Milligan made it 3-0 when she was played through by Bailie and fired hard and low past Courtney Adamson in the Portadown goal who was well worked throughout the night.
The goals where coming from all areas of the pitch for Glentoran. Bailie was next to find the net when Demi Vance's effort was only parried into her path to score from close range.
Nadene Caldwell was next to score shortly before half time with a header from a cross delivered from the left.
Milligan completed her hat-trick moments later when she picked up possession on the half way line and beat all in her path to put Glentoran 6-0 up at the break.
After the interval the Glens picked up where they left off with Milligan scoring her fourth not long after the hour mark.
Ali McMaster was next to trouble the scoresheet when she fired in the bottom left when the Portadown defence didn't clear with substitute Samantha Kelly following up soon after with a rifled 12-yard finish into the roof of the net.
Caldwell then made it a perfect 10-0 when her thunderbolt effort flew into the top right corner from the edge of the area in the 80th minute, while Jess Foy completed the scoring with a classy finish towards the end after being played clear by Vance.
