Walsh wins it for Tramore FC
ENNISCORTHY TOWN 1 TRAMORE FC 2 THESE TWO sides will have ambitions of doing well in Division 1 this season, and they provided one of the matches of the day when they met in Pearse Road. After a scoreless first-half, Town took the lead early in the second-half when Bridget McDonald scored, but Tramore battled hard and levelled on 70 minutes through Tara Power and snatched all three points when Niamh Walsh scored with five minutes remaining.
St. Joseph's 0, Seaview United 4: A rejuvenated Seaview United opened their campaign with a win away to St. Joseph's and look like a team who could be capable of a title challenge this season.
Goals from Sonja Murphy, Sandra Murphy, Catherine Doyle and Ashling Murphy gave the team, formerly known as Duncannon, their first three points of the season.
Coolgreany Celtic 4, Slaney Rovers 1: Coolgreany opened their campaign with a win at home to newlypromoted Slaney Rovers who played well but found the experienced home team too much to handle on the day.
Karen Morris scored twice with Linda Stevens and Jackie Kinch adding one each, while Carol McGrath responded for the Rathvilly girls.
All Blacks 6, Ferns United B 1: Last year's Division 2 A champions, Ferns United B, found life in their opening Division 1 game a difficult prospect when overrun by a home side who were recovering from a miserable experience in the Premier division last season.
Niamh O'Leary scored for Ferns but two goals each from Aoife Traynor and Róisín Furlong as well as one apiece from Emma Hore and Pam Power gave the home side victory.
Glen Celtic 2, St. Cormac's 7: A young Glen Celtic side found St. Cormac's in fine scoring form as they ran out comfortable 7-2 winners against a youthful home team.
Amy Walsh scored four with Bernie McCarthy adding two, while Stacey Redmond also found the net for the Boolavogue side who are one of the many teams capable of a title bid this season.
