Curracloe overcome title rivals to go clear


Curracloe moved clear at the top of the Under-10 Premier Division when proving too good for fellow title challengers Ballindaggin in a windy Curracloe on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Sarah Harding-Kenny, Sarah Shiggins and Cara Lacey gave the home side a 3-0 win.

Fastnet Rovers kept in touch with a 4-2 win over Campile and moved into second place.

Michelle Kinsella and Cassie Healy-Baker scored for Campile, but two goals from Anne Marie Bennett and one each from Claire McGee and Rachel Bennett gave Rovers the three points. U-10 DIVISION 1

Kilmore and Shelburne are locked together at the top of Division 1 after they both picked up wins on Saturday morning against Forth Celtic and Seaview United respectively.

Kilmore won 9-0 thanks to two goals each from Niamh Cassidy, Emily Bates and Sophie Boxwell plus one each from Kira Bates-Crosbie, Abby Troy and Amy cousins which gave them a comfortable win.

Shelbourne won 6-1 in Seaview with Hannah Keating scoring an incredible five while Niamh Kehoe also found the net. U-10 DIVISION 2A/2B/3

Only one game survived in each of the lower three divisions, with the best game being Corach Ramblers beating Moyne Rangers 3-2 in 2A.

Two goals from Jane Rossiter and one from Aimee Fleming had Ramblers 3-0 ahead before Moyne found their scoring boots and pulled two back through Sinéad Morrissey and Eimear Byrne, but Ramblers held on for a 3-2 win.

Gorey Celtic made it five wins from five games when travelling to All Blacks and winning 10-1, with Amy Wilson scoring six while Caragh Clarke, Paige Tanner, Eabha Cahill and Amber Donoghue added one each. Emily Coakley scored a consolation goal for the home side.

In Division 3, Taghmon United travelled to a very young Campile United second team and won 6-0 to go joint top of the division. Great credit must go to the Campile side who comprise mainly seven-and eightyear-olds but are enjoying their first season in schoolgirls' soccer.
