Peamount United were cruelly knocked out of the UEFA Women’s Champions League as they lost 6-5 on penalties to Glasgow City after holding them scoreless all the way to a shoot-out.
Lauryn O’Callaghan’s was the unfortunate one whoes spot-kick was saved by Glasgow keeper Lee Alexander. Kilkenny’s Karen Duggan, from Piltown was also on penalty duty, but managed to put her’s in the net.
The Women’s National League champions will come away feeling that they deserved more from this tie however they will have to turn their focus back to a League defense and Sunday’s FAI Women’s Senior Cup Semi-Final against Wexford Youths, who last year bested them in the final.
Peamount can take huge heart from their performance, but it just wasn’t to be on this night.
