THERE was great excitement in Enniscorthy last week as St Patrick’s School and near neighbours, Gaelscoil Enniscorthy, faced off against each other for the end of year soccer league decider.

The game took place on the St Patrick’s School campus with the two teams level on points and faced with a playoff. Tension was in the air and the referee James fortune had a tough, competitive game on his hands and with supporters from both schools out in force it led to a great atmosphere. St Patrick’s scored first with a brace for Shane fortune going into halftime. However, Gaelscoil came back on stroke of half-time with a goal from Blathnaid Cullen. After the break and following a stern team talk from coach, Cllr John O’Rourke, St Pat’s pulled it to 3-1 but Gaelscoil responded with a goal from Saoirse Fortune. However, St Pat’s had done enought and won the league by 25 points to 22. Thank was conveyed to Wexford County Council for financial support, coaches Kevin Dugdale, Podge O’Toole, Sean Lambert, Brandon Mills, Miley Fortune and manager,  Cllr O’Rourke, and to Gaelscoil, Youthreach Enniscorthy PLC students for participating during the season.
