SION STAY TOP AFTER TEN GOAL SOLITUDE THRILLER

Sion won a pulsating end-to-end encounter at Solitude against Cliftonville which ended in a scarcely believable 6-4 win for the visitors. 
 
Star forward Kirsty McGuinness was once again the star for Sion - having netted in Northern Ireland’s win at Faroe Islands last week - as she grabbed a hat-trick. 
 
Erin McLaughlin, Kerry Brown and Leontia McVarnock were also on the scoresheet for Tony McGinley’s side, who were made to sweat by a Cliftonville team with plenty of attacking threat of their own. 
 
Claire Rooney scored the first for the hosts and despite the Reds adding another before the break through Kerry Taggart, substitute Megan Moran was dismissed in the second half. 
 
However, despite being 5-2 down at the time they kept battling; Marissa Callaghan netted twice - including a spot kick - and created more opportunities but fell to a 6-4 loss.
