Curracloe set for top flight next season

East End United and Benfica both booked their places in the Wexford Women's Cup quarter-finals thanks to wins over Killenagh Wanderers and Fastnet Rovers respectively.

Adamstown are through to the semi-finals of the Premier One Shield after a 4-0 win away to New Ross Town in a game that was long delayed due to the weather and Adamstown's involvement in Leinster competitions.

A 3-0 win away to St. Leonards has ensured that Curracloe United will be playing in the Premier Division next season, with Katie Sludds, Fiona Bennett and Kellie Kearney scoring the all-important goals.

Piltown and Bree United both secured promotion to Division 1 after hard-earned draws away to Corach Ramblers and St. Joseph's respectively. It was a big day for Corach as they were presented with their trophy by League Vice-Chairman Barry Dempsey after their game with Piltown.

Even though there is still a few games to go in Division 2B, the top four teams have broken away from the chasing pack and look to be the four that will take the automatic promotion spots.

Cloughbawn's second team, Courtown Hibs, Seaview's second team and Rosslare Rangers all picked up points on Sunday, and one of them will need to slip up to allow any of the other seven into contention.

Wins for Curracloe United and Ballindaggin have firmly moved them both into pole position to challenge for the Under-10 Premier title.

Polly Redmond (four), Emma Cullen and Caoimhe Whelan were all on target for Curracloe as they overcame New Ross Celtic 6-3, with Aoife Kielthy (two) and Sophie Chapman scoring for Celtic.

Emily Roban and Cerys Fortune were both on the mark for Ballindaggin as they beat Kilmore United 2-0 to keep their title hopes alive.

In the Under-14 league, Campile United overcame Courtown Hibs 4-1 in the big game in Division 1 thanks to goals from Amy Ennis (three) and Eadoin Kent, while Ella Maree hit the net for Hibs.

Shelburne moved joint top of the table in Division 2A after they eventually overcame Tombrack 4-3, with Katie Murphy (three) and Eimear Morrissey on target for the Ballywilliam side while Becky Connaughton (two) and Shannon McGovern scored for Tombrack.

St. Joseph's remained unbeaten at the top of Division 2B when they travelled to Taghmon United and came away 3-0 winners with Eleanor Hammel, Ella Donohoe and Ciara Lyons all finding the net.

It was also a big day for Arklow Town as they recorded their first win of the season after making the long journey to New Ross Celtic and coming away 5-2 victors. Ella Jenkinson (two), Katie and Aoife Kavanagh and Lucy Kimel were all on target for the visitors.

This week will see the Wexford Schoolgirl League's Under-14 and Under-16 squads travel to Waterford to participate in the annual Viking Cup. The Under-14 squad will be in action on Wednesday and Thursday while the Under-16s will play on Thursday and Friday.
