Cork Women’s FC away to Peamount

Cork Women’s FC roared out of the traps following their Christmas break, getting their 2012 off to the right kind of start with a 3-1 victory away to Wexford Youths Women last weekend in the Bus Éireann/FAI Women’s National League.

However, the opposition for their away match this Sunday, Peamount United, is a more fearsome ‘bogeyman’, having beaten Cork 6-1 in the opening game of the league last November.

But the Cork team heads to Dublin in high spirits, emboldened by their three-goal tally in Wexford against the team that defeated them 2-0 at CIT just prior to Christmas.

Last Sunday, Cork summoned a performance as fine as any seen in the league so far this season, with Claudia Hudner scoring from a corner in the second minute.

Just before half-time, in the 43rd minute, Claire Shine put the game further beyond the hosts’ reach when she found the top corner of the Wexford goal.

In a less fluid second half for Cork, the visitors nevertheless continued to dominate, with team captain Denise O’Sullivan netting a third goal after 71 minutes of play. Wexford piled on the pressure in the closing phase, but only Nichola Dunphy was able to register a goal.

Looking ahead to Sunday’s match against the table-topping Peamount, a club spokesperson predicted a tough encounter, but said that “spirits and confidence are high” in the Cork camp.
