Linfield Ladies 1-1 Glentoran Women

Wed, 12/05/2021 - 22:27

A second half equaliser from Northern Ireland international Sam Kelly maintained the Glens' unbeaten start to their title defence at Midgeley Park this evening.

The Big Two went toe-to-toe in a superb end-to-end encounter with both sides creating plenty of chances to win, but ultimately the spoils were shared.

Skipper Jessica Foy fired over for the Glens in the 25th minute but it was the Blues who took the lead when Rebecca Bassett finished in style after Rebecca McKenna created the opening.


Bassett had another chance early in the second half but her effort flew over the par before both Kerry Beattie and Kelly rattled the post for the visit.

Kelly equalised with seven minutes remaining with a left-footed effort and she could have won the game late on but was denied by a brilliant save from the home side’s goalkeeper Nicole Adams.
