The Wexford Youths Women’s team were victorious today…
This evening, the Wexford Youth Women’s side won the Evoke.ie FAI Women’s Cup final.
The games ended 3-1 in favour of Wexford Youths Women’s team as they defeated 2021 League champions, Shelbourne.
Wexford took the lead as Lynn Marie Grant scored the opener in the first half. Seven minutes later, the Shels equalised courtesy of a goal from Ciara Grant.
Four minutes into the second-half, Wexford sharpshooter, Kylie Murphy, continued her goal scoring run as she slotted the ball into the net once again today.
Murphy has been a revelation for the Wexford Youths Women’s team since she moved from midfield into attack, netting her 16th goal of the season this evening.
The third and final Wexford Youths goal came from Edel Kennedy, and Wexford kept the best ’til last. Arguably, the pick of the goals came from Carnew native, Edel Kennedy, in the second-half as she struck the ball in from outside of the box on a half-volley.
Seventeen-year-old Kilkenny native, Ellen Molloy, received the player of the match award.
It’s now the fourth time that the Wexford Youths Women’s team have won the FAI Women’s Cup final, previously capturing the trophy in 2015, 2018, and in 2019.
