First treble for Kiff: Women’s Football
‘St Albans City Ladies recorded a much needed 3-0 win against Dunstable Town Ladies on Sunday. City dominated from the first whistle. They went ahead as Kelly Hancock drove towards the Dunstable goal and pulled it back to Megan Kiff, whose shot rippled the back of the net. With consistent effort from City, Kiff was teed up beautifully by Sophie Joseph to score her second of the match with a lovely touch round the keeper.
Saints again started the second half strongly. Coral Clayton found a burst of pace to drag one of the Dunstable players to create space for Kiff , to pounce on the incoming ball, She put the game out of reach of the opposition and sealed her first hat-trick for the club. That also secured the three points for City’.
Megan followed up this hat trick with another winning goal the following week.
