Sion Swifts secured a statement victory in their pursuit of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership title with a 5-2 victory at Cliftonville.

The Reds had gone into the match in fine form having drawn at Glentoran the previous week and defeated Crusaders 5-1 prior to that, yet Sion were too good on the night.

Donna Kay Henry netted twice for the Strabane-based side with captain Kendra McMullan, Ciara Grant and Kristin Desmond also finding the net.

Megan Moran and Marissa Callaghan were both on target for Cliftonville, who are now seven points off the top three.

Sion however move to within five points of league leaders Linfield - who did not play due to their participation in the Champions League - and still have a game in hand, while they are three off Glentoran.

The Glens bounced back from their draw against Cliftonville last week with a thumping 12-0 victory at home to Comber Rec, who remain rooted to the foot of the table.

Striker Rachel Rogan bagged four goals in the rout with Kelly Baillie also netting twice, as Jessica Davis, Victoria Carleton, Makyla Mulholland, Kerry Beattie, Danielle Maxwell and Olivia Marshall also netted.

The night’s other fixture saw Crusaders edge out Derry City 1-0, thanks to a goal from Amy McGivern.

Linfield lost their opening Champions League tie earlier on Wednesday as they went down 4-0 against Lillestrom of Norway, while they are yet to face PAOK and Anderlecht - champions of Greece and Belgium respectively - in the Brussels tournament.
