Aine O'Gorman snatched a dramatic last-gasp injury-time winner for Peamount United against Wexford Youths to clinch their place in the Bus Éireann Women’s National League Cup semi-finals.

Extra-time loomed, but Peamount struck in the dying seconds to claim a narrow victory at the end of a gripping game.

It was tight and tense at Greenogue during a fiercely contested clash involving the top two in the League and there was little between the teams.

Solene Barbance failed to convert a decent chance for Peamount on the half hour mark, but Wexford were causing the locals problems too.

Wexford came within a whisker of taking a 68th minute lead, but Peamount custodian Monica McGuirk reacted sharply to deny Krista Minto.

It remained interesting until the end with O'Gorman landing the decisive blow as Peamount prevailed.

Elsewhere, Castlebar Celtic staged a determined second half fight back to claim a smashing away win Leeside.

Cork Women's FC shaded a lively first half and Eimear Knightly netted a delightful goal on the stroke of half-time.

Despite the concession, Castlebar improved after the restart and Johnny Morris-Burke's side were back on terms in the 69th minute.

Shauna Jackson provided the finish to equalise and then three minutes later the visitors hit the front with a neat second goal.

On this occasion it was Sara McGeough, who supplied the final touch for Castlebar, who were forced to defend in resolute fashion from then on.

But that is exactly what Castlebar did and the Mayo outfit held out for a morale boosting road success.

Results: 

Peamount United 1-0 Wexford Youths 
Cork Women's FC 1-2 Castlebar Celtic
