Crusaders Strikers ran out emphatic seven-goal victors at Cliftonville in the North Belfast derby on a night when striker Emily Wilson netted a remarkable four goals.
Claire Rooney’s own goal opened the scoring - coming via a Julie Nelson free-kick - for the Strikers before Amy McGivern’s towering header from a corner doubled the score before the break.
Emily Wilson netted twice in the second half for Spike Hill’s Crusaders with the home side’s Fionnula Morgan sent-off in between those strikes, due to an off-the-ball incident - the third successive home game when Cliftonville have finished with 10 players.
The Crues then extended their lead to five as experienced defender and captain Nelson scored directly from a free-kick.
Wilson then netted twice more in the closing stages to complete her quartet of goals and wrap up an impressive derby triumph.
