DOUBLE FOR ERIN KEEPS TITLE HOPES ALIVE

Sion Swifts and Linfield both kept their slim hopes of winning this season’s Danske Bank Women’s Premiership alive as they cancelled each other out in Wednesday night’s encounter in Strabane. 
 
Erin McLaughlin twice gave Tony McGinley’s side the lead but Linfield - who had won away to both Cliftonville and Crusaders in the past week - hit back each time through Rebecca McKenna and Alison Smyth respectively. 
 
McLaughlin showed great footwork to find space inside the area to open the scoring in the 18th minute but McKenna levelled seven minutes later after scrambling the ball home.
 
McLaughlin’s free-kick restored the Sion lead by Smyth fired home from the edge of the area with 10 minutes remaining to ensure a share of the spoils.
