Continental Tyres WNL Cup Round-up: Wins for Shelbourne and Peamount United
Shelbourne 3-0 Galway WFC
Shelbourne Ladies got their Continental Tyres women’s national league cup off to a great start in heavy rain at the AUL Complex last night. Shels and Galway cancelled each other out in the horrendous conditions with the deadlock finally being broken in the 73rd minute by Rebecca Creagh. Siobhan Killeen’s right wing cross found Creagh at the back post to head home her third goal in two matches against the Galwegians. Killeen doubled Shels’ advantage with 10 minutes remaining with a strike from the edge of the box then Noelle Murray sealed the victory in stoppage time.
Castlebar Celtic 0-3 Peamount United
Last season’s beaten finalists Peamount United got off to a wining start with a Lauryn O’Callaghan double sealing the points in Castlebar.
O’Callaghan gave Peas the lead after the opening minutes at a dry Celtic Park before Lauren Kelly doubled the lead for visitors on 35 minutes by finishing off a slick team move to claim her first goal of the season.
The hosts produced a brave performance and looked to get back into the game before being caught on the counter attack as O’Callaghan claimed her second and Peamount’s third.
