One final chance for UCD as Naima Chemaou lines up a free kick 35 yards out. With no real angle to cross, she takes the shot on and some in the ground think it's dipped under the bar when the net ripples, but it's bounced back off the fence behind the goal. Not far off from the winger.
Beirne has been UCD's most likely attacking outlet all night and she gives an idea of why, the winger tenaciously beating Parrock in a 50/50 before surging forward and driving just over the top.
Frawley find space in behind on the left but her cross is too close to Turner for Jarrett to compete for. Turner spills it, however, but recovers in time to smother the ball before substitute Katrina Parrock pounces.
The concession of the goal has spurred UCD on to take some more risks and Dearbhaile Beirne has been at the forefront of that. She beats Nicola Sinnott down the left before flashing in an inviting low cross that Payne is inches from connecting with.
Jarrett finds room on the right and drills a cross in the direction of O'Riordan, but her shot is well-blocked by the substitute Spillane.
Rianna Jarrett scores for Wexford Youths Women. Substiute Orla Casey makes an immediate impact, getting in down the left and pulling back for Jarrett, who has tiime and space to line up her shot and plant the ball low into the corner.
Conroy turns well on the ball and space opens up but, caught in two minds, she flashes a cross/shot past the post.
Good run up the left-hand side from Claire O'Riordan and she crosses towards Frawley at the back post, but she miscontrols with the UCD defence scrambling.
UCD finally manage an effort on goal after Naima Chemaou wins the ball high up the pitch. She shoots early but there's not enough power in the shot to trouble Sophie Lenehan in the Wexford goal.
Kennedy intercepts in midfield and space opens up for a shot, but she pulls her effort a long way left of the target.
UCD have started the second half much brighter, and Mustaki's ball across for Payne is well headed clear.
Soft free kick for Wexford to end the half, but Conlon strikes it over the bar.
Some rare respite for Waves as Katie Burdis gets forward down the left and crosses, but there's nobody in a blue shirt to meet it.
Another great chance goes abegging for Wexford as Dwyer's long diagonal free kick finds Jarrett on her own at the back post but she glances her header wide with Turner scrambling. The champions really should have converted one of these chances by now.
Edel Kennedy threads a ball through for Claire O'Riordan to latch onto, but her first touch is a heavy one and Turner is out to pick up the loose ball.
Wexford starting to turn the screw here, and a great turn and shot from Rianna Jarrett forces Turner to tip the ball over the bar at full stretch. From the corner, the ball drops to Orlaith Conlon and she gets her shot quickly, only for Turner to brilliantly turn the ball away from her near post. Vital work from the keeper.
Wexford captain Kylie Murphy has a snapshot from distance that flies well over the bar.
Conroy's shot is turned behind the post by centre-half Snell, and the same player turns the corner delivery behind in a busy passage of play. UCD eventually get the ball away.
Dwyer floats in a free kick from deep and Chelsee Snell is forced to head it behind for a corner, which comes to nothing.
First time UCD have looked to unlock the Wexford defence and it's a nice through ball from captain Chloe Mustaki that just runs slightly too far for Leanne Payne.
Frawley's corner from the right is met by the head of Lauren Dwyer, but she can't steer her effort on target.
Conroy returns the favour this time with a lovely low ball across the six-yard box that Frawley should turn in at the far post, but she fails to make proper contact with it and the chance is gone.
The visitors have controlled the game in the opening stages, with wingers Aisling Frawley and Becky Conroy both to the fore. Frawley volleys over a deep cross that's tricky for Conroy to deal with, but she manages to head wide of the target.
The first chance of the game falls Wexford's way as Aisling Frawley intercepts in the UCD half and attempts to lob Erica Turner, but she can't get the elevation to trouble the keeper.
