This result puts the Black Cats second in the Women’s National League Northern Premier Division, alongside Huddersfield Town Ladies with 10 points, as per BBC Sport.
Considering the most recent result Sunderland’s men’s team had – a 3-0 loss at the hands of Peterborough United – and the frustration that came with it, many fans were happy to see a dominant scoreline from the ladies.
Their next fixture should be a closer encounter, as they face Huddersfield at home, as per Sunderland’s official website, in a game which could see them go clear at the top of the table.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the result, including posts from impressed Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
Congratulations to you all on a fantastic result!The way this team were treated in not being allocated a place higher up the football league was disgusting… more results like this and you’ll be back in the top division where you belong

Me and the bairn really enjoyed that thank you. Although the margin of victory was fantastic, the graft the lasses all put in impressed me more. #hawaythelasses
