In the second half a powerful strike by Murphy came very close to opening the scoring for the visitors. Despite the efforts of the Enniscorthy defence who were working well together, Old Alexandra put three goals by the visitor’s 'keeper. Enniscorthy continued to battle hard and push forward and threaten the home sides defence. Super movement by Murphy up the centre of the pitch saw the Wexford side score their only goal of the game. Murphy put the ball through to Hickey who was quick on her feet to slip the ball past the keeper.
Enniscorthy will now break for Christmas before they prepare for their first game of 2018 when they take on Pembroke Wanderers on 13th January.
