Wales 4-5 Ireland Women's A

Ireland women's A team overturned a half-time deficit to win a nine-goal cracker in Cardiff against Wales. Katherine Elkin opened the floodgates after six minutes, set up by an on-form Aine Connery.

Goals from Dawn Mitchelle and Beth Fisher turned the game around by half-time and extended the lead through Carys Hopkins  with a stylish third.

Aine Connery's double and Megan Frazer - all within four minutes - put Ireland back into the lead in the 46th minute at 4-3. Sophia Robinson made it 4-4 with ten minutes to go but Michelle Harvey got the game's decisive goal in the 66th minute with a low drag-flick.

Gene Muller said after the game "It was a thrilling match and we did well to win from 3-1 down. We scored some very well worked goals from open play and the team were very excited with their performance."
