Dromore Amateurs were no match for defending champions Glentoran Belfast United at their Oval fortress

The home side were one goal up after three minutes with Katrina Montgomery hitting the back of the net from a corner.

A long range shot from Demi Vance beat Dromore keeper Danille Brady soon after giving Glentoran a two goal cushion at half time.

The flood gates were to open in the second half.

The Champions were clinical after the break - Rebecca Bassett scored their third from close range; Vance lobbed the keeper for her second and rounded off her hat-trick from the penalty spot.

Kelly Bailie came off the subs bench to score three goals as well giving the Glens a resounding 8-0 victory. Glentoran, it seems, have one hand on the trophy already.

Linfield Ladies had high hopes of winning their first ever Premier League title but a 2-2 draw with Crusaders Strikers put paid to that dream.

With just three minutes on the clock Alex Ogle ran onto Danielle McDowell's precision pass and rounded Nicole Adams in the Linfield nets to slot home.

The home side equalised just after the half hour mark, Lyndsay Corry smashing Sarah Venney's corner past Crues keeper Sarah Lemon.

Back came the Crues - Ogle unleashing a superb 25 yard strike to make it 2-1 at half time.

Ryan McConville's side found their all important equaliser thanks to Kirsty McGuinness who headed the ball over Lemon following a poor clearance.

Crusaders then had Captain Lisa Armour sent off for a second bookable offence, but Linfield were unable to capitalise and will now focus on their IFA Women's Cup final and Premier League Cup final in early September.

While Crusaders may be bossing the Danske Bank Premiership, it was their North Belfast rivals Cliftonville who made the headlines again this weekend.
