Winchester ladies are closing in on a potential third place finish in South Women’s League Division 3B after a 5-1 win over lowly Hailsham, their third successive victory and a fourth in the past five games.
They are only two points behind Havant, who went down 4-2 to title chasing Old Georgians and are now out of the promotion frame.
Southampton’s three goals in the 3-0 win over Barnes at the Sports Centre all came in the second half, with a Sue Merry deflection breaking the deadlock.
Zoe Stride set up Maddie Larkin to double Southampton’s lead before Stride rounded off the scoring from a penalty stroke.
