Rath­new sink New­town

Bray People - - SPORT -

NEW­TOWN UNITED bid farewell to their un­beaten record this week.

Sham­rock Park was their des­ti­na­tion last Tues­day evening for a date with Rath­new AFC A and the tie seemed to be des­tined to end in dead­lock un­til the 90th minute when the hosts were awarded a penalty.

And Anto Mer­nagh kept his cool to con­vert the spot-kick. That Mer­nagh strike has lifted the Vil­lagers out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone and into the warmth of eighth place.

Also hop­ing to be mov­ing up­wards is Ark­low Celtic A. They rammed home four goals as they de­feated Shil­le­lagh United to record just their sec­ond league vic­tory of the cam­paign.

The Celtic Park out­fit are now within a win of climb­ing out of the drop zone.
