Wicklow People - - SPORT -


WALSH PARK, Water­ford was Satur­day’s venue for Wick­low’s visit to the Deise for their Round 4 Lib­erty In­sur­ance All-Ire­land Premier Ju­nior Championship clash.

Both sides came to this af­ter painful en­coun­ters with heavy hit­ters West­meath and Dublin.

Water­ford had also seen Of­faly score strongly against them.

In this, their fi­nal group game, they set out to sal­vage some­thing from their cam­paign.

The first half showed Water­ford to be the su­pe­rior side as they chalked up three goals.

Wick­low showed more prom­ise at times in this match and found the net which had been quite elu­sive in ear­lier games. Half-time score. Water­ford 3-2 Wick­low 1-3.

Water­ford, sens­ing blood, pushed on to the fi­nal whis­tle. Full-time score: Water­ford 6-8, Wick­low 1-9.

A bruis­ing cam­paign for Wick­low con­tin­ues. How­ever, it is im­por­tant to note small ad­vances, as on this oc­ca­sion Laura Man­ley’s score­board rights be­ing usurped by two col­leagues: Laura Man­ley 0-6, Kelly O’Neill 1-2, Shauna Keogh 0-1. Water­ford had nine names on the score­sheet by full-time.

Water­ford’s championship is fin­ished. Con­grat­u­la­tions to them as they start to plan for next year. Wick­low play Of­faly in the last group game at an Of­faly venue next Satur­day.

Wick­low: Bernie Byrne, Denise Walsh, Nora O’Neill, Shan­nagh Goete­len, Sarah Forde, Claire Byrne, Tanya Carter, Laura Man­ley, Sile Whe­lan, Shauna Keogh, Sheenagh Byrne, Aoife Weir, Kelly O’Neill, Han­nah O’Neill, Katie Daynes, Sarah Tal­lon, Ais­ling Shan­non, Lynn Fen­ton, Grace O Neill.
