Moyne slip in title bid

MOYNE RANGERS are no longer the makers of their own destiny in Noel Kehoe Pitch Development Division 1.

Their failure to pick up maximum points from their two outings last week has seen them leave the door ajar for New Ross Town.

Rangers took on Kilmore United on Wednesday evening last and were held to a 3-3 draw. Paul Murphy struck a brace for United, with Dave Millar also registering an effort to edge his side closer to safety.

Daithí O'mahoney, Brian Newe and Mark Kirwan scored for Rangers.

That draw piled the pressure on the Enniscorthy side for their visit to the River Field on Sunday.

Home side Curracloe still had an outside chance of title glory with promotion also on their radar, but Rangers had an actionpacked 4-3 win. Mark Kirwan, Ricky Dwyer, Alan Tobin and James Peare did the damage for Rangers.

St. Leonards also faced a busy schedule. Wednesday evening saw them outdone by Bridge Rovers, who emerged 3-0 winners.

But they recovered on Sunday as they picked up a 1-0 triumph over Gorey Celtic thanks to Seán Ryan's strike.
