Wicklow v Carlow
Carlow go Top of Inter League
21/03 16:30
Wicklow 0 - 7 Carlow

Carlow approached this top of the table clash with Wicklow looking to consolidate their position after a great victory over Kildare in the previous round of fixtures. Wicklow also won their opening fixture away to NEC so a tough fixture was expected. Carlow were having none of the pre-match hype and tore into Wicklow in the 1st minute forcing the Wicklow Keeper into a great save. Carlow continued pressurising the Wicklow defence and were rewarded after 5 mins when Toriq Adegoke opened the scoring. Wicklow forced a couple of half chances without troubling the Carlow Keeper, Tom Wright. Carlow then struck the forward gears with a fantastic period of play which resulted in 5 goals in 7 mins, 2 from James Smithers before James Esser hit a 4 min hat-trick to leave the Wicklow defence in tatters. The 2nd half continued in the same pattern but with Carlow unable to score despite Mark Foley hitting a post and Sean Tracey striking the post/bar after beating 6 players. James Smithers reappeared to seal his hat-trick with a ferocious drive into the top corner after holding off a Wicklow defender. The match finished 7-0 to Carlow and all players deserve all the plaudits for an outstanding display which puts Carlow in pole position for a Leinster Final. The final group game will be home against NEC on April 10 with a draw to guarantee qualification.

A special mention must be made of the Wicklow players who presented our Team with a signed jersey in memory of Mikey Ryan, who passed away recently. Mikey was involved in the FAI Regional Squad with a lot of the Wicklow players and was coached by some of the Wicklow management. A minutes silence was held and Wicklow also have made a donation to Charity in Mikey's name. We in the Carlow Juveniles League would like to thank the Wicklow League for their help and support in these sad times.
