Men's B team showing improvement with every game

Wexford Football League Division Five

All Blacks  3  Tombrack United  1

Our men's second team put in a hard working determined performance against promotion chasing All Blacks before eventually going down 3-1. After last weeks strong performance against Shelburne, the lads did not start this game strongly and Evan Murphy was called on to make two excellent saves before Tombrack settled into any shape and began to press forward. However, All Blacks got the break on twenty minutes when a good cross found their forward unmarked and headed to the back of the net. This gave Tombrack a lift and went in search of an equaliser which eventually came ten minutes later when Daniel Vickers found space in the box and shot past the advancing keeper. Evan continued to impress in the goal with a couple of saves, one of them saw him being caught high on the chest by the studs of the incoming attacker. Thankfully, he was able to carry on but a few minutes later, the home side found space on the right and there was no stopping the shot as it nestled in the corner to give All Blacks a 2-1 half time lead. 

The second half continued in the vein of the first with some bruising tackles as James Kavanagh picked up a knock in a clash which will leave him with a nasty mark. Josh McMullen, Savo and Mikey Roche all went close before the game was killed off with fifteen minutes to go when they were awarded a penalty and it was duly scored

This was a tough encounter against a side still eager to get promoted but Tombrack showed more grit and determination in the second half as they continue to build in preparation for a promotion push in the new season. This game saw the return of Mikey Roche as well as an appearance from Buggy but overall a good team performance and the lads can now prepare for the final game of the season away to Glynn Barntown

Women continue run of good form

Wexford Women's League Division One

Camolin Celtic  2  Tombrack United  4

Our women continued their good run of form when they made the short journey to Camolin and ran out 4-2 winners to move third in the table. These two sides have enjoyed some close fought encounters over the last few seasons and this game was no different although Tombrack did enjoy some good spells and were deserving winners. Sarah Merrigan had her scoring boots on as she scored a hat trick with Zoe Tobin Cosgrave also on target. Although Camolin were chasing the game, they never gave up and the defence had to work hard to prevent them from getting back into the game

Next Sunday the women are at home to Corach Ramblers in the Michelle Coleman Cup semi-final and on current form, they would have to be given every chance of reaching the cup final

Men go down to Bridge Rovers

Wexford Football League Division One

Bridge Rovers  3  Tombrack United  0

The 3-0 scoreline flattered the home side in the end but Tombrack probably did not create enough chances in a game that was very closely contested with two late goals giving the home side a vital three points. Bridge enjoyed the best of the opening twenty minutes and took a deserved lead on twelve minutes before Tombrack found their feet and went in search of an equaliser. Jamie Walsh had a well struck effort pushed over the crossbar on twenty five minues and had another shot well saved ten minutes later as Tombrack enjoyed their best spell of the game although the home side always looked dangerous on the break

The second half was equally as tightly contested as the first but the home defence stayed strong and reduced Tombrack's chances to long range efforts. Bridge were awarded a penalty on the hour but was off target and as the game moved towards the final whistle, Bridge were awarded another penalty with five minues to go and this time Evan Murphy in the goal had no chance...2-0. As Tombrack piled forward in search of that elusive goal, they inevitable happened when they got caught on the break and Rovers scored in injury time to win 3-0.

This was a game where for long stretches of the game, Tombrack matched their opponents and it was the accuracy in front of goal that proved the difference between the sides in a relegation battle where every point will be vital.
