Ladies Blues out

Cliftonville Ladies slipped to a narrow defeat to Linfield Ladies in this evening’s Danske Bank Women’s Premiership fixture at Solitude.

Despite being ahead through Toni-Leigh Finnegan’s penalty at the interval, the Reds saw their control on the contest begin to slip away when Megan Weatherall was dismissed for picking up a second yellow card, with the visitors taking advantage when Ebony Leckey levelled matters.

With seven minutes remaining, substitute Katie Dickson put the Blues in front ahead of Leckey’s second of the night giving Linfield some vital breathing space which came into full effect when Finnegan reduced the arrears with an outrageous long-range effort.

Unfortunately for Cliftonville, however, they were unable to muster a late comeback as their long-awaited return to action ended in disappointment.
