Victory for Under-16 side

The Wexford Under-16 camogie team got their Leinster championship campaign off to a winning start in St. Patrick's Park, Enniscorthy.

Wexford 2-7 - Offaly 1-4

The Wexford girls played some brilliant camogie, and their tackling, hooking, blocking, passing and support for each other was outstanding. Orla Crowe set the ball rolling with the first point from play, and both Jessie Harding and Lettie Whelan added a point each in the first-half.

Offaly went in at half-time one point up, with three of their four points coming from frees. Wexford introduced Aoife Guiney for Dearbhla Doyle at half-time, and the second period continued in the same manner with terrific camogie on display.

Guiney scored two well-taken goals, Aoife Curran picked off two fine points from play, and Clodagh Jackman chipped in with another. Offaly could only manage a late consolation goal in reply.

It would be unfair to single out any individual for special mention, as this was a real team effort with everyone giving one hundred and ten per cent for the entire game.

The management team of Nick Finn, Willie Peare, Tracey Nolan and Denis Lambert were delighted with the display and must have high hopes of Leinster success with their team.
