LIMERICK'S Treaty United recorded their first home win of the Women's National League season when edging past Bohemians 2-1 at the Markets Field on Sunday afternoon.

Dave Rooney's team had a couple of early chances on goal before Maggie Duncliffe broke the deadlock on 26 minutes when the former Cork City player connected with a pass from Aoife Shine to fire in.

Bohs' hit back just before the interval when midfielder Niamh Kenna directed the ball into the back of the net.

Almost immediately after the restart, the hosts were back in front when Shine again acted as creator but it was Aoife Horgan who supplied the cool finish to secure back-to-back wins for the Limerick outfit.

Next up for Treaty's senior side in the Women's National League is a trip to the Athlone Town Stadium to face Athlone Town on Saturday evening at 7pm.
