Boroughmuir Thistle welcomed Murieston United to a dry but chilly Meggetland for the first league game of the season.
The visitors ran out comfortable 9-0 winners with goals from Karla Jackman, Katie Barrie (2), Taylor Hogg (3), Stacey Peel, Shannyn Masterson and Haley-Ann Crook chipping in with a penalty.
Boroughmuir got the game underway but it was the visitors who started of like an express train nearly hitting the front with only two minutes gone when Katie Barrie picked up the ball on the left but blasted her shot into the side netting but the warning signs were there.
A minute later Murieston did open the scoring when Jema Gray found Karla Jackman 10 yards out and she fired home to give the visitors the lead and then only 60 seconds later they doubled their advantage when Barrie drove in from the left side of the box and from six yards out calmly slotted home.
Murieston were rampant and they pushed forward again and should have made it three when Haley-Ann Crook found Barrie with a good ball but she fired wide of the right hand post. Murieston then won the first corner of the match and Taylor Hogg played the quick short corner to Shannyn Masterson 20 yards out but her shot was saved comfortably by Erin McLean when it came through a group of players in the box.
Murieston's Masterson latched onto a mistake by Esther Louise Newton Parmiter but she failed to make it count when she shot wide but it was not long before the visitors had the ball in the back of the Boroughmuir net again. A great strike from the right side of the box by Hogg produced number three for the visitors on 10 minutes and it was starting to look ominous for the girls in purple and white of Boroughmuir.
This was even more emphasised when a minute later Barrie got her second of the game and Murieston's fourth when she produced a good individual goal. A positive run into the box saw Barrie fire a low shot to the right of McLean in the home goal from 12 yards out.
Boroughmuir had not played badly but in the first 15 minutes Murieston were quicker to the ball, stronger in the challenge and dictated the play.
The visitors then were given another opportunity to increase their lead when McLean picked up a pass back and a indirect free kick on the left side of the box was awarded 15 yards out. Erin Turner knocked the ball left to Hogg who floated a terrific ball into the top far corner to put this game out of sight with only 18 minutes gone.
Hannah Urquart was working hard for home side down the right and won a corner. Raewyn Murphy played in the corner from the right which was cleared by Turner for the visitors but only as far as Sarah Jenkins but Turner was out again to clear.
Murieston were on the attack again through Barrie but McLean saved well from the forwards powerful strike to tip the ball behind for a corner. Masterson whipped in the corner and indecision in the Boroughmuir box allowed Stacey Peel to blast home from close range on 21 minutes to claim number six for her team.
The home side were finding it difficult to cope with the visitor's constant onslaught and at this stage had everyone back behind the ball.
The girls from down the M8 were awarded a free kick on the left side touchline and Masterson produced a great ball into the far post area where it was met by Kerry McRobb but McLean who was a outfield player stepping in as replacement keeper saved well. The visitor's should have been on the score sheet again through Barrie when she beat the off side trap and powered in on goal, unfortunately she decided to take on the early shot and fired wide when she might have been better driving further in on goal.
Murieston did not have to wait long for the next goal when Masterson scored a brilliant individual goal. Picking the ball up outside the box she drove in on goal and turned the Boroughmuir defenders inside out before releasing a venomous shot into the center of the home goal to put Murieston on seventh heaven on 27 minutes.
McLean was being asked to really go above and beyond in the home goal for some one who was not a keeper but she did well to repel numerous Murieston attack's in the closing minutes of the half. Firstly she reacted well to get down low to save when Barrie fizzed in a ball across goal with Mcrobb bearing down on her ready to tap home any spilt ball.
McLean then did well to come and take a cross ball in from Masterson and could hardly take breath before she showed bravery to come off her line to claim the ball just as Crook was inches away from forcing the ball home.
Boroughmuir although seven goals down never let their heads go down and continued to work hard and Rachel Collin's looked to get forward at every opportunity with Rowan Stuart showing great fight in the midfield chasing down every ball.
The referee brought the first half to an end with a loud shrill of his whistle.

Boroughmuir replaced McLean in the goal with another stand in keeper Sarah McLaren and Murieston got the game restarted after the interval.
Murieston started the second half as they finished the first, on the front foot and Turner played a lovely ball to Barrie but Sian Phillip's chased her down and won a free kick trying to win the ball back and Phillip's showed good defensive qualities again when she won the ball inside her own box, turned and brought the ball out of the danger area.
Boroughmuir looked more composed in the second half but were unlucky to conceded what looked a soft penalty for a hand ball after Hogg played the ball into the box from the right. Crook took responsibility and did not let her team down when she found the right hand corner from the spot on 41 minutes.
The home teams best chance of the game so far came on the 46th minute when McLean brilliantly sprung the off side trap and when Megan Debra Ingles in the Murieston goal decided to come out to try and win the ball, McLean went for the finish from distance but her effort went wide of the right hand post.
The home side were proving a different prospect in the second half with them now competing for the ball and getting stuck in and were having a good wee spell. Stewart showed good skill down the left to cut inside but the ball was cleared but only as far as Jenkins who shot straight at the Ingles in the visitors goal.
McLaren was providing a good barrier in the Boroughmuir goal when she saved superbly to deny Turner increasing the visitors lead, then she did brilliantly to get back to prevent the ball going over the line after a bit of confusion outside the box which saw the ball played in behind her. 
Next it was Chloe Young who was denied by another good stop and then Hogg was next to see the stand in number one produced a fine stop from her low drive.
Boroughmuir were defending well as a team and Ella Browne's produced a good block to clear Barrie's shot then Morag Toellner did well to win the ball from Hogg after Crook played her in from the right side.
The Boroughmuir resilience was eventually broken when Hogg claimed her hat-trick with a fine lob from 18 yards out which looped over McLaren and into the back of the net for number nine on the 63rd minute.
The Edinburgh side kept working hard and kept trying to get forward but the last action of the game came from the visitors when Barrie had a good chance to collect her hat-trick in added on time but she fired wide of the near post to bring the game to an end.
Murieston were always in control of this game and thoroughly deserved their win as there was nothing flattering about the scoreline, but Boroughmuir have to be congratulated for their effort in the second half where they certainly competed with Murieston and gave them a couple of scares.

Star Player
Boroughmuir Thistle
Murieston United
Esther Louise Newton Parmiter - Regardless of the score line she put in a terrific shift in at the back and worked extremely hard all game.
Erin Turner - Stood out in the midfield and created so much for her team but also got stuck into tackles bravely when required and also showed good defensive qualities as well. A great all round performance.
Magic Moment
Boroughmuir Thistle
Murieston United
Erin McLean came closest to getting a goal for the home side when she hit the visitors on the break and ran the length of the opposition half and as the keeper came out she was unlucky to fire just past the post.
Taylor Hogg's hat-trick as she showed her ability to score different types of goals.
