Bohemians 2-0 Cork City
The good times continue to flow for Bohemians as they collected their fourth win of the season and extended their unbeaten run to three games.

While Cork worked hard throughout, they rarely tested goalkeeper Courtney Maguire and were instead on the back foot for large periods as Bohs applied a lot of pressure.

Abbie Brophy was excellent on the right wing and Chloe Darby pulled strings from the middle of the pitch, but it was the powerful play of striker Erica Burke that caused the most damage. And it was hardly surprising that she got the first goal - albeit from the penalty spot.

A sweet long-range finish from Lisa Murphy made sure of the win as Sean Byrne's team kept their hopes of a top-five finish alive.


DLR Waves 2-0 Galway WFC
Revenge was on the cards for DLR Waves having been dumped out of the EVOKE.ie FAI Women's Cup by Galway last weekend and they made sure that they got it.

Jetta Berrill's nice finish got them moving in that direction as the Dublin outfit withstood an early barrage of pressure from Galway, who looked the more likely to break the deadlock.

Berrill then turned provider for Rachel Doyle to make it 2-0. Galway had hardly time to catch their breath from the first goal and they were now two down with a long way back.

The comeback never materialised even though Galway did play some nice football, but the credit should go to DLR for standing firm to pick up a deserved win.


Peamount United 5-0 Shelbourne
Five goals. Five different goalscorers. And three points. The numbers certainly mean a lot to Peamount United as they leapfrogged Shelbourne to regain top spot in the League.

This Dublin Derby has traditionally been amongst the most tightly contested fixtures in the history of the League but it was one-way traffic here, leading the way to the back of Shelbourne's net time and again.

Alannah McEvoy fired in the first goal before Stephanie Roche - who was superb throughout - scored from distance as the hosts seized control of the game early on with Shels in a daze.

Further goals were added by Áine O'Gorman, Lucy McCartan and Lauren Kelly - the last two catching the eye - as Peamount moved onto 47 points.


Treaty United 0-4 Wexford Youths
It's quite amazing to think that Wexford have not slipped up since Tom Elmes left to take charge of the Republic of Ireland Women's Under-16s. They are actually unbeaten since the opening day of the season.

Even with several players having departed throughout the season, Wexford have never looked like being knocked off their stride. And that was no different here in Jackman Park as their collective quality won the day.

Sinead Taylor, Kylie Murphy and Ciara Rossiter scored one apiece in a very one-sided first half, before Aoibheann Clancy - arguably the leading contender for the Young Player of the Season award - adding a fourth goal in the second period.

Treaty fought hard and their efforts were admirable, but Wexford's attacking play was just too much for them to contend with on a day when the visitors went away with the victory.
