MID-season champions, Barbican, continued their impressive run in the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF)/Sherwin Williams Women's League with a 9-0 drubbing of Waterhouse at Barbican on Wednesday.

Jody-Ann McGregor, Taneisha Francis and Fern Maxwell all scored twice for Charles Edwards' team, which stayed atop Zone B.

Petrona Rickett opened the scoring after just three minutes, and Tyiesha Grant made it 2-0 half an hour later.

McGregor scored her first four minutes afterwards before Hishamar Faulkner made it 4-0 before the break.

Francis opened her account after 11 minutes in the second half, with McGregor adding her second 15 minutes from time.

National defender, Maxwell, then traded positions with Tamara Honeywell and the burly player struck in the 82nd and 87th to give her team an 8-0 lead. Francis sealed the issue a minute from time.

Edwards was very happy with his team's display: "I'm very, very pleased with their performance. The girls played well and put away their chances," he said.

"It's a very good signal after winning the mid-season final, going towards the semifinals and finals. We just want to take it from here and get ourselves ready for the semis," Edwards said.

In other games, Elizabeth Vassell and Megg Sterns scored two goals apiece to give Untouchables a 5-0 win over Blacks United. Kimberley Petgrave got the other for the winners.

At Cling Cling Oval, national senior captain, Alicia James, scored a hat-trick as Olympic Gardens hammered Maverley 14-0.

Kerry-Ann Henry, Denise Malcolm and Nadine James scored doubles for the winners, while Claudia Walker, Andrea Duffus, Latoya Reid, Claudia Calender and Tiffany Hunter also got onto the score sheet.

At Racing, defending champions, Portmore Strikers, defeated Rae Town 1-0 courtesy of Keisha Brown's 89th-minute strike.
