Mid-Ulster Ladies..5
Belfast Banks.........0


MID-Ulster Ladies hosted belfast Bank’s in their last home match of the season.
The game set off to a dream start when, after just five minutes, Laura Burton crashed home Claire Brown’s corner to give the Ladies an early lead.
The Belfast visitors had to cope with more pressure as the Mid-Ulster Ladies piled forward at every opportunity with some excellent football.
But despite some good pressure were unable to add to their lead.
They started the second half in the same vein with neat one-two football started from the back.
They eventually grabbed a second when a long goal kick found Stacey Hodgett who found Laura Burton and she again slammed the ball home.
The third goal was a flowing move which had Belfast chasing shadows.
Sharon McGuckin started and finished the move, first colecting a ball from Claire Brown, sending Julie Kirkpatrick down the left and then scoring from the resultant cross.
Michele Derby had tortured the Banks defence all night and another telling cross from her found Laura Burton in space and she slotted home to complete a superb hat-trick.
The defence then started to play some exhibition football and neat play between Elaine Junka nd Karen Stirrup released Ruth Brown who took the ball from the halfway line before cheekily chipping the the keeper for the fifth goal and complete a superb win.
