Treaty United edged past Bohemians 5-4 in the Women's National League this Saturday

The win was the Limerick side's third of their Women's National League campaign.

The Shannonsiders trailed 2-3 at half-time, with their goals coming from Gillian Keenan and Aoife Horgan. The Bohs' goals were scored by Shaunagh Newman, Aoife Robinson and Sophie Waters.

Treaty drew level after the restart as the influential Keenan grabbed her second of the game. And the visitors took the lead with the talented Jenna Slattery fired Treaty in front at 4-3.

The see-saw nature of the scoring continued, however, when Robinson netted her second goal of the game with a minutes remaining.

However, the drama was far from over yet as Treaty grabbed all three league points when Chloe Connolly struck for the precious winning goal.
