SLIGO LEITRIM LEAGUE

Carbury FC complete five-in-a-row as they hit Real Tubber for six

Big game this weekend in the Sligo Southern Hotel Super League seen Carbury FC travelling to Real Tubber in pursuit of 5th Consecutive Super League title.

Carbury on form looked a banker for this one, but Real Tubber with a full side, at home, may well make Carbury wait another week, and so it was all to play for.

The champion’s elect was in devastating form, Jason Lyons grabbing two goals with a goal each from Mark Mc Goldrick, Niall Brennan, Mark Hannon, and Gareth Kelly stamping the seal of Champions on Carbury for the 5th time. Real Tubber scored once courtesy of Raff Cretaro but today was all about Carbury and rightly so with five in row titles they are the Sligo Southern Hotel Super League Champions for the 21/22 Season.

MCR welcomed Ballymote Celtic to Sean Fallon Park Cranmore, a win for MCR pushing them ever nearer the top while Ballymote Celtic in the relegation zone were in desperate need of points. MCR left nothing to chance with Donagh Crowne hitting a hat-trick, and a goal each from Bradley Fowley and Daniel Lang capturing all three points for MCR continue their form. Ballymote Celtic scored once via Ciaran Anderson but despite their best efforts there are still in the relegation zone.

Manor Rangers welcomed Cliffoney Celtic to the Bee Park Manorhamilton both sides in mid table should make for a great game without the pressure. Manor proved the more clinical side Philip Patton scoring James Glancy adding a third while Paddy Woulfe netted from the penalty spot that seen the Manor Boys hit four goals without reply.

Massive local derby clash at Riverstown where Arrow Harps welcomed neighbours Aughanagh Celtic. Both sides in desperate need of a few safety points ensured a tense and hard-fought battle. Arrow Harps five minutes from the break went ahead with a Shane Deignan goal. Harps continued to dominate and with eight minutes remaining Harps looked all set for three valuable points.

Then Niall Craig popped up and net a glorious equaliser for Aughanagh Celtic and a point looked safe for both sides. But it was not to be and things got worse for Arrow Harps when two minutes from time Daniel Lyons rifled home the 24 Caret Golden Goal that leaves Aughanagh Celtic in eight place on the leader board their last game at home to Real Tubber will be a cliff hanger for both sides, while Arrow Harps are away to Cartron United.

Merville United a very young and talented side languishing at the bottom of the table were at home to another young side Ballisodare United points here at a premium. Ballisodare thanks to two goals from Adam Grace led at the halfway stage. Conor Lynch and Andre Mills were on target for Merville United in the second half that gave them a share of the spoils.

Calry Bohs leading the pack in the Andrew Mullen Premier League, welcome Benbulben to Hazelwood a win here would push them on to forty-one points and heap more pressure on the chasing pack. Bohs signalled their intent when Aaron Flynn had them a goal to the good after one minute. Benbulben levelled ten minutes from half time when Michael Gilmartin netted but Bohs still managed to lead at the break when Eoin Doherty cracked home a superb free kick.

The second half was eight minutes old when Eoin Doherty produced a replica free kick and Bohs were now in the driving seat. Jamie Grehan was on target five minutes later when Jack Mc Govern rounding of the scoring for Calry twenty minutes from time. Benbulben never gave up the fight and Michael Gilmartin got his second goal of the day two minutes from full time.

Chaffpool United in fourth place on the leader board welcomed second in the table St Johns to Bunnanaddan. This was a game crucial to both sides, St Johns endeavouring to remain within striking distance of Calry Bohs, but a win for the Pool would see an even tighter run in and what a game we had that in the end seen St Johns emerge winners by the odd goal in five. Cathal Brennan and Criostoir Davey each scored for the Pool. St Johns responding with a goal each from Jack Canning and Donal Fidgeon.

A draw seemed assured until two minutes from time St Johns were awarded a penalty an Steven Armstrong stepped up to drive home a magnificent penalty giving St Johns all three points and the battle for dominances of this league continues.

Coolaney United in third place welcomed Ballygawley Celtic a home win here would put Coolaney right back in the mix, but could they deliver. The answer was yes, two goals from Cathal Davey and a third from Mattie Racki doing the damage, while Ballygawley Celtic netted twice courtesy of Christy Markham. Both sides each missed a penalty while Coolaney United had Enda Gallagher dismissed for violent conduct.

Carrick Town hosted Kilglass Inishscrone United at the Showgrounds, Carrick on Shannon. The Town would welcome a few more safety points, while their opponents depending on other results might gain a slight improvement on the fifth place standing. Both sides play open attacking football, so a great game was on the cards. It also turned out to be the highest scoring game of the day with Carrick Town emerging winners in a twelve – goal thriller.

The Town got off to a flyer leading at one stage by three goals with a blistering hat-trick from Ray Mulvey and yet Kilglass Inishscrone United responded with a Ronan Martin Hat trick. David Regan scored twice for the Town and a goal each from Sean Flanagan plus a penalty netted by Shane Beirne earning the Town three priceless points. Ronan Martin and Zak Casey were also on target for Kilglass Inishscrone United it what was an amazing game.

Valley Rovers was at home Gurteen Celtic with points critical for both teams. Gurteen with five minutes remaining hit the front with a bullet of a goal from Tony Taylor. Then at the final throw of the dice the Red Mist descended when Eoin O Donoghue handled the ball to stop a certain goal, Red Card and a penalty kick to Valley Rovers that Ciaran Jennings dispatched to the back of the net and earned a share of the spoils for the Valley Boys.

Strand Celtic welcomed Athenry FC to the Ray Mac Sharry Complex in the Quarter Finals of the Connacht Cup. A big ask for the young guns of Strand against a side that had in recent years been one of the dominant clubs in this competition. The winners would face an away trip in the semi finals to Salthill Devon, but the call of duty today was for victory.

However, it was not to be as the very experienced Athenry side scored twice to advance to the Semi Finals. In wishing the Athenry side continued success in the competition we congratulate the Strand players, management and supporters on a superb Cup run and they will be back..
