Linfield Ladies have champion feeling
Linfield Ladies clinched the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership title last night in emphatic style, sweeping aside nearest challengers Cliftonville Ladies 4-0.
The Blues just needed to avoid defeat to be crowned champions but they finished the job in some style.
Nine points ahead of their Belfast rivals and having played a game less, Linfield were a cut above the rest and nine victories in 10 matches is a superb record.
The team was determined to cross the line with a bit of a swagger and they displayed their ruthless treak again at Rathmore Grammar School last night.
The Blues were held to a draw on the opening day of the season but since then they have been a different class, scoring 47 goals and only conceding three in 11 outings.
Cliftonville defeated Mid-Ulster Ladies 2-0 on Monday but they finally ran out of steam against the league leaders.
Elsewhere, Crusaders Strikers recorded an impressive 4-2 victory at Mid-Ulster Ladies, a result which sees the Crues leapfrog their rivals in the league table.
It was revenge for the Belfast side after the hosts won the reverse tie 2-1 at Seaview in May.
Newry City Ladies made it four wins on the spin with a 5-2 victory over Glentoran Belfast United at the Showgrounds.
The Glens sit second from bottom but the Newry girls lie third in the table.
