Rath­new com­plete dou­ble over Lif­fey Val­ley Rangers

Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -

IF LIF­FEY Val­ley Rangers never see Rath­new AFC again, it'll be far too soon for the Dublin­ers.

Un­beaten in the U-17 League up un­til two weeks ago, Rangers have now suf­fered two con­sec­u­tive losses and it is the Sham­rock Park side that has in­flicted both of those de­feats on the league lead­ers.

On March 12, the pair clashed at Sham­rock Park and goals from Shane Doyle and Eric Dunne brought Rangers' un­beaten record crash­ing to a halt.

The duo got reac­quainted on Sun­day in Dublin and Doyle once again tor­mented the lead­ers as he landed a sin­gle. He was joined on the score­sheet by Philip Mur­phy and Conor Cox as Rath­new recorded a bril­liant 0-3 vic­tory to march to within a sin­gle point of Rangers at the top of the ta­ble.

Grey­stones United also did the Gar­den County proud this week as they romped to a 9-1 win over Rail­way Union A at the Wood­lands.

Sam Thompson, Dean Red­mond and Seán O'Ma­hony all bagged dou­bles at the sea­side venue, while Dar­ragh Browne, Josh Daven­port and Gary El­liot chipped in with sin­gles as 'Stones climbed to third place.

An­other side flex­ing their at­tack­ing mus­cle this week was En­niskerry YC. The Ber­ry­field Lane out­fit trav­elled to Finn Park for an en­counter with St. An­thony's and re­turned home with all three points cour­tesy of a 1-7 thump­ing of the Saints.

Ark­low United, who drew 1-1 with St. Fer­gal’s.
