Northern Ireland secured their first competitive win since 2017 by trouncing the Faroe Islands 6-0 in their European Championship qualifier in Torshavn.
Rachel Furness, Simone Magill, Lauren Wade and Kirsty McGuinness goals made it 4-0 at half-time, with Wade and Magill netting again after the break.
NI's first win of the campaign sees them move up to third spot in Group C with five points from five matches.
Kenny Shiels' side still have three qualifiers to play this year.
Having drawn two of their first four fixtures - against Wales home and away - they probably require wins from each of their remaining three matches to have a chance of competing in the Women's Euro 2020 finals, which will be staged in England.
Northern Ireland's next game is away to Belarus on 27 October, followed by a home match against the same opposition on 27 November and the return game against the Faroes on 1 December.
Former world champions Norway lead Northern Ireland's group on 12 points from four matches, which included two comfortable wins over NI.
Wales are four points adrift, three points ahead of Northern Ireland, but still have to play the pacesetting Norwegians twice.
The nine group winners, plus three runners-up with the best records, will automatically qualify, while the other six runners-up will play off for the remaining berths in the 16-team finals.
Goal-fest for free-scoring NI
Shiels went into the game without six regular squad members, including captain Marissa Callaghan, but his side immediately assumed control of proceedings in a one-sided affair.
Rachel Furness struck the woodwork with a 25-yard free-kick in the 12th minute but the Liverpool midfielder found the target seven minutes later with a left-foot drive into the bottom corner.
Within five minutes, it was 2-0 as Everton's Magill followed up to fire home after Wade's shot came back off the post.
The goals continued to flow when Glasgow City forward Wade cut in from the right wing in the 27th minute and drilled a beautiful left-foot finish into the corner.
McGuinness marked her recall to the NI squad for the first time since 2018 by adding the fourth seven minutes before half-time.
Wade netted her second of the match 11 minutes into the second half and Magill completed the scoring with a 90th-minute header.
The Faroes have now conceded 31 goals in losing their first four qualifiers, failing to score in any of those games.
The next matches in the group will be played on Tuesday, with the Faroe Islands hosting Belarus and Norway at home to Wales.
What they said
Lauren Wade: "We were all glad to get back playing and our only aim was to get a win - the first of the four wins we are looking for.
"It was nice to get on the scoresheet but it was a really good team performance."
Simone Magill: "We spoke a lot about this game and waited a long time for it. The most important thing was getting the win.
"We wanted to be ruthless and keep working and fighting to the end and get as many goals as possible.
"That performance was massive for us - we have big games coming up and now we have momentum going into the Belarus game."
