Crusaders Strikers were 6-1 winners away to Ballymena United in the Sports Direct NIFL Women’s Premiership on Wednesday 19 July.

Next-to-bottom Ballymena were two down to a Amy McGivern brace but Natasha Bamford did halve the deficit just after the half-hour mark.

However, Darcy Boyle restored the visitors’ two-goal cushion on half-time and doubled her tally nine minutes after the restart.

Darcie McNeill’s penalty swiftly made it 5-1 and Zoe Rodgers completed the scoring in the final 10 minutes.
