Raheny United thumped Cork 9-0

Bus Éireann Women's National League champions Raheny United continued their awesome start to the new campaign when they recorded a 9-0 away win over Cork Women's FC.

Under the guidance of new boss Terry Eviston, the Dublin side produced a remarkable second-half display to rattle the home side and build on their opening day four-goal haul against DLR Waves.

Katie McCabe put the visitors ahead in the eighth minute and Siobhan Killeen made it 2-0 in the 26th.

The north Dublin side were in rampant mood after the break when Rebecca Creagh made it 3-0 just after the break and it became four when Siobhan Killeen netted in the 55th minute.

Cork could not stop the onslaught and further goals from Noelle Murray in the 65th minute, Creagh in the 70th, Pearl Slattery in the 72nd minute, Caroline Thorpe in the 75th and former Cork striker Claire Shine in the last minute wrapped up a very lopsided encounter.

Elsewhere, Peamount United got their season off to a solid start with a 2-0 home victory over Castlebar Celtic. An own goal from Nicole Fowley in the 32nd minute was all the separated the sides at the break and Sara Lawlor wrapped up the three points for the Peas in the 72nd minute.

DLR Waves recorded their first victory over the season after coming out on top in a five-goal thriller against Galway WFC at Jackson Park.

Orlagh Nolan had opened the scoring in the eighth minute but Sinead Taylor levelled matters in the 24th minute. Sylvia Gee fired DLR back in front in the 38th minute and the home side took control when they went 3-1 ahead two minutes into the second half.

Taylor scored again in the 51st minute but couldn't help the visitors to an equalizer.

Wexford Youths continued their unbeaten start to the new season when they beat Shamrock Rovers at Ferrycarrig Park. Two goals in three minutes early in the second half gave the Model County side the points with Edel Kennedy and Katie McCarthy scoring in the 57th and 59th minutes.
