Athlone IT retain their WSCAI Premier Division status for next season after defeating Dublin City University 3-1 yesterday in the Premier / First Division Playoff game played in NUI Maynooth.
Athlone dominated throughout the first half and went ahead after twenty minutes from a well worked corner. A great ball delivered by Marian Murray was met by the head of Ashley Monus who powered home from 4 yards. The score line remained 1-0 at the break.
Directly after the re start Emma Curley played a great cross field ball to Taylor who delivered to the box and the on rushing Catriona Dolan slotted home from two yards.
After 70 minutes AIT went 3-0 up when Taylor again burst down the left, her pace took her past the full back and she slotted home from a tight angle.
DCU pulled one back with just 10 minutes remaining through Anna Mc Cormack but it was all too late for the Dublin side and AIT ran out 3-1 winners to retain Premier Division status for another season.
