ACTION RESUMED in the Sligo Rovers 11-A-side Astro Turf League with the top two both in action in Division One. Fiddler's Creek continue to lead the way as they recorded a hard fought 2-0 win against Abbott Ireland. Glen Shannon was the architect for both goals as first he played Mark Rooney and then he put in a free kick which was headed home by Gerry Mcgowan. For Abbott this was a much improved performance and indeed they had a couple of chances for their own with both Jason Mcloughlin and Conor Scanlon going close.
Riverstown looked to have rediscovered their form as they avenged their previous league defeat against the P.S.O. by beating them 6-2. Mark Burke was their main man on the night as he scored a hat-trick with Johnny Kenny, Colin Burke and Mark Tuohy all getting one each.
Stuart Farren and Gary Fallon got on the mark for the P.S.O. Despite being thin on numbers Sligo Plumbing & Heating showed that they are not thin on quality as they were 2-0 winners against the G.S.S. Michael Mcnamara and Philip Gallagher were their scorers.
With the leaders Killanaskully Wanderers not in action Hargadon's (Calry) had the chance to go joint top of the Mccullagh Carpentry Division Two providing they could win against Coolaney Celts who themselves are still well in the race for promotion. Gary Canny gave them lead midway through the first half when he scored with a perfectly weighted lob that gave Coolaney keeper Martin Callaghan no chance. Just before half-time and Canny was on the mark again. This time he got to the end of a cross from Mick Doherty. They ran out 2-0 winners and are now level on 39 points with Killanaskully. Lang's Bar continued with their recent good run as they saw off IT Sligo to win 2-0. Peter Mcgowan and Chris Pyton were their scorers.
