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.

Cork City 1-2 Galway
Galway ended Cork’s winning run on Saturday. Lynsey McKey scored just before the hour mark, and then late on. Becky Cassin’s goal made for a nervy ending but Galway held out.
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.
At the time of writing the remaining game between Wexford Youths and Galway has yet to be confirmed. Next week is the start of phase 2 of the league. The league will split, with the tip 5 teams playing eachother and the bottom 4 teams playing eachother.
