Unbeaten Premier Division leaders Lowestoft Railway were swept aside by a clinical Broadland side who came away from East Point Academy with a stunning 7-0 win.

Helen Brockington completed a hat-trick with two penalty corner conversions and a goal from open play.

That was backed up by some solid team play and creative passing which in turn led to goals from star player Helen Kelly, a snapped up half chance from Lydia Lawrence and goals from Dani Parke and George Stannett.

Railway had opportunities, but keeper Sarah Craig had a fine game to keep a clean sheet.

Norwich Dragons III are now the only unbeaten side in the top flight and they took over at the top following a 7-0 win of their own at Harleston Magpies IV.
