BOYLE CELTIC hold on to the leadership of the Best Western Sligo Southern Hotel Super League by a slender two points after their victory over neighbours Aughanagh Celtic, thanks to a double strike from Lee Mc Killen and a third from leading hit man Michael Corrigan. Aughanagh replied once through the ever alert Paul Mc Tiernan and Aughanagh despite losing this local derby can still pick up vital points with their two remaining games. Boyle play their last league fixture on Sunday, April 29th, away to contenders Carbury who can still claim second spot and on the day can put a massive dent in the title challenge of Boyle Celtic.
The biggest threat to all title pretenders are City United, they hit Ballymote Celtic for six at Brother Walfrid Park ,Christopher Kelly netting a hat trick namesake Gareth adding the fourth with Clive Sommers and captaingary Rooney rounding off the business for a rampant City. Ballymote replied once through Conor Meehan. City play away to Cliffoney Celtic on Sunday and should both they and Boyle win then its a two point difference with Carbury, with a game in hand and yes that's against Carbury on the May 6th.
However, on the relegation and play off areas danger lurks for the bottom four. Manor Rangers recorded a blistering win over Coolera Rovers with a five goal roasting without reply, Alan Hickey and Killian Kerrigan each netting twice and Anthony Mc Donald adding the fifth in a one sided encounter but these three points may well afford Manor a play-off position at least this will again depend on how Cliffoney and Strand Celtic perform in their remaining games so at top and bottom its proving to be one of the most exciting Super League for some years.
League leaders Calry Bohs travelled to Tubbercurry in the Andrew Mullen's Sligo Pallets Premier League in the knowledge that a win would push them nearer the Premier title, anything less and it opened the door a little bit more for a serious challenge from both Real Tubber and Cartron United.
The game was played at a high tempo throughout with few chances in front of goal but on sixty five minutes Calry got the rub of the green when a Paddy Wolfe shot came back of the post and hit Real Tubber Keeper Ross Mc Carrick to go in of him for the only goal of the game. It was tough on Real Tubber who were excellent but Calry Bohs have also shown class and determination in a most exciting clash.
Cartron United thanks to a Kieran Coyle super strike on fifty five minutes gave them all three points against a very good Coolaney United side this win gives continues the superb drive of Cartron for major honours but it now looks a two horse race for silverware in the Premier unless form goes out the window while at the bottom Merville are already relegated as to who will join them is a lottery and perhaps who will meet Strand Celtic reserves in the play off for Premier League status is an even bigger question so it's all to play with fortune favouring the Brave.
Glenview Stars shared the spoils with Aclare Celtic in Cleary Landscapes and Pitch Maintenance Division One while St John's claimed the three points against Leitrim Villa.
