WEXFORD YOUTHS REMAIN on track for a successful defence of the FAI Women’s Cup after easing to victory in today’s quarter-final against DWSL Premier League outfit TEK United.

Shelbourne, Galway and last year’s runners-up Peamount United will also be in the hat for the semi-final draw following their respective victories this afternoon.

Wexford were 3-0 up at half-time in Stradbrook thanks to goals from Edel Kennedy, Rianna Jarrett and Lauren Kelly.

Aisling Frawley increased the holders’ lead in the second half, before Shauna Peare headed home a consolation goal for the Dublin side.

Peamount had a five-goal cushion at the midway point of their clash with Limerick at Markets Field. Naima Chemaou, Eleanor Ryan-Doyle, Louise Corrigan, Claire Walsh and Aine O’Gorman were all on target for the visitors, with Cara Griffin pulling a goal back in a 5-1 defeat for Limerick.

Shelbourne came from behind to advance at the expense of 2017 winners Cork City, who went 2-1 up through goals from Christina Dring and Eabha O’Mahony after Rebecca Cooke had given Shels an early lead at Bishopstown.
