An early Méabh de Búrca penalty gave Galway a first-half lead, but five minutes after the break, Waves equalised through Sophie O’Donoghue.

It was tightly contested thereafter, with Aoife Thompson ultimately scoring an 84th minute winner, a result which sees Galway close in on third-place Wexford Youths.
