Kilmore take over at top of the table

DOROTHY FAMOUSLY said there was no place like home. Well, she should try telling that to the teams in Division 1. Four of the five fixtures in Wexford's second tier produced victories for the away side on Sunday last, with the other match ending in a draw.

That stalemate occurred in Clone as Ferns United and St. Leonards cancelled each other out, a result that sees the saints kiss goodbye to top spot. Ken Cahill and Adrian Flynn both netted for the visitors but it wasn't enough to land three points for St. Leonards. That 2-2 draw means United still have the best record thus far this season.

Kilmore United is the side who took up the reins at the head of the table in St. Leonards' absence. Relegation candidates Bridge Rovers were hoping to topple the title challengers at The Bogside but the hosts put through their own net on their way to a 3-0 loss. Shane Cassidy bagged the other two efforts for the new league leaders.

Third place still belongs to Shamrock Rovers B, but the Fr. Murphy Park men now share second place with St. Leonards. Rosslare Rangers were their port of call last weekend and the visitors reeled in a 3-0 success. Podge Dwyer, Seán Wildes and Willie Dobbs all shared goalscoring duties amongst themselves for Rovers.

Unfortunately for Enniscorthy United, it doesn't seem to matter where they play at the minute. They slumped to their seventh defeat in eleven outings last weekend as Curracloe United got the better of them. Liam Donnelly and Craig McCabe were on the scoresheet for United as they picked up a 3-1 win.

Wexford Celtic have a two-point breathing space on Enniscorthy but they too had a fruitless weekend. Adamstown proved to be United's downfall, edging past them by two goals to one on Sunday. Mark Dunphy and Ian White were on target for the victors.
