EXETER City booked their place in the FA Women's Cup second round with a 7-0 victory over Brislington on Sunday.

The opener came when right-back Emma Redwood set up Catherine Wright, who lashed home for 1-0.

Tash Knapman doubled the lead from a corner before Kirsty Caunter made it 3-0.

Knapman again pounced from close range to double her tally for the afternoon,

Lola Garcia Sanchez then notched the goal her fine performance merited, smashing home into the roof of the net after being set up by Marika Ghiglia's marauding run.

Caunter then notched her second with a bouncing shot which bamboozled the keeper,

Substitute Sophie Lou Simpson netted her maiden goal for City as she was put through on goal to round off the win, and earn a home draw with Swindon Town, who knocked the Grecians out of the cup last season.

"For the first 45 we were well below our normal standards and they were well above theirs," explained manager Steve Tully.

"In the second half we put in a really good display and thoroughly deserved a 7-0 win."

Ashmoor kept up their quest for the Westward Develoments Devon Women's League Premier Division title, beating Exeter University 4-2.

Alphington kept up their march for honours, travelling to play Activate and picking up three more points with a 3-1 victory.

Goals from Laura Burwood, Rachel Golby and Jodie Millett secured the win.

Heavitree's match at home to Feniton was postponed due to water logged pitch.

In Division One, Seaton Town went goal crazy in their local derby with Budleigh Bicton Robins, beating them 6-0.

Cheryl Robson and Jemima Coleman both scored twice, with Tara Arnott and Lara Spiers bagging one apiece.
