There were wins for Janesboro, Pike, Geraldines, Carew Park, Fairview and Regional in yesterday’s LDL Premier League. Here is a roundup of all the action.
Pike Rovers made it three wins from three games with a 3-1 win at Ballynanty Rovers. First half goals from Colin Daly, Paddy O’Malley and Wayne Colbert sealed the game for Pike. Balla had levelled from Alex Purcell but Rovers came away with all three points from Shelbourne Park.
Janesboro also kept up their 100% record after hammering Mungret Regional 6-0. John Tierney, Shane Waters and Shane Clarke put them three goals to the good early on before Aaron Nunan (2) and Aidan Hurley completed the scoring for last season’s champions who had Clarke sent off before half time.
Joint leaders Geraldines kept up their excellent early season form by beating an under strength Wembley Rovers 7-0. Two penalties from Danny O’Neill and goals from James Cleary and Darren O’Sullivan had the Dines four up at half time. Keith Harnett and two strikes by Ian O’Donoghue saw Geraldines complete the rout.
A nine goal thriller in Moyross saw Carew Park get their second win of the season. Carew beat their hosts 6-3 thanks to goals from Kieran Hanlon (2), Mark McGrath (2), John Connery and a Gary Griffin penalty. Adrian Power, Eddie O’Neill and Kevin O’Mahoney bagged Moyross’ goals.
Fairview Rangers continued their impressive start to the season with a 4-1 win over Aisling Annacotty. James Cussen, Dean McNamara, Paudie Quinn and sub Eddie Byrnes got the View’s goals with Keith Mawdsley replying for Aisling.
Regional got their midweek defeat out of their system with an away win against Summerville Rovers. Ken Nealon put Regional in front before a stunning strike from Kuba Domanski levelled matters at Portland Park at half time. Regional, however, were not to be denied and Garbhan Coughlan latched on to Pat Deegan’s throw to finish past Alan Aherne and give Regional the win.
