The Wexford side, like last week were first to strike, when after just six minutes a rampaging Andrew Rothwell slotted the ball to O’Sullivan who scored the goal after Rothwell received a pin point ball from a line ball by Durnan. The Slaneysider’s had their tails up and were awarded a flurry of short corners but the Dubliners were up to the challenge and saw off the home sides attempts on goal. The pressure kept coming from Enniscorthy, with an excellent attempt from Dunne, who forced the young Railway goalkeeper into pulling off a good save. It remained a one-goal game at half time.
Captain Hill challenged his men who had been the dominant side in the first half to keep putting pressure on their visitors and take all three points. Despite Railway Union starting brightly in the second half it took just ten minutes for Hill and his men to double their score, again through O’Sullivan. The former Wicklow and South East Wanderers player came close to completing his hat trick minutes later but his attempt went narrowly wide. Medcalf looked certain to make it three goals to nil, but as his shot beat the keeper the ball struck the post. Mid way through the second half Doyle’s men did eventually make it three goals to nil, from a short corner scored by Roy Chapman. Railway didn’t give up and Hill and his defence were called upon a number of times in the final quarter, but he wasn’t letting go of his clean sheet. The Wexford men saw out the game, winning three goals to nil, passing the ball around the team, keeping the ball well away from the visitors grasp.
Enniscorthy will be on the road again this coming weekend as they make the journey to Dublin to take on Weston.
