Leeds United Ladies eased through to the next round of the County Cup with a convincing win over Yorkshire Amateur at Thorp Arch.
    
It was the visitors who took an early lead after seven minutes when Fishley drove home from 15 yards. Leeds responded straight away when Emily Cassidy curled in from 25 yards. Leeds then took hold of the game with Shelbey Morris going close on two occasions as did Beth Davies.
    
The Whites eventually took the lead on the 38th minute when Morris prodded home from close range. Morris then created a third, this time for Katie Thompson who fired in from the corner of the penalty area.
   
Thompson then got her second on the stroke of half-time, tapping in Molly Cawthorn's cross.

It was more of the same in the second period as Beth Davies, Katie Thompson and Sophie Stamp all went close for the home side.
With Leeds in the ascendency, The Whites got their fifth when Beth Davies curled in from 20 yards. Rachel Slater then pulled one back for the visitors as she pounced on an error from keeper Hannah Payne.
   
With the scores at 5-2, Leeds' pressure didn't relent as Beth Davies got her second, and United's sixth of the game, as she danced around three Ammers players before firing low into the corner.
   
Substitute Holly Findlay got in on the action, as she went close on a couple of occasions. Katie Thompson then got her hat trick, five minutes from time, tapping in Findlay’s cross.
Showing their killer instinct with minutes to go, defender Faye Boshell then rounded off the scoring, firing in low from 15 yards to seal a 8-2 win, and progression to the next round of the County Cup.
