89'

O'Sullivan stops a long-range effort from Lucy McCartan.

80'

Almost a spectacular introduction for Becky Watkins as she's played in by Roche but she loses her footing at the vital moment.

79'

Substitution

Becky Watkins (in) - Eleanor Ryan Doyle (out) (Peamount United).

79'

Substitution

Sadbh Doyle (in) - Dearbhaile Beirne (out) (Peamount United).

76'

GOAL!

Aine O'Gorman (Peamount United) scores. Captain Aine O'Gorman makes it three from close range, although on first glance she looked offside from Roche's pass.

74'

Roche really wants that hat-trick and she has her chance after being put into space by O'Gorman, but it's another good stop from Maria O'Sullivan to deny her. From the resulting corner, Roche glances wide.

73'

City break through Noonan and she tries to play in substitute Shine, only for Lauryn O'Callaghan to intervene at the vital moment to cut out the pass.

72'

Substitution

Laura Shine (in) - Christina Dring (out) (Cork City Women's FC).

71'

City's pressing has been excellent all game and it requires some nice footwork from Reid-Burke to get herself out of a spot.

69'

Substitution

Megan Smyth-Lynch (in) - Alannah McEvoy (out) (Peamount United).

68'

O'Sullivan called into two fine saves in quick success, first clawing away McEvoy's effort from the right and then getting up to catch Karen Duggan's curled shot from the opposite side.

66'

City appeal for handball as Noonan looks to clip the ball through to Dring, but nothing is given and the follow-up pass is overhit.

64'

Great tackle from Farrelly stops Liston in her tracks, and with it another City attack.

62'

O'Gorman lines up a free kick from right on the edge of the box but it's saved comfortably by O'Sullivan.

60'

Stephanie Roche in for a hat-trick as she dispossesses Danielle Burke but the defender gets back just in time to deflect her shot behind.

57'

Huge chance for Cork to get back into it as Christina Dring is one on one with Reid-Burke, but she snatches at her effort and puts it wide.

57'

Substitution

Katie McCarthy (in) - Lauren Egbuloniu (out) (Cork City Women's FC).

56'

Lucy McCartan crosses from the right but it's straight into the arms of O'Sullivan.

55'

And so close to a third for Peamount as Roche finds McEvoy in the box and she guides the ball first-time inches past the post.

52'

GOAL!

Stephanie Roche (Peamount United) scores. And that might be that as Alannah McEvoy is denied from close range by Ciara McNamara but is able to tee up Roche to bag her second with a calm finish.

51'

Nice idea from Roche to clip it over the top for O'Gorman but she gets too much on her pass.

47'

How will City respond to that? They've done well to contain Peamount so far but now they will have to show a bit more attacking intent to get back in the game.

46'

GOAL!

Stephanie Roche (Peamount United) scores. Peas hit the front within a minute of the restart. Lovely reverse pass from Lucy McCartan finds Steph Roche and she squeezes a shot in the bottom corner from a tight angle.

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Cork City Women's FC and Peamount United has started.

45' + 2'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Cork City Women's FC and Peamount United.

45'

Acrobatic effort from McCartan as she meets McEvoy's cross in the box but, fortunately for the Cork goalkeeper, her volley is straight at O'Sullivan.

44'

Free kick from the left almost finds the head of Farrelly but it's turned behind by a Cork player.. From the resulting corner, Lucy McCartan can't get her shot away and the danger is cleared.

40'

Karen Duggan is next to have a go after O'Gorman misses her kick in the box, but her 20-yarder flies wide of the target.

39'

Peas piling on the pressure now as Ryan Doyle's drilled cross is well caught by O'Sullivan.

37'

Nice McGeady spin on the touchline from Roche but she can't keep control of the ball and Cork pour forward, but again strong defending from Farrelly and Walsh ensures there's no way through.

36'

Good spell this for Peamount and the latest chance falls to Claire Walsh from a corner at the back post but she can't steer her header on target.

34'

Another decent chance for Peamount as O'Gorman, who has swapped wings with McEvoy, digs out a cross and Ryan Doyle can only glance it straight at  O'Sullivan.

29'

Deirbhaile Beirne swings in a cross right-footed from deep on the left flank but it sails straight into the arms of Maria O'Sullivan.

28'

Great tackle from Lauryn O'Callaghan as Sophie Liston looks to break into the box - needed to be perfectly timed and it was.

27'

Peamount have their tails up now and Alannah McEvoy just fails to find Eleanor Ryan Doyle with a through-ball that would have opened up the Cork City defence.

27'

26'

Big chance for Peamount as Stephanie Roche blocks down a clearance fropm Danielle Burke and space opens up for Aine O'Gorman to shoot, but the league's top scorer curls her effort high and wide. That was the first proper chance of the game.

25'

Unparliamentary language there from Karen Duggan as she miscues a pass out of play..

24'

Cork's pressing putting Peas into difficulty again and Reid-Burke is forced into another rushed clearance, this time straight to Becky Cassin, but they can't do anything with it.

20'

Loveky turn from Lauren Egbuloniu to get away from Walsh but the defender recovers well to see off the danger.

17'

Eabha O'Mahony swings in the free kick from the right touchline but it's overhit and Peamount will have the goal kick.

15'

Cork causing Peamount some problems with the high press and a loose clearance from Niamh Reid-Burke is compounded with a foul by Farrell on Sophie Liston, who will need a bit of attention on the touchline.

11'

Aine O'Gorma picks off a pass out of defence and looks to have put Ciara McNamara under pressure but she's judged to have handled the ball by referee Claire Purcell.

6'

Plenty of possession for the champions so far but they're yet to open up a real chance. Cagey opening so far.

5'

A loose pass out of defence from Niamh Farrelly is cut out by Noonan, but Christina Dring can't take advantage and is dispossessed.

4'

GAME ON!

The game between Cork City Women's FC and Peamount United has kicked off.

Saoirse Noonan tries to thread a pass through for Lauren Egbuloniu, but it's well cut-out by Claire Walsh.
