Ramblers within touching distance of top flight

Division 1

Corach Ramblers are within touching distance of the top flight after a midweek 2-1 win over Forth Celtic.

Niall Harney and Gareth McCurtin got the goals for the table-toppers as they added another three points to their tally.

Their title-rivals Bridge Rovers are still hot on their heels after a 2-1 win in Taghmon thanks to goals from Oisín Firman and Kevin Murphy.

Wexford Bohs beat Ferns 3-2 on Sunday with goals from Aaron Lambert (two) and Seán Pailing (penalty).

Bohs had travelled to play Taghmon United in midweek and came away with a 2-0 win, courtesy of goals from Aaron Lambert and Derek Bergin.

St. Cormac's picked up an important victory in their efforts to stave off the threat of relegation by overcoming Tombrack 2-1 on Tuesday of last week.

Paul 'Roddy' Doyle gave the saints the lead from the penalty spot but Eoin Carton levelled matters before the break.

However, the prolific Doyle had the last say, hitting the back of the net from 25 yards to win it for Cormac's.

Tombrack got back to winning ways two days later, however, as they beat bottom side Taghmon United 3-1 with goals from Eoin Carton, James Coleman and Darragh Hendrick.

Tombrack were back in action on Sunday and they won 3-2 away to St. Leonards.

Eoin Carton helped himself to a double for Tombrack, with Bob Newe getting their other goal and Páuric Conway and Seán Ryan scoring for the saints.
