Edel shines but Youths fail to make progress

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

CARNEW na­tive Edel Kennedy played a key tole in Wex­ford Youths’ Uefa Women’s Cham­pi­ons League Qual­i­fiers in Aly­tus, Lithua­nia, over the past week, scor­ing a goal in the clash with Vl­laz­nia last Wed­nes­day.

That game ended with a 1-3 de­feat for the Youths and ul­ti­mately cost them the cov­eted spot in the knock­out spot.

The Fer­rycar­rig Park side en­joyed a won­der­ful vic­tory on Sa­tru­day against Gin­tra with Carnew’s Kennedy very much to the fore yet again but the dame was done in the ini­tial de­feat.

Kennedy will have taken her place in the start­ing 15 yesterday af­ter­noon (Tues­day) but the re­sult was mean­ing­less as it was im­pos­si­ble for Youths to qual­ify.
