Glentoran Women powered through to the League Cup semi-final courtesy of a 12-goal thrashing of Portadown Ladies at Ashfield Boys School.
The Glens started with a goal from Demi Vance on eight minutes and that set the tone for the rest of the match. Aoife Lennon doubled the lead in the 11th minute before Vance made it 3-0 on 17 minutes with a long range strike from a tight angle inside the area after a lovely exchange with Ali McMaster.
Courtney Adamson put the ball into her own net on 22 minutes to extend Glentoran's advantage, as did Nichole Duffy six minutes after that.
After the break the scoring continued, Lennon got on the scoresheet again on 47 minutes, with Vance adding to her tally soon after finishing off a flowing move involving Sarah Gamble.
Vance scored her fourth of the evening in the 55th minute to make it 8-0 before, on 63 minutes, Ali McMaster knocked home a ninth.
Playing with confidence, Glentoran found the net regularly with Rachel Rogan grabbing a double before Danielle Maxwell completed the scoring with a couple of minutes remaining.
