In first-half added time, a corner from Zelem picked out Millie Turner and she headed home.
Jess Sigsworth converted from close range in the 52nd minute to make it 3-0.
Galton scored her second goal of the game with a run down the left and superb strike into the right-hand corner which gave Bristol City goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley no chance.
Bristol City got one back in the 73rd minute when Ebony Salmon scored a rebound, slotting the ball home from outside of the area with United goalkeeper Mary Earps out of position.
Heath made it 5-1, lobbing the keeper with a first-time shot from 25 yards, and then scored her second in the 83rd minute as she showed great feet to beat a defender and then slot home to complete the rout.
