Cork City 2-2 Athlone Town
The points were shared in Turner's Cross, but only because Cork refused to give up and had Christina Dring to thank for converting a very late equaliser.

Athlone had taken the lead when a long ball caused confusion with goalkeeper Abby McCarthy rushing outside of her area and it fell to Katelyn Keogh to slot in.

Midfielder Éabha O'Mahony responded for The Leesiders with a deftly-taken finish from her left boot to make it 1-1 at the break. All squad and all fair between the bottom two teams.

The visitors regained the lead through Roisin Molloy when a corner kick wasn't cleared but their second win of the season was snatched away when substitute Dring scored in added time.


DLR Waves 1-2 Shelbourne
With the two best goalkeepers in the League up against each other, this was always going to be a tight encounter and a special goal was needed to decide it. Rebecca Cooke provided that finish.

DLR actually started the better of the two teams as they pressed high and limited space for Shels to operate in. When they did have a chance, such as Saoirse Noonan's overhead kick, it was batted away by goalkeeper Eve Badana.

The net minder, however, was beaten shortly after the restart when Noonan notched her seventh goal of the season. But Jetta Berrill hit back for DLR just past the hour to make a fight of it,

Time was running out for Shels to claim the three points required to stay level with Peamount United when substitute Cooke popped up with a smashing left-footed drive to win it.


Galway WFC 0-1 Wexford Youths
Wexford have gone about their business with a quiet efficiency in recent weeks, but showed a clinical edge each time to ensure they remain very much in the title race.

Edel Kennedy's first-half goal proved to the difference on the scoreboard in this one, although it was the transition play that really stood out with the visitors moving the ball quickly between the lines.

Stephen Quinn's team should have added more goals in the second half - especially when Ellen Molloy broke free to set up Aisling Frawley - but they didn't take their chances. In the end, they didn't need to.

This was another game where Galway will feel that they didn't do themselves justice. They had flashes of good play and created some half chances but their individual quality is capable of more.


Peamount United 5-1 Treaty United
On a day when both Wexford Youths and Shelbourne occupied top spot at different stages, Peamount will be relieved to be back in pole position - albeit on goal difference.

Sadhbh Doyle got them started with a close range finish early on before Eleanor Ryan-Doyle with a Dearbhaible Beirne cross with a cushioned header.

Treaty, who have a history of making things difficult for Peamount, responded by scoring from the restart when Aoife Cronin was sent clear and she slotted in.

However, the champions showed their class in the second half with Alannah McEvoy and Ryan-Doyle adding to the scoreline before Karen Duggan finished it all off.
