Siobhán's late strike wins it for Wexford

FAI U-18 inter-league at Dooradoyle

Wexford made the long journey to foggy Dooradoyle on Sunday afternoon and got their FAI Inter-League campaign off to a winning start when they scored a late winner.

Limerick and District League 1 Wexford and District League 2

Both sides produced some top-class football and it was evident from early on that there was going to be little between the sides. Both goalkeepers performed excellently, and Wexford's Gráinne McCabe produced a player of the match display.

After a scoreless first-half, Wexford eventually broke the deadlock when Siobhán Doolan scored early in the second-half after some good build-up play, but the home side battled back and levelled with just 15 minutes of the match remaining.

As it looked as if both sides might have to settle for a point each, Siobhán Doolan got on the end of a Natasha Byrne cross to score in the 90th minute and earn Wexford an opening day win.

Well done to manager Alan Browne and his team of coaches, and of course the players who produced a great performance despite having such a short time to prepare.

Squad: Gráinne McCabe, Alannah Anglim, Lauren Roche, Chloe Mythen, Chloe Moynihan, Linda Bradley, Aisling O'Gorman, Natasha Byrne, Niamh Browne, Britney Conroy, Siobhán Doolan, Leah Furlong, Laura Rice, Meghan Kane, Rachel Scannell, Doireann Kavanagh, Sandra Murphy.
