Manchester City Women scored six unanswered second-half goals to demolish Brighton Women 6-0 and secure a third straight WSL victory.
Brighton were guilty of opening their own floodgates at the People’s Pension Stadium, with Victoria Williams putting through her own net three minutes into the second half, before Lauren Hemp brilliantly chipped in City’s second two minutes later.
Georgia Stanway struck in the next minute to take City’s tally to three, and a fourth soon followed when Georgia Coombes punished a defensive mix-up.
Hayley Raso and Vicky Losada added further gloss to City’s victory, which lifted Gareth Taylor’s side above Brighton into fifth place in the Women’s Super League.
