Carew Park moved into top spot in the Premier League with a hard earned 3-1 win over relegation threatened Aisling Annacotty. The visitors were on top in the first half and carried a deserved lead courtesy of Evan O’Connor in at the break.

Carew improved after the restart and were back on terms within minutes from a John Connery goal. Paul Quinn put Carew in front from a penalty kick while Alex Assouiss made sure of the points late on.

Two penalties from Shane Clarke, two beauties from Wayne O’Donovan and a fifth from Mike Hogan was enough to keep Boro’s charge for the title on course.
