderham was later denied by a good save but H&W scored their second from their sixth penalty corner to make it 2-0.
The second half continued where the first half finished, with relentless H&W possession and from their 10th short corner of the match the hosts made it 3-0. Two good goals from fast attacking breaks made it 5-0 before a sixth was added near the end.
