Legacy Wealth Management Premiership: QUB, Elks and Coleraine win on the road

In complete contrast from the men’s Premiership, all three travelling sides were victorious in the women’s fixtures.

The biggest win of the day came at the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre with league leaders Ulster Elks dominating Ballymoney in a 7-1 victory.

Two goals each for Alex Speers, Shannon Atkinson, Charlie Beggs as well as a strike from Serena Barr gave the UUJ side the victory despite a consolation goal from the home team.

The win keeps them top of the league and makes it 14 wins from as many games for Joel Cathcart’s side as they continue their fantastic form so far this season.

Elsewhere Coleraine travelled to Armagh and got their first win in six matches as they came out on top with a 3-2 victory.

The match itself provided an opportunity for both teams to pull away from the lower end of the table.

Anna Shaw gave Coleraine an early lead, but it wasn’t enough as the scores were soon levelled following a Pippa Best strike.

However, club Captain Kelly Watt scored twice either side of an Anna McKew goal to give her side the lead and eventually all three points.

The win now moves them four points ahead of bottom of the league Raphoe and just one point behind today’s opponents Armagh in seventh.

In the third game of the day Queen’s University beat Raphoe 6-1 at Royal and Prior School.

The result was never in doubt with two goals each from Jodie Simmons and Jess McMaster as well as a goal apiece for Jenna McCarlie and Alyssa Jebb.

The Donegal side did manage to grab a consolation goal, but it was too late for them to be able to salvage anything from the game.

The loss keeps them in tenth and means they missed their opportunity to capitalise on a game in hand on North Down of whom they are level on points with.

Meanwhile in Senior One Randalstown, Omagh, Dungannon and NICS all recorded wins whilst Portadown were the highest scorers of the day as they put on a brilliant display to beat CI 7-1.

The results mean the biggest winners of the day were Omagh who remain unbeaten and move three points clear at the top of the league following Ballymena’s loss to Civil Service.
