Oxford United Women bounced back from their first defeat of the season with a 5-1 win over MK Dons at Court Place Farm last night in the Women’s National League.
Three goals in the first seven minutes set the tone for the U’s and they never looked back.
United opened the scoring after just two minutes thanks to a rocket from new signing Beth Lumsden. Three minutes later the lead was doubled through winger Daisy McLachlan who headed home from a corner.
It was then the captain’s turn to get in on the act, Lauren Haynes slotting beyond the MK keeper to cap off a dream start by making it 3-0 inside 7 frantic minutes.
United didn’t add further to their tally until the opening minutes of the second half when Lumsden turned brilliantly before finishing for her second goal of the night.
MK did grab a consolation goal following a scramble in the area, before substitute Carly Johns completed the scoring from the penalty spot with just over twenty minutes remaining.
A big win for Liam Gilbert’s side who will now look ahead to a trip to Portsmouth on Sunday.
