WNL: Kilkenny Utd 1-1 CCFC

Cork City and Kilkenny United played out a 1-1 draw at United Park, Thomastown in their latest Só Hotels Women’s National League match on Sunday.

The first half of the game was defined by penalties at either end, City took the lead in the 18th minute as they were awarded a penalty, Eabha O’Mahony stepped up and put away the spot kick to give City the early advantage. However at the other end less than 10 minutes later in the 27th minute the referee awarded the home side a penalty, Nicole Plunkett stepping up to put away it away levelling the game. City goalkeeper Abby McCarthy had to be alert in the 38th minute to make a good stop to deny Plunkett getting a second and the first half ended all square at 1-1.

The second half was a tight affair with chances at both ends, the City defence had to be alert to stop the ball going in after a goal line scramble in the 53rd minute. At the other end a great save from Kilkenny goalkeeper Amy Cahill denied Christina Dring. Kilkenny continued to press the City defence with Ann Marie Byrne firing just wide in the 65th minute while Abby McCarthy was forced into another good save to deny Plunkett again. While City looked for a winning goal they rarely were able to test Kilkenny goalkeeper Amy Cahill. City almost snatched all three points in injury time with an effort from Katie McCarthy but were denied again by Amy Cahill with a spectacular save and the game finished 1-1.

Next up for City is a Só Hotels FAI Women’s Senior Cup first round match against Wilton United next Sunday 25th of August at Pat Bowdren Park with a 2pm kick off

Cork City: Abby McCarthy, Eadaoin Lyons, Nathalie O’Brien, Sarah Jones, Ciara McNamara, Maggie Duncliffe (Danielle Burke 75’), Zara Foley, Eabha O’Mahony, Riona Crowley (Rachel O’Regan 55’), Katie McCarthy, Christina Dring.
