Crusaders-Newtownabbey sunk by slick Slovaks

Crusaders-Newtownabbey Strikers finished their UEFA Champions League qualifying campaign without a point to their name after going down 1-0 to Slovan Bratislava at Stangmore Park last night.

Lenka Mravikova got the only goal of the game in the 14th minute to give the Slovaks their first win of the tournament and condemn the Strikers to bottom place in the three team series.

Northern Ireland international Helen McKenna was shown the red card in the second-half after collecting a second booking.

Duisburg grabbed the one qualifying spot after a decisive 4-0 win over Glagow City at the Ballymena Showgrounds.
