2nd Sep 2019

In the second of a double-header between the two sides two second-half goals were enough for the Austrians to beat Ireland for the second time in a week.

The game saw international debuts for Bohemians duo Chloe Darby and Alannah Maxwell and Limerick's Alannah Mitchell as Head Coach Dave Connell made the most of the opportunity to see his squad in action.

The game's decisivie moment came 15 minutes into the second half when Austria's Jessica Frieser took advantage of a defensive error to put the visitors in the lead. They doubled their lead 10 minutes later when Laura Wurzer found the net and make it two wins out of two for Michael Steiner's team.
