TREATY United's exciting U17 women's squad are set to face Peamount United in the EA Sports Women's U17 National League final at Athlone Town Stadium tomorrow, Friday, night at 7.45pm.

This will be the third meeting between the sides this season. Both previous fixtures were very tight affairs, Treaty losing out 1-0 to Peamount in Dublin, while the teams played out a 1-1 draw in September when Aine Walsh was on target for Treaty.

Treaty have been in impressive goal-scoring form in recent weeks, netting four times in their last two fixtures. Treaty followed up on a 4-1 away win over Galway when Emily O’Halloran grabbed a hat-trick and Alix Mendez was also on target with another 4-1 victory away to Wexford Youths last time out.

The goals on that occasion were scored by Heidi O’Sullivan, who netted a brace, while Emily O’Halloran and Shauna Pearson were also on target.

Treaty United's excellent season has been built on their terrific home record this season, which has seen them go through the campaign unbeaten.

Among the highlights of Treaty United's campaign was an impressive 6-3 home Munster derby win over reigning champions Cork City.

The young Treaty squad, captained by Heidi O'Sullivan, are also a high scoring team. Team manager Craig Hurley, from Cork, was appointed to the position at the start of the year.
