Mer­nagh nets stunner

Bray People - - SPORT -

NICKY MER­NAGH struck a stun­ning 90th minute equal­izer at Sham­rock Park on Fri­day night to pre­vent En­niskerry YC from climb­ing out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

The Ber­ry­field Lane out­fit had led go­ing into the dy­ing min­utes thanks to a goal from young­ster Gavin Bar­ton but just at it looked the vis­i­tors would be col­lect­ing their sec­ond league win of sea­son, up popped Mer­nagh to earn his side a point that sees Rath­new rise to sev­enth spot at the ex­pense of Su­gar­loaf FC who now drop down to eighth; a sin­gle point above En­niskerry.

There was also some ac­tion at the top of the ta­ble this week as a Tommy Kelly dou­ble helped Wick­low Town to a 2-3 win over Rich­mond Rovers last Wed­nes­day evening.

The Fin­lay Park side are now five points clear of near­est ri­vals New­town United.
