REBECCA CREAGH BAGGED a second-half hat-trick on Saturday afternoon as Shelbourne made it two wins from two in the Women’s National League against Limerick.

The Munster side went into the interval level-pegging at Tolka Park, however three goals in the space of 24 minutes from forward Creagh saw the Reds make sure of the three points — Alex Kavanagh and Fiona Donnelly also on target during the 5-0 win.

DLR Waves got their campaign up and running with a 2-0 victory against Kilkenny United.

The Dubliners were pegged back against champions Wexford Youths on the opening weekend of the new season last Saturday, but goals from Leanne Payne and Nadine Clare saw Waves secure their opening win of 2019.
