Enniskerry earn point
SOCCER ROUND-UP OF THE LOCAL ACTION
Arklow Town 2, Enniskerry YC 2: Enniskerry YC returned from Arklow Town last week with a precious point, their first of the campaign.
PREMIER DIVISION The visitors went into the halftime break trailing by a goal to nil, but die hard Leeds United fan Simon Chadwick levelled matters on 63 minutes.
Striker Ger Harvey then put them 2-1 ahead just five minutes later but just as the villagers started dreaming of a precious three poins, Town struck with less than ten minutes on the clock to break their hearts.
Shillelagh United 5, Arklow Town 0: Shillelagh United will have raised a few eyebrows with this extremely convincing win over Arklow Town side.
United only had five points going into this fixture but perhaps they have turned over a new leaf.
Arklow’s Leinster Senior League side may be flying high, but this side aren’t quite enjoying the same fortunes.
Power-house Paddy Byrne struck twice and this was added to by singles from Barry Nolan, David Cullen and Brian Rossiter.
Arklow Celtic 1, Glenview FC 3: The brilliant strike duo of Darren Collopy and Clinton McCormack combined once more to see off the challenge of fourth placed Arklow Celtic.
These three points now see the Bray side move up to second place and more importantly to within two points of St. Peter’s.
Glenview seem to be hitting form at just the right moment, as last week they won 5-1 and this week they hit the back of the net three times, with Collopy converting twice, and McCormack once.
St. Anthony’s 2, Enniskerry YC 0: St. Anthony’s moved up to third place in the Premier Division after seeing off the challenge of Enniskerry YC at Finn Park last Sunday morning.
Having come up from Division 1 last season, the Kilcoole side have been the surprise package this season.
They secured the three points in this one thanks to strikes from Patrick Woods and Colm McGovern.
