There were five games in the Legacy Ulster Women’s Premier League this weekend as newly promoted Omagh picked up their first victory since returning to the division.

Following an impressive opening day draw to last season’s runners-up Lurgan, they recorded a 3-2 away victory over Banbridge.

A first-half brace from Katie McDowell was followed by a strike from Amy McCollum in the third quarter to secure the win.

The result puts them into fourth place in the league whilst their opposition remain bottom and are yet to pick up a point this campaign.

Meanwhile, Queen’s University continued their winning start to this season with a 3-0 win away to Lisnagarvey.

Jenna McCarlie and Zoe Wilson were both scorers in last weekend’s victory over Banbridge and the pair made it two games in a row as McCarlie got her second of the season whilst Wilson added two to her tally.

The result keeps the students in top spot where they are joined by Ards as the only other side with maximum points as they recorded a comfortable 4-0 win over Portadown.

Elsewhere Lurgan picked up their first win of the season in a close encounter against Ballymoney.

After a quiet first quarter, Lurgan began to take control of the game in the second, however, their opponents remained a constant threat on the counter attack.

It was last season’s runners-up who got the opening goal when Kathryn Edgar strike from a penalty corner broke the deadlock on the brink of half-time.

Just moments after the half-time break Lurgan doubled their lead from another short corner with Charlene Stewart the goalscorer on this occasion.

Having gone 2-0 down, Ballymoney remained a threat but having failed to break down a stubborn Lurgan defence, the scored finished 2-0.

In the days other two games Belfast Harlequins got off the mark with a 2-1 win against Armagh whilst Ards went second in the table with a 4-0 win over Portadown.
