Rovers Ladies progressed through to the semi-finals of the Lancs Cup with a 5-0 win over CMB Sports Club on Sunday.

Gemma Donnelly's side took their winning run to eight matches as five different goalscorers found the back of the net.

It took just six minutes for the Rovers Ladies to open the scoring by way of a first senior goal for Georgia Stevens who applied a fine finish when one on one.

However despite the early goal, it wasn't until the second half that the Rovers turned their possession further into goals.

Alex Taylor grabbed her second in successive matches just past the hour mark, before Ellie Cook made it 3-0 when she fired home from a corner kick.

Ella Toone then marked her return from international duty to get amongst the goals, before Natasha Fenton wrapped up the match three minutes from time with a wonderful 30-yard finish.

The reward for Gemma Donnelly's side is a semi-final match up against Morecambe. Rovers will travel to face the Shrimpers on Sunday 13th November.

ROVERS: Hill, Bickett, Taylor, Cook, Pearson, McDonald, Stevens, Montgomery, Fenton, Dukes, Toone.

Subs: Maher, Whitham, Taylor, Adams.
