Southampton FC Women's 100 per cent league record remains in tact after a comprehensive 5-0 win away to Warsash Wasps over the weekend.

Saints were in front inside seven minutes, as Emma Whitlock's effort was pounced on by Georgie Freeland, whose scoring prowess continues as she found the bottom corner for the opener.

Caitlin Collighan doubled the visitors' advantage in the 17th minute, before further first-half strikes from Emily Wernham and Ellie Chaffe gave Saints a commanding four-goal lead entering the break.

Two minutes after the restart, Emma Godden had won the chance for a fifth from the penalty spot, but unluckily rattled her effort off the crossbar.

Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side continued to dominate, though, and rounded off their scoring in the 75th minute, when Shelly Provan's superb solo run resulted in a one on one opportunity with the Warsash goalkeeper, with the Saints full-back keeping a cool head and slotting home for a fifth of the afternoon.

The win means Saints maintain top spot in the Southern Region Women's Football League, but only by virtue of goal difference, as Oxford City also have a full complement of 21 points, after seven games played.
