BY DAVE DONNELLY
PEAMOUNT United supervisor James O’Callaghan anticipates another very hard test on Saturday as the champs travel to encounter this season’s surprise package DLR Waves at the UCD Bowl.
The Newcastle side rest top of the heap with 6 wins from their six success to date however already a clear team of four sides have actually emerged as a breakaway pack.
Peamount, Shelbourne and also Wexford have actually dominated the league for the previous few seasons, and also they have actually been signed up with by a new challenger in Graham Kelly’s Waves.
Simply five points different Peamount from fourth-placed Waves, with Wexford as well as Shelbourne two as well as three factors respectively from the top.
The Peas won an exhilarating experience by the weird goal in five when the two sides met in Greenogue last season, and O’Callaghan is clear his side will need to be at their ideal to take 3 points.
“DLR have had a sensational beginning– they’re playing truly well, they’re small, and they have actually got a truly excellent striking risk in their group as well,” O’Callaghan tells the Dublin Gazette.
“Graham has collected a great deal of brand-new signings as well as a lot of experience with some great young players coming with.
“It’s really pertaining to fulfillment for him this period, all the work he’s been correcting the previous season or more as well as I fully expect them to do well this year.”
The Peas were compelled to dig deep again against Cork City but leading scorer Eleanor Ryan Doyle generated the items to keep the champs three factors clear.
Peamount, who are choosing an unprecedented third succeeding league title, maintained their 100% record thanks to late goals from Ryan Doyle and also captain Aine O’Gorman in Greenogue.
Ryan Doyle notched her secondly of the video game, as well as sixth for the season total amount, with a bullet header 20 minutes from time prior to O’Gorman made the factors safe late on.
O’Gorman had been the maker for Ryan Doyle’s early opener however City deservedly levelled right before the break through 16-year-old midfielder Eva Mangan and placed it approximately Peas.
It’s been a recurring theme for O’Callaghan’s side this period– they got on level terms going into the last quarter of video games with Bohemians as well as Athlone Community before winning late on.
