Carew Park 2 - 1 Pike Rovers

Carew Park are sitting joint top of the Premier League after Sunday's series of results. After Pike Rvs midweek defeat to Janesboro, it was expected the Hoops would come out all guns blazing to get back on track. However Albert Slattery's men had other ideas and turned over their old rivals to make it three successive wins.

Carew went close inside the opening five minutes when Kieran Hanlon dispossessed his marker but faced one on one with Gary Neville, the goalkeeper came out tops.

Ten minutes later a clever back heel by Alex Purcell sent Keegan Park away and his delivery was met by O'Hanlon but Neville saved. However the rebound was finally touched home by Jamie O'Sullivan.

Both sides were creating chances but the 'Keepers were proving best.

Carew doubled their advantage when Hanlon's persistence saw a clearance rebound off him into the net.

Pike upped the tempo and had a couple of efforts from John Connery and Wayne Colbert but Jamie Stewart made excellent stops.

Pike did get a consolation in the final minute when Connery was upended in the area and the returning Steve McGann converted the spot kick to no avail as the home side held on for the points.
