Lowry Phils his boots

Philip Lowry blasted a stunning four goals as 10-man Linfield demolished Donegal Celtic 5-0 in yesterday's Carling Premiership contest at Windsor Park.

The Blues are one of just two sides with a 100% record in the table with Glentoran joining them at the summit thanks to a 2-1 defeat of Dungannon Swifts.

Elsewhere, Coleraine and Cliftonville played out a 1-1 draw, Glenavon stormed from three goals behind to earn a point against Ballymena United, Crusaders edged out Carrick Rangers 2-1 and Portadown hit Lisburn Distillery for five.
