Double hat-trick for Curracloe

CURRACLOE UNITED team-mates Eoin Parker and Liam Donnelly were left fighting for the limelight and the matchday ball on Sunday after they both struck hat-tricks in their side's 6-3 triumph over the All Blacks at the River Field.

The attackers were in top form as they fired their side up to second in the table.

The All Blacks, who currently occupy bottom spot, did at least manage a few goals and those efforts came courtesy of John Codd, Robert Dempsey and Kevin Keating.

Table-toppers Kilmore United saw their 100% start to the season ended at Ballyeskin. They found their perfect record foiled by Bridge Rovers on Sunday. Mark Doyle netted from the spot for Rovers but Bill Goucher's strike for Rovers denied United their third win on the spin.

Moyne Rangers took full advantage as they destroyed Rosslare Rangers by 4-1. Gorey Celtic also enjoyed a handsome win this weekend. St. Leonard's visited Celtic at Mullaunfin but returned home penniless after slipping to a 3-1 defeat.

James Graham, Dave Gahan and David O'Brien all weighed in with singles for Celtic who was experiencing their first victory of the campaign.

Park Hotspur were forced to settle for a point from their clash with New Ross Town. Efforts from Martin Kinsella and Sean Pakin cancelled each other out.
