A five-goal haul from Abby Wilson has sparked NSW Pride to their maiden win of Hockey One season, a 5-0 home demolition of Tassie Tigers.
In the two other round three matches of the women's competition, Brisbane Blaze recorded their first win of the campaign with a 4-2 success over Adelaide Fire while Perth Thundersticks overcame Canberra Chill on penalties with the scores locked at 1-1 after regulation time.
At the Sydney Olympic Park Hockey Centre, Wilson went on a scoring spree for the Pride and took just five minutes to break the deadlock and had another moments later.
The Tigers could not prevent the 19-year-old from registering her hat-trick late in the first half before she added two further goals in the final minute of play.
Brisbane handed Adelaide a first loss of the season courtesy of some clinical finished from penalty corners at the State Hockey Centre in South Australia.
Blaze struck first through a Ruby Harris field goal before Ashlea Fey's drag flick found the target to double the margin.
Adelaide's Miki Spano halved the deficit on 33 minutes and had another after halftime but not before Britt Wilkinson (44th) and Layla Eleison (50th) had extended Brisbane's buffer by converting from from penalty corners.
Perth and Canberra could not be separated at Perth Hockey Stadium.
Karri Somerville struck first for the hosts on 21 minutes before Japanese import Shihori Oikawa erased the deficit for the Chill in the third quarter.
Thundersticks goalkeeper Aleisha Power proved the difference in the deciding shootout as she saved all five Canberra attempts while Argentine Agueda Moroni was the only successful penalty take for Perth.
