Wexford Youths WFC remain top of the Continental Tyres Women's National League following a 4-2 victory over UCD Waves in the weekend's big game.

Linda Douglas opened the scoring for Will Doyle's side after 20 minutes, but UCD hit back just two minutes later through Republic of Ireland women's international Aine O'Gorman.

The visitors to Ferrycarrig Park then went ahead as O'Gorman scored again, bringing her League tally to five for the season, but that lead didn't last long as Wexford roared back.

Firstly, Claire O'Riordan levelled matters before captain Kylie Murphy fired in and midfielder Becky Cassin finished things off as the champions secured the three points.

In Eamonn Deacy Park, Galway WFC proved to be too strong for Peamount United as they recorded a 3-1 victory to keep pressure on League leaders Wexford.

The first goal had an element of fortune to it as Lynsey McKey's corner kick evaded everyone and bounced into the Peamount goal, but the away team responded through a header from Niamh Farrelly.

Galway, however, discovered some momentum in the second half as Elle Rose O'Flaherty netted twice for Don O'Riordan's team who are on 12 points alongside Wexford but trail them on goal difference.

On Sunday, Cork City WFC shared the spoils with Kilkenny United WFC in a 1-1 draw in Mayfield as Lauren Homan's goal for the home side was cancelled out by Lisa Murphy.

The game between Shelbourne Ladies FC and Castlebar Celtic was postponed.
