Sion Swifts Ladies registered their first point of the campaign as they edged out Crusaders Strikers by a single goal at the Melvin Park Arena.

Ciara Grant's goal four minutes from time was enough to win the game for the Strabane-based hosts over an experienced Crues side in a closely-fought encounter.

The Swifts were without captain Kendra McMullan but enjoyed the majority of the possession and opportunities in the opening half. Visiting goalkeeper Maddie Clifford saved efforts from Grant, Tyler Toland and Lauren Brennan for the frustrated hosts.

Chloe McGlade, making her first appearance of the campaign, came off the bench for Sion Swifts in the second half and forced two opportunities.

Grant won the game with a close-range finish in the dying moments as the home side’s pressure paid off - build-up play from Tyler Toland and Claragh Connor eventually finding the striker, who made no mistake inside the area to decide the game.
