The Danske Bank Women’s Premiership drew to a close on Wednesday night with a remarkable 20 goals flying in across the three matches.

Glentoran’s title party began with another convincing victory – their ninth in a row in the top-flight – as they saw off Derry City 9-1.

Lauren Wade was top scorer on the night as she bagged four goals in total and remarkably she scored twice within the space of a minute twice, netting in the 22nd, 23rd, 45th and 46th minutes.

Caragh Hamilton had opened the scoring for the Glens in the 14th minute and she added another 20 minutes later, while Nadene Caldwell also netted in the first half.

Danielle Maxwell added an eighth ten minutes from time before Caroline Gallagher pulled a consolation goal back for the Candystripes. Cora Morgan completed the scoring right at the end.

Cliftonville also saw off their campaign in style as they hit Sion Swifts for six in an entertaining 6-2 win at Solitude.
Kirsty McGuinness and Fionnula Morgan both bagged braces for John McGrady’s side after Louise McDaniel opened the scoring, with Caitlin McGuinness also on target.

Erin McLaughlin and Caoirse Doherty both found the net for Sion, who finish the campaign in fourth spot.
Linfield finished the campaign with a 2-1 victory over Crusaders at New Midgely Park.

The Blues raced into an early two-goal lead thanks to a Rebecca Bassett strike and Victoria Carleton penalty, before Danielle McDowell pulled a goal back for the Crues eight minutes after half-time.
