Under Ten Cup Final

Curracloe United 0 Rosslare Rangers 1 aet

One of the best finals of the Schoolgirls final day in St Josephs on Saturday was the youngest age group which saw premier champions Curracloe United up against a very strong Rosslare Rangers side. In front of a very large and enthusiastic crowd, the under ten girls showed no nerves and produced an excellent final that shows the future of the game in the county is very strong. Some good goalkeeping and defending from both sides saw no goals in normal time and the game went to extra time where Rangers prolific goalscorer Bobbi Culleton scored the only goal of the game to give her side their first underage trophy. Despite Curracloe going close in the second half of extra time, Rangers held on with their captain Abigail Clarke collecting the player of the match trophy

Under Ten Division One Semi Final

New Ross Celtic are through to the league final when they proved too strong for Taghmon running out 7-2 winners on Saturday. Caoimhe Keher Murtagh (3), Casey Murphy (3) and Aoife Kielthy were on target for Celtic while Hannah Kehoe scored both Taghmon goals.

Under Twelve Cup Final

Ballindaggin 1 Courtown Hibs 1 aet

(Courtown Hibs won on penalties)

These two sides opened the days finals in St Joseph's on Saturday and it took just twenty seconds for the first goal to be scored when Katie Bates struck to give Ballindaggin the lead. It was short lived as three minutes later, some good passing movement from midfield saw player of the match, Ella Maree score to bring Hibs level. The game built in intensity for the remaining thirty seven minutes of normal time with Orlaith Kehoe going close for Balindaggin and Amy Robertson almost scoring for Courtown. Both sides created chances in extra time but both goalkeepers, Emilia Fortune (Ballindaggin) and Jean Kavanagh Doyle (Courtown Hibs), were both in excellent form and conceded no further goals. The game then went to penalties where Hibs held their nerve to complete the league and cup double as they had also pipped Ballindaggin for the premier title

Ellen O Connor, Aine McDonald and Caoimhe Keher Murtagh (2) scored the all important goals.

Under Fourteen Cup Final

Cloughbawn AFC 5 Tombrack United 0

Premier champions Cloughbawn went into this final as odds on favourites against division two runners up Tombrack United but despite enjoying plenty of possession, they found the young Tombrack side difficult to break down. Some good defending kept Cloughbawn at bay until just before half time with Katie O Toole in the Tombrack goal putting in an excellent performance. However just before half time, Emma Clarke was on hand to tap the ball to the net after Katie had made two point blank saves and it proved to be a critical goal at an important time. Tombrack did create chances in the second half but the Cloughbawn defence held firm and as the game wore on, Cloughbawn became more dominant and a second goal from Emma Clarke as well as goals from Brid Madigan, Anais Curran and Tara Doyle saw them complete the league and cup double. The winners Emma Clarke collected a well deserved player of the match award

Under Fourteen Premier Division Relegation Play Off

Bunclody and Kilmore United finished level on points in the table and had to meet for the third time in three weeks to decide who would be relegated.

Maeve Sinnott was on target for Bunclody

Under Fourteen Division One

Gorey Rangers travelled to New Ross Town on Wednesday evening and kept their title ambitions alive with a 3-1 win.

Ger Dunne Under Sixteen Cup Final

Curracloe United 6 Bunclody AFC 2

These two premier sides produced a better game than the scoreline suggests and it was Curracloes clinical finishing that proved the deciding factor between the two sides. The game was evenly matched up until midway through the second half, two almost identical goals from Dearbhla Doyle in three minutes saw Curracloe take a 2-0 lead. Britney Conroy did pull one back for Bunclody just before the break but a strong second half performance from Curracloe saw them race into a 6-1 lead with goals from Siobhan Doolan and a hat trick from player of the match Jessie Harding. Britney Conroy scored a spectacular long range effort to pull one back for Bunclody but Curracloe held on to retain their cup and lift it for the fifth time in six years

Under Eighteen Cup Final

Curracloe United 0 Killenagh Wanderers 0 aet

(Curracloe won on sudden death penalties)

Both these teams have produced some exciting hard fought encounters in recent seasons and this Under Eighteen Cup final in Moyne Rangers on Tuesday was no different. Both sides are very familiar with each other at this point and from an early stage in this match, it was obvious that chances were going to be at a minimum. Despite the lack of goals, the game was a closely contested battle although neither team were able to impose themselves on the game, eventually going to extra time and finally penalties where Curracloe held their nerve to become the first team to retain this particular cup. League committee member Tom "Flash" Dunne was on hand to present the cup to the winning captain with the winners Leanne Corrigan collecting the player of the match award
