Coachford hit Castleview for six in Premier League romp
THIS Premier League win was as one-sided as the scoreline suggests and it keeps Coachford on top of the table with six wins from six starts. This was Coachford's second league win against Castleview and the earlier fixture was a 9-1 drubbing at home.
Patrick Finnegan opened the account with the visitors' first goal after twenty minutes. Alan Jeffers doubled the lead from the penalty spot and Coachford took the two-nil lead to half-time. The game was effectively over by the 70th minute as Patrick Finnegan scored his second and Ivan Skillington made it four-nil. Second half substitutes Kenneth Hogan and Ruan Linehan made impressive contributions with a goal each. Both scored with well-hit volleys.
Coachford will hope to carry their scoring form into their Munster Junior Cup Fifth Round clash at home to Pike Rovers on Saturday. A win will put Coachford into the quarter-finals of the prestigious competition. They lost at this point last season to Tramore Atheltic. Pike Rovers are a Limerick side and are one of the favourites to take the title. However, Coachford have been scoring freely and defending very well this season so the game should be one to savour for the home crowd.
