Blackpool needed to cement a win to retain the league champions spot. Walshaw were determined not too make it too easy as they started off much the brighter of the two teams.
Hannah Wright had a half chance for Pool in the opening minutes. Walshaw though, were trying to get an early goal and proceeded to play very well getting an early shot away which was saved by Erin Croft.
Natasha Marshall went close for Pool's opening goal after getting on the end of a Natasha Fenton run. Blackpool broke threw the deadlock though on 13 minutes when Fenton went on a fabulous run from the half way line unaided and was rewarded with the first goal. The seasiders now had the bit between their teeth and Marshall tapped in the second on 18 minutes. Wright who had been unlucky in the opening minutes made amends and got the third goal. However after that little goal fest the Seasiders were still not at their best. Stephanie Haigh had to go off injured with Eleanor Bannister coming on. Despite not playing well Fenton got a fourth goal for Pool. Chyna Appleton busy as ever in midfield had a great shot but was unable to convert and Fenton had another shot over the bar. The defence of Amy Sudworth, Evren Verdu and Bannister were caught on unawares when Walshaw who's heads hadn't dropped picked up the ball and went on a good run and were rewarded with a goal just before half time.
Second half saw Haigh back and Fenton quickly got back into the groove with an attacking run from captain Karis Harrison who had moved to the right wing which ended in a fifth goal. Blackpool had now got back into attacking mode and most of the play was in Walshaw's half. Marshall pounced on the ball to get the Seasiders sixth goal and her brace. Good ball from Haigh saw Fenton through for her fourth and the Seasiders seventh and final goal of the game. Haigh playing a more attacking role than usual had lions share of chances in this half but was unable to convert not for the want of trying despite her team mates best efforts for her to score. Ellie Fisher came on for Bannister and was immediately in the action. Walshaw got their second goal which came from a blistering shot that Jordyn Ellison was unable to get a hand to.
Final score was 7-2 to Blackpool, player of the match was Stephanie Haigh.
