Wick­low Cup first round

Andy McEvoy Premier Divi­sion high-fly­ers St Peter’s showed no mercy to Cool­boy Rangers as they hit them for 12 goals with­out re­ply in their Wick­low Cup first round clash on Sun­day.

Kil­lian O’Car­roll, Niall Vaughan, Jake Kane and Chad Ryan all helped them­selves to dou­bles for the Bray out­fit, with Rian Greene, Jamie Kelly and Tony Har­ris also get­ting in on the act and an own goal adding to their hand­some tally.

Avon­more FC’s first team were un­der­stand­ably too strong for their se­cond string, run­ning out com­pre­hen­sive 9-0 win­ners with dou­bles from Cal­lum Pursey, Cian O hAn­nain and Mark Mi­ley and a goal apiece from Paul Gahan, Ryan Cahill and Adam Tuke.

Dar­gle Rovers booked their place in the se­cond round with a 2-1 home win against pre­vi­ously un­beaten Dearg Celtic.

Two goals in the se­cond-half from Allen Har­ris earned the vic­tory for Rovers, while Michael Mur­phy hit the back of the net for the Red­cross men.

Wick­low Rovers edged past Aughrim Rangers 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out af­ter a 1-1 draw.

Stu­art Cox gave Rovers a 1-0 half-time lead from the penalty spot.

The home side lev­elled, with Stephen Doyle also scor­ing from the spot to send the game to ex­tra-time.

The ad­di­tional pe­ri­ods failed to pro­duce a win­ner so it was on to the dreaded penalty shoot-out. Stu­art Cox, Robert Talaga, Hugh Humby and Adam Cud­dihy were all suc­cess­ful with their spot-kicks with Colin Smullen pro­duc­ing a vi­tal penalty save to see Rovers progress to the next round.

Ark­low United ‘B’ are also safely through to round two af­ter a 3-2 vic­tory away to New­town United ‘B’.

Gra­ham Heaney, Luke Walker and Paul Nolan got the goals for the win­ners.

Johnny Car­ton and Christy Moore­house (two) got the goals for Wick­low Town AFC in their 3-1 win over Carnew AFC ‘B’, with Dar­ren Jor­dan re­ply­ing.

St An­thony’s marched on cour­tesy of a 3-0 tri­umph over Round­wood AFC (see fo­cus match).

Mean­while, Carnew AFC’s first team pro­gressed with­out hav­ing to kick a ball as they were handed a walkover from Ark­low United ‘C’.
