U-16 Division 1

Shelburne AFC 7, North End United 1: Five goals from Katie Murphy and two from Ella Lyng had Shelburne well in control in this game and saw them run out comfortable 7-1 winners. Katie Law-Dempsey was the scorer for a young, hard-working North End side.

Méabh Wickham scored a hat-trick for the home side while Karolina Jaglarz and Chloe Doyle added one each.

Ella Dobh scored twice for Arklow with Elle Ubvuchwska and Holly Jenkins also on target.

Corach Ramblers 10, New Ross Celtic 0: Ramblers proved much too strong for a young Celtic side, running out comfortable 10-0 winners. Shannon Anglim, Grace Donovan and Niamh Miller all scored two each while Rebecca Stafford, Ciara Cummins, Ciara Anglim and Ashling Waters all added one apiece.

St. Joseph's 3, Moyne Rangers 2: This game was switched to Kilmuckridge due to an unplayable pitch in Moyne, but it turned out to be a thriller with St. Joseph's coming from 2-0 down to snatch all three points with a last-minute winner.

Goals from Shauna Redmond and Katie Sherlock had Moyne 2-0 up but second-half goals from Ellen Cullen, Amy Mitten and a last-minute strike from Pia Hickey gave St. Joseph's a victory that moves them joint top of the table.
