FAI Under Eighteen Inter League Southern Group
Cork League   7          Wexford League         2
The scoreline might read 7-2 but the game was much closer than this as the Wexford side put up a spirited battle before eventually bowing out of the competition to a very clinical and well organised Cork side. Wexford drew first blood when a well taken corner from Britney Conroy caused chaos in the area before Linda Bradley tapped the ball across the line into the net. The lead was shortlived as Cork bounced back and were quickly back on level terms and scored twice more before the break to lead 3-1 at half time. The second half saw the Wexford side have to cope with windy conditions as well as the slick passing of the Cork side and four more goals from the home side saw them comfortably book their place in the semi-finals before Natasha Byrne scored a late consolation for the Wexford side.
Despite the heavy defeat, Wexford did enjoy periods of the game where they controlled possession but the home side were very clinical in front of goal but manager Alan Browne and his management team can be proud of the efforts from their squad and can look forward to the coming years with confidence. Well done to all involved.

Squad: Grainne McCabe, Doireann Rossiter, Allanah Anglim, Chloe Mythen, Chloe Moynihan, Natasha Byrne, Lauren Roche, Linda Bradley, Niamh Browne, Britney Conroy, Sandra Murphy, Laura Rice, Meghan Keane, Sarah Siggins, Laura Butler, Sadbh McCarthy
