Glentoran leapfrogged fierce Belfast rivals Linfield to the top of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership with a 1-0 victory at New Midgley Park on Wednesday night.

Ali McMaster’s first half strike was the difference between the sides in south Belfast - she volleyed home Vicky Carleton’s cross.

It is the first league defeat of the season for current champions Linfield and they have now slipped behind the Glens at the top due to the east Belfast side’s 10-goal superior goal difference.









There was another massive clash at the bottom of the table with Derry City recording their first victory of the season as they edged out Comber Rec 2-1 at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

Kate Patton and Shannon Dunne were on target for the Candystripes with a Debbie Ferguson effort for the visitors sandwiched in-between.

Derry have now pulled three points clear of Comber at the foot of the table, with Ferguson’s strike the first league goal of the season for Winky Kerr’s visitors.

The scheduled clash between Cliftonville and Sion Swifts was postponed with a future date still to be confirmed, while Crusaders sat out this week’s action.
