Match Report

Leaders Peamount draw with ninth placed Bohs

This Dublin derby yielded fireworks in PRL Park with WNL leaders Peamount United drawing 1-1 with ninth place Bohemians.

Lisa Murphy drew blood first for The Gypsies in the first half, but it was a penalty at the boot of Stephanie Roche that ensured the sides shared the spoils.

It will feel as if it is two points dropped for James O’Callaghan’s women given the title race thickens with main rivals Shelbourne, although for Bohs the result was hard earned but fair and they will hope they can carry the momentum into their upcoming clashes.

Against the run of play it was Bohs who hit the back of the net first. Reflective of their season so far, they proved their tenacity from corner kicks to find Murphy in the box who then looped the ball over Niamh Reid Burke and into the bottom right of the goal in the 26th minute.

Dora Gorman and Kira Bates Crosbie had a dangerous collision of heads around the 40th minute, forcing United into replacing Gorman with Lauren Kelly just before halftime.

It remained 1-0 all the way until the break, with the next goal not surfacing until the 62nd minute. There Murphy again found herself amid the action, fouling Roche in the box with a sliding tackle and inflicting a penalty into the game as a result.

The Puskas goal nominated player then converted her own chance from the spot, equalising the match at 1-1 with plenty of time remaining.

Jetta Berrill entered the fray for Peas in the 58th minute in replace of Alannah McEvoy and enjoyed a few half chances, although couldn’t get the ball fully under control to get a proper shot off.

A winner wasn’t to come to fruition however.  The final whistle concluded the affair at 1-1 despite Peamount’s late push, the highlight of which saw Roche throw a superb effort towards goal but a brilliant save by Rachael Kelly kept it out.

Next up Peas battle it out with reigning champions Shelbourne, while the north Dublin outfit aspire to continue their form versus Treaty United.

  • The last time the Gypsies and Peas met was in round 22 of last year. There, last year’s runner ups put three goals past Bohs and secured them the win, thanks to strikes from Stephanie Roche, Tiegan Ruddy and Karen Duggan.

  • Their latest match concluded in a 3-0 defeat in Dalymount, where Jenna Slattery, Emma Starr and Shauna Brennan dazzled for the Alan Murphy managed Galway WFC. In more positive news however, Abbi Brophy’s move to right back has been a godsend for the north Dublin team as she’s pulled off 63 interceptions so far in the 2022 season.

  • Bohs on the other hand find themselves at ninth in the table after the eighth series, on five points. This total is one behind Cork City on six but five ahead of their closest chaser, Treaty United, who are yet to pick up a point this season.

  • The Girls in Green are the most dominant team in the league in nearly every attacking category with 148 shots on goal, 154 crosses, 159 touches in the penalty area and 49 corners so far this year. These along with their impeccable goals and assist record sees them lead the table on 18 points, closely followed by big rivals Shelbourne on the same points accumulation.

  • James O’Callaghan’s side are coming in red hot to this one, beating Cork City 8-1 in their most recent outing. Their captain Aine O’Gorman put on a stellar performance where she netted five goals, with the remainder bagged by Karen Duggan, Stephanie Roche and Alanna McEvoy.

  • Top of the league Peamount United welcome ninth place Bohemians to PRL Park this afternoon, with kick off at 1pm. My name is Alanna Cunnane and I'll be bringing you today's match commentary!
