WNL Round-Up: End of Phase 1

Last weekend was the final scheduled round of phase 1 of the league. However there is still a game to be played in phase 1. During the week Peamount beat DLR Waves 3-2.

Treaty United 0-7 Shelbourne

Shels secured the 2nd biggest win of this seasons Women’s National League, putting 7 past Treaty in Limerick. Two first half goals from Whelan, and one each from Grant and Murray put Shels in control. In the second half Gargan scored 2 and Dodd got another one.

DLR Waves 0-2 Wexford Youths

DLR Waves hosted Wexford at the UCD Bowl. The opening exchanges were fairly even with both sides cancelling eachother out. The deadlock was broken through Belssing Kingsley’s goal which game out of nowhere. Aoibeheann Clancy scored off a rebounded freekick late on to seal the win. Wexford have finished in the top section of the league, despite still having a phase 1 game remaining against Galway.

There was a special guest at the UCD Bowl. Abi Ward has been working tirelessly to raise money for Pieta House and Focus Ireland. Abi has been doing 4K a day for 19 days, then on day 20 she is running a half marathon. Graham Kelly and the rest of the DLR Waves team invited Abi to the game on Saturday.

Bohemians 1-0 Athlone Town

Bohemians got their first ever Women’s National League win to move off the foot of the table. Niamh Kenna got the goal.

Ahead of the international break there were 4 games on in the Women’s National League. During the week Cork went to Treaty Utd and won 2 – 5.

Peamount Utd 2 – 1 Galway

Peamount got back to winning ways by edging out Galway on Saturday. Galway went ahead early on through McKey. Aine O’Gorman is the joint top scorer in the league, she converted from the penalty spot to put Peas level. Just before the break Karen Duggan scored a belter of a goal from 30 yards out, right in the top corner.

We could watch that Karen Duggan strike over and over again.

Treaty Utd 1 – 5 Wexford Youths

Wexford continue their challenge to regain the WNL title they last won in 2018. Young sensation Ellen Molloy made it 0 – 1 from a long range freekick. The 16-year-old has been named in Vera Pauw’s Ireland squad to face Germany, and was awarded player of the month for August. Frawley and Kelly added goals either side of halftime. Jenna Slattery got one back from the penalty spot, before Edel Kennedy got her head on the end of a freekick. Kennedy turned provider when she set up Blessing Kingsley for the 5th.

Kingsley will be on the show this Friday, we previously spoke to her and others about their experience of racism in Irish football.

Cork City 2 – 0 Athlone Town

Cork got their 3rd win on the bounce to move up to 4th. Lauren Egbuloniu continued her fine form after her return from injury with a goal before halftime. Saoirse Noonan got the 2nd.
