Cliftonville go two points ahead

Cliftonville Ladies have opened up a lead of two points at the top of the Danske Bank NI Women’s Premiership following an 8-0 victory against Mid Ulster Ladies at Solitude.

Seven different players got on the scoresheet, Marissa Callaghan opening the scoring after five minutes, before Louise McDaniel bagged a brace and further goals came from Toni-Leigh Finnegan, Caitlin McGuinness, Megan Moran, Abbie Magee and Kelsie Burrows.

Second placed Glentoran maintained their unbeaten record but were held to a 1-1 draw by Sion Swifts, who stay five points behind them. Both goals came in a six minute spell during the first half, Sion taking the lead through 18-year-old striker Cora Chambers and Chloe McCarron equalising shortly afterwards.

Three goals in the final eleven minutes saw Linfield come from behind to win 3-1 away to Derry City and go level on points with third placed Sion. Tara O’Connor put the Candystripes ahead from the penalty spot, midway through the first half, and they held on to their lead until substitute Emily Reid equalised in the 79th minute. Rhyleigh Marks then put Linfield ahead for the first time and Ebony Leckey wrapped up the points with the third goal in injury time.

Crusaders Strikers also returned to winning ways with a 5-2 success against Lisburn Ladies. Crusaders raced into a two-goal lead inside the opening sixteen minutes, courtesy of a brace from Emily Wilson, and Beth Chalmers made it three on the stroke of half time. Lisburn fought back after the break with Abbie Burnett and Sara Stevenson reducing the arrears, but late goals from Darcy Boyle and Faith Johnston secured the three points for Crusaders.
