Cliftonville, Glentoran, Linfield and Lisburn Rangers all won away in the Toalsbet County Antrim Women’s Cup quarter-finals on Monday evening.

Glentoran made an 86th-minute breakthrough for the only goal of the game at Crusaders Strikers. Sarah Tweedie came off the bench and marked her return from injury with the winner.

The opening goal for Cliftonville at Lisburn Ladies also came in the last ten minutes, after Toni-Leigh Finnegan missed a second-half penalty for the visitors. Fionnula Morgan eventually put them in front and Caitlin McGuinness sealed their progress in stoppage time.
