Ther appears to be no stopping Glasgow City as they continue on their unbeaten run.
Jo Love got the City off to a great start as she put the home side ahead after only 4 minutes. Ciara Barnes found the run of Love and the Scotland midfielder raced through on goal hitting a powerful low drive into the corner beyond Kim Jappy in the Inverness goal. Ten minutes played and it was 2-0 to City. Lisa Evans was brought down in the box, with team mate Love winning the ball back before playing it to Evans who was now back up on her feet and the City striker rifled a low shot into the far corner. Soon after and City confirmed their dominance with a third goal and in usual fashion it was an Emma Mitchell belter as she hit a powerful left foot shot high into the back of the net beyond the despairing dive of Jappy. City had the ball in the back of the net a further two times but the referee blew for offside to deny City a comfortable lead at half time.
Half time 3-0.
Right from the whistle City were on the attack again as Nicky Docherty fired an effort off the underside of the cross bar. A minute later Jappy made a good save from Evans but the Inverness keeper could do nothing to prevent Ciara Barnes from scoring with a left foot shot after a City corner. The home side had another goal disallowed for offside as Julie Melrose had the ball in the back of the net, but the City striker did get her goal as she shot high into the roof of Jappy’s goal on 55 minutes. Lisa Evans made it 6-0 to City, getting her second of the game as she skipped past two defenders before slotting home. Substitute Leanne Ross scored number seven with a well taken drive from the edge of the box. Ciara Barnes got her second if the game and then another substitute, Kat Linder made it 9-0 scoring from close range at the back post. A handball in the box gave City a penalty which Leanne Ross fired into the net with ease before the City and Scotland midfielder got her hat-trick with 6 minutes to go with a shot from just inside the box. Not a bad return for the City player who was only on the field for 30 minutes as a second half replacement for Jo Love.
