Pompey Women enjoyed a successful return to league action with an 11-0 rout of Hounslow at Rectory Meadow.

Dani Lane (pictured), Sammy Quayle and Shannon Albuery all bagged hat-tricks, with the other goals coming from Rosie McDonnell and Ava Rowbotham.

Jay Sadler made five changes from the side that were beaten in the League Cup by Chichester & Selsey a fortnight ago.

Hannah Haughton returned between the sticks, while Danielle Rowe, Evie Gane, Freya Jones and Albuery also started.

There were just two minutes on the clock when LANE volleyed home a Tamsin de Bunsen cross to open her Blues account.

And the lead was doubled just moments later, with another de Bunsen delivery this time converted by QUAYLE.

McDONNELL soon got in on the action, reacting quickest when a shot from Jones – making her first senior start – was parried away.

There was a treble of assists from de Bunsen midway through the first half, with the forward slotting a pass through for LANE to finish from a tight angle.

And she then almost got on the scoresheet herself after meeting Gane’s cross, only to be denied by the keeper.

Instead it was ROWBOTHAM who added the fifth goal when McDonnell surged forward and fizzed the ball into the box.

ALBUERY then got her first of the afternoon just before the break, having swapped passes with de Bunsen.

Half Time: Hounslow 0 Pompey 6

Pompey refused to take their foot off the pedal when the action restarted and quickly extended their advantage further.

Albuery was alert to steal possession and unselfishly square the ball for QUAYLE to slot calmly past the keeper.

And the contest had barely kicked-off again when another goal arrived, with ALBUERY lifting the ball home.

LANE then added her third of the game, collecting a pass from Rowbotham and unleashing a 25-yard rocket into the net.

But there was still time for another couple of players to stake their claim for the match ball, with ALBUERY making the most of yet another de Bunsen assist.

And de Bunsen was at it again on 76 minutes by whipping in a fine corner that QUAYLE rose to meet and head home.

The job was now complete and Hounslow were able to see out the closing stages without conceding any more goals.
