16-Year-Old Ellen Molloy Hits Four In 7-1 Wexford Youths Win

Wexford Youths picked up their first win of the season in the Women's National League on Sunday.

They beat Treaty United 7-1 with four of their goals coming from 16-year-old Ireland international Ellen Molloy.

Wexford were already 2-1 up through goals from Ciara Rossiter and Sinead Taylor when Molloy scored her first in the 41st minute.

It was a super strike from outside the box by the Kilkenny native.

A penalty from Kylie Murphy shortly after the break put Wexford 4-1 ahead. In the 75th minute, Molloy added her second with a cool left-footed finish.

Her hat-trick goal came two minutes later when she picked up the ball on the right, worked her way into the box and slotted past the keeper.

Molloy added her fourth in the 82nd minute, this time with header after a cross from Fiona Ryan.

The teenager won her third and fourth caps for Ireland in the friendlies against Denmark and Belgium earlier this month.
