Town fly high against Pegasus
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.
