Goals from Brid Madigan (4), Anais Curran, Laura Butler (2), Emma Clarke, Ulrika Dreelan and Tara Doyle saw Cloughbawn come away from Bunclody 10-0 victors. Curracloe proved far too strong for a brave young Moyne side and ran out comprehensive winners with goals from Chloe Murphy, Leah Scallan, Amy Whelan, Gemma Corrigan, Ailish Neville, Naomi Murphy, Catriona Kinsella, Amy Fortune, Florence Healy, Lauren Doyle and Nicole Kenny

Under Fourteen Division One
North End began their season with a win when they travelled to St Josephs and came away 6-1 winners thanks to goals from Chelsey Pitman (4) and Michelle Carthy (2) while Amy Mitten was on target for the home side. Goals from Elena Kenny and Kate Foley gave Campile United a 2-0 win over near neighbours Seaview while St Leonards overcame New Ross Town 3-2 in a very close battle.

Sarah Siggins (5), Ruth Hendrick (3) and Eva Donohoe (2) were all on target for Celtic with Jade Power (3) and Grace Roche (4) the scorers for Youths

Under Eighteen League
The big match at this age group saw title holders Killenagh Wanderers overcome previous years winners Cloughbawn 2-0 and already it is obvious that these two will be among the main contenders for the title this season. A goal from Caoimhe Roche and an own goal gave Killenagh all three points in a closely contested encounter. The other favourites to challenge for the title are Curracloe and they had little trouble overcoming near neighbours Bridge Rovers. Goals from Derbhla Doyle (3), Lauren Fitzgerald (2), Siobhan Doolan (2) and one each from Roisin Doolan, Natasha Byrne and Rianna Cullen saw them run out 10-0 winners. St Josephs travelled to Tombrack and eventually broke down the young home side to take all three points in a 3-0 win courtesy of goals from Diane Kehoe (2) and Pamela Walsh

Leinster Under Twelve Cup First Round
St Itas FC        3          Cloughbawn    3          aet       (Cloughbawn won 4-3 on pens)
Cloughbawn made the long journey to Portrane, Co Dublin to take on local club St Itas in the first round of the Under Twelve Leinster Cup and after a mighty battle, they emerged as victors on penalties after a 3-3 draw. Playing nine a side for the first time, the Clonroche side produced some top class football with Chloe O Neill scoring two and under ten Mary Kaylan rounded off a great weekend when also finding the net. With the game going to penalties, the young Cloughbawn side held their nerve to advance to the second round

Leinster Womens Cup First Round
TEK United    7          Bunclody AFC           0
This was a big step up for the young Bunclody side but despite going down 7-0 in the end, they improved as the game progressed and will have gained a lot from the experience. TEK raced into an early lead but as Bunclody got to grips with the game, they held their more experienced hosts at bay and put in a much improved second half display. They will now go into the Shield competition and will be prepared for what the opposition will throw at them on their next outing

Womens Premier Division
Benfica            0          Seaview United          2
Seaview will be delighted with their start to the season as they made history by winning their opening game of the season for the first time in four years. They were good value for their victory as they overcame the home side with a goal in each half from Brid Kehoe and Seaview will be a side that will cause many teams problems this season

Womens Division One
Castledockrell United             2          Cloughbawn AFC       4
The home side fell to their first defeat in the league in over two years when going down 4-2 to a Cloughbawn side eager to put last weeks opening day defeat behind them. Evelyn Morris and Ellen Kelly were on target for Castledockrell but goals from Amy Banville (2), Aoife Devereux and Emer Mernagh gave the visitors the three points

Womens Division Two A
St Leonards     4          Courtown Hibs           0
The home side look as if they will give this division a run as they picked up their second win of the season with a 4-0 win over Courtown Hibs. Two goals from Ciara Ryan and one each from Niamh Foran and Claire Whelan gave St Leonards the points to put them top of the table at this early stage.

Womens Division Two B
Moyne Rangers           4          Rosslare Strand           2
Shannon O Brien scored both goals for Strand in this match but Moyne look very strong and are showing to be early favourites as their experienced side ran out 4-2 winners. Former Cloughbawn players Siobhan Grant Moorehead and Nicola Davitt both scored twice to open their league campaign with a win

Fair Play
In an age of win at all costs with players diving, looking for opponents to be sent off, etc, St
Leonards Claire Whelan deserves a mention for preventing the Courtown Hibs goalkeeper from unfairly dismissed in their match on Sunday. As Claire bore down on Hibs goal, she flicked the ball over the advancing keeper who stopped the ball outside the area with her hands, in the opinion of referee Pat Sinnott, and he was left with no option to issue a red card. However Claire approached the ref and explained the ball had actually hit the keeper in the face and had not handled it so did not deserve to be dismissed. Common sense prevailed and the goalie remained on the pitch and great credit must go to Claire for her sense of fair play, a rare element in the game at any level.

Under Fourteen Premier Division Play Off

Cloughbawn    0          Kilmore United           1

These two sides progressed through their league campaign unbeaten, eventually finishing level on points and requiring a play off to decide the premier title. The sides had drawn in both their league games so this match was always going to be tight and for the early part of the game, both sides cancelled each other out, creating only the minimum amount of chances. The breakthrough eventually came early in the second half when Rachel Bennett broke through and slotted the ball past the Cloughbawn keeper to give Kilmore the lead. Despite Cloughbawn’s best efforts to get back on level terms, Kilmore held on to secure the premier title and complete the league and cup double. League vice chairman Barry Dempsey was on hand to present the trophy to the winning squad who showed their dominance at this age group by going through the season unbeaten


Womens Premier Division  Runners Up Play Off

Adamstown    2          Tramore           1

The home side secured runners up spot in the premier division when they overcame a battling Tramore side who worked hard but eventually went down 2-1. Vanessa Ogbonna gave the visitors the lead but Adamstown bombarded the Tramore goal and with ten minutes to go SJ Flood grabbed the equaliser and five minutes later, Ann Marie Dunphy struck the winner with a magnificent volley from her own half of the field. This crowned off a good season for the Adamstown side who as well as securing second in the league,had also reached the Wexford Cup Final where they were just beaten 1-0 by Ferns.

          Wexford win Gaynor Plate for second time in three years
A gruelling seven games in three days saw the Wexford Schoolgirls League Under Fourteen squad win the Gaynor Plate as they overcame near neighbours Waterford in a thrilling final last Monday. The tournament kicked off on Saturday with a 4-1 win over Longford with Britney Conroy (2), Fiona Ryan and Amy Wilson all on target in a comfortable win. Despite controlling long periods of the second game against Inishowen, Wexford did not take their chances and with three minutes to go disaster struck when the girls from the North West scored to snatch all three points. The final game on Saturday evening, Wexford came up against a very strong Galway side and although Amy Wilson scored a free kick, the Western girls won 3-1 and actually went on to win the Gaynor Cup when they beat the Metropolitan Girls League 1-0 in the final.

Sunday saw Wexford bounce back to winning ways with a 4-1 win over Clare with Britney Conroy (2), Hannah Keating and Aoife Devereux all on target. This was followed by another 4-1 win, this time against Kerry and the win was enough to move Wexford from fourth to second in the group and a place in the semi finals of the Plate competition. Two goals each from Britney Conroy and Aoife Devereux saw Wexford secure their third win of the tournament.

A tough semi final against a strong Mayo side could have went either way but Wexford showed great spirit and determination to progress to their third Plate final in a row when Fiona Ryan scored the only goal of the game. Indeed it was the only goal of the four semi finals that were played in the Cup and Plate as the other three games all ended scoreless and went to penalties to decide the winners.

Wexford faced neighbours Waterford in the Plate final and after a scoreless first half, disaster struck early in the second half when Waterford went 1-0 ahead. However, despite showing signs of tiredness after three tough days of soccer, Wexford levelled when Amy Wilson sent a free kick to the back of the net and the game looked to be heading to extra time. In a dramatic finish, Sarah Harding Kenny was taken down in the area in the final minute after a great run from midfield and Amy Wilson showed a calmness beyond her years to slot home the resultant penalty and give Wexford victory.

Congratulations to all involved as this dedicated management team and panel worked very hard to achieve this success and it showed great character to lift the Plate that they last won in 2012. The management and players would like to thank the Talbot Hotel Wexford for their sponsorship and a word of thanks to all the parents and supporters who travelled to University of Limerick for the weekend.

Ger Dunne Under Sixteen Cup Final

Curracloe United        1          Bree United     0

First division side Bree United put in a brave and spirited performance in this Ger Dunne Under Sixteen Cup final but at the end were unable to prevent Curracloe United from lifting their fourth cup in five years. Bree started well in the game and were unlucky not to take the lead in the opening minutes but after surviving that opening scare, Curracloe settled into the game and began to take control. However, the Bree defence worked hard at keeping them at bay but a speculative shot from Siobhan Doolan broke the deadlock midway through the first half to give Curracloe the lead. Bree came in search of an equaliser but were unable to break down the Seasiders defence with player of the match Niamh Bennett in particular, keeping them at bay. While Curracloe went into this game as hot favourites, they had to work very hard to get across the line and Bree can be very proud of their efforts and will probably even feel a little unfortunate that they did not at least get to extra time. However, any team that can win one of the league’s most competitive cups four years from five must be commended and they now head into their final league game against Killenagh knowing a draw will secure the league and cup double. The league would like to thank Bridge Rovers for the use of their pitch for this cup final Wexford Womens Cup Final

Ferns United    1          Adamstown     0

A closely fought final saw Ferns United complete the league and cup double when they overcame Adamstown by a solitary goal to lift the cup for the fifth time in seven years. Of those five cup victories, few will have been as tough as this one as Adamstown, who have enjoyed a good season, battled hard to keep the high flying Ferns girls at bay. The unbeaten premier champions enjoyed the earlier possession in the game but found the Adamstown defence difficult to break down. Adamstown were always looking dangerous on the break but did not produce enough to trouble the Ferns keeper and then on thirty two minutes, the breakthrough came when Leona Breen was taken down in the area and Ferns were awarded a penalty. Admastown keeper Leanne Murphy was unlucky not to stop Hayley Nolan’s spot kick but it found its way to the net to give Ferns the lead.

Adamstown came more into the game in the second half with Chantelle Martin going close with free kicks on two occasions while Leona Breen and Liz Everedd had efforts going close for Ferns. Despite Adamstown’s best efforts they could not grab that elusive equaliser and Ferns held on to lift the Cup with Hayley Nolan picking up the player of the match award. The league would like to thank Moyne Rangers for the use of their pitch which was in excellent condition for this cup final


Womens Premier Division

Benfica            0          Tramore          2

Goals from Niamh Walsh and Orla Hickey saw Tramore take all three points in the Waterford derby and create a three way play off for runners up spot in the Premier Division. Both these sides and Adamstown will now battle it out for the silver medals as all teams finish on twenty four points each


Schoolgirls Round Up

An Amy Shannon goal saw Moyne Rangers overcome a spirited Tombrack United to lift the under ten division one title on Tuesday evening. There was very little between the sides but it was Amy’s early goal that saw Rangers take the spoils. Adamstown and St Cormacs went to extra time before Adamstown ran out 4-1 winners to lift the under ten division two B title. Sophie Kirwan scored for the Boolavogue girls but two goals from Karlina Jaglarz and one each from Ailing O Dowd and Ella Furlong gave Adamstown the title.

At under sixteen level, Cloughbawn wrapped up runners up spot in division one when overcoming New Ross Town 9-3 on Tuesday while Curracloe moved to within a point of the premier title when travelling to Kilmore on Friday and coming away 9-0 winners

Schoolgirls League

Campile United lifted the under twelve premier division on Wednesday evening when they overcame Ballindaggin on penalties after a 1-1 draw in Newbawn. Lydia McGrath gave Campile a first half lead and they looked like they were going to hang on for the win in normal time but a Faye Larkin free kick in the final minute got Ballindaggin back on level terms and brought the game to extra time. No further goals saw the game go to penalties where Campile kept their nerve to win 2-1. On the same evening Kilmore United ensured their safety in the division when overcoming Curracloe United 2-0 thanks to a goal in each half from Sophie Boxwell

Cloughbawn travelled to Rosslare Rangers on Monday evening and progressed to the semi final overcoming the home side 7-3.

Under Twelve Division One

Courtown Hibs wrapped up the league title on Wednesday evening when overcoming Bunclody 5-0. Goals from Ella Maree (2), Lara Walsh (2) and Gina Burke gave them the points they needed to wrap up the title and the trophy was presented to the winning squad after the game by league committee member Tom “Flash” Dunne. St Leonards had already finished second when travelling to Wexford Celtic on Saturday and collecting all three points after a dramatic 4-3 win.


Under Twelve Division Two A

The top two teams in the division completed their season on Saturday with champions New Ross Town completing their season with a perfect ten wins out of ten games as they overcame runners up Wexford Youths 3-1. The Youths led 1-0 at the break through Nadine Fortune but an Amy Lawlor hat trick saw Town take all three points.

However on Friday evening, Bridge Rovers overcame Tombrack United 5-0 to leapfrog All Blacks and wrap up the league title with Chloe Mythen, Kelley Scanlon, Holly Johnson, Deirdre Byrne and Tara Smyth all on target for Rovers. League treasurer Ashling Kavanagh was on hand to present the victorious side with their league trophy


Under Ten Cup Final

Taghmon United lifted the under ten cup for the first time when they overcame premier side Ballindaggin 2-0 in a closely contested final played in front of an enthusiastic and encouraging crowd. Cora Banville gave Taghmon a first half lead and although Ballindaggin pressed for an equaliser, they found it difficult to break down the hard working defence and when Cora scored her second goal five minutes from the end, there was no way back. Cora Banville crowned off the day when she was awarded player of the match with league chairman Daire Doyle presenting the winning side with their cup


Noel Kehoe Pitch Development Under Twelve Cup Final

Ballindaggin were the first winners of the day when they lifted the Noel Kehoe Pitch Development Cup after a close game against a very unlucky Cloughbawn side. The Clonroche girls could have taken the lead early in the game but just saw their shot nick the post and go wide. Ballindaggin broke the deadlock five minutes from the end of the first half when Niamh Mchugh brought a good save from Catlyn Mernagh but reacted well to knock in the rebound. Although both sides went in search of further goals, defences held firm and Ballindaggin held on to lift the cup and potentially the first half of a cup and league double. Ballindaggin midfielder Orlagh Kehoe was awarded player of the match as league committee member Aine Murphy presented the winning side with their cup and medals


Under Fourteen Cup Final

Premier title challengers Kilmore United eventually broke down a stubborn Gorey Rangers side who put up a spirited performance playing in their first ever schoolgirl final. Although Kilmore enjoyed more possession in the first half, they found Rangers hard to break down until just before half time. Once they got in front, there was no way back for Rangers despite their best efforts and the game was delayed with fifteen minutes remaining when Gorey player Simone Kavanagh picked up a nasty injury and had to be removed to hospital. Her team mates showed great character to complete the game with the unbeaten Kilmore side running out 4-0 winners with Ann Marie Bennett (2), Sophie Boxwell and Emily Bates all on target with Emily also picking up the player of the match award. League committee member Elayne Grant presented the winning side with their trophy and everyone involved in the game wishes Simone Kavanagh a speedy recovery from her injury.


Under Eighteen Cup Final

Two goals in each half saw Curracloe United secure the under eighteen cup as they overcame Seaview United 4-0 scoring an early goal to take control. Seaview battled bravely until Curracloe scored their second goal just before half time and after that there was only going to be one winner. Seaview continued to make life difficult for the leaders and Curracloe had to work hard to kill off the game which they duly did with two second half goals. Amy Banville and player of the match Siobhan Doolan scored the first half goals while Dearbhla Doyle and Rianna Cullen found the net in the second half. League treasurer Ashling Kavanagh presented the winning captain Noleen Shanahan with the trophy to round off the season for the league runners up


Michelle Coleman Shield Final

St Josephs became the first winners of the Michelle Coleman Shield when they overcame Corach Ramblers after a very tight final in Bunclody on Sunday. Both sides produced some good chances but it was the Kilmuckridge girls who were victorious on the day with Emer O Leary scoring the only goal of the game.


Gaynor Cup Final

The revised Gaynor Cup went all the way to extra time on Sunday before Fastnet Rovers eventually overcame Moyne Rangers 2-1 after extra time. This is one of the oldest competitions in the league but was dropped for a number of years and was brought back this season for the bottom four teams in the league. Fastnet and Moyne produced a thriller of a game before Rovers eventually came out on top thanks to goals from Rebecca O Connor and Shirley O Neill with Louise O Brien on target for Moyne


Boland Carpets Shield Final

A solitary Lisa Marie Doyle goal saw Taghmon United lift the first ever Boland Carpets Shield when overcoming Bunclody AFC 1-0 on Sunday. In a very tight game both sets of defences were in control and kept chances to a minimum until Lisa Marie eventually broke the deadlock.


Michelle Coleman Cup Final

Division One champions Killenagh Wanderers retained the Michelle Coleman Cup when proving too strong for promoted New Ross Town in Bunclody on Sunday. The very experienced Killenagh side took control early in the game and never allowed the youthful enthusiastic New Ross side to get a grip on the game. Two goals each from Teresa Redmond and Leanne Naughter saw them run out 4-0 winners and if they can carry this form into next season, they could create an impact in the premier division. New Ross Town can be proud of their season where they were promoted for the third season in a row as well as reaching their third cup final on the trot


Nolan Health and Fitness Cup Final

Rosslare Strand caused a minor upset in the Nolan Health and Fitness Final when overcoming division champions Bree United 1-0. In a final where chances were at a minimum, Bree did create several chances but failed to convert and found a hard working Strand side difficult to break down. Sarah Walsh became the heroine for the Strand side as she found the net to give her side victory and their first silverware since joining the league.


Boland Carpets Cup Final

The top two sides in division 2A met in this final with the unbeaten Castledockrell United going in as hot favourites against divisional runners up Shilelagh United and they looked to be living up to that tag when Ellen Kelly gave them the lead. However Shilelagh showed great character and got back on level terms through Amy Bermingham  and a late Fiona Byrne goal gave the Wicklow side victory.


Leinster Womens Shield Final

Wexford league side Benfica FC lifted the Leinster Womens Shield on Sunday when trouncing Malahide United 7-0 in Bunclody. The Waterford girls were always in control and showed that they are returning to full strength as they never allowed their high profile opponents in to the game. Goals from Becky Conroy (3), Carol Breen (2), Sharon Brown and Brianne O Connor saw Benfica run out comfortable winners


Womens Premier Division

Adamstown completed their season on Sunday morning with a 4-0 win over North End United and kept alive their chances of finishing runners up. Goals from Aisling Whelan, Nikki Dunphy, Katie White and Ann Marie Dunphy saw the home side control the second half after a scoreless first half.


Womens Division One

Glen Celtic did enough to ensure survival in division one after overcoming Cloughbawn second team 2-1, a result that sees the Clonroche side relegated. Emma O Neill and Jenna Sludds were on target for Celtic to give them a vital three points.
