Dunne hat-trick helps Wick­low to first vic­tory


WICK­LOW Town A rock­eted out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone with their first win of the sea­son in the most em­phatic fash­ion.

Ark­low Celtic A was the un­for­tu­nate vic­tim at Fin­lay Park as they had eight goals smashed past them by a ram­pant Wick­low Town side.

Shane Dunne helped him­self to the match ball with a hat-trick, David ‘DOC’ O’Con­nor grabbed two beau­ties and Ed­die Kelly, John Con­nor and Bren­dan Cox all notched sin­gles as they shot up to fourth spot in a tem­pes­tu­ous match that saw four men sent off over the 90 min­utes.

Re­plac­ing Town in the bot­tom two is, bizarrely, reign­ing top flight cham­pi­ons New­town United A. Much of that is owed to the fact that they’ve only been able to ful­fil two matches all sea­son.

Be­low them is St. Fer­gal’s AFC, who nar­rowly avoided de­feat on Fri­day evening in a Bat­tle of the Saints.

They wel­comed St. Pa­trick’s to Bal­ly­waltrim Recre­ational Park and snatched a last-gasp equaliser to earn their third point of the sea­son.

Pa­trick Kennedy and Os­car Traynor man Ryan Cahill were on tar­get for Pat’s, with Gary Kearns and Lee Hem­pen­stall notch­ing the goals that earned their side a third draw from five out­ings.
