Marah pounces for a late win­ner for Rovers

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - Andy McEvoy Pre­mier

Ash­ford Rovers got their first league win on the board when they trav­elled to the Back Al­ley to face Carnew AFC and came away with a 2-1 vic­tory in their Andy McEvoy Pre­mier Divi­sion game on Sun­day.

The vis­i­tors took an early lead when Andy Earls closed down the Carnew goal­keeper, whose at­tempted clear­ance ric­o­cheted off the striker and into the net.

Carnew got back on level terms ten min­utes be­fore the break, when John Ka­vanagh got on the end of a free-kick and fin­ished from close range.

It looked like the points would be shared but Kian Marah grabbed the win­ning goal deep into sec­ond-half in­jury time, when he was quick­est to re­act af­ter Rob­bie Eyre’s pow­er­ful free-kick had been saved.

Lead­ers St Peter’s are now four points clear at the top of the divi­sion af­ter edg­ing out Glen­cor­mac 3-2 at Lit­tle Bray Com­mu­nity Cen­tre thanks to goals from Noely Stephens, Niall Vaughan and Rian Greene.

The saints were 2-1 ahead at the break, with Josh O’Cal­laghan hit­ting the back of the net for Glen­cor­mac.

Peter’s ex­tended their ad­van­tage to 3-1 af­ter the in­ter­val and although O’Cal­laghan grabbed his sec­ond for the Glens they couldn’t force the equaliser.
