CREWE Vagrants blasted into the third-round draw of the FA Women's Cup with a masterful display at North Manchester's Hopwood Ladies.
Despite being without three of their regular defenders, the South Cheshire outfit were hoping to keep their second consecutive clean sheet and extend a three-match unbeaten run.
From the kick-off, the home team were quickest out of the blocks and exerted some early pressure on the Crewe goal, but the makeshift defence held firm.
With that solid foundation, the visitors were soon constructing chances of their own, and took the lead when Jo Elliott played a killer ball which was met by flying winger Paula Lambert, whose first-time effort flew home.
The advantage was doubled shortly before the break when last season's top scorer Brown-Wealls burst into the area to fire home an unstoppable shot.
Vagrants took control of possession after the restart, pressing and probing for an opening which could put the game to rest.
And it came when Plummer found an unmarked Ashioti, whose spectacular 25-yard piledriver found the top left-hand corner for Vagrants' third.
Ashioti doubled her personal tally after a mix-up in the Hopwood defence, and as the home team wilted, their keeper Jodie Warburton was left to perform heroics to keep the scoreline respectable.
But it was the Vagrants who would have the final word.
Tracy Sloane slipped an inch-perfect ball into the path of her hard-working strike partner Szymura, who drew the keeper and planted the ball low in the bottom corner for a final score of 5-0 and a place in the third round to be played on December 7. Vagrants are next in action on Sunday when they entertain Stafford Rangers at the Vagrants Sports Club, 2pm kick-off.
