Wil­liams dou­ble wins it for St. An­thony’s

Bray People - - SPORTS -

ST. AN­THONY’S con­tin­ued their good start to the new sea­son with an­other win at the week­end.

The Kil­coole side wel­comed New­town United to Finn Park and won by a sin­gle goal mar­gin with a 2-1 win. Ja­son Fitzsi­mons net­ted for the vis­i­tors but a Martin Wil­liams dou­ble en­sured that it would be the Saints who would be tak­ing home the points on Sun­day. That is now two home games for Anto’s and two wins and it looks like An­thony’s will be turn­ing Finn Park into a fortress this sea­son and with a strike­force of Dar­ren Col­lopy and Wil­liams up front they will al­ways carry a goal threat.

Glen­view FC, who opened the sea­son with a 3-3 home draw against Ark­low Town, got their first win of the sea­son thanks to a 5-1 drub­bing of Ark­low Celtic at the Celtic Park.

It was the Ark­low’s side first out­ing of the sea­son and it cer­tainly wasn’t the start they would have been hop­ing for. Paul Far­rell, twice on tar­get for the Glens’ sec­ond team last week, proved he could hack it at the top level net­ting a su­perb hat-trick with Tony Har­ris and Clin­ton McCormack com­plet­ing the scor­ing for the Bray side. Brian Mo­ran was the man re­spon­si­ble for the Ark­low side’s goal.

There two other matches that went ahead in the Premier Divi­sion this week­end, with Ash­ford Rovers trav­el­ling to Fin­lay Park to take on Wick­lowTown and St. Peter’s Bhoys mak­ing the short trip to Ve­vay Sports Field for their match with Wolfe Tone Celtic.

Ash­ford’s Jay Tay­lor gave his side the lead early in the first half but things were all square at the break thanks to Den­nis Vick­ers’ lev­eller. Nei­ther side could find the win­ner in the sec­ond pe­riod how­ever so a point apiece was the out­come.

Mean­while, Wolfe Tone and Peter’s played out a 0-0 draw mean­ing Celtic move on to four points and the Saints have got off the mark for this sea­son.

An­other team who got off the mark on Sun­day were Shil­le­lagh United who picked up three points cour­tesy of Rath­new AFC award­ing them a walkover.
