Arklow get revenge
ARKLOW UNITED gained revenge for their shock defeat to Glencormac United in their last outing by spanking the Kilmacanogue side 1-6 at Ryder's Field on Sunday afternoon.
Craig Young tore the Glens defence to shreds as he returned home to Ferndale Park with a four-goal haul. Paul Flusk and Eddie Kavanagh were also on the mark for the Arklow side as they stormed back to the top of the table. Kevin Redden netted the hosts' consolation effort.
And that defeat - twinned with St. Fergal's 5-2 triumph over St. Patrick's - has damaged the Kilmac side's hopes of a place in next season's Charlie Bishop Cup.
Fergal's hosted Patrick's on Sunday in a battle of the Saints and it was the Bray side who emerged the victors. Division 1 leading scorer Kieran Conway recorded yet another hat-trick for his side, and he was helped out in the goalscoring department by Paul O'Brien and Ian Flanagan who both landed a goal apiece as their side reclaimed fourth spot from United.
Another Saints' outfit, Saint Anthony's, also enjoyed a successful weekend. The Kilcoole side edged away from the drop zone following a 1-2 win over Wolfe Tone Celtic at the Vevay Temple Sportsfield.
