HELEN Ogle scored a brace as Basingstoke Town Ladies beat visiting St Nicholas 2-0 in the Women's Premier League Division One South West.

The home side started well and on 15 minutes, Lindsey Beverley had a shot from outside the area which went just over the bar.

Soon after, Town's Erin Davis-Donne produced an outstanding save from a one-on-one.

On the 23 minute mark, St Nicholas struck the bar from a shot from the edge of the area.

The home side then opened the scoring five minutes later, as pressure from the Basingstoke strikers, saw Ogle intercept the ball from an angle and shoot past the goalkeeper at her near post.

Beverley had another strike from the edge of the box which was saved and then Davis-Donne made a good save as it remained 1-0 at the break.

After the interval, some St Nicholas pressure saw them header the ball over the bar from a corner.

Just after the hour mark, a Beverley corner saw Ogle head narrowly wide.

Then three minutes from time, Ogle held the ball up on the wing, Kelly Rutledge made an overlapping run, took on the defender to cut the ball back for Ogle to volley into the bottom corner.

Manager Rob Quilter said: "It was a solid performance, we had to withstand some pressure at times and owe a good part to our goalkeeper Erin Davis-Donne for keeping our lead. But we always looked threatening going forwards and could have scored several more."
