Things looked even better for Youths in the 20th minute as Rianna Jarrett doubled he sides advantage with another headed finish after a great pass by Nicola Sinnott.

 

 

Linfield managed to pull their first of two goals back in the 43rd minute as Megan Bell scored a free-kick for Linfield leaving Youths one goal in front going into half time.
