Aisling Annacotty share top spot after latest win

Aisling Annacotty are the surprise joint leaders of the Premier League following a 2-1 win over Ballynanty Rovers this Thursday evening.

Goals from Keith Mawdsley and Gustavo Santos had Mike McCarthy's side in front and while Des Fitzgerald pulled one back for the visitors it proved but a consolation.

Janesboro bounced back well from last weekend's defeat to Carew Park by hitting Geraldines for five in Pearse Stadium.

Under new management under the guise of Tommy Barrett, Geraldines but up a good effort with the game level at the break. John Tierney put Boro in front but an own goal levelled.

The home side raced away in the second half adding goals from Evan Lynch, Aidan Hurley and a brace from Shane Clarke. 

Fairview join Janesboro in third spot following a hard earned 3-2 win in Nenagh. The home side took the lead through Dan Butler but Paudie Quinn equalised before the break.

George Daffy put 'View in front after the restart but a Roy Creagh goal levelled the game again. With time running out Cian O'Donoghue struck the winner for Fairview.

Champions Carew Park chalked up their second clean sheet in five days and more importantly their third win of the season to move just in behind the top four with a 2-1 win away to Moyross. Stephen Hannon got a late reply for the home side.

Two well struck first half goals by Mark McGrath was enough to win the day but the visitors.

Following defeat in their first four games of the season, Kilmallock continue their remarkable recovery, recording third successive win in a 2-1 result against Regional in Kilmallock.

The visitors had the perfect start when Paudie Walsh fired them in front in the opening minutes but Tommy Heffernan levelled before the break. The same player hit the winner for Kilmallock midway through the second half.
