Wick­low Un­der-12s share spoils with neigh­bours

Bray People - - Sport -

Wick­low 1, Wex­ford 1: Wick­low had to set­tle for a share of the spoils in the Un­der-12 Cashin Cup last Sun­day de­spite tak­ing the lead just be­fore of half-time.

St. Peter’s Bhoys star Seán Devlin found Wick­low Rovers man Seán O’Brien and he crashed home a su­perb half-vol­ley from near the penalty spot.

The hosts’ joy was short-lived how­ever as their south­ern neigh­bours lev­elled things up not too long af­ter the break af­ter Wex­ford player Kamil con­verted the re­bound af­ter a fine save from Tommy Dunne.

This leaves the Gar­den County sit­ting pretty on four points as they have al­ready got the bet­ter of Kil­dare when they went there and came away 4-3 win­ners.

One has to feel that Wex­ford will be the hap­pier of the two sides af­ter this one though af­ter they left the White­gates with a point.

Wick­low: Tommy Dunne, Stephen Downey, Niall Don­nelly, Tommy Whit­tle, Fi­achra O’Han­nain, Seán Devlin, Mark Mi­ley, Dar­ragh Byrne, Aaron O’Sul­li­van, Seán O’Brien, Nathan O’Rourke. Subs. Seán Law­less, Kae­lim Broughan, Jack Dwyer, Conor Byrne, Nathan Fa­gan, Jor­dan McGrath, Seán McGraynor.

Mean­while, two of Wick­low’s other un­der­age sides were also in action over the week­end but un­for­tu­nately there was no joy for ei­ther side as they both lost their matches.

The U-14 side vis­ited Greenogue Park to take on the Dublin and District School­boy League and suf­fered a very heavy 10-0 de­feat. Wick­low went in trail­ing 4-0 at the break but the DDSL showed no mercy as they racked up an­other six goals in the sec­ond-half.

The U-15s were the other team to take to the field this week when they trav­elled to Kilkenny.

The hosts proved that hurl­ing isn’t the only sport their good at though as they picked up a 5-3 win over their Wick­low op­po­si­tion. The hosts went ahead be­fore a brace from Ark­low Town’s un­der­age in­ter­na­tional Mark Hardy gave the vis­i­tors the ad­van­tage.

Kilkenny equalised just be­fore half-time though and were en­joy­ing a two goal lead early in the sec­ond-half.

A Shane Doyle ef­fort gave Wick­low hope once more but the Cats found the net for the fifth and fi­nal time to seal mat­ters.

Wick­low Un­der-12s, who drew with Wex­ford at the week­end.
