St. Fer­gal’s and Ark­low United share the spoils

Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -


ARK­LOW UNITED had to come from be­hind to keep their un­beaten record in the U-9 Divi­sion 3 Shield in­tact. The Fern­dale Park side trav­elled to Bal­ly­waltrim on Sun­day to take on St. Fer­gal's and fell be­hind in the 12th minute. The hosts worked the ball well down the left wing and Gary Pur­cell's cross was fired into the net by striker Luke O'Con­nell. Fer­gal's led at half-time but were de­nied a win over the lead­ers when United equal­ized ten min­utes af­ter the restart when Dy­lan Fur­long scored a su­perb free-kick.

United have now lost their grip on top spot due to Grey­stones United pick­ing up a 4-2 win over St. Pa­trick's. The Ark­low side do have a game in hand over 'Stones though. A point for the Saints on Sun­day keeps them in touch with the top two. Best on the day for the hosts on Sun­day were Ser­gio Lopez, James Mo­ran, Ryan Kear­ney, Gary Pur­cell and Luke O'Con­nell.


Ser­gio Lopez, James Mo­ran, To­mas O'Con­nor, Chad Devlin, Jamie Kear­ney, Ryan Kear­ney, Adam Byrne, Adam Melia, Gary Pur­cell, Luke O'Con­nell.
