Hectic week to test Wesley girl’s mettle

Senior Schoolgirl’s Cup – round one update
Wesley set up an enticing last 16 date with St Andrew’s as they had too much in the tank for Loreto, Bray to progress from the first round of the Leinster Schoolgirl’s Senior Cup.

First half efforts from Niamh Sweeney, Sophie Pratt and Anna-May Whelan put them on their way in the first half and they never looked back against the Senior One side.

It starts off a hectic seven-day period in which they will also face Mount Sackville (Thursday, January 19) and High School (Wednesday, January 25) in the Premier League to decide their fate with the three sides all chasing second spot in the Group. Alexandra College confirmed they will top the pool after they got the better of Holy Child, Killiney 3-0.

Elsewhere in the cup, Jane Fennelly’s pair of short corner goals for Mount Anville picked up a big result as they edged past an impressive St Gerard’s outfit 2-1 in an-all Premier tie. And they will have another tricky tie when they travel to Holy Child in round two.

In a similarly tight battle, King’s Hospital got the sole goal to get the better of Santa Sabina and will hope to, once again, the Premier difference tell against Senior One opposition in round two when they meet St Raphaela’s in Palmerstown.

High School, meanwhile, will play what looks to be another round two cracker as they advanced past Our Lady’s Grove and now face Mount Sackville – the pair drew 0-0 earlier in the campaign.
