Glentoran remain top of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership after securing a 2-0 victory at Crusaders Strikers on Wednesday evening. 

The Glens made it six league wins in a row thanks to second half goals from Kerry Beattie and Joely Andrews, to keep them ahead of Cliftonville on goal difference and better head-to-head record - which could ultimately decide the destination of the league title. 

The Reds remain second despite Caitlin McGuinness netting a remarkable five goals in an 9-0 win over basement side Derry City, with her sister Kirsty bagging a hat-trick. 

Caitlin had completed her treble by half-time alongside goals from Marissa Callaghan and a goal from Kirsty, while both the McGuinness sisters scored two goals apiece after the break. 

Elsewhere, Sion Swifts came from two goals down in the second half to secure a stunning 4-3 comeback victory at Linfield. 

Five of the game’s seven goals came in the second half after Aimee Neal had cancelled out Rebecca Bassett’s opener for the Blues just before half-time. 

Katie Dickson’s double had appeared to put the hosts in the driving seat but two goals from Cora Chambers levelled the score before Caoirse Doherty scored the late winner for Tony McGinley's side.
