Carew happy to share spoils with Rovers

IT'S as IF you were at the summit of Limerick's Premier Division after leaders Carew Park and second-placed Pike Rovers played out a 1-1 draw on Sunday afternoon.

Park went into the game one point clear of Pike, the defending champions, and will probably be happier with a share of the spoils with just three games remaining.

Both goals came in the first half. Jonathan Grant opened the scoring for the hosts and John Tierney restored parity for Pike with a well-taken penalty.

Both sides have three games left and will be out again on Thursday, with Pike slated to meet Wembley Rovers and Park to face Corbally United.

However, the bottom line in the race for the title is that if Park, who have only lost once in the league all season, win their three remaining games they will be crowned champions.

Premier League Janesboro saw off the challenge of Division 1A Moyross in the Lawson Cup semi-final on Sunday morning.

Conor Lynch got among the scorers in a 2-1 victory to set up next Sunday's final with Carew Park at Jackman Park.

Elsewhere in Limerick over the weekend, Division 1B champions Hospital were denied a league and cup double following their extra-time defeat to Charleville in the Calvert Cup final on Saturday. Barry Ryan opened the scoring for Hospital, but replies from Shane Corkery, John O'Driscoll and Shane Dillon secured the cup for Charleville.
