Milton Keynes Dons Ladies earned their first victory since the opening game of the season with a 5-0 mauling of Brentwood
John Dyer’s side didn't seem like a side that hadn't won in five games and the result saw them move up into seventh place in the South East Combination League table.
The Dons traveled to Essex with a depleted squad due to injury but were able to welcome Tammy Scrivens back into the defence.
The Ladies made a strong start with Heather McDonnell controlling proceedings through the middle while Bryony Levitt and Charlotte Wright causing the Brentwood defence problems down the flanks.
It was only a matter of time before the Ladies, who have only scored five goals in their past five encounters, opened the scoring and they did just that through Christie Turner who powered a header into the far post from a corner.
It was two minutes later in almost the exact same fashion although this time it was Scrivens who got her name on the scoresheet, although she later had to be substituted due to a back injury.
After taking a comfortable 2-0 lead into half-time, the Ladies started the second half eager to pick up where they left off and later extended their lead thanks to an unstoppable right-footed drive from Bryony Levitt which nestled in the top corner from 25-yards out.
Lauren Goodier (pictured) was the next to score for the visitors with a delicate chip from outside the penalty area before Leah Cudone wrapped up proceedings with a tap in to make it 5-0.
It could have been six late on but the impressive Emily Mann’s close finish was disallowed for offside but the team were still delighted to return to Milton Keynes with that long awaited victory.
