PEAMOUNT UNITED delivered a purposeful performance to reclaim top spot in the Bus Éireann Women's National League.

Inspired by the excellent Sara Lawlor Peamount were always in control against newcomers DLR Waves, who battled bravely throughout.

From an early stage it was apparent that Peamount were in the groove and they hit the front in the 15th minute courtesy of Stephanie Roche, who notched her third of the campaign.

In the 33rd minute Lawlor added a second following a spell in which Peamount played particularly pretty football.

DLR Waves were honest and determined, but Peamount scored a third on 63 when Louise Quinn following a Lawlor assist.

Peamount were dominant with Lawlor rifling a fourth on 72, while Stephanie Roche converted a penalty with seven minutes left on the clock.

In the closing stages DLR Waves pressed for a consolation and they got it in the 87th minute courtesy of an opportunistic Michelle Dunne finish.

At Ferrycarrig Park Wexford Youths and Shamrock Rovers divided the spoils drawing 1-1 at the end of a tight contest.

There was plenty at stake in this fixture, but Rovers produced a vastly improved display to frustrate the locals.

All the significant action happened late on as Wexford eventually hit the front in the 70th minute when Sadie Murphy scored.

Unfortunate to lose their first two encounters Rovers responded and levelled eight minutes from time when Rachel Jenkins bagged a penalty to net her second of the season.

Out west there was no shortage of goalmouth action as Castlebar Celtic survived a late Cork Women's FC onslaught.

Emma Hansberry nudged Celtic ahead in the fourth minute, but Cork were back on terms by the half hour mark when Lauren Murphy scored a penalty.

Then the Mayo outfit took control hitting three goals without reply as Nicole Fowley edged them ahead as the pace increased.

Emma Mullin, still an influential performer, struck twice including one from the spot as Celtic stretched their advantage to 4-1.

Cork replied with two goals of their own from Lynsey McKey and Denise O'Sullivan, but Castlebar held out to record an important victory.
