It was another action-packed midweek round of games in the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership.
 
An incredible 17 goals flew in across the three matches, with Glentoran Women and Cliftonville Ladies both securing big derby day victories as they continue to pull away in what looks to be a pulsating title race.
 
Sion Swifts Ladies also continued their winning streak with a four-goal victory at Derry City Women and are now a side that nobody will want to face.
 
Here is some of the reaction following the matches.

Megan Moran, Cliftonville 
“It was a very tight first half, even though we had lots of control throughout it.
 
“There was a little bit of tiredness crept in towards the end of the half and to be fair that was down to Crusaders, who fought back and got their goal from it.
 
“We had our half-time team talk that meant we had the high intensity straight from the start and to be able to play our style of football.
 
“It was a great overall team performance and we deserved the point, especially with Marissa Callaghan giving us the lead and then Toni-Leigh Finnegan coming back after injury to score from the spot.” 

Jess Foy, Glentoran 
“Firstly, we are delighted to get the three points - the most important thing is to come away with a win and we got the performance too.
 
“We knew it was important to score early and we did that, in the opening 10 minutes, and that gave us a little bit of confidence to build upon.
 
“It was great to get a few different goal scorers.
 
“We are building something over the past couple of weeks and you can see that in the performances and results.

“It is really tight in the league and every game is a tough one for us.”
