Wexford FC 2
Cabinteely FC 2
Wexford came from behind to draw this U-17 contest against Cabinteely in Ferrycarrig Park on Saturday afternoon.
The early exchanges were pretty even with chances falling to both teams, a Cabinteely header from a corner deflected wide off the crossbar, and the Wexford keeper, David Murphy, pulled off a great safe from a Cabinteely shot on the edge of the box.
In the 35th minute, a Dylan Casey header, put the home-side in front from a corner, and thats the way it remained at the break.
A defensive error let the visitors back into the game early in the second half, David Baker’s accurate shot found the back of the net.
The home -side were down to 10 men with 25 minutes to go as Shane Gibson was sent off for a silly push in front of the referee.
In the 70th minute a Wexford shot struck the crossbar, it looked to have crossed the line, despite appeals from the home side the officials waved play on, and from the counter attack, the visitors were awarded a penalty- 2-1 Cabinteely.
Two minutes from time justice was done as Brody Murphy grabbed an equaliser for the home side.
