Wexford Youths Women 10-0 Cork City Women

UCD Waves 3-0 Galway WFC

WEXFORD Youths Women's charge to the Continental Tyres Women’s National League title marched on with a 10-0 crushing of Cork City Women’s today.

The Model County side raced into an early lead with Carol Breen and Kylie Murphy putting the Youths 2-0 up. Breen grabbed her second before the break with Claire O’Riordan helping Youths to a 4-0 half-time lead.

Cork had a player sent-off and Youths capitalised as Breen completed her hat trick early into the second half. Claire O’Riordan completed her hat-trick to make it 6-0 and grab her 11th of the season.

Shanua Wall made it 7-0 before the hour mark with Claire O’Riordan grabbing her fourth of the day and Becky Cashin wrapping up the scoring for Youths to run out 10–0 winners.

Youths now stand four points clear of champions Raheny United and Willie Doyle’s side have seven games remaining, one less than champions Raheny.

Elsewhere, UCD Waves got back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over Galway WFC in Jackson Park after the kick off was delayed due to an issue with one of the goals.

Savannah McCarthy gave Waves the lead just after the hour half mark driving a right foot shot into the top corner of Galway keepers Tina Hughes’s net.

Rosie Maguire doubled the advantage for Waves on the hour mark, before doubling her tally for the afternoon six minutes later, chipping home the rebound after Kelleher’s good save.

Maguire nearly had her hat-trick five minutes later after Julie Ann Russell cut the ball back only for Maguire to blast over.

Karen Duggan picked up the Continental Tyres player of the match award as Waves remain in third place five points behind leaders Wexford.
