Wexford Youths AFC moved into third position in the Continental Tyres Women’s National League table after a blistering second-half performance against Kilkenny United.
Wexford led 4-2 at half-time in a competitive opening period, held in Bunclody AFC after Ferrycarrig Park was adjudged to be unplayable following heavy rain on Friday night.
Youth’s took a 2-0 lead thanks to a Kylie Murphy penalty and an Emma Hansberry strike, before Sylvia Gee halved the deficit for Kilkenny.
Hansberry and Aoibhin Webb both found the net before Gee grabbed her second of the day to leave the half time score 4-2.
The half time introduction of Claire O’Riordan changed the game, finding the net four times in the second half, bringing her league total to 12 for the season.
Hansberry completed her hat-trick in the second half with Aisling Frawley grabbing two and Kylie Murphy adding another, making the final score 12-2.
“We’re delighted to be back to winning ways in the League,” declared Wexford boss Will Doyle. “The girls are really positive and we’re looking forward to a big game with UCD Waves on April 20th."
