The visitors that got off to a flying start, making their early possession count with a goal on eight minutes when Chloe McGlade scored.
Crusaders struggled to get going and were second to every ball especially in midfield. The travelling team doubled their lead on the 22nd minute, a long ball evading the Crusaders defence, and Geneva Decker finished well.
Crusaders had a couple of chances to pull a goal back, Niamh Barr in the Sion goal saving well from a Clare Carson effort, and Amy McGivern was unlucky not to find the net from the resulting corner.
Sion grabbed their third, the Crues 'keeper initially making a good save with the ball breaking to the Amy Carr who made no mistake from close range.
Sion scored their fourth of the evening nine minutes into the second half, a massive deflection on the Sion shot from Zoe McGlynn taking it away from the Crusaders keeper.
Substitute Alex Ogle came closest for the home team in the second half, her excellent effort looked like it was destined for the top corner but it crept slightly over the crossbar.
