Women suffer semi-final heartbreak

Published: Monday, 03 August 2020 09:25

Michelle Coleman Cup Semi-Final

Tombrack United  1  Corach Ramblers  2

After drawing 2-2 in the league a couple of weeks ago, this cup semi-final was always going to be a close hard fought encounter with both sides giving full committment, both eager to finish out their season with a cup final. It was the visitors who got the better start and went 1-0 up after twenty minutes and it was a lead they held until half time despite Tombrack going close to levelling on a couple of occasions. When they doubled their lead in the second half, it looked over for the women but they showed great character and determination and were rewarded with a well taken Amie Dreelan goal ten minutes from the end. Severe pressure on the Corach goal failed to break down a well organised visitors defence and they held on for the 2-1 win and progress to the final against either Camolin or Bree

That completes a long season for the Women where they finished third in Division One and manager Sean McGovern will be eager to get back into action next month as the team will hope to build on this years strong performance. It could have been so much better only lack of numbers at the start of the season ended up proving costly in the end but well done to Sean, Bridget and the Women on a good season

Good performance gets vital three points for Men against Adamstown

Wexford Football League Division One

Tombrack United  4  Adamstown  1

A strong overall performance saw the lads pick up a vital three points in their battle against relegation as they overcame Adamstown 4-1 in Ballyboy. A first half goal from Mattie Hendrick had them 1-0 up at half time in a game where they were comfortably in control and were dealing well defensively with anything the visitors produced. However, a lapse of concentration early in the second half allowed Adamstown in to score an unlikely equaliser but it was the kick that Tombrack needed as they bounced back with two quick goals from Kevin Kenny and David Power before a late goal from Mick "Savo" Kelly rounded off a 4-1 win. Tombrack ended the game with ten men as Eoin Carton was sent off after a clash with an Adamstown player

Two big games coming up now as the lads face Bridge Rovers in Ballyboy on Thursday evening followed by a home against promotion chasing Glynn Barntown on Sunday

Wexford Schoolgirls League Division Two A

Tombrack United  1  Bridge Rovers  2

This top of the table clash was a close fought encounter with both sides chasing the win, knowing that the three points would put them in a very strong position heading into the final games of the season. Tombrack got the better start and a goal from Megan Hayes had them 1-0 up at the break but the divisional favourites, Bridge Rovers, came on the attack in the second half drawing level midway through the half. The game seemed to be heading for a draw but a goal for Rovers thirty seconds from the final whistle broke Tombrack's hearts, disappointed after producing a strong hard working display for the hour. If Bridge slip up in their final game of the season, Tombrack still have a chance of forcing a play-off if they can beat New Ross Celtic away so still plenty to play for

Youths end season with two defeats

Wexford Youth League Division Two

Tuesday July 28th 2020

Ballymurn Celtic  3  Tombrack United  1

Saturday August 1st 2020

Tombrack United  1  Ferns United  2

Our Youths side brought the curtain down on the 2019-20 season with two good performances but no points as they went down 3-1 to title challengers Ballymurn Celtic on Tuesday night and then 2-1 to local rivals Ferns United on Saturday.

One of their best performances of the season saw them push second placed Ballymurn all the way with two late goals for the home side giving them a flattering 3-1 victory which at that point still kept alive their chances of catching leaders Shelburne United. Josh McMullen was on target Tombrack in this match in a performance where they matched the home side for long periods in the game but just missed out in the end from getting something from this game

On Saturday, the lads completed their season at home to Ferns and took the lead through a well taken David Power goal. Tombrack should have increased that lead, missing several chances but ended up paying the price as Ferns hauled themselves back into the game to score two second half goals and take the three points. 

It was a disappointing end to a good season for Tombrack, finishing fourth in a very competitive division which was won by a very strong Shelburne side with Ballymurn finishing runners up. Missed chances in tight games proved crucial in the end for the lads but overall it is a season they can be proud of with several players from this squad already featuring on the men's A and B teams

Well done to Willie and the lads on a good season
