WNL: Decisive win for Bohs over Treaty

Bohs continued their good momentum with a decisive 4-0 victory over the ever-struggling Treaty United in Limerick this evening.

The visitors opened scoring early on courtesy of a fantastic Isobel Finnegan lob while a Sinead Taylor volley put them 2-0 up going into the break.

Taylor added another on 50 minutes while Lara Phipps got Bohs' fourth in the closing stages to hand Treaty their second consecutive 4-0 home defeat.

After earning a big point away to Peamount last week, today's win sees the Gypsies up to seventh in the WNL as United, who have yet to score a goal at the Markets Field, remain firmly lodged to the bottom of the division.

Despite their form, Treaty started the better, a quality move in the opening minutes starting from a  a swift Jesse Mendez turn in midfield saw the ball worked up to Michaela Lawrence, who just couldn't beat her marker to get a shot away.

That was as good as it got for the Shannon-siders though, as they found themselves trailing Bohemians by a goal a minute later after Isobel Finnegan had spotted Treaty 'keeper Trish Fennelly off her line. Finnegan launched a perfectly weighted effort from some distance to lob Fennelly and it dropped under the bar to put the Gypsies a goal up on seven minutes.

It was all Bohs from then on, with Bronagh Kane and Lisa Murphy both attempting further long-range efforts as they sensed the Treaty 'keeper might be done again.

Although fullback Amy Madden looked bright, Treaty's defending was lacklustre and allowed Bohs plenty of space. When Treaty failed to deal with a corner on 15 minutes, Sinead Taylor had time to volley in the visitor's second goal after the ball fell nicely to her.

Further attempts followed for the remainder of the half  as Treaty struggled to get a grip on affairs. A serious-looking injury to goal-scorer Isobel Finnegan before the break put a dampener on proceedings and she did not reappear for the second-half.

Despite that blow, Bohs flew out of the traps after the break, Sinead Taylor getting her second of the game on 50 minutes to kill any hope that remained in Treaty.

The North-Dublin side looked a class above their opponents as they passed around the Mid-Westerners, and Trish Fennelly was forced to make several saves to stop the deficit growing.

Her opposite number, Rachael Kelly, had little to do all game and her only real save came easy after a curling effort by Michaela Lawrence on 67 minutes.

There was no let up after Sinead Taylor was replaced, Lara Phipps popping up immediately to make it four-nil to Bohemians with eight minutes remaining, ensuring her side cruised to their second win of the season while Treaty fell to yet another defeat.
