The Youths suffered their first defeat of the season, to arch rivals, Peamount, in their fourth round game of the So Hotels Women’s National League, at PRL Park, Greenogue, on Saturday evening.
The sides are now level on points at the top of the table, Wexford hold the advantage on goal difference, but Peamount have a game in hand.
The home-side looked to have the best of the exchanges in the first half, at the break it remained deadlocked, 0-0.

The visitors knuckled down to pull one back through Kylie Murphy two minutes later, and late in the game Rianna Jarrett almost grabbed the equalizer as her shot from outside the box screamed over the crossbar.
