colton's comeback

WICKLOW 3

KILDARE 2

Wicklow staged a remarkable comeback to maintain their 100 per cent record in this season's U16 SFAI Inter-League Paul O'Neill Cup.

Trailing 2-0 with 20 minutes to go at Bridgewater Centre Park in Arklow last Saturday, the home side hit three quick-fire goals in nine minutes to record their second win in the competition.

Tadgh Montgomery gave Kildare a deserved first-half lead.

Defender Dylan Kennedy then scored sensationally straight from the tip-off for the second half to double the visitors' advantage.

But Colton O'Toole pulled one on the hour for the Garden County before Hugh Humby levelled with a sweet volley.

Within moments, O'Toole's deflected cross-shot proved to be the winner as Wicklow climbed above Wexford to top the group.
