Emma Hansberry maintained her reputation as a scorer of spectacular goals as the winger struck a late winner from distance to send Wexford Youths into their first WNL Cup final in four years.

The winger, who missed the first half of the season after undergoing knee surgery, scored a stunning winner to seal the Women's National League title against Peamount United on the final day last year.

And the 24-year-old was unerringly accurate again as she spotted Galway keeper Tina Hughes off her line and launched a dipping shot from 25 yards that nestled in the back of the net.

The game was poised at 1-1 after Katrina Parrock's goal early in the second half was cancelled out by an unfortunate own goal from Edel Kennedy.

Wexford will meet Peamount once more in the final in mid-September after the Peas ran out 3-0 winners over fellow Dublin side UCD Waves on Sunday.
