Sham­rock Celtic con­tinue their win­ning run with im­pres­sive vic­tory over Carnew

Bray People - - SPORT -

SHAM­ROCK CELTIC still lead by a nose in the Di­vi­sion 3 ti­tle race. The no­madic Celtic Park side car­ried on their im­pres­sive form seen in the lat­ter stages of 2012 on Sun­day as they recorded a facile 0-3 win over Carnew Celtic. Sean Knowd, Stephen McGuin­ness and Robert Gille­spie were all on tar­get for Dwaine Cooper's side as they moved four points clear of Ark­low United B.

United is no longer the sec­ond placed side though.

That hon­our now be­longs to Fair­wood Celtic, who took their un­beaten record into the New Year courtesy of a pre­cious 1-0 vic­tory over Avon­more FC.

It was a tale of two penal­ties at Coolboy Sports Field; Alan Nolan con­verted a first half one for the hosts and home goal­keeper Gerry Raw­son se­cured max­i­mum points for his side when he kept out an Avon­more spot kick in the sec­ond pe­riod.

If Avon­more feel ag­grieved by that re­sult they won't have to wait very long to seek re­venge as this Sun­day they wel­come Raw­son and co. to Rath­drum.

There was more than just points at stake at the Fas­saroe Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Sun­day when lo­cal ri­vals Fas­saroe YC and Bal­ly­waltrim FC went to war,

But nei­ther side can claim brag­ging rights af­ter a tame 1-1 draw. John Graney net­ted for the hosts, with Tom Cowan notch­ing for the away side.
