Glentoran Women remain on top of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership after a remarkable nine-goal victory over Linfield Ladies.
 
Kerry Beattie and Joely Andrews struck early for the Glens before a quickfire Jess Foy double, while Casey Howe was the star of the show with a 17-minute second half hat-trick.
 
The champions added an eighth via an own goal in the 65th minute while substitute Rachel Rogan scored a ninth in injury time to wrap up the stunning victory, with Linfield now defeated in nine of their last 10 games across all competitions.
 
Cliftonville Ladies remain just one point off the pace with two games in hand thanks to an impressive 3-1 victory at third-placed Crusaders Strikers.
 
Kirsty McGuinness opened the scoring for John McGrady’s side and while Amy McGivern equalised for the hosts at half-time, Northern Ireland internationals Marissa Callaghan and Toni-Leigh Finnegan each netted in the second half to secure the points.
 
Sion Swifts ran out four-goal victories over Derry City at the Brandywell as Kerryanne Brown and Hayley O’Donnell each netted before the break, before a second half double from substitute Caoirse Doherty.
