DLR Waves 0-2 Wexford Youths

DLR Waves hosted Wexford at the UCD Bowl. The opening exchanges were fairly even with both sides cancelling eachother out. The deadlock was broken through Belssing Kingsley’s goal which game out of nowhere. Aoibeheann Clancy scored off a rebounded freekick late on to seal the win. Wexford have finished in the top section of the league, despite still having a phase 1 game remaining against Galway.

There was a special guest at the UCD Bowl. Abi Ward has been working tirelessly to raise money for Pieta House and Focus Ireland. Abi has been doing 4K a day for 19 days, then on day 20 she is running a half marathon. Graham Kelly and the rest of the DLR Waves team invited Abi to the game on Saturday.
