Bohemians and DLR Waves came to a 0-0 deadlock at Dalymount this evening in the WNL with neither side able to capitalise on good chances in front of goal.
Both sides chances in each half but couldn't beat the opposing keeper. Late chances from Danielle Murray for Bohs and Katie Malone for DLR went abegging to see the game to a 0-0 draw.
Bohs got off to a good start to the game and controlled play in the early moments.
Kira Bates Crosbie in particular posed a threat for the Gypsies and had a good battle with DLR's Niamh Keogh coming in from the right flank.
Crosbie offered an outball for her side all game and the winger created the first real chance of the game when she sent a dangerous cross into the DLR box.
The ball worked its way to Isobel Finnegan who placed her shot low and Waves' keeper Eve Bandana was forced to make an excellent diving save to her left.
The visitors had also worked their way into proceedings and they too had success from the right for much of the half.
Avril Brierley was the Waves' main threat and she came close to scoring the opener on 8 minutes but blazed over at the far post from a tight angle. The forward had another chance on 16 minutes but dragged her shot just left of the far post.
Lisa Murphy headed over for Bohs in the final big chance of the half, play becoming scrappy as neither team could get the upper hand and went into the break level.
The visitors came out determined to get ahead and put Bohemians under plenty of pressure but just couldn't create any clear chances despite their dominance.
The Gypsies came back into things around the hour mark.
Striker Sinead Taylor had two shots from distance which didn't trouble the DLR keeper but she linked up well with substitute Fiona Ryan, who had two golden chances for the home side.
One on one with DLR goalie Bandana, Ryan couldn't make decent contact the first time round while she was just blocked down later on in similar opportunity.
At the other end, a powerful Mia Dodd volley was saved by Bohs' Rachael Kelly to keep her side afloat.
Danielle Murray chose to shoot at the DLR goal when she had three teammates in the box only to hit the side netting in the games' final stages of normal time while Rachael Kelly made another fantastic save on Waves' Katie Malone to keep things all square.
Four minutes of injury time wasn't enough for Bohemians or DLR to go one better and finally take the lead and it ended honours even at Dalymount.
