Cliftonville and Glentoran set pace

The two teams who contested the Danske Bank NI Women’s Premiership title last season are the top two this time, after only the second round of matches.

Cliftonville Ladies sit on top following their 6-0 victory over Derry City, Danielle Maxwell and Toni-Leigh Finnegan putting them two ahead early on before Marissa Callaghan and Caitlin McGuinness each netted twice.

Glentoran are also on six points; they won 3-1 away to Mid Ulster Ladies  on Monday evening. Rachel Rogan, Casey Howe and Jessica Foy, from the penalty spot, put the Glens three ahead at half time, with Rachael Rodgers neting a consolation for the home side after the break.

Crusaders Strikers and Linfield both won their opening fixtures and stay unbeaten after their meeting finished in a 1-1 draw. Rebecca Bassett gave Linfield the lead shortly before half time, and they remained in front until the Crues earned themselves a share of the spoils when Julie Nelson equalised, nine minutes from time.

Sion Swifts are off the mark, thanks to a 5-1 victory away to Lisburn Ladies. An unfortunate own goal by Claire Rooney put Sion in front and they added goals in quick succession from Naomi Donnan, Caoirse Doherty and Cora Chambers. After the break, Chambers completed her double before Lisburn grabbed a late consolation goal through Stacey Murdough.
