Divi­sion 3

Ark­low Town fought back from 3-1 down at the break to earn a share of the spoils in an ex­cit­ing Divi­sion 3 clash against Conary United on Sun­day.

Conary be­gan the game with a bang and were 2-0 up af­ter 20 min­utes through Andy Doyle and Pas­cal O’Reilly.

Cian Bol­ger ham­mered a sweet vol­ley into the bot­tom cor­ner from an Ed­ward Dunne cor­ner on the half hour to get the Ark­low back into the game but O’Reilly’s se­cond gave Conary a 3-1 ad­van­tage at the in­ter­val.

Ark­low pushed for­ward to try to get them­selves back into the game and got their re­ward when Peter Walker found the head of cen­tre back Donal O’Keefe to make it 3-2.

Town left it late to res­cue a point, grab­bing the equaliser with 93 min­utes on the clock. A well-taken free-kick from Peter Walker re­sulted in a scram­ble in the box, and although the goal­keeper made a great save from Dean Doyle, Ge­orge Byrne was there to put it away with the last kick of the game.
