Bray People - - Sport -

Ark­low Town 3, Pe­ga­sus 1: Ark­low Town moved into fourth place in Le­in­ster Se­nior League Divi­sion 1 af­ter a comfortable 3-1 victory over Pe­ga­sus at Bridgewater Cen­tre Park last Satur­day evening.

The game opened in dra­matic fash­ion with the away side be­ing awarded a penalty af­ter Town de­fender William Tyrrell was deemed to have fouled a Pe­ga­sus at­tacker in­side the box.

The vis­i­tors duly took the lead de­spite the best ef­forts of Ea­monn Doyle in the Ark­low goal.

The lead did not last long as Town, sparked into life af­ter the early set­back, laid siege on their op­po­nent’s penalty area, with Kenny Keogh lively down the left flank and John Fen­nell a hive of ac­tiv­ity up front along­side Gra­ham Lawlor.

It was Lawlor who turned his marker on the edge of the box and with the ‘ keeper ad­vanc­ing he sim­ply rolled it by into an empty net, to level mat­ters.

William Tyrrell atoned for his ear­lier mis­de­meanour on the quar­ter hour mark when lob­bing the Pe­ga­sus keeper with a well-placed header from a su­perbly drilled free-kick from Stephen Hur­ley.

Town in­creased their lead af­ter thirty min­utes, with John Fen­nell de­servedly get­ting his name on the score­sheet. Gra­ham Lawlor flicked on a pass into the path of Chris Far­rell and he put the ad­vanc­ing Fen­nell through.

Fen­nell made no mis­take when round­ing the keeper to in­crease Town’s ad­van­tage and the three wel­come points add a grow­ing be­lief to the team’s drive for pro­mo­tion.
