Only one LDL Premier Division game went ahead over the weekend with Moyross heaping further relegation pressure on Aisling Annacotty following a 4-2 win.

Aisling’s all-weather pitch meant that that game survived the bad weather conditions but the home side couldn’t get the win they needed to move out of the relegation zone.

Stephen Goggin headed Aisling into a 1-0 lead after nine minutes but the sides were level on 20 minutes when Keith Colbert’s corner was deflected to the net by an Aisling defender.

Brian O’Donovan put Aisling back into the lead and it remained 2-1 at the break.

The second half was less free flowing but on the hour mark Barry Quinn took centre stage when he gathered the ball 25 yards out on the right and with little on tried his luck with an audacious left footed volley that sailed over the keeper and nestled in the net.

Barry Quinn popped up again to put Moyross in front picking up a clearance from a corner before unleashing a powerful shot giving Tommy Flynn no chance in the home goal.

Ger Cronin made sure of the points a couple of minutes later when he took advantage of a mix up between defender and goalkeeper to fire the ball in for 4-2.

In the only other games played over the weekend, Herbertstown were 4-1 winners over Kilnamanagh in the FAI U-17 Cup, Regional Utd were beaten 1-0 by Letterkenny in the FAI Youth Cup, Cappamore Celtic were 4-1 winners over Granville in the Division 1A O’Halloran Cup while Holycross were 4-0 winners over Aisling B in Division 1B of the league.

Two goals from Paudie Sheehy - one a penalty - and one each from Daniel Hurley and David Hannon accounted for the Herbertstown goals.
