Enniskerry slam eight past Arklow
ENNISKERRY YC A helped themselves to eight goals as they ran riot against Arklow Celtic B on Sunday.
Ian Morris and Gavin Barton accounted for half as those strikes as the young duo landed a brace apiece. Stephen King, Justin Melia, Julian Dolan and Ger Harvey all weighed in with singles for the Berryfield Lane club who are very much in contention for a Charlie Bishop Cup berth next season.
Arklow Celtic's future isn't so bright however as Sunday's demolishing was their 12th loss from 12 outings.
Mark Doyle netted for Celtic on Sunday to leave a final scoreline of 8-1.
A resurgent Rathnew side were also cruising to victory on Sunday. Brittas Park was the scene of their 15 victory over BBK United.
Steven Olohan gave his side the lead after just two minutes and the Villagers held that lead until the break.
Anthony Doyle's first effort of the season doubled Rathnew's lead before Andrew O'reilly pulled one back for United.
But Doyle added two more goals to complete a hattrick and was also joined on the scoresheet by Paul Merrigan to secure a facile four goal victory.
Despite the top two not being in league action this weekend the title race did heat up somewhat with Arklow Town landing a 3-1 triumph over Glenview FC at the Bridgewater Centre Park.
They now trail table-toppers Newtown United by eight points but they hold the ace in the pack due to having played four games less than the Magpies.
There is only one side with less fixtures completed than Town and that honour belongs to Richmond Rovers. But they did play this week and thanks to Darren Lyons they managed to pick up three points.
The striker produced the only goal of the game as Rovers enjoyed a 0-1 win over Shillelagh United.
