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

Quarter-final makeup

The pairings for the JJ Kavanagh Senior Hurling Championship were decided last weekend with a full round of group games on Sunday afternoon. Thankfully the weather relented and conditions, unlike Saturday, werre pleasant enough in all venues. Favourites Ballygunner had already made the knockout stages as indeed had their opponents, neighbours and great rivals Passage but there were bragging rights on offer as well as the two points which would guarantee top spot to the victor. From the outset the Gunners, outright favourites to retain the Waterford News and Star Cup, have shown really impressive form. They began the campaign with a draw against De La Salle but, since then have had wins all the way. Sunday would be a huge challenge to the Knockboy outfit as many are beginning to fancy Passage to reclaim the title they won

Brave Blues lose to Ramblers again

Cobh Ramblers 3 - Waterford United 1

This was the fourth meeting of these clubs this season in the league and the result means that the Co Cork outfit won three and drew one of those contests. Despite another loss to Ramblers there was some positives to be taken from this game considering that the Blues only had two outfield subs and one of those namely Robbie Buckley had to replace David Osasere just before half time and then he had to leave the field himself when he got injured five minutes into the second period. Dara Keane, Dean Walsh and Glen Waters, the player who replaced Buckley were superb for the losers and there is no doubt that there are some very good players coming trough the system at the club.

Cobh took the lead in

Blues and Cabinteely draw a blank

An extremely young Waterford United team were held to a draw by Cabinteely at the RSC on Friday night last.Players such as Owen Wall, Roy Butler and Dara Keane had to line out due to the fact that many players have left the club in recent times due to financial reasons. Anthony McAlavey, James O'Brien, Sean Byrne and Alan Byrne have left the club to reduce the wage bill. It has been a difficult season for the local club who have four more games to play. Next Saturday they are away to Cobh Ramblers who are right back in the play-off race. Two home games against UCD (Friday, September 30th) and Athlone Town (Sunday, October 9th) follow and the curtain will come down on Friday, October 15th away to Shelbourne.

Hurling championship back in full swing

Following the superb efforts of the Waterford under 21 hurling team in claiming the All-Ireland title, it was back to domestic matters last weekend with a full compliment of championship matches. The results at this stage of the competition could or perhaps would have a really bearing on the knockout stages and indeed teams looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone.

De La Salle got their challenge back on track following a 1-18 to 1-14 defeat to one of the outright favourites Passage in the previous round. Their 4-18 to 2-11 win over Ballyduff Upper gives the Stephen Street outfit five points and a place in the knockout stages. Former intercounty star John Mullane opened his goal account in the 12 th minute which edged De La Salle ahead 1-4 to 0-9. Indeed it was

Hibernians remain top in Premier League

With Waterford United not playing last weekend and with the Under 17 team in action in Kerry all of the attention was focused on the Waterford Premier League last weekend and Hibernians made it six wins from six games to stretch their lead at the top of the table. They have yet to concede a goal in this season campaign. Second placed Carrick United were held to a draw so Hibs are now four points clear at the top. The visitors almost took the lead after 2 minutes when Brendan Rea made contact with a left wing corner kick taken by Shaun Corcoran but his header was deflected out for what proved to be a fruitless second flag kick. The evergreen Rea was involved once again on 22 minutes when he pulled the ball back
