Irish international Zoe Wilson scored twice as Randalstown defeated Queen's 4-2 at the Antrim Forum last night to move joint top of the Ulster Premier League table.

It was a triumphant return for the 19-year-old, who is home temporarily after sealing a move to Germany this season.

However, Queen's will have a chance to exact swift retribution for last night's defeat as the teams meet again in the Denman Ulster Shield semi-final at Lisnagarvey tomorrow.

Katherine McDowell gave Town a 14th-minute lead and Wilson got her first six minutes later to put the Co Antrim side in the driving seat.

But Queen's fought back as Stephanie McCullough reduced the deficit in the 27th minute and then Anna Hutchinson levelled matters shortly before the half-time interval.

However, Wilson grabbed her second two minutes after the restart and Nicole Mott sealed the win with 17 minutes remaining.

In last night's other top-flight match, Portadown beat Banbridge 2-1 at Edenvilla Park in an important contest between two teams that are likely to be fighting it out at the other end of the table.

Leanne Cassells hit both goals for the Ports, including a late winner, with Rachel Kerr equalising after her first effort.

Meanwhile, Roisin Upton has been called up to the Ireland squad for next week's triple-header against Scotland as a replacement for the injured Megan Frazer.
