Tasmanian striker Jessie Williams created her own little piece of history at the AFC U14 Girls Festival of Football tournament in Vietnam, courtesy of scoring five goals against Singapore yesterday.

Williams has been a standout in attack for the Westfield U14 Girls team, scoring two goals on the opening day and backing up to play two successive games on the second day.

Having moved to a new format for the final two days of the tournament, Williams was the star as she netted five goals as the young Australian side proved too good for Singapore, who they had earlier beaten 6-0 on Day 2. Alisha Bass, Adriana Jones, Alanna Kennedy and an own goal completed the scoring for Australia.

In the second game of the day, Australia faced a determined Thailand side, keen to avenge the 4-0 defeat on Day 2. Australia didn-t have it there own way, but still managed to come out on top thanks top goals from Annika Clayton and Jordan Evans, while Elizabeth Ralston received a green card for her good sportsmanship.
