Mag­pies keep ti­tle hopes alive

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT -

NEW­TOWN United reignited their Andy McEvoy Premier Divi­sion ti­tle hopes with a 3-1 win over ri­vals St Peter’s on Sun­day.

Aaron Byrne gave the Mag­pies a first-half lead but Niall Vaughan drew St Peter’s level on the hour mark and they looked liked get­ting the point they needed for the ti­tle.

How­ever, New­town had other ideas and Sean Hef­fer­nan fired them in front with 90 min­utes on the clock.

They sealed the deal in in­jury time when Dil­lon Carthy won a penalty and tucked it away him­self to keep the dream very much alive.

They now need to win their re­main­ing three games to pip the saints by a point.
