CastleCourt Hotel Premier Division
Crossmolina joined Conn Rangers in winning promotion to the Super League with a 3-0 win over Westport United B on Saturday evening in United Park. It’s the second successive promotion for Michael Canavan’s side that will have the chance to wrap up another league and cup double if they earn at least a point against Killala next weekend. Crossmolina dominated the game but had to wait until six minutes before the break to take the lead when Diarmuid Coggins won the ball from Brandon Scahill thirty yards from goal and he found his brother Niall who laid the ball off to Micheal Gill and the winger found the back of the net with a low shot past Micheal Gibbons. Niall Coggins made it two early in the second half when his low effort from just inside the area found the bottom right hand corner of the net. It seemed only a matter of time before the away side would add a third goal and it was one well worth waiting for when Vlad Gordetskyy fierce drive from forty yards flew past everyone and into the back of the net to seal the win for his side inside the final ten minutes.
At the other end of the table Killala fate was sealed as they were relegated to League One after a 3-1 defeat to Kiltimagh/Knock United B. Goals from Shane Byrne, Liam McCormack and David Smith ensured John Tarpey’s side would be playing Premier Division football again next season.
Swinford got second win in four games as they had a 1-0 win over Ballyglass in Michael Keaveney Park. The only goal of the game came in the first half when young striker Conor Devaney hit the winner for Chris McHale-Roe’s side.
Fahy Rovers and Moy Villa played out a thrilling 5-5 draw as both sides went for it in a game that meant very little for both sides. Moy Villa let 3-0 at one stage but needed a last gasp equaliser to earn a point in Fahy. Simon Duffy hit a hat-trick for John Creaby’s side with Gary and Kevin Concannon getting the other two goals while Tony Loftus (2), Stephen Moyles, Ciaran Gaughan and Luke Ruane got the goals for the away side.
McDonnell Construction League Two
Partry Athletic’s title and promotion hopes were dealt a huge blow on Saturday evening when Claremorris B picked up all three points to remain on top of League Two with a 1-0 win in Partry. The only goal of the game came just before half time when Paul Burke’s cross found Davy Hennessey at the back post who had the simplest of tasks as he tapped the ball into an empty net. Following that win the title race will go right down to the final day with Castlebar Celtic B their most likely challengers as they lie a point behind with a game in hand.
Castlebar Celtic B title hopes remain in their own destiny after a resounding win over Ballyvary Blue Bombers in Keelogues. They continued their fine form infront of goal as Conor Joyce brought his tally to fifteen league goals as he hit four, Nicky Canning struck a hat-trick and the other two goals came courtesy of Jack Mahon and Ethan Minogue.
Conn Rangers C picked up their first win of the season with a 5-3 win over Fahy Rovers B in Mount Falcon. B team manager Patrick Armstrong hit a brace with the other goals coming from Jim Kelly, Shane O’Malley and Shane Faughnan
