Ellie White fired the hosts into the lead just three minutes into the fixture played at the Safflex Arena, leaving Sunderland trailing at half-time.

The Wearsiders flew out of the traps after the interval with Black Cats captain Keira Ramshaw scoring in the 46th minute to equalise.

Two goals in three minutes from Katie Barker and Grace McCatty saw the lasses pull away before Bridget Galloway scored to put the gloss on a commanding victory and send the Lasses top – with 13 points from five played.
