North End United 4, Corach Ramblers 2: The Wexford town side opened their league campaign with a win when they overcame Corach Ramblers in an exciting fast-paced encounter.

Sara Byrne and Triona Sinnott were on target for Ramblers while Shauna Carley (two), Martina Pender and Lauren Roche all scored for the winners.

Moyne Rangers 1, St. Leonards 3: St. Leonards are sitting joint top of the table after this win away to a Moyne side who have all the talent but are finding it difficult to kick-start their season.

Nicola Davitt scored for Rangers but goals from Alex Holden, Ciara Ryan and Fiona Ryan gave the visitors all three points, continuing their good start to the season.

Goals from Shannon Doyle (two), Kayleigh Shannon (two) and Aoibheann Ryan gave the home side the win.

Lauren Barry was the heroine for the home side, scoring a hat-trick with one goal in the first-half and two in the second to move her side top of the table.

Women's Division 3

Holly Johnson scored one while Sinéad Ronan scored an impressive tally of four to give Rovers victory.

Tombrack United 1, Stoney L.F.C. 1: This game seemed to be heading for a scoreless draw between two very hard-working sides until Sarah Merrigan put Tombrack ahead in the 90th minute, but Chloe Foxe levelled 30 seconds later.

Both sides were disappointed they didn't win the game but both probably were content with a point in the end.

Fastnet Rovers 1, Cushinstown A.F.C. 2: Cushinstown are off to a flying start in the league and are currently top of division three after this win over Fastnet Rovers.

Amie Gaffney and Helen Power were both on target for the visitors while Geraldine Monaghan scored for Rovers
