In the Legacy Ulster Women’s Premier League Queen’s University usurped Ards for top spot.

With Ards having drawn 0-0 with Lisnagarvey on Friday night, first place was up for grabs for the students when they faced Banbridge on Saturday.

Zoe Wilson gave the students the lead just three minutes into the fixture when she fired in from a short corner.

The hosts managed to stay in the tie until the third quarter when Wilson got her second goal of the fixture, this time rounding off a move from open play.

Later in the quarter, the division’s top scorer Alyssa Jebb fired in her ninth of the season to make it three, before Jodie Simmons rounded off the 4-0 win.

Elsewhere in the division, Ballymoney made it back-to-back wins for the first time this season as they beat Armagh 4-2.

Two goals from Nikki Parke and strikes from Suzanna Brown and Katherine Boyd secured the victory which now moves them six points clear of the relegation zone.

Belfast Harlequins got back to winning ways when they beat Portadown 3-2 at Deramore on Saturday.

Quins took an early lead through Claire Whiteside after the forward was quickest to react to an initial save from the goalkeeper and it didn’t take long for her to double the lead from a fantastic solo effort.

Portadown were given a route back into the game through Rebekah Lennon when her reverse flew into the corner in the second quarter.

However, at the beginning of the third period, Julie Dennison restored the hosts two goal advantage from a penalty corner to make it 3-1.

Despite a quick Portadown response seeing Emily Adamson make it 3-2, Harlequins held on for a third win in their last four games.

The final game of the day saw Lurgan beat Omagh 6-1, condemning the County Tyrone side to an eighth defeat in a row.

Goals from Lydia McNeill, Stephanie Thompson, Emma McEntee, Jo-Anne Reid and two from Chloe McCann sealed the victory which saw them climb to fourth in the table.

Meanwhile, their opponents stay eighth, just one point ahead of bottom-placed Armagh.
