Chelsea 6 (Ji 19, Coombs 22,90, Kirby 78,83,88) Millwall Lionesses 0
Fran Kirby netted a quickfire hat-trick to help Chelsea to an emphatic 6-0 FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup win over Millwall Lionesses.
Chelsea dominated from the outset with Ji So-Yun netting after 19 minutes as she stroked the ball into the far right corner after a fabulous interchange with Jodie Brett.
Laura Coombs doubled the lead three minutes later when she took advantage of Millwall keeper Frankie Gibbs' miskick but she spurned the chance to add another when her spot kick sailed wide.
But the Blues were dominant and killed the game off in the second period with Kirby netting an impressive ten minute hat-trick - combining with Gemma Davison on all three occasions to score from inside the box.
Coombs was then on hand to atone for her earlier miss as she bagged Chelsea's sixth from the spot in injury time.
The victory moves Emma Hayes' treble chasing side a step closer towards qualifying for the quarter finals, with one group match left to play, against London Bees on Sunday.
