Corinthians claim point at Rushen
 Women's Football News 18 Sep 2008
Corinthians claim point at Rushen - 18 Sep 2008 - Women's Football NewsConsidering that this was meant to be a year of transition for Corinthians, considering too that they have only won once in their previous four visits, a point was a welcome boost from this women's footballing fortress at Rushen Utd as both teams shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw as another Isle of Man women's football season gets underway.
With both teams each fielding three debutantes, it was Lauren Christian, another player who has come through the Corinthians' youth ranks, who impressed the most, excelling at left back.
With Corinthians looking slicker from the outset, working zig-zags along the right flank, Jade Burden was a real battering ram in the attacking third, unsettling the Rushen defence using sheer brute force and twice she forced good saves from Stanley.
Donna Harrison was Rushen's main attacking threat and she twice went close to scoring for the hosts. It was the Whites who struck first before half time when Burden was felled in the area and Helen Thomas converted the resulting spot-kick.
Anna Dillon showed a flash of magic after the break, a weaving run which resulted in a shot that went wide but Rushen got back in their stride and equalised following a counter attack, Harrison freeing Eleanor Gawne who struck an angled effort into the roof of the net. Both teams lacked real attacking adventure to score the winner but it was Voirrey Holmes who came closest, her stinging shot was tipped away by Stanley 
Rushen Utd: Elizabeth Stanley, Rochelle O'Toole, Sam Macdonald, Kirsty Qualtrough, Eleanor Gawne, Hannah Griffiths, Siobhan Lockwood, Dawn Georgeson, Natasha Robinson, Natalie Swales, Donna Harrison.
Corinthians: Rachel Quirk, Lauren Christian (sub Voirrey Holmes 63m), Natalie Johnson, Sarah O'Reilly, Anna Dillon, Anna Quayle, Steph Hall, Leonie Roberts, Jade Burden, Helen Thomas, Sarah Kerford.

Castletown clocked up the biggest win from last Sunday, beating an understrength Michael Utd 13-0. Leading 7-0 at half time, Sarah Denny (5), Tricia Fleming (5), Justine Carran (2) and Kim Watson all found the target for the southerners.
Visitors Peel clinched a 1-0 victory over Laxey. In a keenly contested match, the breakthrough arrived in the second half following a corner kick that was cleared as far as Vanessa Roberts who unleashed the winner into the top corner.
Colby started their 2008-09 season with a 6-3 win over Ramsey at Ballacloan. Rebecca Radcliffe scrambled home for the hosts within the first minute with Charlotte Beards scoring twice after latching onto two through balls to make it 2-1. Nikki Cooil extended Colby's lead and Louise Corkish fired home two long range efforts either side of half time to make it 5-1. Rebecca Colquitt's effort just inside the penalty area reduced the arrears with Emma Gill notching Colby's sixth before Natalie Davies chipped home a 35-yard effort for Ramsey's third.
Douglas Royal got their season off to the perfect start after defeating a rejuventated Gymnasium 3-2. The visitors took the lead when Dawn Quinn collected a through ball and slotted it past Royals keeper Kerri Willams. Four minutes before half time, Royal drew level as Donna Shimmin cut in and shot across goal, goalkeeper Rose Ozga parried into the path of Sarah Breen to rifle home. Brian Cowin's side took the lead for the first time after the interval when Shimmin latched onto a through ball to score and made it 3-1. Gymnasium pulled a goal back when Williams parried a cross and Kim Carney converted.
