WATCH | Hat-trick for Howe in Glens win

Three was the magic number for Northern Ireland international Casey Howe as she netted a hat-trick in Glentoran Women’s big win over Linfield Ladies in the Women’s Premiership last night.

The Glens eased to a 9-0 success over their big rivals with Howe taking home the match ball after scoring all three of her goals in a 17-minute blitz early in the second half.

Fellow internationals Kerry Beattie and Joely Andrews got the ball rolling for the Glens with early strikes in minute 10 and 11 respectively. Jessica Foy made it four with less than a quarter of an hour on the clock thanks to a quick-fire double.

Then came Howe’s hat-trick before an own goal and a late Rachel Rogan strike wrapped up a memorable victory for the reigning champions.

Elsewhere Northern Ireland internationals Kirsty McGuinness, Marissa Callaghan and Toni-Leigh Finnegan were all on target as Cliftonville Ladies secured an impressive 3-1 victory over Crusaders Strkiers. Amy McGivern scored for the Crues.


Meanwhile Sion Swifts ran out four nil winners over Derry City at the Brandywell. Kerryanne Brown and Hayley O’Donnell each netted before the break, before a second half double from substitute Caoirse Doherty.
