Rath­new rule roost

Bray People - - SPORT -

RATH­NEW AFC went where no U-17 League side have gone be­fore at the week­end when they in­flicted a first league de­feat of the sea­son on Lif­fey Val­ley Rangers.

The two went toe-to-toe at Sham­rock Park on Satur­day af­ter­noon and with the hosts still boast­ing a 100 per cent record and the vis­i­tors still cling­ing onto their un­beaten record, some­thing had to give.

And it proved to be the lat­ter af­ter a goal apiece from Shane Doyle and Eric Dunne helped them to a 2-0 win over the Dublin side.

Rath­new now move into sec­ond spot in the ta­ble, a mere four points be­hind Rangers, but with three games in hand.

The Vil­lagers were un­for­tu­nately the only Wick­low side who en­joyed a suc­cess­ful week­end, with St. An­thony’s crash­ing to a 7-1 de­feat against Ty­mon Celtic.

There were also vic­to­ries for Granda A and Granada B this week­end.
