Wexford FC RT @YouthsWomen: ⚽️ Goal number two for @RiannaJarrett from tonight’s 2-1 @YouthsWomen win over @CorkCityFCWomen at Ferrycarrig Park, assis…

A third League defeat in a row for Wexford FC last night as Cobh Ramblers grabbed all three points with a comprehensive 6-1 victory at a rain soaked St.Colman's Park.

Brian O'Sullivan was missing several key players: Danny Furlong, Chris Kenny, Thomas Croke, Sean Callan and Danny Doyle to name just a few, so in came Liam McCartan at right back, Paddy Cahill moving alongside captain Owen McCormack in the centre of defence, while Andrew Farrell made his Wexford FC starting League debut on the wing.

It took a while for the teams to get a grip on the greasy surface, the rain not letting up for the entirety of the 90 minutes, but the home team struck first on 15 minutes when Jaze Kabia converted from close range. Lee Costello almost made an instant reply from a Jack Doherty corner, the young defender unable to direct his header on goal from a narrow angle. Jack Doherty also had a decent half chance but fired wide on 20 minutes before Charlie Lyons doubled the hosts advantage heading in from close range. A third goal arrived shortly before the break, Kabia with another header.

Within five minutes of the restart, Ramblers had a fourth, Owen McCormack with more cruel luck redirecting a dangerous cross into the net. Darragh O'Connor (making his League debut) replaced Andrew Farrell shortly before a small glimmer of hope for Wexford FC when Jack Doherty converted from the penalty spot in the 55th minute. Nika Arevadze had a fine long range effort saved by Mylod but all hope of any miracle comeback was erased with two goals in the space of four minutes for the home team, Cian Leonard and Stephen Kenny putting the icing on the cake for the Rams in the 76th and 80th minute.

It doesn't get any easier in the coming weeks, on Friday another away trip (out of our 5 competitive games in all competitions so far we've had one home fixture), this time to Tolka Park to face title favourites Shelbourne and then current First Division League leaders Bray Wanderers come to Ferrycarrig on the 22nd.
