Castlebar Celtic  P Cork City Women’s FC P

Raheny United 2 Galway WFC 2

Wexford Youth’s Women’s AFC 3 Peamount United 2

Katie McCabe rescued a point for a Raheny United with a stunning last minute volley against Galway WFC at Morton Stadium. Galway were looking to cause an upset against the Pandas, who were fresh from their UEFA Women’s Champions League adventure, and took the lead through Ruth Fahy.

 

Noelle Murray equalised for the champions early in the second half, before Galway regained the lead with a Marie Curtain penalty after an hour. But, McCabe rescued a point with a last gasp volley meaning Raheny remain second two points behind UCD Waves, who didn’t play this weekend.

 

Elsewhere, Wexford picked up two back to back wins with a three one victory over Peamount united in Ferrycarrig Park. Amber Barrett gave Peamount the lead after five minutes but Carol Breen’s expert free-kick levelled it for Wexford, with Claire O’Riordan firing home on 17 minutes.

 

Amy Walsh made it three one to the hosts after 28 minutes. Amber Barrett grabbed her second of the game ten minutes before the end, her fifth goal in two games. Peamount keeper Brooke Dunne then saved a Claire O’Riordan penalty on 82 minutes but it wasn’t enough to stop Wexford moving to third place behind Raheny United on goal difference.

 

Saturday night’s fixture between Castlebar Celtic and Cork City women’s was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch in Celtic park. The game will be rescheduled in due course.
