BLUES COME FROM BEHIND - AGAIN
Linfield Ladies came from behind for the second week in a row to record a 4-1 victory on the road by defeating Lisburn Ladies.
The hosts took a 16th-minute lead as Rachel Kerr netted from 25 yards with a superb finish, but having also come from a goal down to win at Derry City the previous week – the Blues responded.
Keri Halliday levelled the score just before half-time with Carla Devine giving the Blues midway through the second period.
It was a dominant second half display from Phil Lewis’s side and their pressure paid off with Halliday and Devine both finding the net again late on to put gloss on the scoreline.
