FIVE STAR BLUES LEAPFROG CANDYSTRIPES

Linfield leapfrogged Derry City into fourth spot with a 5-1 victory over the Candystripes at Midgley Park.

The visitors raced into an early lead through Tara O'Connor-Farren's seventh minute finish but this was cancelled out by Northern Ireland international Keri Halliday sixty seconds later.

On form Linfield striker Eve Reilly then seized the mantle, edging the Blues in front after a quarter-of-an-hour before doubling her tally for the evening just six minutes after that!

And the 19-year-old claimed the match ball for the second successive week with her hat-trick goal moments after the interval, with Alex Clarke bagging a fifth for Linfield on the hour.
