This was as comprehensive a victory as they come, especially against a quality side like Margate, who looked dangerous even after Bay had put the game to bed, writes Peter Guise.

But there was a purpose to this Bay performance, evident from the first whistle. The champions raced into an early lead when skipper Kate Foster crafted a skillful solo opener then Lauren Harris tapped home for the second. Sophie Gifford made it three from an inch perfect corner and Bay were home. Just before the break, Bay conceded a harsh penalty but Sarah Cooper pulled off a fine save to preserve her clean sheet record. Barton, Harris and Foster added three more in the second period and then the celebrations began. Two more games to go, but the league title and promotion is secure, now the target will be the unbeaten record and the title of meanest defence in the league.
