Ferns rally to see off the seasiders

Soccer: Wexford Football League Round-up

Leaders Ferns United let a two-goal lead slip before rallying to chalk up a 4-2 win in Curracloe on Sunday.

Division 1

The visitors were 2-0 to the good thanks to goals from Jonny Dwyer and Tommy Dwyer but Curracloe managed to pull one back before half-time.

The seasiders then drew level after the interval, but Ferns regained the initiative when an Ivan Meegan cross was turned in to his own net by a Curracloe defender before Jonny Dwyer sealed the deal with a fantastic 25-yard strike.

Bridge Rovers have returned to form of late and they ran out impressive 6-1 winners over St. Cormac's.

All the goals came in the second-half, with Terry Murphy, Terry Gainfort, Kevin Byrne, Mark Mythen and Oisin Firman (two) scoring for the Castlebridge side.

Forth Celtic registered an comprehensive 4-0 win away to St. Joseph's with goals from Lee Busher, Kevin Price, Darren Jordan (penalty) and Jessie Farrell.

Tombrack have plenty of games in hand to make a push for promotion and on Sunday they picked up three points by seeing off Wexford Bohs 3-0 with goals from Richie O'Hara, James Coleman and James Newe.
