SEVEN ON THE BOUNCE FOR THE STRIKERS
Crusaders Strikers moved into second spot in the Sports Direct Women's Premiership with victory over Lisburn Ladies at the Bluebell Stadium.
Caitlyn Hamilton headed the Strikers in front on ten minutes after a ball from the right had been knocked back into her path.
Hamilton doubled up early in the second half with a close range finish after a corner had caused problems for the home defence.
Aisling Cull pulled one back for Lisburn with ten minutes remaining after Michelle McDaid had flicked the ball on from the edge of the area.
But the Crues restored their two-goal cushion soon after when Rachel McLaren unleashed a terrific effort from well outside the area into the top corner.
