  • Match Report: Wigan Athletic Ladies 6-0 Blackpool Ladies.
  • Impressive result and performance from the club's first team.
  • Hornby, Ainscow, Threlkeld, Vella (x2) and Lysons scored.

Latics started the game well and applied some good pressure on their opponents early on, making the breakthrough on 13 minutes when Megan Hornby slotted home inside the box.

The lead was doubled soon after as Hornby raced down the wing and crossed for Louise Ainscow to bundle the ball home.

The home side continued to dominate after the break and scored a third through Ellie Threlkeld who struck the ball home from the edge of the box after being played through by Hornby.

A fourth soon followed when the ball was fired home from a goalmouth scramble in the six-yard box by Grace Vella before Emma Lysons headed a fifth from the right wing.

Vella scored her second from the penalty spot late on and the advantage could have been extended further in the final moments but Latics were denied.
