Trail­blaz­ing Wicklow too hot to han­dle for Model County

Bray People - - SPORT - DANIEL GOR­MAN Sports Re­porter

WEX­FORD had no an­swer for a trail­blaz­ing per­for­mance from Wicklow in their U-12 SFAI Jim Cashin Cup clash at Bridge­wa­ter Cen­tre Park on Satur­day morn­ing.

The all-weather venue in Ark­low meant that this fix­ture was largely un­af­fected by the re­cent tor­rid weather to hit the Garden County and the weather cer­tainly had no ef­fect on Wicklow's young­sters as they got their cam­paign back on track courtesy of this 2-0 win over their neigh­bours.

Satur­day saw Wicklow en­joy their sec­ond out­ing in this group.

Their pre­vi­ous match ended in nar­row de­feat against the NDSL but Wicklow bounced back in style at the week­end as they put Wex­ford to the sword.

The hosts took the lead ap­prox­i­mately mid­way through mid­way through the first half thanks to Wicklow Rovers' Keith Carty.

Wicklow shot-stop­per Eoin O'Neill, was com­pe­tent when called upon and even suf­fered some bat­tle wounds for the cause but a clean sheet will have made it all worth it for the Ark­low Town star.

The re­sult was put be­yond doubt in the dy­ing mo­ments when Eoin Darcy of Aughrim Rangers fired past the Wex­ford goal­keeper.

Wicklow: Eoin O'Neill; Joshua Mills, Cian Walsh, Ryan Kenny, Thomas Lynch; Keith Carty, Sean Crow­ley, Daniel Bruce, Olufemi Tan­i­mowo; Liam Moore, Eoin Darcy. Subs: Jack Reilly, Oisin Hill, Ben­jamin Clarke, Mark Cullen, James Crean, Ethan O'Neill, Ted Cross­ing­ham.
