WILSON BAGS LATE WINNER AT THE BRANDYWELL

There was late heartache for Derry City Women who conceded in the fifth minute of stoppage time against Crusaders Strikers - who came away from the Brandywell with a one-goal victory. 
 
Striker Emily Wilson scored the game’s only goal deep into stoppage time to secure a vital three points for the Crues - although it was a performance and result that once again demonstrated the huge improvement in Derry this campaign.
 
The first half saw Jessica Rea, Julie Nelson and Wilson all have attempts on goal for the visitors, but the finishing lacked the conviction that almost defined Crusaders evening.
 
Wilson headed narrowly wide on 46 minutes and only a fingertip save by Claire Friel in the Derry goal on 62 minutes denied Danielle McDowell the opener.
 
Five minutes into stoppage time at the end of the game, Wilson unleashed a long-range effort that finally broke the Derry resolve.
