They did so in dramatic fashion too.

Athlone Town are off the mark at the seventh time of asking following a dramatic 4-3 win over Galway WFC. 

They've had a couple of close calls during excellent performances in recent weeks and will be a welcome boost for manager Tommy Hewitt. 

The midlanders had to come from a goal down initially after Galway took the lead through Abbie Callanan. 

This sprung Athlone to life and they went on to hit three without reply courtesy of Kaitlin Keogh, Muireann Devaney and Kellie Brennan. 

Mazz Sweeney's team showed great character to peg Athlone back with two goals from the boot of Lynsey McKey but were also aided by a red card for Aoife Haran. 

It appeared as if the game was heading for a share of the spoils until Devaney popped up once again in the 90th minute to bring all three points back to Westmeath. 

The result lifts Athlone Town to sixth in the table and to within two points of tonights opponents. Next up for them is a 4 o'clock kick-off against Bohemians next Saturday.
