CLACHNACUDDIN started their Highlands and Islands League Cup campaign in rampant fashion as they fired 16 past Kirkwall City without reply in the first round clash at Grant Street Park.
Chloe Macleod took just 88 seconds to break the deadlock with the Lilywhites going 6–0 up after 11 minutes.
Goal machine Betty Ross scored a hat trick after just eight minutes of play with Aoibheann Nicholson finding the net and an own goal making it six after 11 minutes on the clock.
Gemma Nutt and captain Michaela Munro both grabbed doubles before the break with Macleod also finding her second before half time.
Kirkwall put in a stubborn defensive effort at the beginning of the second half with Nicky MacDonald eventually finding the first goal after the break just before the hour mark with a close range effort.
Ross scored her fourth goal after being allowed to drive into the box before firing a low effort past goalkeeper Hannah Weir.
Lindsay Calder made it 14–0 with a sensational long range effort from 40 yards with Claire Masterton also finding the net from distance minutes later.
Shannon Fulton completed the rout midway through the second half, with Clach creating a number of chances to extend their lead but were prevented by good saves from the goalkeeper as well as being denied by the woodwork.
Clachnacuddin will travel to Brora Rangers in the quarter finals of the League Cup with the date to be confirmed.
Clach will return to league action on Sunday when they face Buckie Ladies.
