salthill 1 - 2 waterford united Across the Back by Booter

Despite having to play second fiddle to Salthill Devon for long periods, Waterford United reeled off their second win on the trot when they came back home from Galway with a vital win on Friday night last. The game was poor standard-wise, but a brace of goals from Paudie Quinn made the long journey home a happy one for the loyal band of supporters who made the trip to the west.

The hosts almost took the lead on 18 minutes when Brian Gaffney rose high to meet a corner kick taken by Derek O'Brien but Michael Coady kicked the ball off the line. Waterford took the lead on 21 minutes when Darragh Walshe displayed good footwork before firing in a shot which the Salthill Devon goalkeeper could only parry and when the

late strike nets blues another three points

It took until the third minute of injury time, but Paudie Quinn's second strike of the night at the Drom Soccer Park earned the Blues a priceless second three points in a row, and begins their climb up the table towards the business end. On the back foot for a lot of the second half, United nevertheless kept themselves in the game, and were ready to ruthlessly take the vital opportunity when it presented itself. With confidence slowly growing, another testing tie is in the offing when Cobh Ramblers arrive at the RSC this Friday, and a third win on the spin would surely signal a turnaround of the team's fortunes, and see them re-establish their title challenge. Much rests on this key game on Friday night!

The son of Galileo was considered a leading Epsom Derby prospect going into the race and he didn't disappoint, leading over a furlong out and drawing away to score by 1 3/4 lengths. The O'Brien's other stakes success came in the Listed Heritage Stakes, with Declaration Of War stamping himself as a Group 1 prospect by running out the impressive 2 1/2 lengths victor.

Galway end Waterford interest

It was a make or break game for both Waterford and Galway on Sunday last in the Allianz National Hurling League as the winner would claim a place in the knockout semi-final stage while for the loser it was the end of the road and worse still, could potentially place them in a relegation dogfight. Waterford sat on top of the league with victories over Clare and Tipperary and a draw with Cork e ensuring that anything other than a loss would, on the head to head, put them in the semi-final. For Galway it was simple, a win and the would progress. After the late late show against Tipperary the previous week there was real anticipation within the local followers, allied to our recent good record against the Tribesmen, that we could get the required result

wexford y ouths 2 - 1 waterford united Across the Back by Booter

Waterford United's season took another turn for the worse in Ferrycarrig Park on Friday last and now they are propping up the table beside SD Galway. One point from a possible twelve tells it's own story. Next up is a visit from Athlone Town, who are managed by Roddy Collins and that is going to be another tough game for a team which lacks spirit at the moment.

The Blues could have went in front after seven minutes when Seamus Long played a ball out to the left for Paul Quilty, who laid the ball back to the edge of the penalty area for Paudie Quinn but his cheeky right-footed effort was magnificently tipped over the crossbar by Wexford Youths keeper Graham Doyle.

Waterford were celebrating the lead goal less than
