Wicklow Town are too good for league leaders
HAVE WICKLOW Town B not read the Division 3 script?
The Finlay Park side's late promotion push gained significant momentum on Sunday when they travelled to Dunne's Field to take on league leaders Fairwood Celtic.
A Thomas Duffy penalty gave the visitors the lead but Tony Darcy equalized for Celtic to leave things all square at the break.
Wicklow Town got their noses in front again courtesy of a Coxy screamer and Bobby Quinn sealed an impressive win for the away side with a late double to leave the final score at 1-4.
That is the second league match in a row in which Town have bagged four goals and Quinn's brace made it five goals in two league games for the striker.
If they are to realize their Division 2 dreams though, Wicklow Town will have to find a way of stopping Charlesland AFC and Conary United first.
The duo both took advantage of Fairwood's slip-up to move to within three and five points respectively of top spot.
Charlesland AFC required a goal apiece from strike duo Chris Cox and Garry White to see off bottom side Arklow Celtic B. Their goals helped them to a 1-2 win and moved them within touching distance of Fairwood.
Conary United were once again able to miss a penalty, but still ran out 5-1 winners over Redbank United.
Davy Doran, Eddie Roche, Stephen McAuley, Gerry Geraghty and Eoin Murtagh were all on target for the hosts at Rooster's Park.
Hot on the heels of Conary are St. Kevin's. The Saints enjoyed a 3-0 home victory over Wexford side Saints FC to return to winning ways, having suffered defeats in their two most recent outings. Ross Doonan, Cathal Doyle and Brian Hanlon all notched for Kevin's.
Meanwhile, at Finlay Park, Wicklow Rovers were flexing their attacking muscles as they recorded their eighth league win of the season.
Jonathan O'Connor turned on the style as he blashed home three times for Rovers. Edward Dunne, Timmy Kelly and John Paul Dunne chipped in with singles.
There was also just a third league win of the year for Carnew Celtic. They edged past Fassaroe YC B by a goal to nil to move out of the bottom two for the first time this season.
