Motherwell made a real statement of intent as they beat Kilmarnock 6-0 in a friendly on Wednesday night.
A double from Kodie Hay, and strikes from Leanne Crichton, Amy Anderson, Claire Adams and Chelsie Watson gave Motherwell their first pre-season victory.
It was a tight affair for the first 10 minutes in the match with Kilmarnock striking the post.
However the breakthrough would come from the claret and amber on 17 minutes.
Lori Gardner showed some excellent work on the left wing before setting up Hay to slot home for her first goal of the evening.
Hay would get her brace just six minutes later. Picking up the ball up from 25 yards out, she blasted a strike past the Kilmarnock keeper for hers and Motherwell’s second goal of the evening.
Assistant manager Crichton would open her account for Motherwell from the penalty spot on 39 minutes.
Captain Gill Inglis ran the length of the park beating a number of defenders before being brought down in the box. Crichton stepped up and slotted home in the bottom right corner.
Motherwell made it four right from the restart, with Gardner again turning provider. She laid off for Anderson, who jinked by one player to smash home for her first goal in the claret and amber.
The dominance continued in the second half.
On 50 minutes, Adams picked up the ball, flicked it up into the air for Crichton to flick back to her, as she hit it sweetly on the volley for number five.
Then, on the hour mark, Watson stood over a free-kick after Adams was caught heavy in the tackle. She went up and over the wall to make it 6-0 and round off a comfortable evening.
