Ferns joins on top

Benfica makes strides with away win

East End United 3, Benfica L.F.C. 6: Benfica travelled to East End and joined Ferns at the top of the Premier Division table when they came away 6-3 winners.

Brenda Walsh (two) and Aine Lannon were on target for the home side but goals from Lisa Dower (three), Leanne O'Reilly (two) and Sharon Brown gave the impressive visitors their third win of the season.

Coolgreany Celtic 1, Killenagh Wanderers 0: The home side picked up their first win of the season when they overcame an unlucky Killenagh 1-0 in a hard-fought battle.

Steph Hallahan scored the only goal in the 88th minute when she headed to the net from a corner. Wanderers have now lost all three of their games by one goal.

Curracloe United 3, St. Leonards 0: The home side finally opened their Division 1 campaign after the previous week's abandoned game when they overcame St. Leonards 3-0 in what is shaping up to be a very tight and competitive division.

Two goals from Clara Donnelly and one from Siobhán Doolan gave this new version of Curracloe United women their first win at this level.

Adamstown F.C. 8, Kilmore United 0: Five goals from Marcella Cullen set Adamstown well on their way to three points as they overcame an understrength Kilmore side 8-0.

Niamh Kelly (two) and Sandra Thorpe added the remaining goals but the scoreline did not reflect the efforts put in by the young Kilmore side.

New Ross Town 1, All Blacks 1: In a very closely-contested division, New Ross Town have edged to the top of the table after this 1-1 draw at home to All Blacks.

Tina Colloton was on target for All Blacks but a second-half goal from Joanne Murphy earned Town a point and set up a thrilling finish.

Moyne Rangers 0, Piltown F.C. 1: Piltown made the long journey to Moyne Rangers and went away with the three points after scoring the only goal of a very tight Division 2A game.

Moyne created sufficient chances to have won but failed to score, and they were punished when Alannah Doran found the net for the visitors.

Cloughbawn A.F.C. 2, Camolin Celtic 2: These sides are in the top three and it's likely they will be both in contention at the end of the season, producing an entertaining 2-2 draw in this game.

Lisa Marie Doyle scored both goals for the home side while Katie Kehoe and Niamh O'Leary were on target for Celtic.

Rosslare Rangers 2, St. Cormac's 0: The home side moved a point clear at the top of the Division 2B table when they overcame a battling St. Cormac's with goals from Laura Doyle and Aoife Griffin.

Fastnet Rovers 3, Bridge Rovers 1: Fastnet collected their second win of the season and inflicted the first defeat on Bridge Rovers.

Jamie Devereux scored for Bridge but goals from Triona Kelly, Shirley O'Neill and Joanne Jordan gave the home side all three points.

Seaview United 'B' 2, Courtown Hibs 1: The home side moved second in the table and stay unbeaten after beating Courtown Hibs by the odd goal in three.

Ciara Nolan and Shannon Doyle were on target for the home side while Lauren Ramsey scored for Hibs.
