Ucheibe Christy is happy to celebrate a massive victory with SL Benfica as they started the new year by demolishing Torreense during their Campeonato Nacional, Women game on Sunday.

The Super Falcons star played a vital role to help the Filipa Patão side secure a 6-0 away win over Torreense at the Parque Desportivo Maximino Franco Dos Santos stadium.

Ana Rita Seiça opened scoring for the visitors just six minutes into game. Francisca Nazareth then doubled the lead at the stroke of halftime.

61 minutes into the game, Jessica Silva made it 3-0 for the visiting team before grabbing her brace seven minutes later to make it 4-0.

To think its game over, Francisca Nazareth also doubled her tally of the game in 74th minute before Cloé Lacasse completed the rout 13 minutes later to seal the win and all three points.

Its a big win for SL Benfica, who are yet to lose a game against Torreense in their last six matches and an indefatigable display from Ucheibe who was bouncing in the midfield for Benfica.

The 22-year-old has managed to cement her place in that team now after strings of impressive displays.

By winning, SL Benfica maintain their spot at the top of the 1a Divisão Women league with 30 points from 10 games while Torreense are ranked 8th with just 10 points.

Ucheibe and her teammates will be looking to continue their winning momentum when they visit Valadares for their Taça da Liga Feminina semi-final clash at the Sports Complex De Valadares on Wednesday.

SL Benfica already hav a huge lead on the overall score after a 5-0 home win during the first leg.
