SION BACK INTO FOURTH
Sion Swifts Ladies leapfrogged Linfield Ladies – who do not play until Wednesday night against Lisburn Ladies – into a top four slot with an eight-goal victory over Derry City Women.
Kerry Brown’s free-kick had separated the sides at the break, but a seven-goal blitz from Sion in the second half blew Derry away and transformed the host’s goal difference into the process.
Cora Chambers bagged a hat-trick as Aimee Neal, Caoirse Doherty, Naomi Donnan and Kelly Crompton all got on the scoresheet.
