WINNINGTON Park stunned high-flying Sale, inflicting on their hosts only a second defeat this season in the Cheshire Women’s League.

The visitors took the lead inside five minutes when Karen Morgan netted the first goal of a personal hat-trick, followed by a Leona Wyllie strike.

Sale rallied to level before the interval, but found goalkeeper Helen Hogben and defensive duo Kirsty Robinson and Jane Turley hard to beat after the break.

Morgan’s effort put Park ahead again, Wyllie added a fourth and skipper Eileen Miller applied a clinical finish to make it 5-2.

Sale reduced the deficit once more, only for debutant Maz Rose to set up Morgan late on to complete her treble.
