Bray People - - Sport -

Fas­saroe YC 1, Ark­low Town 4: Their pro­mo­tion dreams are still well and truly alive af­ter this con­vinc­ing win over bot­tom side Fas­saroe YC by Ark­low Town.

DIVI­SION 2 Vet­eran Noel McDon­ald struck twice while there was sin­gles for both Kevin Moore­house and Derek Han­ni­gan. Lee Meanie net­ted for the hosts. Avon­more FC 7, Red­bank United 1: Red­bank United’s de­fen­sive woes were again ex­posed last Sun­day af­ter they were on the wrong end of a 7-1 score­line.

Andy Carstairs got his side’s soli­tary ef­fort but it was no match for a ram­pant Avon­more whose scor­ers on the day were Oliver Byrne (3), Larry Byrne, David Byrne, Dean Ga­han and Stephen Porter.

Celtic Stars 0, St. An­thony’s 1: A Philip Brien goal was enough for St. An­thony’s to win the three points in this clash.

The Kil­coole side have now pulled away from the foot of the ta­ble thanks to Brien’s ef­fort and it leaves Celtic Stars lurk­ing in midtable on seven points.

Round­wood 3, Bal­ly­waltrim FC 1: Round­wood kept their place at the top of Divi­sion 2 thanks to this two goal victory over the very young Bal­ly­waltrim side.

Robert Eyre has been in the goals a lot this sea­son and kept it up on Sun­day with two more, while Tom Fitz­patrick also found the net.

St. Kevin’s 3, Ark­low United 0: This win has now put St. Kevin’s within touch­ing dis­tance of first place and to make it even bet­ter, they have at least one game in hand on two of the other top four.

Ark­low United are still in midtable hav­ing played seven games, won two and drawn one.

St. Pa­trick’s 3, En­niskerry YC 1: En­niskerry faced the long trip down the county to face St. Pa­trick’s last Sun­day morn­ing and came home with noth­ing to show for their ef­forts.

Craig Wil­liams did score for the vis­i­tors, his sec­ond goal in as many weeks, but it wasn’t enough for any points as Johnny Arthur’s two goal haul and Stephen McAu­ley’s ef­fort meant Pat’s were go­ing to se­cure their third win of the sea­son so far.
