Match report by Natalia Lodge

Fulham Ladies having won the league already, took on Millwall Lionesses at Dulwich Hamlet FC hoping to continue their 100% record. With no pressure on the Ladies they still managed to perform to a high standard and with good passing and good movement they created a lot of chances.

With Katie Chapman still injured after the League Cup Final, Danish Centre-Back Lene Terp played in her position for the first time and produced a fine display.

As early as the 7th minute Kristy Moore was brought down in the penalty area and Margunn Haugenes stepped up to take the resulting penalty.

The ladies went on to score 3 more goals in the first half, two from Pettersen and a Yankey shot from 35 yards making it 0-4 going into half-time.

Second half Fulham Ladies continued to play well and were even sharper with their finishing with Pettersen scoring her hat-trick on 48 minutes.

Lynn Mork replaced Sanchia Duncan on 55 mins and Ronnie Gibbons replaced Rachel Unitt on the hour mark.

With fresh legs on the field, their contribution was valuable as the players continued to produce numerous chances right to the end.

Margunn Haugenes (66mins 71mins) Lynn Mork (77 mins) Kim Jerray-Silver (81 mins) and two goals from Kristy Moore (83 mins and 86mins) ensured Fulham maintained their record.

Manager Gaute Haugenes said "I think we played very good football today and hopefully this will give us the right confidence with the two big games coming up, Arsenal in the London County Cup on Wednesday and Doncaster Belles in the FA Cup Final. Hopefully we can add another two trophies to our collection. We know we are meeting two very good sides and it won't be easy, to achieve that we need to be focused and work hard these last few weeks.
