Peamount came from behind in this evening’s opening WNL game, against a top flight Cork City Womens FC side, to secure all three points. After Cork City took an early lead, with Katie McCarthy, scoring in the very first minute – just 21 seconds into the 2019 season, Amber Barrett wasted no time in finding the back of the Cork City net when she scored on the seven minute mark! Midway through the first half, the legendary Aine O’Gorman put Peamount into the lead, during a goalmouth scramble, with another goal that proved to be the match winner. Well done Peas, 2-1, an absolutely fantastic start to the 2019 season!
