Fabienne Humm and Ramona Bachmann both had second-half hat tricks as Switzerland earned its first women’s World Cup victory with a 10-1 victory over Ecuador on Friday at Vancouver, British Columbia.

Humm’s three goals came within 6 minutes early in the second half, the first coming on a powerful strike from outside the penalty box in the 47th minute to put Switzerland up 3-0. Bachmann capped her scoring binge in the 81st minute for Switzerland’s 10th goal.

Eseosa Aigbogun and Martina Moser added goals for Switzerland, which opened with a 1-0 defeat to defending champion Japan on Monday.

Angie Ponce scored Ecuador’s first World Cup goal on a penalty kick in the 64th minute.

Switzerland (1-1) faces Cameroon in its final group stage match on Tuesday, while Ecuador (0-2) takes on Japan.
