Disappointment for Wexford Youths in second Champions League outing

The Irish club lost 6-0 to Polish side Medyk Konin this evening.

Medyk Konin 6-0 Wexford Youths

WEXFORD YOUTHS HAVE suffered a heavy defeat in the second game of their Women’s Champions League qualifying group.

Having begun the campaign with an excellent 1-0 win over top seeds Gintra Universitetas of Lithuania on Tuesday, the WNL champions faced hosts Medyk Konin.

Wexford Youths huddle The Youths team huddle before kick-off.

The Polish club, also on three points after their demolition of Cardiff Met, were buoyed by the home crowd and got off to the perfect start as a freak goal saw Katarzyna Daleszczyk open the scoring after a clearance rebounded off her and spun into the net inside the first five minutes.

On 18 minutes, they broke quickly and Agata Tarczynska set up Aleksandra for a second. Youths goalkeeper Mary Rose Kelly pulled off a fine save from Tarczynska and they went in at half-time trailing by two goals.

Things got worse for Will Doyle’s team after the break, however, as Patrycja Balcerzak scored twice, Tarczynska got her name on the scoresheet and Daleszczyk doubled her personal tally.

With only one club from each group progressing to the knockout stages, Youths are now unlikely to go through even if they can overcome Cardiff Met on Sunday (4pm).

MEDYK KONIN: Szymanska, Dudek (Pakulska 79′), Sikora, Nikolic, Slavcheva, Gawronska, Grad (Grzywinska 86′), Daleszczyk, Ficza, Tarczynska (Sturanovic 86′), Balcerzak.

WEXFORD YOUTHS: Kelly, Gleeson, Fahy, Kennedy (c), O’Riordan (Cassin 78′), Breen (Murphy 39′), Rossiter, Hansberry, Frawley, Sinnott, Delahunty (Douglas 60′).
