Wexford FC ⚽️ U19 | Goal number four of the season for @WexfordFC Kieran Murphy in today's 2-2 draw with @CobhRamblersFC at St… https://t.co/AqfzR1XWng

Wexford Youths Women advanced to the semi finals of the WNL League Cup with a 2-1 win over Cork City Women in Bishopstown on Sunday. Having met Cork just 10 days previously in the League, it was another tough encounter which took a stoppage time winner to separate the teams. Manager Tom Elmes made five changes to the team that started last week with Ciamh Dollard, Ciara Delaney, Becky Cassin, Becky Conroy and Rianna Jarrett lining up in place of Sophie Lenehan, Amy Walsh, Kylie Murphy, Edel Kennedy and Claire O'Riordan. Nicola Sinnott took over the captains armband in place of Kylie Murphy.

In an even first half with few chances, Cork took the lead on the half hour with Michelle O'Driscoll firing low to Dollards right for the opening goal. It wasn't till the second half till Wexford began to show their dominance and Rianna Jarrett in particular posed huge problems for the Leesiders. It took some fine saves from Budden in the Cork goal to prevent Youths from equalising before Orlaith Conlon headed in from a corner in the 51st minute. Wexford pushed on hard for the winner but had to wait till the 91st minute when Claire O'Riordan (who replaced Orla Casey) found the net after a defensive mix up for Cork which ensured Wexford advanced to the semis.

Wexford Youths Women: Ciamh Dollard, Ciara Delaney (Edel Kennedy 45), Nicola Sinnott (c), Lauren Dwyer, Orlaith Conlon, Becky Cassin, Becky Conroy, Aisling Frawley, Orla Casey (Claire O'Riordan 70), Rianna Jarrett and Aoibhin Webb (Amy Walsh 82).  Subs Not Used: Sophie Lenehan, Katrina Parrock, Clionagh Ni Shi and Rachel Hutchinson.
