ALL BLACKS AFC
Both mens teams were in action over the last two Sundays and recorded results to ensure that the club finished 2012 and began 2013 on a winning note.
The mens 2nd team were in league action and overcame Wexford Celtic on a 3-1 scoreline. Despite playing with a strong wind at their backs they found it difficult to break down Celtics rearguard. 'Blacks Keeper Fintan Walsh made an outstanding reflex save from an overhead kick and this inspired his team mates who struck immediately just before half time with 2 goals from Shane Sinnott and Brian Kehoe.
Celtic pulled a goal back and exerted huge pressure for much of the 2nd half but quick thinking on an indirect free kick from Shane Sinnott sealed the points near the end.
The mens 1st team advanced to the 2nd round of the Wexford Cup after an eventfull tie in Mayglass against Shelburne on Sunday last. The away side took an early lead but this was immediately cancelled out when Archie Jones picked out Shane Sinnott with a delightfull through ball and he duly lobbed the 'keeper from 20 yards. Shelburne struck again to lead but David Murphy restored parity when he beat the offside trap to round the 'keeper and slot home.
Murphy cooly slotted home a penalty early in the 2nd half after Darragh Kearns was hauled down and Adrian Murphy powerfully headed home a John Codd free kick to make it 4-2. Shelburne pulled a further goal back but it was'nt enough to deny the 'Blacks from advancing to the next round.
St Fintans man Joey Wadding was a member of the Wexford senior football team that suffered a 1-15 to 1-11 defeat at the hands of DIT in an O'Byrne cup game played at Kilanerin on Sunday last. We wish all members of the club involved with County teams during the coming year the best of good luck and to enjoy the experience.
