McGIVERN WINNER GIVES CRUES THE SEAVIEW EDGE

Crusaders Strikers secured a notable win at home to Linfield Ladies thanks to Amy McGivern’s strike just before the half-hour mark. 
 
Both teams started with great intensity and ferocity. On 20 minutes, a shot by Linfield’s Naomi Donnan was tipped over the bar by home goalkeeper Maddy Harvey-Clifford. 
 
It was the Crues who took the lead as they uped their game with Lisa Armour whipping in an inch-perfect cross for McGivern to slide it over the line. 
 
Victoria Carleton had a great shot tipped over the bar again by Harvey-Clifford.  
 
The second half was marred by what looked to be a knee injury to Linfield’s captain, Ashley Hutton as she hobbled off.
 
The nearest either team came to another goal was a touch of brilliance by Crusaders’ Jessica Rea as she rattled the cross bar from a tight angle.
 
The result was enough to draw the Strikers level on points with the Blues in the standings - each have seven points after five rounds of action.
