Wexford Youths Women continued their unbeaten start to the WNL season on Saturday as they ran out 2-1 winners against Galway WFC at Eamonn Deacy Park. Aisling Frawley and Orla Casey were the only changes to the starting line up that drew with Peamount United seven days earlier replacing Aoibhin Webb and Rianna Jarrett.

After an even opening, running onto a Becky Conroy through ball, Frawley struck from just inside the box after 11 minutes to give Youths the lead although Galway felt there was a hint of offside about it. On 55 minutes Galway were even with Aislinn Meaney converting from just inside the box to make for a tense last half hour. Wexford went up a gear after that and were the better side and created numerous good chances till Rianna Jarrett (who replaced Conroy on 50 mins) nodded in from an Aoibhin Webb (who replaced Frawley on 71 mins) corner to retake the lead with 15 to go. Jarrett was later denied twice with fine shots by Hughes in the Galway goal to further increase the lead late on but Youths came away from the west with a valuable three points on their first League away trip of the 2018 season.

Wexford Youths Women:  Sophie Lenehan, Nicola Sinnott, Lauren Dwyer, Orlaith Conlon, Amy Walsh, Edel Kennedy, Becky Conroy (Rianna Jarrett 50), Aisling Frawley (Aoibhin Webb 71), Kylie Murphy (c), Claire O'Riordan (Becky Cassin 91) and Orla Casey.  Subs Not Used:  Katrina Parrock, Ciara Delaney, Cliodhna Ni Shi and Ciamh Dollard.
