    Wexford FC v Waterford

    Two moments of skill from perhaps the best attacker on the pitch, Phoenix Patterson, gave Waterford the three points in Ferrycarrig tonight, but overall there were lots of periods in the game where the quality wasn’t the best from both teams. Wexford seemed to change their shape from the usual 3-5-2 to 4-4-2 and went with Alex, Paul, Joe, Lorcan, Conor B, Conor C, Dobbsy, Len, Adam, Harry and Jack. Within three minutes, Jack Doherty nearly got through on goal for Wexford but, on nine minutes, Patterson was allowed to drift inside from the left wing into a central position with the ball on his right, and his shot tucked inside the Wexford right-hand post gave Alex Moody no chance. The rest of the first half wasn’t great with Wexford’s front two, Jack and Dobbsy, looking isolated and Waterford mostly content to hit the ball long. A Waterford free which drifted a yard or two wide of the Wexford far post and a couple of Wexford corners which were well-defended by the Blues defence proved to be as near as anyone got to adding to the scoreboard. Wexford’s Conor Barry seemed to be a bit unlucky not to get a peno when he was kicked by a Waterford defender inside the Waterford box with a definite sound of boot on boot but nothing was given. 1-0 to Waterford at half-time.

    Second half saw Frieler coming on for an injured Joe Manley for Wexford and Wexford looked better with a natural right-sided player coming down the right wing to help Paul Cleary who was having a decent game. Despite their efforts and some more corners for Wexford, the home side again found it hard to press Brian Murphy in the Waterford goal to make a decent save. Waterford’s second decent chance of the game came about the hour mark with a free header which fell to Britton, but he didn’t manage to keep it on target. The game was made safe for Waterford on 66 minutes when Patterson got a free kick over the Wexford wall to put the away side two goals ahead. Wexford brought on Thomas Considine and Conor Davis and later Dinny and Jordon but the nearest Wexford came to scoring came right at the end when Frieler had a snapshot from an acute angle which hit the Waterford post. Prior to that, Alex Moody had shown good reflexes to push a Blues header over his own crossbar. So, 2-0 to Waterford at the end with Jack Doherty, Lorcan Fitzgerald and Frieler in the second half being the best for Wexford. Attendance was 756 according to the club’s Facebook page.
