CRUES IMPRESS AT SEAVIEW

Crusaders picked up their first points of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership with an impressive 2-1 win at home to title hopefuls Sion Swifts.
 
Amy McGivern gave the hosts - who had lost 2-0 at Linfield on the opening day after a battling performance - an early lead in the third minute to set the tone for the encounter.
 
Emily Wilson doubled the lead for Spike Hill’s side just before the hour mark with a delightful chipped finish and despite Northern Ireland international Caitlin McGuinness netting brilliantly into the top corner for Sion in injury time, the Crues held off a late fightback. 
 
Caitlin and her sister Kirsty were the big threats for Sion throughout - with the score at 1-0, Crues goalkeeper Maddy Harvey-Clifford produced a great save from Caitlin while with twenty minutes remaining, a shot from Kirsty was cleared off the line by Julie Nelson.
 
Yet the Crues hung on for a deserved victory and a significant three points.
