Ireland victory in women's soccer

THE rising standard of women's soccer at national level was evident at Tolka Park last night, when Ireland beat Wales by one goal to nil, and so moved one ahead in the series, which has seen four meetings between the countries so far.

Breda Handon and Kathleen Hypes In the Irish attack strove constant fare throughout the game.

Shelly Wakers and Sally Manley showed that the visitors have also progressed immeasurably la the skills of the game, prompting one to ask will the sound of "Land of our mothers" be heard instead of the more traditional air'

The Irish girls went to attack from for the start and,but for bad finishing the efforts of Hanlon, Hynes and Eileen Brennan must surely have reaped better rewards.

Nevertheless, they managed lead 1-0 at the interval, Leslie Judd tripping Hyness in The area. The tall attacker converted the penalty herself for what was to be the only score of the match.

Ireland's defence,with Paula Brennan and Margaret Griffin rock solid as twin centre halves, coped capably with everything the Welsh girls threw at them

Indeed towards the close, the Irish side could well have added a few more.
