Leaders have to settle for share of spoils

LEADERS CAMPILE United had to settle for a share of the spoils at the weekend when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Wexford Celtic, with Donal O'Connor getting the goal for the Wexford town side.

However, Enniscorthy United failed to take advantage, letting a 3-0 half-time lead slip as St. Cormac's staged a rousing finish to earn a 3-3 draw.

United looked to be in cruise control at the interval, with goals from Darren Walsh (two) and Mick Rigley giving them a seemingly unassailable lead.

When Brendan Burke pulled a goal back in the 77th minute it looked to be mere consolation, but St. Cormac's had other ideas and Mick Ivory headed home a corner with six minutes remaining to set up a grandstand finish.

And there was one final twist in the tale, with former Wexford Youths player Marty Kelly slotting home a penalty in the 89th minute to earn his side what looked an unlikely point just 13 minutes earlier.

Moyne Rangers were much too strong for Anchor United, winning 6-0 with goals from Tomás Whelan (two), Joe Newe, Pa O'Rourke, Seán Miller and Dylan Redmond, while Gorey Rangers also recorded a handsome win, beating struggling Rosslare Strand 8-3.

Gorey Celtic earned a 2-1 win away to Shelburne with goals from William Kehoe and Dave Melia, while Frank Kennedy netted a hat-trick for Gorey Rangers as they beat Corach Ramblers 3-2.
