Curracloe United 4, Wexford Youths 3: The clash of these teams in the Leinster Under-18 Cup quarter-final had been awaited for a long time and it was a game that was definitely worth the wait before the home side eventually progressed to a semi-final meeting with Shelburne F.C.
Youths led 2-0 and then 3-2 but Curracloe had the final say with two late goals to come out on top by the odd goal in seven.
Britney Conroy, Kate Hendrick and Aideen Byrne were on target for Youths but two goals each from Siobhán Doolan and Rianna Cullen saw Curracloe through.
All Blacks 0, St. Leonards 0: There was no goals but plenty of excitement in Division 1 as these two well-matched sides produced a hard-fought draw which gives both a chance of catching the teams above them and avoiding the drop to Division 2A.
Both sides created chances but defences and goalkeepers dominated to keep the forwards at bay.
Although both might feel they did enough to take all three points, a draw was probably the fairest result in the end.
With the withdrawal of various teams from the higher divisions in the women's league, the process of promotion and relegation in all the divisions has been amended to build back up the top two divisions.
As a result, only one team will be relegated from the Premier while two will be promoted from Division 1 for next season.
Only one team will also be relegated from Division 1 while three will be promoted from Division 2A and four will be promoted from Division 2B, with only one being relegated from 2A to 2B.
