Cliftonville Ladies power on at the top of the table and extended their winning run to six matches with a 4-1 success away to Linfield, who had started the day in third.
The Reds got off to a great start in the derby match as Caitlin McGuinness gave them the lead in the tenth minute an sister Kirsty McGuiness made it two, midway through the first half. Alison Smyth gave Linfield hope on the hour when she reduced the arrears from the penalty spot but two minutes later, the two-goal margin was restored by Louise McDaniel and Yasmith White rounded off the scoring with seven minutes remaining.
Cliftonville therefore remain five points ahead of Glentoran who kept up the chase in second place by also winning 4-1 against Sion Swifts. Kerry Beattie has been in superb form since the season began and the striker netted a first half brace, with Leontia McVarnock pulling one back for Sion on the stroke of half time. Glentoran were not to be denied after the break and Beattie in particular as she netted two penalties to round off a four-goal haul on the night.
Crusaders Strikers are back in third place following their 1-0 victory away to Derry City. The game looked to be heading for a draw until the fifth minute of injury time, when a long range strike from Emily Wilson gave Crusaders the points.
