Galway WFC advance in Continental Tyres WNL Cup.
Galway WFC became the first team to secure their place in the semi-finals of this season’s Continental Tyres Women’s National League Cup.
Don O’Riordan’s team wrapped up a 4-1 victory over Peamount United in Group B to advance to the final four, where they must wait to discover who their opponents will be.
Peamount could still join them in the latter rounds as they sit on four points alongside Shelbourne Ladies, who had their game with Castlebar Celtic postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Galway, though, did their job thanks to goals from Aislinn Meaney (2), Jessica Nolan, and Savannah McCarthy, while Claire Kinsella was on target for Peamount in Greenogue.
In Group A, UCD Waves recored a 4-1 triumph over Kilkenny United WFC with Chloe Mustaki, Jetta Berrill (2), and Aine O’Gorman all scoring with Jenny Clifford netting for the visitors.
The other game in that group saw Wexford Youths WFC overpower Cork City WFC courtesy of finishes from Edel Kennedy, Claire O’Riordan, Linda Douglas, Becky Cassin (2), and Kylie Murphy.
Wexford moved onto six points following that win, while UCD and Cork have three points each – all three teams must keep fighting to make it through to the next stage of the competition.
