Wexford FC Wexford FC U17 trials for 2019! Trials to take place late December & early January - please contact bmolloy@wexford… https://t.co/OUKEocsz7T

Wexford FC U15s were just 10 minutes away from winning the clubs first ever silverware at Oriel Park on Saturday night, leading 2-1 against a very strong Dundalk FC side but a late controversial equaliser from Jake Waters levelled the game to take it into extra time. There was a major suspicion of handball as Luke Murphy came off his line to palm away a dangerous through ball, the hand of David Doyle seemed to deflect it back into the path of Waters who bundled the ball over the line.

Wexford in fairness had earlier fortune in a frantic opening 20 minutes, the home side hitting the crossbar twice. After weathering the early storm Liam Doyle put Wexford in front with a lovely finish just before half time, dinking the ball over a diving keeper into the net.

Tyler Dunphy had a great chance to make it 2 minutes later, instead volleying over the bar with the keeper stranded. It wasn't long after the restart when Dunphy made sure there was no mistake with his next volley after delightful link up play with Evan Farrell, the tall striker finding the corner of the net to put Wexford in dreamland.

Jake O'Sullivan had the home side back in it 10 minutes later with a left foot strike from outside the box before Waters levelled with 10 to go.

Dunphy was denied by a quick keeper off his line in the first period of extra time, meanwhile Murphy was again busy with good saves from long range efforts from the Lillywhites.

As the second period began legs began to tire, the long trips to Sligo in the semis and to Dundalk for the final beginning to take their toll perhaps, David Doyle put the hosts in front for the first time with a close range finish. As Wexford pushed on for an equaliser with time ticking away, a breakaway fourth goal from Ryan Kinahan with practically the last kick of the game ended the contest, the game finishing up 4-2.

Mark Dorans team gave everything they had and more but it wasn't meant to be but its not going to be the last big contest this hugely talented group of players will be involved in thats for sure.
