Goals from Charlotte Costello, Phoebe Graham and Rachel Kelly secured a sixth straight league win for Chester FC Women with a 3-0 triumph over Vauxhall Motors at Rivacre Park.
The Blues produced a solid defensive performance to keep a rare clean sheet, much to the delight of manager Richard Smith.
"The performance across the park from everyone in blue and white was tremendous," said Smith.
"We had to make a few tactical changes early on to combat how they had set up but from then on I feel there was only one team looking likely to take the win.
"We always know we are a goal threat but sometimes defensively we can let ourselves down but our defence were superb and throughly deserved their clean sheet.
"Chloe Jordan in goal was quick off her line and commanding, the two centre backs Becky O'Brien and Lizzy Day both read the game in a way beyond their years, but Naomi Robertson at right back was simply superb and completely marked Vauxhall's Rachel Tebb, who we identified as the danger player, out of the game."
Chester made an edgy start and seemed to be rushing their play and lacking the composure of previous matches, allowing Vauxhall to find a footing in the game.
But after 15 minutes the Blues started to find their stride and began to cause the home team problems. Good link up play between Carla Roddy and captain Costello saw a decent cross being sent into the Vauxhall box but no blue shirt could connect.
The first goal came on 33 minutes with Kelly feeding an inch perfect ball through the Motors defence and Costello beat the offside trap to brush the ball low past the keeper.
Vauxhall attempted to get back on level terms with a few clever balls over the top of the Chester back four but all were dealt with well by either the young yet impressive centre back pairing of Day and O'Brien or the quick to respond goalkeeper Jordan.
Chester doubled their lead in the 39th minute, again with a fantastic pass from Kelly wide from the left beating the Vauxhall defenders and Graham latching on to it and finishing well.
Within six minutes of the restart, Chester added their third and final goal, a poor back pass from the Vauxhall left-back left the goalkeeper too much to do and Kelly took a gamble, intercepted the ball and rolled it in to an empty net.
Some smart link up play down the visitors left between Steph Oscroft and Kelly, putting in a cross which found Graham but her effort went millimetres wide.
Vauxhall did have a chance to pull one back late on in the game when a Chester corner was cleared and Motors went through one-on-one with Jordan but the Chester keeper was quick off her line and pulled off a tremendous save.
Robertson was named a deserved player of the match for an outstanding defensive display with special praise to Kelly who seemed to have the Midas touch and played with plenty of confidence.
