SION TOPPLE GLENS TO TAKE TOP SPOT

Sion Swifts produced a remarkable comeback from 3-1 down to topple Danske Bank Women's Premiership league leaders Glentoran 4-3 at the Melvin Sports Complex. 
 
The hosts had taken an early lead in the game when Erin McLaughlin converted from Caoimhe Walsh’s ball over the top but then the Glens took charge. 
 
Jess Foy levelled the scores from the penalty spot before the break and then Aimee-Lee Peachey and Caragh Hamilton both netted in the second half to appear to settle the tie. 
 
However, Sion - who lost at Crusaders the previous week - produced a stirring fightback with three goals in the space of seven minutes late on to sensationally win the game. 
 
McLaughlin was the provider for Caitlin McGuinness to spectacularly volley home before Caitlin’s sister Kirsty levelled proceedings with a pinpoint free-kick. 
 
The former Linfield stars combined once more to score the winner, with Kirsty converting from the penalty spot to win the game and send Sion top of the league on goal difference.
