There were no shock results in the Isle of Man League in the latest round of fixtures.
In Division 1, Rushen Utd's Donna Harrison went on goalscoring spree by netting six times in a 7-1 win over Peel. Natasha Robinson scored the southerners' other goal. Vanessa Roberts did take the lead for the westerners after scoring direct from a corner.
Douglas Royal were also in seventh heaven after they defeated Gymnasium 7-0. Leading 6-0 at the break, Donna Shimmin (4), Ceri Purvis (2) and Sarah Breen netted for the Noble's Park outfit. Gymnasium, who started with only ten players, finished with nine after defender Susan Yule was carried off the pitch with an ankle injury and taken to hospital via ambulance.
In Division Two, Laxey maintained their title ambitions with a 3-1 away win against Ramsey. Sarah Houghton opened the scoring for the Miners after capitalising on a poor goal kick and drove her shot into the bottom corner.
The visitors scored their second following a lay off on the left, Kirstie Egerton crossed and Kelly Barlow charged in to slot into the Ramsey net.
The Ballacloan outfit did pull a goal back before the break when they were awarded a penalty and Bekkie Colquitt converted. Laxey did have the final say in and netting a third and another valuable win after Kerry Lockwood's corner was flicked on at the near post for Christina Sutton to stab home from close range.
Also in the hunt for the Division Two title are Castletown, who also took another step closer by clocking up the biggest win of the afternoon when defeating Michael Utd 12-0. Leading 4-0 at half time, Kim Watson (5), Tricia Fleming (2), Sara Ismail-Sutton (2), Charlie Watson, Sharon Whitehouse and Rachel Palmer all found the net for the Stadium outfit. It was a memorable day for Sara Ismail-Sutton who had earlier netted nine goals Castletown against Gymnasium in the Under-16 League in the morning.
The Isle of Man women's football team will play their first match of the 2009 calendar year when they play University of Central Lancashire at Ronaldsway playing fields this Saturday, kick off 12noon. The match is seen as part of important preparations for the forthcoming Island games in Aland later on this year.
