League of Ireland Round Up

On the penultimate weekend of the Airtricity Premier League, there were wins for Bray, Dundalk, Sligo and Shamrock Rovers.

Bray won away to Bohs thanks to a Kieran Waters goal in the 76’ minute. The win was long overdue for the Wicklow men but still might not save them from the drop.

Dundalk coasted to a 4-0 victory over Cork at Oriel Park.  ‘The Town’ opened the scoring through Player of the year Richie Towell in the 33’ Minute.  Patrick Hoban doubled the advantage on 45’ minutes with a contender for goal of the season.

A John Kavanagh own goal just after the break confirmed Cork’s misery before John Dillion sealed a fantastic season for the Lilywhites.

League Champions St.Pats stumbled to a draw at home to Derry.  The Candy-stripes fell behind to a Mc Namee goal in the 34’ minute but Anto Flood rescued a point with his 81st minute equailiser.

UCD suffered heavily to Rovers at home, the Tallaght men opened the scoring through Robinson in the eight minute before Gary Mc Cabe converted a penalty in the 11th minute.

Robbie Benson pulled one back for the students in the 64th minute before Mc Cabe and Stewart put the result beyond doubt.

On Saturday Sligo beat Drogheda 3-1.  Anthony Elding celebrated two fine strikes in the 38th and 66th minute, the latter being a spot kick.

Evan Mc Millan made it 3-0 in the 73rd minute before Gavin Brennan pulled one back for the cup finalists albeit from a penalty.

This weekend sees the final round of games in what has been an excellent season for Irish domestic football.
