Pike Rovers have moved three points clear at the top of the LDMC Premier Division following their 2-0 win over Regional Utd at the weekend.

The bad weather conditions played havoc with the games on Sunday but second-half goals from Pat Moloney and John Tierney saw Pike pull through. They are now on 35 points, three ahead of Carew Park and six clear of Janesboro, who have two games in hand.

In the other Premier Division game played over the weekend, Carew Park were 5-2 winners over Fairview Rangers. Jonathan Grant and Alex Assouiss gave Carew the lead but Fairview were back level by the break thanks to goals from Eddie Byrnes and Brian Fitzgerald.

But Carew powerd on in the second half and further strikes from Assouiss, John Connery and Darren O’Sullivan earned them all three points.

It completed a good couple of days for Carew Park, as they also booked their Tuohy Cup final place thanks to a 4-2 win over Corbally Utd on Thursday night.

Corbally raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Ken Nealon and Cian Collins. Darren O’Sullivan and Jonathan Grant found the net to tie the game by the break and Grant and John Connery struck in the second half to set up a final date with Janesboro.

The Premier Division games between Geraldines and Janesboro, Summerville and Knockainey and Ballynanty and Corbally Utd were called off.
