Peamount United extended their lead at the top of the WNL table with a 4-0 win over struggling Galway at Greenogue, one of the 4pm kick-offs on Saturday.

There was no fairy-tale beginning for new Galway boss Stephen Lally in his first game in charge as goals from Claire Walsh, Della Doherty and a brace from Eleanor Ryan-Doyle won the game for James O’Callaghan’s side, their 15th WNL win in a row.

Ryan-Doyle’s two goals extend her lead at the top of the goalscoring charts for the season with ten goals so far this campaign.

At the same time, Bohemians were in Lissywollen where they claimed a 3-2 victory over Athlone Town to move into 5th place in the League.

Erica Burke fired the visitors in front with a brace in the first half after the side had initially gone behind courtesy of a Katelyn Keogh goal for Athlone Town in the eighth minute.

Roisin Molloy equalised for the home side midway through the second half but Chloe Darby’s third goal of the season was enough to seal the three points for the visitors.

DLR Waves returned to winning ways when they ran out 5-0 winners over Treaty United at Jackman Park on Sunday afternoon.

Ciara Maher opened the scoring for the visitors, with her first goal of the season, with Carla McManus and Katie Malone netting two more for Waves before halftime.

Shauna Carroll scored in the second half with Carla McManus doubling her own tally for the afternoon to round out the scoring.
