FAI Women’s Cup Quarter Finals

The 4 FAI Women’s Cup quarter finalists were decided over the weekend. Before each game a minutes silence was observed for Michael Hayes.

Galway 2 – 3 Wexford Youths

The tie of the round saw holders Wexford Youths come from behind to get past Galway. It was Galway who took the lead through a de Búrca header. Wexford equalized through Ciara Rossiter who hit a shot from a long way out that beat everybody. Vanessa Ogbonna’s strike ensured Wexford went in in front. Extratime was a very real possibility when Turrentine scored from range. Wexford would win it through last years final hero Lauren Kelly with 5 minutes to spare.

Vanessa Ogbonna joined us previously alongside teammate Blessing Kingsley to speak about being black in Irish football and how racism manifests itself, you can read about that podcast and listen by clicking here.

Peamount 1 – 0 Shelbourne

Peas had put 6 past Shels the week prior to this game in the league. It took just 13 minutes for them to go 1 – 0 up, with the ever prolific Eleanor Ryan-Doyle scoring. There wouldn’t be a repeat of the 7 goal game we saw last week. This was a tight affair with some late late defending needed.

Bohemians 1 – 3 Cork City

Cork City continued their winning run on the weekend against a Bohs side who had already played a preliminary round fixture. First half goals from Lauren Egbuloniu, Ciara McNamara,and Nathalie O’Brien had the win wrapped up in the first 35 minutes. Abbie Brophy pulled one back for Cork on the hour mark.

Treaty United 2 – 0 DLR Waves

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.
