Sports Direct Women’s Premiership leaders Glentoran and defending champions Cliftonville drew 2-2 in front of a record-breaking crowd of 868.

The game was broadcast live on YouTube, as early goals from Marissa Callaghan and Danielle Maxwell put the Reds very much in control but second half strikes from Caragh Hamilton and Demi Vance saw the Glens bounce back to claim a share of the spoils.

The result was a draw again as third hosted fourth, Sion Swifts leading through Lauren Haynes, before Keri Halliday levelled for Linfield on half-time.

Lisburn Ladies got the only goal at Crusaders Strikers, substitute Aisling Cull breaking the deadlock with 12 minutes remaining.

Mid Ulster and Ballymena United played out a scoreless draw.

Larne defeated Derry City 3-2 on Wednesday night, for their first ever top-flight victory. Hollie Johnston’s stoppage-time winner coming after the Candystripes had twice equalised.
