Two out of two for City
 Women's Football News 13 Aug 2011
 
Glasgow City require one point from their final group match in order to book their place in the knockout stages of the UEFA Women's Champions League. 
 
With six changes to the starting line-up from the side who defeated Spartak Jaffa on Thursday, City took on FC Mosta, the Champions of Malta in their second match and ran out comfortable 8-0 winners.
 
Despite the intense heat, City showed their intent right from the start with Jane Ross getting a shot on goal in the opening seconds, which was well saved by the keeper. With City dominating possession, Lisa Evans had a good run into the box, but shot straight at the keeper and a few minutes later City were denied a loud appeal for a penalty after Mosta appeared to handball in the penalty area.
 
Mosta goalkeeper Sharon Constantino pulled off a fine save to deny a wide shot from distance from Danica Dalziel and from the resultant corner, Rachel Corsie had the ball in the back of the net, but the referee blew for the corner to be re-taken after she deemed the ball to have been out of play first. Lisa Evans was next to have an effort on goal as City bombarded the Mosta defence, but her shot sailed wide.
 
City eventually took the lead when Jane Ross dribbled her way into the box before firing past the keeper to score her first goal of this year's Champions League campaign. City then went 2-0 up after the half hour mark when Emma Mitchell fired a great left foot shot home from the edge of the box after a City corner.
 
Danica Dalziel bulleted home a header from another City corner to make it three to the Scottish Champions, at the same time giving the defender her first ever Champions League goal in her first ever Champions League start. City made it 4-0 on 42 minutes as Leanne Ross converted from the penalty spot after the Mosta defence were found guilty of handball inside the area.
 
Ross could have doubled her tally soon after, but shot inches wide after a fine City move involving Danica Dalziel and Emma Woolley.
 
Within two minutes of the restart, Jane Ross got her second of the match and her side's fifth with a left foot shot from the edge of the box into the bottom corner. Less than five minutes later, Leanne Ross rounded the goalkeeper and played in Emma Woolley who then scored arguably the easiest strike of her career, to put City six up and also give the midfielder her first ever Champions League goal.
 
Danica Dalziel then had another fine shot from distance this time coming back off the upright, before Lisa Evans added the seventh with one of the best goals of the game. Dribbling past the Mosta defence, Evans played a neat one-two with Leanne Ross before firing low into the bottom corner of the net.
 
Captain Rachel Corsie scored number eight for City, timing her run brilliantly to receive a ball into the box from Jane Ross after a City corner. Corsie should have doubled her tally with the last kick off the ball but shot over from inside the six yard area after tenacious play from Jane Ross.
 
Glasgow City: Lee Alexander (sub Laura Williamson 66mins), Danica Dalziel, Emma Mitchell (sub Katharina Lindner 77mins), Emma Woolley, Rachel Corsie, Leanne Ross (sub Emma Fernon 76mins), Clare Gemmell, Jill Paterson, Lisa Evans, Jane Ross, Ciara Barnes. Subs not used: Claire Johnstone, Eilish McSorley, Joanne Love, Christie Murray.
