Glentoran bounced back from their draw against Cliftonville last week with a thumping victory at home to Comber Rec., who remain rooted to the foot of the table.
Striker Rachel Rogan bagged four goals in the rout with Kelly Baillie also netting twice, as Jessica Davis, Victoria Carleton, Makyla Mulholland, Kerry Beattie, Danielle Maxwell and Olivia Marshall also netted.
The hosts were missing six regular players but they delivered the big victory they knew they needed to keep the pressure on league leaders Linfield, who did not play this week due to their participatin in the Champions League in Belgium.
Comber's task on the night was always going to be an uphill struggle and this was magnified when their central defender Eimhear Oprey was sent-off for handball on the lines in the 29th minute.
The Glens netted four goals in the final ten minutes to add gloss to their scoreline and maintain the title pressure.
