FIRST HALF GOALS SET SION UP FOR THE WIN
First half goals from Cora Chambers and Aimee Durn propelled Sion Swifts Ladies to their second successive victory with a home win over Mid Ulster Ladies.
Having won 5-1 at the division’s other newly-promoted side Lisburn Ladies the previous week, Tony McGinley’s side secured their first home points of the campaign with a three-goal victory, as Naomi McLaughlin’s penalty seven minutes from time put the result beyond doubt.
The result – coupled with Lisburn Ladies’ scoreless draw at Derry City Women – ensured that Mid Ulster are now the only side without a point after the opening three rounds of matches.
