Match Report

Cronin earns Athlone draw with Treaty

Treaty United and Athlone Town played out an entertaining contest, but ultimately the sides shared the spoils in this 2-2 draw in the Womens National League at Jackman Park.

It was the home side who got on the scoresheet first against the run of play a great counter attack goal in the 31st Minute by Aoife Cronin after an error at the back let her in to slot the ball away.

Athlone kept pushing for their goal and it came in added time 47 minutes into the first half Katelyn Keogh bagging the equaliser.

An end to end second half subsequently followed, with both clubs attacking well. The town grabbed their second goal after a fine touch and finish by Melissa O’Kane with 66 minutes gone.

The games attacking pace continued with the Limerick outfit scoring late on again Aoife Cronin with her second to level the match.

Athlone Town were the better side early on with good efforts testing Mitchell in the Treaty United net. 

The opening passage of play was great, with fluid attacks from both sides. Athlone's Roisin Molloy struck the ball over the crossbar after a brilliant run; being one of the best efforts. 

The Town had created enough to be in front but it was their defence that let them down. A long ball up the pitch fell to Cronin and she awkwardly squeezed in between two Athlone defenders, before striking the ball into the back of the net. 

Athlone fought for an equaliser and they got just that before the stroke of half-time, following great play down the left hand side with the ball squared to Keogh in the box found the back of the net. Sides level at the break. 

The second half was much like the first; this time Athlone being more clinical in their attacks holding onto possession well. This possession proved to be vital as a cross was put in. Athlone had numbers in the box and as the ball fell to O’Kane in the 66th minute she controlled it wonderfully and finished excellently. 

Late subs impacted this game. With United adding four new players late in the game their energy proved to help them in the tie, as late on in the 85th minute Cronin got her brace; after a wonderful ball from sub Esra Kangal. 

The sides played out a brilliant entertaining game and on reflection both clubs will be happy with the result.
