Hopkinson was again on target in the latter stages of the first half to cap what was a rousing display from Hannah Scotney's side.
Ely were content to take a more measured approach to the game in the second-half but their attack proved no less potent as they forged a number of strong opportunities.
On the 15 minute mark Bond was again on target, deflecting home at the far post after good work wide on the right. The rout was completed late on by Hopkinson who was doubtlessly rewarded for her hat-trick goal with the dubious honour of purchasing the post-match jug.
The win saw Scotney's side move safely into third place, with a final tally of 42 points.
