Royals defeat Rushen to go top

Douglas Royal gave their title ambitions a big boost, and dented Rushen's at the same time, in the only match in the Sure Mobile Women's League yesterday.

They overcame the Spaniards 2-0 at Croit Lowey thanks to first half goals from Rebecca Cole and Donna Shimmin.

Both sides had gone in to the game unbeaten in the league.

Royals' win sees them maintain their 100% record and gives them a two point lead at the top over Rushen with a game in hand.

Meanwhile Peel beat Colby 2-1 as the Sure Mobile Women's Floodlit Cup got under way at the NSC.

Goals from Emma Faulkner and Sandra McLaughlin secured the win for the westerners.

Yesterday's stormy conditions put paid to the other cup fixture, Laxey against Corinthians, which was due to take place at Castle Rushen High School's astroturf pitch.
