Shil­le­lagh rally stuns Conary

Bray People - - SPORT -

ASH­FORD Rovers B and Conary United will be shar­ing the top of the charts at Christ­mas. United had the chance to claim it out­right but their plans un­rav­elled against a resur­gent, never-say-die Shil­le­lagh United.

Stephen McCauley, Eoin Murtagh, Pas­cal O’Reilly and Andy Doyle had prob­a­bly thought they’d done enough as their goals had the Rooster’s Park men lead­ing 2-4 with only 10 min­utes re­main­ing. But they hadn’t ex­pected the Bal­lard men to pull another goal back and then steal a point thanks to Mark Collins’ lev­eller right at the death.

PJ O’Keefe (2) and Jimmy Be­han (penalty) were the home side’s other scor­ers. That point only lifts Conary level on points with Ash­ford Rovers B, who have a su­pe­rior goal dif­fer­ence. Form side Shil­le­lagh will spend the fes­tive pe­riod in fourth place.

There were no other matches in Di­vi­sion 2B. Rath­new AFC B showed up at the Vartry Grounds to take on Round­wood but after com­plet­ing their warm-up, they were in­formed the hosts only had eight men so they re­turned home with three points in the bag.
