On Sunday morning we welcomed Rathnew to Dunbur for the Wicklow U20 football B championship semi-final. St. Patricks started well with Jack Dunne opening the scoring with a goal. Both teams upped the intensity of the game and went in at half time level: St. Patricks 1-05 Rathnew 1-05. Rathnew opened the scoring in the second half with St Pats drawing level with a goal from Luca Rampersaud and a free from Jack Dunne. Unfortunately Rathnew held on at the end to win by the narrowest of margins – Full Time: St. Patricks 2-07 Rathnew 2-08. Rathnew go on to play Eire Og Greystones in the final.
