Galway WFC were unlucky not to get something out of their clash with Raheny United, going down 2-1 to in Morton Stadium, Santry, on Sunday.
The reigning champions have moved five points clear of nearest rivals Peamount United, who are next up for Galway WFC when they host them in Eamonn Deacy Park on April 13 in their last home game of the season. Indeed a victory for Galway WFC against the Peas would all but hand the title to Raheny.
Galway WFC went ahead thanks to a Sinéad Taylor goal in the 25th minute. This brings the WNL top scorers’ tally for the season to 20. However only a minute after conceding the opening goal, Raheny were back on level terms thanks to Rebecca Creagh in the penalty area.
The hosts completed the turnaround in the fourth minute of added time at the end of the first half with a well-taken goal courtesy of Niamh Walsh.
Galway WFC pushed on in the second half, changing to a 4-3-3 formation, but they could not add an equalising goal.
