Corach scored from first ball of the game with a great flick from Natasha Walsh which speedy Trina Sinnott took down well and finished nicely in the back of the net. A tough physical contest from start to finish. Natasha had a lot of chances called as offside however she dug deep to produce her first hat-trick of the year with 3 fantastic goals.

A massive team effort from Corach who are enjoying a great spell of form seeing them top of the table with two games in hand. The girls now have a week off as the Wexford Youths Women are playing in the Women's Cup Senior Final next Sunday.

U15 boys were at home to forth Celtic b today and after a couple of heartbreaking defeats in our last couple of games the boys dug deep today and won 4-3, a decent performance but still plenty to improve on. All 4 goals were scored by Jack Donohoe.

U13's won 5-2 against Cloughbawn today to keep up their unbeaten start to the season. It wasn't their best performance but a great win all the same, with plenty of room for improvement. There are good things ahead for these chaps.

U11 lost 4:3 in difficult conditions down in Fastnet, scorers were Cillian Cullen, Alex Power and Jack Cleary a little bit more luck they could have won the game.

Under 16 girls took on the Tombrack today we were well beating everywhere on the pitch but we managed to score just one goal and it came from one well place pass from Leah Whelan and Jane Rossiter finished it off-heads up girls you tried your best. U12s lost away to New Ross 4-2.
