Galway WFC back in the capital for another test

alway return to Dublin for the second of their back-to-back fixtures, and the task does not get any easier.

Last weekend they were overpowered by Shelbourne, losing 5-1, and on Sunday they face current league leaders UCD Waves.

However there is some good news with the injured Keara Cormican expected to be available for the clash. Cormican, who was a rock at centre half last season, has been out since the beginning of this season.

Last weekend Galway Women’s FC travelled to Morton Stadium where the reigning champions Shelbourne had too much firepower, running out 5-1 winners.

The game was just six minutes old when Roma McLoughlin put her side in front - her strike from 25 yards sailing over Tina Hughes in the Galway goal.

Galway had a number of chances to equalise, both from play and some excellent set piece deliveries, but Shels grabbed the second goal on the stroke of half time when Siobhan Killeen got onto a long ball and lobbed the advancing Hughes.

Galway were rewarded for a dominant opening 15 minutes of the second half when Sinead Taylor scored in her first game since re-signing for Galway.

However the game turned back in Shels' favour when Kate Maloney fire homed in the 66th minute.

Galway continued to battle, but conceded goals in the 76th and 83rd minutes.

Galway WFC: Tina Hughes, Aoife Walsh (Rachel Baynes ), Alina Cheatham, Shauna Fox, Jenny Byrne, Méabh De Búrca (c ), Tessa Mullins, Lisa Casserly, Sadbh Doyle, Sinead Taylor (Jenny Chambers ), Lynsey McKey (Grainne Barrett )
