Shelbourne stumbles as Roche’s hat-trick helps Peamount to comprehensive victory

JESS LAWLER’S SECOND half-time goal proved the difference at Tolka Park as Wexford Youths cruised to a 1-0 victory over Shelbourne.

Lawler was rewarded for her persistence after chasing a long ball and blocking Amanda Budden’s clearance attempt. The ball bounced into the net to close the gap at the top of the board.

In the first half Jess Ziu came close to the goal but her effort into the top corner was well saved by Wexford’s Maeve Williams.

Elsewhere, a Stephanie Roche hat-trick helped Peamount United to a convincing 5-0 victory over Sligo Rovers. Roche scored with a header, an excellent first from the left foot and from the penalty spot. Alannah McEvoy and Tara O’Hanlon also scored in this game.

He finished all levels at Fahy’s Field as Galway WFC and Athlone Town played out a goalless draw.
