As I was away last week, below are reports from all the games for the past two weekends

Sunday January 20th

Neil O Sullivan Cup First Round

St Cormacs  1  Tombrack United  1  aet

(St Cormacs won 4-2 on penalties)

A typically dogged cup tie saw these two well matched, hard working sides play out a 1-1 draw for 110 minutes before the lottery of the penalty shoot out eventually saw St Cormacs progress to the second round. Tombrack went ahead in the seventh minute when Mick “Savo” Kelly found space in the area and floated the ball out of the reach into the top corner of the net. St Cormacs came in search of the equaliser but the Tombrack defence worked well at keeping them at bay and held their lead until half time. Six minutes into the second half, St Cormacs were level when heading home a corner and probably enjoyed their best spell of the game as they bombarded the goal for ten minutes. New signing Josh O Byrne came on for Tombrack midway through the half and injected fresh pace in to the attack and was unlucky not to score after just a minute. Kevin Kenny, Savo and Rory Newe all went close before the final whistle sounded and the game went to extra time. St Cormacs always looked dangerous when going forward but Tombrack enoyed the bulk of possession and created five corners in a row but the home side eventually lifted the pressure. No further goals saw the game move to dreaded penalty shoot out and the home keeper became the hero as he saved two of the penalties for his side to progress to the last sixteen. Tombrack left nothing on the field and worked hard throughout, a little bit of good fortune could have seen them scrape through but once the game went to penalties, it becomes unpredictable. In an overall good team performance, JJ, Savo and Aaron all played exceptionally well

 

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Tombrack United  2  Taghmon United  6

Our mens B team have found themselves being dragged into a relegation battle after this poor run of form and they will be disappointed to find themselves second from bottom as they know they are much better than this. This game was scoreless at half time but Taghmon started well in the second half and went 3-0 ahead before Josh McMullen finally pulled one back. The visitors scored another before Kevin Kenny came on as a sub to score but two late goals by Taghmon wrapped up a flattering 6-2 win

 

Wexford Women’s Cup First Round

Bunclody AFC  3  Tombrack United  4

A seven-goal thriller saw our women overcome rivals Bunclody to book a second round meeting with Ferns, winning 4-3 in a typical cup encounter. Goals from Shannon McGovern and Sarah Merrigan had the women 2-0 ahead but Bunclody’s never say die attitude saw them score twice to level at 2-2 just before half time. Shannon and Sarah both scored again to reclaim their two goal advantage but Bunclody refused to lie down and scored again to set up a nervy end to the game. The women did enough to book their place in the last sixteen and will now make the short journey to league superpower Ferns United for what could be a very interesting local derby

 

Saturday January 19th

Schoolboys Under Fifteen Division Two

Fastnet Rovers  1  Tombrack United  2

Our Under Fifteen boys sit joint second in the table as they produced their third win of the season when coming away from Fastnet Rovers with all three points courtesy of this 2-1 win. The home side got the ideal start when going in front after just three minutes but the lads worked hard and got back on level terms when Conor O Toole headed a Patrick Coleman corner to the back of the net. Continuing to press forward, the lads got their reward when the same two players combined again for Conor to score his second. Tombrack hit the crossbar and post and were unlucky not to increase their lead but in the end were happy to leave Rathangan with all three points

 

Wexford Football League Youths Division Two

Tombrack United  2  St Josephs  2

This youths game was thrown on its head on the twenty minute mark when Tombrack had a player sent off as Thomas Jeffers was dismissed for dissent to the referee. As Tombrack reorganised with St Josephs taking advantage to go 2-0 ahead but some hard work by the lads saw them drag themselves back into the game and two goals from Harry Fitzgibbon saw them battle back to take a point

 

Sunday January 13th

Wexford Football League Division One

Kilmore United  1  Tombrack United  1

This top of the table clash was a game of two halves with the wind dictating and having a major impact as the side playing with the strong wind controlled. Midway through the first half, the home side went in front when the lads were unable to clear their lines but the second half performance from Tombrack was much improved. Kevin Kelly scored his first competitive goal for the club to bring the sides back level and despite being reduced to ten men when Jamie Walshe was sent off for an altercation with a Kilmore player, the lads did enough to hold on for a well earned point

 

Wexford Football League Division Four A

Killenagh Wan  2  Tombrack United  1

A slightly understrength B team travelled to Killenagh and put in a strong hard working performance before eventually losing out 2-1. The home side were fortunate to go ahead when a long range hopeful effort found its way to the back of the net just before half time. A thirty yard free kick from Jamie Murphy brought the sides level midway through the second half and it looked like the lads might have earned a point until the home side found the net ten minutes from the end to take all three points

 

Wexford Women’s League Division Two

Tombrack United  3  Fastnet Rovers  1

Our women moved up to second in the table when they came from behind to beat Fastnet 3-1, picking up their fourth league win of the season in the process. Fastnet took the lead fifteen minutes in but Shannon McGovern had the sides level just on the half hour mark, leaving the score 1-1 at the break. Tombrack  were much better in the second half and two goals from Sarah Merrigan gave the girls a well earned three points, keeping their three in a row ambitions alive

 

Saturday January 12th

Schoolboys Under Sixteen Division Two A

Tombrack United  2  Wexford Celtic B 3

The Under Sixteen boys will feel very unfortunate not to have taken at least a point from this game. Adam Jeffers gave Tombrack the lead with a well taken penalty but ten minutes later, Celtic were back on level terms until with five minutes to go to half time, Evan Maher swung in a corner which Leanne Kenny nodded into the net. The visitors were back on level terms just before half time and the game seemed to be heading for a draw when Celtic scored the winner with two minutes to go

 

Schoolboys Under Fourteen Two A

Tombrack United  0  Ballagh United  3

Four games in and although our Under Fourteen boys are performing well, they are not getting the breaks and still waiting for their first point of the season. However, when the team is at full strength, they can match anyone and can still pull themselves to midtable before this long season is over

 

Schoolboys Under Twelve Division Three

Tombrack United  2  New Ross Town B  0

 

Our Under Twelve boys remain in touch with the leaders after this well earned 2-0 win at home to New Ross Town. The lads were in control of this game from the off and while the visitors defended well, they were unable to keep our lads at bay and goals from Eoin Tomkins and Alex Kavanagh
