Six seemed to be the order of the day in the Mayo Women's Football League on Friday evening with two of the three winning teams putting that number of goals past their opposition.

Ballinrobe Town kept a clean sheet in their 6-0 win over visiting Crossmolina. Natasja Merry got herself a hat-trick, while Maisie Farrell scored twice and Leagh Byrne converted a penalty in the 23rd minute.

Castlebar Town also put six past Conn Rangers, with six scorers in total in the referee's notebook at the end of play.

Conn gave Town an early rattle with Mila Sotoparra netting on 20 minutes. But from there on the scoring belonged to the home side, and they'll be pleased to see six different players on the scoresheet - Chloe Morley, Belinda Patterson, Mary Tyrrell, Louise Dowling, Anna Tuohy and Shauna Redmond.

Swinford hosted Kilmore in the third game of the weekend's league fixtures where it finished 3-1 in favour of the home side.

Liadh McGrath scored the Kimore goal but Chloe Thompson proved to be a shrewd substitution just after the half-hour mark, popping up with two of the Swinford goals. The third came courtesy of the very consistent Kaitlyn Jordan.



Manulla are on the road again this weekend with a trip to Donegal on Sunday (April 16th) where they face Bonagee United in the second round of the Women's FAI Amateur Cup.

Kick-off at Dry Arch Park in Letterkenny is at 2 p.m.
