Vast experience triumphed over youth at Ainslie Park on Sunday as Paul White’s youthful Forfar Farmington side slumped to a sixteen nil defeat away to Spartans in the Scottish Women’s Premier League.

The visitors were forced to play midfielder Ellice Brannan in goal due to a goalkeeper injury crisis as well as only being able to name two substitutes.

Sarah Ewens opened the scoring after 12 mins, before Amy Gallacher had a chance to equalise with a penalty two minutes later after she was fouled but Rachel Harrison did well to save the spot kick.

Ewens scored twice in two minutes to complete her hat trick halfway through the first half, with Ciara Barnes, Danni Pagliarulo and Ewens again making it six nil at half time.

In the second half Ewens completed a double hat-trick by the 65th minute making it 8-0 before Kerry Montgomery nabbed a hat-trick for herself between the 69th and 78th minute, Sarah Briggs also firing home.

In the final ten minutes Ewens scored a seventh, Pagliarulo, Alana Marshall and Montgomery’s fourth completed the thumping victory for Spartans.

The result leaves Farmington still in eleventh place, with a great chance of some points next week when Inverness City visit Station Park.

Ramblings of a Loon’s Player of the Match: Kayleigh Brough, looks like a powerful and aggressive defender.

Spartans: Rachel Harrison, Ciara Barnes, Steph Briggs (Bobbie Beveridge 72), Kirsty Hamilton (Suzy Shepherd 58), Alana Marshall, Katie Reilly, Danni Pagliarulo, Kirsty Montgomery, Ronaigh Douglas (Tracy Donachie 67), Sarah Ewens, Louise Mason (Natasha McMahon 72).
