Blues shock Reds in final game of season

Shelbourne 0 - Waterford United 1

A patched up Waterford United brought the curtain down on their season in stunning fashion in Tolka Park on Saturday night last. Caretaker manager Derek Browne had only 13 players to work with but despite the limited amount of players available the young side came out on top at the Dublin venue for the second time this season.They also won there (2-0) back in June. Two underage players were the real hero's in this game. Under 17 player Owen Wall scored the only goal of the game just before the interval and Under 19 goalkeeper Matthew Sheehan produced a string of wonderful saves during the course of the contest. This was the second time in a week that Derek Browne had masterminded a victory for the team since

Neighbours face off in final

Sunday last at Walsh Park saw the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling semi-finals decided as the four remaining protagonists sought to make it through the penultimate stage and so secure their place in the final. Reigning holders of the Waterford News and Star Cup, Ballygunner, so impressive throughout the campaign, faced Mount Sion whom thay have played in the final on ten occasions in the last two decades. The opening game of this double header weekend saw Passage, who incidentally beat the Gunners (3-16 to 3-13) for their only win in the competition in 2013, against Dungarvan. The Old Boro were looking for their first win since beating Mount Sion way back in 1941.

Mouthwatering semi-final lineup

Last weekend saw the completion of the quarter finals of the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship. A lights failure in Fraher Field the previous weekend saw Ballygunner and Abbeyside face off once again with a place in the last four still "up for grabs". On the other side of the coin Mount Sion and De La Salle played out a very entertaining draw in Walsh Park so both teams were obliged to return to the Keane's Road venue for part two. The weekend quarter finals began at the famed city venue on Sunday afternoon. From the outset of the competition De La Salle have been a fancy of many scribes while Mount Sion, in the middle of a rebuilding policy had seen their fortunes improve in recent weeks. The drawn game saw little betwen the sides

Waterford United turned on their best display of the season on Sunday afternoon last at the RSC. On a weekend when the stars of the 1965-66 were honoured by the Mayor of Waterford City and County `Cllr Adam Wyse the current crop of young players certainly turned on the style in this game. Playing under the guidance of caretaker manager Derek Browne they dominated the majority of this game and they fully deserved the three points which has brought them level on points with Shelbourne, a team they play on Saturday next in Tolka Park. That will bring the curtain down on their season.There was a real feelgood factor during the course of this game and with the possibility of new investors coming on board things are beginning to look bright for the Blues.

Athlone Town had a chance to make

Thrilling weekend action

Dungarvan became the first team to qualify for the JJ Kavanagh sponsored Waterford Senior Hurling Championship semi-finals as they beat a gallant Roanmore in Fraher Field on Saturday evening following a terrific encounter. The teams finished level 0-17 to 1-14 after normal proceedings had elapsed and so the two protagonists faced a further twenty minute of extras time action. In the end it was the Old Boro and in particular full forward and county star Patrick Curran who put the city side to the sword with a 3-23 to 2-16 final result. Indeed Curran's final total of 2-16 was a phenomenal individual effort but one must also pay a huge tribute to Roanmore forward Billy Nolan who although, playing in a more restricted defensive position, fired over unerringly to keep the Light Blues right in the game, and

Blues crushed by rampant students

UCD recorded their record league win when they hammered Waterford United at the RSC on Friday night last. They went into the game with a ten goal difference over their closest rivals Cobh Ramblers and this outcome has caused much debate throughout the league. Back in November, 1963 Shamrock Rovers defeated Waterford 8-1 in Kilcohan Park and here we were 53 years later and history repeated itself. Three years after that defeat all those years ago the Blues went on to become the top club in the country so hopefully something similar will happen following this mauling. Daire O'Connor gave UCD the lead after 9 minutes when he found the net with a low strike inside the penalty area as the home defenders stood off the visiting striker. The Blues equalised in fortunate circumstances two minutes
