WEEK FOUR of the Over-35 soccer league saw some top-quality games again as teams went in search of points to try to make the top four of each group and gain a place in the quarter-finals.
The bottom three teams in each group after the final round of games will then go into the league trophy. With no games next weekend due to the bank holiday, it will be cup action when the competition resumes on June 10.
Last Friday night in Group A saw Alan Diskin making his first appearance of the season to inspire Corach to their first win with a screamer of a goal to open the scoring.
He then set up John Staples for two as the the home side ran out 3-0 winners over Cushinstown.
Campile entertained Fastnet and with Johnny Keating netting two, and Kenny Cahill, Shane Whelan and Alan Myler also on the scoresheet, they had a comfortable 5-0 win over their visitors.
The big game in this group saw table-toppers Rosslare travelling to second-placed Kilmore and, after a hard-fought game, the home side emerged victorious with a hard-earned 3-2 win.
As a result, they moved to the top of the table on goal difference, with a game in hand. Adam Lawlor, Danny O’Reilly and Robbie Mullins were on target for the winners, with Ian O’Leary and Oscar Pitt replying for Rangers.
In Group B, Arklow continued their impressive start with a third straight win and their third clean sheet in the process, with a Gerry Geraghty goal enough to claim all three points away to Courtown.
After a titanic struggle in Murrintown, home side Forth Celtic saw off Taghmon 3-2, with the latter without a win so far.
Kevin Price, Tom Elmes and Paul Malone were on target, while Gary O’Brien and Kevin Carmody replied for the hard-trying Taghmon crew.
In the group’s last game, a depleted Adamstown travelled to Enniscorthy and were put to the sword by the home side who ran out convincing 10-2 winners in a handy victory.
Braces from John and Willie Hudson, Seán Farnan and Colin Sheehan were topped with a goal each for Murt McKeown and Tomás ‘Ducker’ Hawkins. David Cadogan and Brian Aylward replied for Adamstown.
