Peamount United secured their fourth win of the season on Sunday afternoon with a 3-0 over Treaty United at Jackman Park.

Niall Connolly’s young Treaty side kept Peas scoreless until the 51st minute when Sadbh Doyle scored a wonderful long range effort to put the current WNL Champions in front.

Goals from Aine O’Gorman and Eleanor Ryan-Doyle followed in quick succession in the 65th and 68th minutes to seal the points for United and keep them top of the table at the end of this game week.

Carla McManus caused some stress for the home side with a cracking long range goal in the 83rd minute but Noel King’s side held out to claim their third win of the season.

Wexford Youths had a huge win over Galway on Saturday with Tom Elmes’ side putting five goals past the Tribeswomen at Ferrycarrig Park.

Sinead Taylor, Ellen Molloy and Aisling Frawley each got on the scoresheet in the second half to send Galway back home after suffering their second defeat of the season.

Athlone Town and Cork City are still looking for their first wins of the season after the sides drew 2-2 at Lissywoolen on Saturday evening.

The Rebels took the lead again in the 61st minute through Christina Dring only to concede again in the 82nd minute when Melissa O’Kane got on the end of an Emma Donohue free-kick.
