Bray People - - Sport -

PREMIER DIVI­SION Ark­low Town A 1, Glen­view FC 1: Glen­view faced the long dif­fi­cult trip down to face Ark­low Town last week and de­spite tak­ing the lead, the Bray side were pegged back and had to set­tle for a point.

Glen­view have now played five league game sand are on seven points, while Ark­low have one af­ter three games.

Craig Led­with go the equal­izer for Town. Ark­low Celtic 4, Ash­ford Rovers 4: A match full of in­ci­dent and not one for the faint hearted ended with Ash­ford Rovers hav­ing two men sent off for vi­o­lent con- duct and both sides with a point to show for their ef­forts.

Goals from Craig Quinn, Danny Byrne and Bren­dan Man­ning as well as own goal left Ash­ford 4-1 up but Celtic fought back to level the scores with broth­ers Ed­win and Peter Walker scor­ing while Barry Mo­ran net­ted a brace (and missed a penalty for his hat-trick).

An Ark­low Celtic player then had to be taken to hospi­tal af­ter be­ing on the re­ceiv­ing end of a head butt. St. An­thony’s A 5, Shil­le­lagh United 0: St. An­thony’s main­tained their 100% record in the Premier Divi­sion thanks to this con­vinc­ing 5-0 win over Wick­low Cup champi- ons Shil­le­lagh United at Finn Park.

Colm McGovern will have gone home with the match ball af­ter scor­ing three and Martin Wil­liams and Barry Hamil­ton also con­trib­uted a goal each for the Kil­coole out­fit who now sit 5th .. Glen­view FC 0, St. Peter’s Bhoys 1: The team from Lit­tle Bray’s start to the sea­son gets bet­ter and bet­ter but for Glen­view, it’s one point from the last nine avail­able.

Last year’s top two would most cer­tainly be ex­pected to be up there again this year but it is Peter’s who are tak­ing all the plau­dits at the mo­ment and they took all the points last Sun­day thanks to Colm McLaugh­lin’s first half strike.
