GREYSTONES UNITED B 2

St ANTHONY'S 1

Having beaten their Kilcoole opponents 4-1 in the Shield decider, United added the Cup to their haul on Saturday May 25 at Whitegates in Wicklow town.

'Stones took a sixth-minute lead when Neil McNally was released on the left flank and hooked a lifted finish from 16-yards up and over Evan Vines.

But the Saints equalised in the 20th minute. Mikel Counihan's corner led to a handball in the box. Tom Fitzgerald scored the penalty.

Against the run of play, United snatched a 48th-minute winner.

Fed by McNally, Charlie Delaney hit a wonderful 25-yard shot that dipped just under the cross-bar.

ARKLOW TOWN A 1

ROUNDWOOD AFC 1

(AET (ROUNDWOOD 5-4 ON PENS))

Goalkeeper Sean Leacy saved the second sudden death penalty as Roundwood did a WDSL U11 Premier Division double.

In a tie that pitted the League champions against the Cup winners, the fifth meeting between the teams this season went the way of the Vartry side at Shamrock Park in Rathnew on Tuesday May 28.

Kyle Graham, Jordan Brady, Darragh Fee and Reece Scott all scored their spot-kicks for Roundwood before Leacy saved Arklow's fifth attempt.

Jordan Viera, Ryan Whelan, Jack Kavanagh and Diarmuid McDonald all converted for the 'Town.

Roundwood took a 15th-minute lead when Dylan Cummins' pass saw Fee turn well and score from eight yards.

But Arklow equalised in the 23rd minute when Brandon Donnelly headed in Kavanagh's cross.

Roundwood missed the chance to win the game six minutes from the end of normal time. But after being fouled, Fee fired his penalty over the bar.

WICKLOW ROVERS A 3

ASHFORD ROVERS 2

Wicklow claimed their second WDSL 10 Division 1 trophy of the campaign as they defeated Ashford in the Shield final.

In a repeat of the Cup decider, the Green and Whites emerged victorious from the odd goal in five on Tuesday May 28 at Shamrock Park in Rathnew.

Amazingly, it was their sixth triumph over the same opposition in all competitions this season.

Max Kearney gave Wicklow a secondminute lead which was doubled by Fionn Luddy.

But Stephen Kearns pulled one back for Ashford. And with 12 minutes remaining, Sam Bishop's long range effort squared the match.

With just six minutes left on the clock, Luddy set up Conor Lewins to snatch the win.
