Peamount’s experience showed in this top-of-the-table clash as they held off a DLR Waves’ second half fight-back to ensure their 100 per cent record remained intact with a 3-2 win. 

The 2020 champions stunned the Waves with two early goals. Tiegan Ruddy’s corner  was headed in by Erin McLaughlin inside the opening 10 minutes. 

Moments later, Ruddy once again was the provider and played in Lauren Kelly who doubled the lead.

Aine O’Gorman, as she often does, chipped in with a goal to make it 3-0 at half-time. But Waves hit back in the second period with Mia Dodd’s long-range effort finding it’s way into the net.  The visitors kept the pressure on and eventually got a second through a screamer from Oleta Griffin.

Ultimately Peamount used their know-how to close out the game against a battling Waves to remain top of the league.

Bohs were the only away side to win this week, as they saw off a hard-working Sligo 3-1.

Sinead Taylor doubled the away side’s lead and she added a second later on as The Gypsies hit their groove. Late in the game Emma Hansberry scored a consolation free-kick fro Sligo. 

Last seasons champions Shelbourne were dominant at Tolka Park in a 7-0 win over Cork City .

The first of the Reds goals came in the 14th minute from Shauna Fox and they got their second shortly after, also from a corner, this time Noelle Murray getting on the scoresheet. Katie O’Dowd added the seventh in added time.
