Life at top of the Sligo Southern Hotel Super League is getting ever tighter. Carbury intensified the pressure on leaders Cartron United when they won well, away to Ballisodare United on Friday night hitting the home side for four without reply.

Ross Mc Loughlin just back from suspension netted after four minutes, Mark Mc Goldrick on thirty-three minutes and two minutes Jason Lyons made it three goals to nil. More misery for Ballisodare on forty-seven minutes when an own goal finished off the scoring and the game to leave Carbury top of the table for at least the next thirty-six hours.


League challenger’s Cartron United journeyed to Cliffoney Celtic in the knowledge that nothing less than a win would suffice to maintain their quest for honours. The league leaders did not disappoint Donal Gallagher on fire netting after ten minutes and again twenty minutes later leaving Cartron in total control at the break.

Five minutes into the second half and it was game set and match when Malachy Spratt fired home. Cliffoney Celtic hit a late goal courtesy of Kevin Gavigan but the day and most importantly the points belong to still, the League leaders Cartron United.

MCR welcomed Real Tubber to Sean Fallon Park Cranmore and what a game we had here. Real Tubber hitting the front with a cracker of a goal from Raff Cretaro in the first half and five minutes into the second half Ben Henry made it two nil to the visitors. On seventy minutes MCR hit a purple patch firstly Alieu Menah Sesay netted and no sooner was the ball back in play when Jordan Harte rifled home the equaliser.

The game was now level but MCR upped the tempo and ten minutes from time Jordan Harte was again on target scoring and securing all three points in a brilliant game of football.

Strand Celtic welcomed Merville United to Strandhill on Saturday night. Dylan Martin opened the scoring for Strand after ten minutes. Leo Doherty doubled the lead on twenty-five minutes with Barry O Mahony hitting goal number on thirty-five minutes while Dylan Martin nailed his second, and Strands fourth goal just minutes from half time.

Cormac Correia took a well-deserved goal eleven minutes into the second half Dylan Martin with his third and fourth goals on sixty and sixty-five minutes, Aaron O Boyle struck ten minutes from time and. Dylan Martin with his fifth goal at the end of a stunning performance that sees him hit the top of Ej’s Leading scorer board.

The league management committee on behalf of their clubs, affiliates and sponsors extend their sincere Condolences to club chairman Jorge Correia and senior player Cormac Correia on the passing of Joaquim Correia who passed away earlier this week.

Manor Rangers welcomed Riverstown Boys Arrow Harps to the Astro at Dromahair at the visitors hit Manor for six. Luke Flynn netting a superb hat trick, with a goal each from Andy Flynn, Patrick Kenny and David Barlow completing the scoring for an Arrow Harps side firing on all cylinders. Manor scored once a late goal courtesy of Anthony Mc Donald while Thomas Mc Donald again, receiving his marching orders for foul and abusive language to match official Owen Mc Loughlin

Ballymote Celtic were at home at Brother Walfrid Park to visitors Aughanagh Celtic in this nine-goal thriller with six of the goals netted by Aughanagh Celtic. Marcus Guckian and Seamus Hailstones both scoring two goals each with Niall Craig and Daniel Lyons completing the scoring for Aughanagh Celtic. Shane Hannon, Kenny Meehan and Michael Flannery were on target for Ballymote Celtic while Aughanagh Celtic had Shane Barry dismissed by referee Stephen Fallon for ungentlemanly behaviour.

League front runners in the Andrew Mullen Sligo Pallets Premier League Coolaney United travelled to the showgrounds in Carrick on Shannon for an afternoon kick off in the knowledge that a win would see them move even further away from the chasing pack as St Johns had drawn and Glenview Stars had lost so could they capitalise on their opponents’ misfortunes or would the Town throw a spanner in the works it was all to play for.

Coolaney United were a goal to the good at the break thanks to a Stephen Patton strike after ten minutes. The Town were back in fray on seventy-five minutes when Ray Mulvey struck gold and five minutes later shock and awe David Regan netted what would eventually prove to be the winning goal against the league leaders Coolaney United despite this loss can take it on the chin the league is still theirs to lose but they need to learn quickly to close the door. The Town had Ryan Higgins sent off ten minutes from time for a second yellow card and despite this held out for a stunning victory.

Saturday night saw St Johns take on Ballygawley at MacSharry Park in what was sure to be a tight encounter. Ballygawley clinched a late equaliser in their last encounter so St Johns would be looking to push on from this on their home ground.

However, it was Ballygawley who came quickly out of the blocks capitalising on some poor St Johns defending to score two early goals courtesy of James Mackey and a Conor Healy penalty. As the first half progressed St John’s started to get a foothold and two well worked goals from Conor Brennan and Donal Fidgeon saw the game level. Minutes before the break Ballygawley broke from a long ball and James Mackey scored a third with the last kick of the half.

It was Ballygawley who started the brighter in the second half and were rewarded for their hard work with a fourth goal with a clinical finish from Ryan Walsh. St Johns had a mountain to climb but kept the heads up and some tired Ballygawley legs allowed St Johns to take control.

Managing to get two goals back in quick succession when Donal Fidgeon scored on seventy and seventy-five minutes, the home side were now hungry for the winner and with fifth teen minutes to go attack after attack resulted in numerous attempts on the Ballygawley goal but their keeper pulled off some excellent saves and with some help from the upright, the game finished level.

This result puts a big dent in St Johns title aspirations but with plenty of games to play you couldn’t count them out yet.

Glenview Stars travelled to Enniscrone in the hunt for those precious three points that would see them maintain their drive for honours. Kilglass Enniscrone United fully aware that three points would bring them right back into striking distance of the chasing pack ensured that this was going to be a battle royal and so it proved to be.

Robert Jacob was the hero of the day for Kilglass Enniscrone United hitting two first half goals to leave the Beach Boys in total control at the break. Stars were back in the hunt on sixty minutes when Seamie O Boyle netted to give them a lifeline.  Kilglass Enniscrone United introduced young Adam Mullaney and the substitute duly obliged cracking home the third and Killer goal that sealed a great victory and three massive points for Kilglass Enniscrone United.

Benbulben FC welcomed Gurteen Celtic to the Ray Mac Sharry Park in a tight game it was Gurteen who took all three points with a goal each from Billy Flynn and David Shepard both sets of defences were in outstanding form and in the end it was the clinical finishing power of Gurteen Celtic that separated the sides.

Chaffpool United welcome Valley Rovers to Bunninadden in what promised to be an exciting encounter. The young Guns of Valley Rovers up against the stealth and danger of the Pool. The man with the Midas Touch Hughie Marren had the Pool a goal ahead at the break. He then went on to score another three goals leaving the Pool in total command Criostoir Davey adding the fifth and final goal for the Pool. Ciaran Jennings and Jake Tobin were on the mark for Valley Rovers.
