The time of change in Wexford ladies' football is well and truly making a claim for the 2015 season as Kilmore are the pace-setters after two rounds of the Senior championship.
Kilmore 5-10 St. Anne's 1-6
After beating Shelmalier in the opening round, it was a local derby against St. Anne's on Monday in Rathangan and Kilmore continued their fine form when recording a 5-10 to 1-6 win.
Right from the off they took control with Lisa Power converting a 25-metre free inside the first minute. This was soon followed by three Katrina Parrock points and Johanna Cousins also got in on the act with Kilmore's fifth score.
St. Anne's lifted the siege and Fiona Rochford pointed midway through the half. Katrina Parrock then pointed a 30-metre free and Johanna Cousins added another point.
Katrina Parrock, a new recruit from Shelmalier, scored an excellent goal when she drove the ball to the roof of the Anne's net. Fiona Rochford added a point for St. Anne's before Parrock finished with her fifth point just before the break to leave it 1-8 to 0-2 in Kilmore's favour.
St. Anne's were first off the mark in the second-half with a Fiona Rochford point, but a minute later they found themselves further behind when Lisa Power scored a fine goal.
St. Anne's did get a goal back when Fiona Rochford hit the ball low from a 20-metre free and Lorraine Breen collected it and gave Rachel Power no chance in the Kilmore goal.
Fiona Rochford added a point straight from the kick-out and people thought maybe a comeback was on, but this never happened as Lisa Power scored her second goal to put the game to bed.
Katrina Parrock added another point from a 20-metre free before the best score of the game when Beth Cardiff soloed in from out on the wing and sent an unstoppable shot in to the far corner of Lucy Crosbie's net.
Fiona Rochford added her fifth point before Emma Hore got one back for Kilmore. Lucy Crosbie in the St. Anne's goal, who made some excellent saves, was unlucky for Kilmore's fifth goal when Katrina Parrock's 45-metre free was deflected past her. Niamh Crosbie finished off the scoring when she added a point for the home side before Damien Donovan blew the final whistle.
