Wexford Youths maintained their unbeaten record in the Women's National League after coming back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with champions Shelbourne at Ferrycarrig Park.

 

Shels took an early lead through Siobhan Killeen and Alex Kavanagh but were pegged back after the break as Nicola Sinnott halved the deficit before Claire O'Riordan completed the job.

 

There were just five minutes on the clock when Killeen showed poise and skill to finish from a tight angle following good work in midfield from Kavanagh.

 

And Ireland under-19 international Kavanagh made it 2-0 in the 16th minute as she drilled the ball low past Sophie Lenehan from just inside the box.

 

That was as good as it was to get for Shels, however, and Sinnott pulled one back with a downward header from Emma Hansberry's corner on the hour mark.

 

And O'Riordan completed the comeback two minutes from the end as she took Becky Cassin's long ball, overpowered the Shelbourne defender and finished past Amanda McQuillan.
