Linfield Ladies Swifts made it three wins from three in the Electric Ireland Women's Academy League as they came from behind to record a 4-2 win at Crusaders Strikers U19s.

Trailing at the break to a Leah Wilgaus double, the Blues fightback began ten minutes after the break as Eva Myles found the net in the 55th minute before Mia Moore added a second ten minutes later before Myles bagged her second and the Blues third.

Linfield made sure of the points late on as Sophie Gargan netted in the third minute of injury time.

There was an eight-goal thriller at Solitude as Sion Swifts Ladies U19s came from behind to win 5-3 at Cliftonville Corinthians.

Roise Thompson opened the scoring in the 19th minute for the Reds but goals from Clarah Quigg and Tara Doherty ensured the visitors led at the break.

Three minutes after half-time Thompson equalised and that’s the way the game stayed between four goals flew in across the final 15 minutes.

Cache Crumlish-Hawes netted twice and whilst substitute Tara Reilly pulled a goal back for the Reds, Crumlish-Hawes completed her hat-trick in injury time to seal the points.

Glentoran Women Reserves recorded a notable 11-goal victory at Derry City U19s as Kirsty Cameron netted a hat-trick while Rachel McIntyre, Francesca Costa i Fasssunge and Amy Majury all netted braces as Maeve McConaghey and Megan Neill also netted.
