Wick­low stu­dents fac­ing two mas­sive games

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

COUNTY Wick­low stu­dents face two huge GAA games this week with Wick­low Schools fac­ing St Pat’s of Na­van in the Top Oil Bro Bosco Cup Le­in­ster Post Pri­mary Schools Senor ‘A’ foot­ball semi-fi­nal af­ter over­com­ing Of­faly Schools last time out and Coláiste Bhríde Carnew tak­ing on Wex­ford CBS in the Top Oil South Le­in­ster Post Pri­mary Schools Ju­nior Hurl­ing ‘C’ fi­nal re­play in Ferns.

Th­ese are two ground­break­ing clashes for Wick­low sides in re­cent years. Vic­tory over Wex­ford CBS for the hurlers of Coláiste Bhríde would be a won­der­ful achieve­ment and would boost hurl­ing im­mensely along the Wex­ford bor­der.

Like­wise, a place in the Se­nior ‘A’ Le­in­ster foot­ball fi­nal by get­ting the bet­ter of the likes of St Pat’s of Na­van would be an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment for a tal­ented young squad man­aged by John Paul Davis.

It’s a noon throw in on Fri­day for Coláiste Bhríde in the Ferns C.O.E., while Wick­low Schools will travel to Ab­bot­stown to face Colm O’Rourke’s side at 2 p.m. on Satur­day after­noon.

At the same time the Wick­low Se­nior foot­ballers will be get­ting their Di­vi­sion 4 clash with neigh­bours Wex­ford up and run­ning as they look to bounce back from the dis­ap­point­ing de­feat away to Derry last week­end.

John Evans’ men felt the full power of the Derry men and left the Oak Leaf county empty handed af­ter the con­ces­sion of two poor goals.

It’s a mas­sive week­end for Ea­monn Scallan’s hurlers. They travel to Derry with the pos­si­bil­ity of a league fi­nal spot very much alive and well pro­vid­ing they can top­ple the league lead­ers in what is al­ways guar­an­teed to be a dif­fi­cult en­counter.

James Kelly will take his high-fly­ing Wick­low ladies across the coun­try to do bat­tle with Sligo where vic­tory would com­plete a run of three wins from four games af­ter their loss to the Rossies.
