Five-tastic Galway show the leaders how it’s done
Anecto sponsored Galway Women’s FC scored a stunning 5-1 victory against the league leaders!
After losing to bottom of the table Kilkenny United the previous week, and with some influential players missing, one could be forgiven for expecting Galway WFC to have trouble with league leaders Peamount United when they hosted them at Eamonn Deacy Park on Saturday 15 July.
But with courage and skill, Galway WFC – to whom Anecto have been a sponsor since their inception in 2012 – showed their mettle and scored one of the greatest victories in their history when they blasted five past the visitors.
Aoife Brennan started the rout after blasting a penalty past Peamount keeper Naoisha McAloon who had brought her down in the box. Soon after the score was even again when Sarah McKevitt equalised for the visitors.
That however would be the best part of Peamount’s day as the Galway women battled on to victory.
A save by Tina Hughes just before half time had Galway hearts in mouths but was deftly deflected by the keeper to keep things all square.
It was in the 56th minute when the Galwegians started to pull away. An excellent Grainne Barrett corner sailed past all players in the box to nestle itself inside the far post and make the game 2-1.
Jennifer Byrne (the current Offaly Rose) was next on the score sheet with a shot inside the box and two minutes later Aoife Brennan grabbed her second with a shot from 10 yards out.
The cherry on the cake was the final goal from Lynsey McKey. A sublime turn from Lisa Casserly released McKey down the left wing and she rewarded the great service with a rocket into the top right corner from the edge of the box.
Cork City are next and with such an absolute victory, Galway WFC will be hoping to bring that momentum with them to the rebel county. Good luck Galway!
