Pat O’Toole Di­vi­sion 1A

St. Peter’s suf­fered a de­feat on their re­turn to the Wick­low League af­ter seven years as they were edged out 3-2 by Park Ori­ent FC at the Lit­tle Bray Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

The sides were dead­locked at 1-1 at the break, with Jamie Kelly on tar­get for the hosts. Ori­ent took the lead early in the sec­ond-half but Chad Ryan net­ted the lev­eller.

How­ever, it wasn’t to be their day with Park Ori­ent grab­bing the win­ner to make it two wins out of two.

Di­vi­sion 1B

St. Pa­trick’s AFC got their Di­vi­sion 1B cam­paign up and run­ning by net­ting the per­fect ten in the Phoenix Park.

The Avoca side over­whelmed Old Court Celtic 10-2, with Adam Browne scor­ing a hat­trick, Paddy Kennedy net­ting a dou­ble and Aaron Tuke, An­dew Doyle, Paul McGann, Bradley Moran and Ryan Werder adding a goal apiece.

In the other game in the di­vi­sion Glen­cor­mac United and Grey­stones United AFC shared the spoils af­ter a 2-2 draw (see fo­cus match).

Di­vi­sion 3

Bal­ly­waltrim picked up three points from their open­ing Di­vi­sion 3 out­ing, with a sin­gle goal enough to see off Ark­low Celtic at Bal­ly­waltrim Recre­ational Park on Sun­day.

The all-im­por­tant goal came inside the open­ing 20 min­utes when Cameron Grif­fin’s shot was de­flected into his own net by an Ark­low de­fender.

Else­where Sham­rock Celtic proved too good for Ark­low United, run­ning out im­pres­sive 4-0 win­ners (see fo­cus match).

U-20 De­vel­op­ment League

Wick­low Town opened their Un­der-20 De­vel­op­ment cam­paign on Sun­day but lost out 3-2 away to Knock­mit­ten United.

Adrian Du­rak fired Town into the lead, but the hosts then took con­trol and built up a 3-1 ad­van­tage.

To their credit, the visi­tors kept plug­ging away and J.J. Power re­duced the deficit late on, but they couldn’t force the equaliser.
