Wexford FC Another big weekend of action for our club, @WexfordFC Men have their final game of 2018 at Ferrycarrig, our U17s &… https://t.co/Towfcwu2w4

Wexford Youths Women continued their unbeaten start to the season with a comfortable but narrow 1-0 win over U.C.D Waves in Jackson Park at the weekend and after the first series of matches find themselves placed third in the table behind Peamount United and League leaders Shelbourne LFC just two points off the top but with a game in hand.

Rianna Jarretts second half goal was enough to take all three points as she finished a sweeping move and converted superbly from an Orla Casey cross with a left footed shot tucked into the corner of the net. It was well deserved as Youths were in total control of a young U.C.D side at that point and had created some excellent opportunities particularly in the first half when Jarrett, Becky Conroy and Aisling Frawley all came close to opening the scoring.

The second half was a much closer affair but Youths almost doubled the lead when Conroy shot narrowly wide before Waves finished strongly without really testing Sophie Lenhan in goal, Dearbhaile Beirne coming closest with a long range effort that just cleared the crossbar. The experience of the reigning champions saw out the game in relative comfort and puts them in a good position as they head back to Dublin on Saturday to take on one of the favourites for this years title Shelbourne LFC at the AUL complex in what should be a cracking game.

Wexford Youths Women: Sophie Lenehan, Nicola Sinnott, Lauren Dwyer (Katrina Parrock 73), Orlaith Conlon, Becky Cassin, Edel Kennedy, Kylie Murphy (c), Becky Conroy (Orla Casey 60), Claire O'Riordan (Amy Walsh 80), Rianna Jarrett and Aisling Frawley.  Subs Not Used: Amy Walsh, Ciara Delaney, Clionagh Ni Shi and Rachel Hutchinson.
