Top two in fine form

Bray People - - SPORT -

FAS­SAROE YC A and New­town United B are the hot favourites for the top two places in Divi­sion 2 and they show no signs of stop­ping their win­ning ways any­time soon.

Jay Tay­lor and Tony Conway notched ei­ther side of half­time for New­town, while Noel Bres­lin and Stephen Nolan were on tar­get for the Mag­pies. And it looked like both sides were go­ing to get a share of the spoils un­til Conor Ec­cle­ston popped up in the 92nd minute to steal vic­tory right at the death for his side.

Fas­saroe also en­joyed a win by a sin­gle goal mar­gin this week­end. They trav­elled the short dis­tance to the Bal­ly­waltrim Recre­ational Park to take on Bal­ly­waltrim FC. Keith Byrne fired the vis­i­tors ahead in the sec­ond minute be­fore Dar­ren Devlin lev­elled mat­ters on 12 min­utes.

Dan Kelly then scored what proved to be the win­ning goal a minute into first half in­jury-time.

Celtic Stars are also hopeful of com­pet­ing in the Wick­low League's sec­ond tier next sea­son and they made it five wins on the spin on Sun­day with a 0-4 win over strug­gling Carnew AFC, who were forced to start the game with just nine men. Daniel Egan, Tony Byrne, Lukasz Niewiadom­ski and Pavel did the dam­age to Carnew with a goal apiece.
