Arsenal Ladies hit Doncaster Belles for five at the Keepmoat Stadium on Thursday night.
Dan Carter opened the scoring in the 12th minute when she poked home from close range, sending the Gunners in with a 1-0 lead at the break.
Natalia Pablos Sanchon proved to be a super sub for Pedro Martinez Losa, coming off of the bench and finding the net within just three minutes.
She then doubled her tally for the evening, firing past Nicola Hobbs to take the score to 3-0.
Carter then added the match’s fourth goal with a smart finish, before Kelly Smith’s impudent lob from 30 yards wrapped up the scoring.
SETTING THE SCENE
Leah Williamson made her return from injury and was handed a starting berth at centre back.
She was partnered by Dominique Janssen, with fellow Dutch internationals Sari van Veenendaal and Danielle van de Donk also in the starting XI.
Carter was chosen to lead the line, with Chloe Kelly - making her first start since her loan spell at Everton ended - and Katie McCabe for support.
Alex Scott captained the side and lined up in the right-back position.
Arsenal set the tone for their display early on, when some fast-paced attacking football saw Carter’s attempt cleared off the line after just three minutes.
Carter made sure the ball found its way over the line in the 12th minute, hooking home at the back post to open the scoring at the Keepmoat Stadium.
McCabe then tried her luck, bringing down a cross from Emma Mitchell only to see Hobbs equal to her effort.
Mitchell then went for goal herself, but Hobbs was alert once again, scrambling the ball off the line at the last second.
After a first half that sprung into life almost immediately, the second half was much more of a slow burner to begin with.
Arsenal eventually doubled their lead when Natalia, having emerged from the substitutes’ bench, rounded off a fine team move to find the net.
The Spaniard then added a third goal to the scoreline when she latched onto a Jordan Nobbs through ball before firing past Hobbs.
But Carter was not about to let Natalia steal the show, picking up the ball in the area and finding space before rifling past the Doncaster goalkeeper.
The scoring was completed in stunning fashion in added time, with Smith picking up the ball at least 25 yards out and sending an audacious lob over the head of Hobbs and into the goal.
