THE WICKLOW LEAGUE will be hoping for a Christmas miracle if they are to qualify for the next stage of the Oscar Traynor trophy.
A positive result against the Meath League this day last week (Wednesday, December 12) would have seen the Garden County side advance. Instead, Wicklow travelled to the Royal County and were on the receiving end of a 7-1 thumping.
The visitors actually took the lead in Meath but their joy was short-lived as the hosts then rammed seven goals past the Wicklow shot-stopper to slam home their superiority. Despite that crushing defeat though, Wicklow can still make it to the next phase. For that to happen, they need the LSL and the LFL to defeat the Gardai and that would see Wicklow secure third spot, which would be enough to see them advance.
