Linfield continued their perfect start in the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership with a 3-0 victory at Derry City on Wednesday night.
Abbie Magee, Rebecca Bassett and captain Kirsty McGuinness were all on target for the Blues, who have won all six league games to date without conceding a goal.
Glentoran moved into second - leapfrogging Sion Swifts on goal difference - following a 4-1 victory over Cliftonville at Solitude.
First half goals from Rachel Rogan and Nadene Caldwell put the East Belfast side in control but Rachel McConnell grabbed one back for the Reds after the break.
However, a double from Kerry Beattie ensured the League Cup finalists remain within five points of leaders Linfield.
