Cliftonville Ladies and Glentoran Women were both in seventh heaven on Wednesday night as they record notable victories in the Danske Bank Women's Premiership.

Diarmuid O’Carroll’s Glens began their campaign with a six-goal victory over Comber Rec ladies last week but went one better last night with a landslide victory over Derry City at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium.

Rachel Rogan netted twice for the East Belfast side with last week’s hat-trick hero Kelly Bailie this time netting a brace with Aimee-Lee Peachey, Nadene Caldwell and Demi Vance also among the scorers.

Cliftonville Ladies did not play last week but a Marissa Callaghan hat-trick saw the Reds breeze to a 7-0 home victory over Comber Rec Ladies.

Amber Dempster was on target twice for North Belfast side as Rachel McConnell and Toni-Leigh Finnegan also found the net in the rout.

The other match of the night was a much tighter affair, with Sion Swifts Ladies edging out Crusaders Strikers 1-0 at the Melvin Park Arena.

The Strabane-based side won the game late on through Ciara Grant to register their first points of the campaign after a defeat at Linfield Ladies last week.
