National underage leagues continue

It was another busy weekend of action

Isabelle Fitzpatrick continues to impress for Galway WFC U17s.

Isabelle Fitzpatrick continues to impress for Galway WFC U17s.

Xavi Vazquez's particularly promising Galway United U14 outfit remain unbeaten following a 0-0 draw with a highly regarded St Patrick's Athletic.

United, who have only conceded one goal in four matches, were solid defensively against the Saints in Dublin on Saturday.

Both teams carved chances with United goalkeeper MacDara Scanlon assured, while Donnacha Sammon and Kyle Fitzgerald, involved in a Republic of Ireland underage training squad last week, also showed glimpses of their ability.

Anthony O'Neill's U15s have stitched a four match sequence without defeat together too.

A scoreless draw with Pat's illustrates United's improvement at that level. On Thursday Declan Daly scored during a 1-1 draw away to Dundalk at Oriel Park.

Another solid display was produced by Martin Devlin's U17s, who drew with Treaty United on Saturday.

A smashing Bohemians U19 side proved too strong for United on Saturday.

Despite that loss, Brendan O'Connor's charges will be relatively satisfied with how the campaign is unfolding as four victories from six matches have been chalked up.

There was disappointment for Galway WFC U19s who fielded a strong team away to Cork City, but still suffered a 2-1 reversal.

Anna Fahey notched her sixth goal in the last four games for Phil Trill's squad.

Isabelle Fitzpatrick struck her fifth of the year for Galway WFC U17s, who were overpowered 1-2 by Shamrock Rovers at Dangan on Saturday.

Galway host Bohemians at that level this weekend.
