Limerick District League Premier Division Round-Up

It was a busy night in the Limerick District League Premier Division with five games completed. The game between Prospect Priory and Mungret Regional was postponed as referee John McNamara deemed the pitch to be unplayable.

In the biggest game of the night, Ballynanty Rovers defeated Pike Rovers 2-3 at Crosagalla in a game that was streamed live by Pike as no supporters were allowed to attend games in line with Government guidelines.

Connor Ellis picked up his sixth goal of the season as Ballynanty raced out of the traps but a free-kick from Colin Daly levelled matters before half time. Derek Daly restored Balla’s lead but it looked as though the game would end in a share of the spoils as Kieran Hanlon scored against his former club with ten minutes remaining.

However, former Pike man Arron Nunan scored a vital injury time winner to maintain Dave Dunphy’s 100% start as manager of the northside club.

It was a night which produced plenty of goals and there were five more at the Garryowen Green as Coonagh won their second game in 4 days against Geraldines. Coonagh were the better team in the opening quarter and took the lead when Will Brick converted. Geraldines responded well and goals from Trevor Daly and Shane Byrne completed a turnaround.

However, Coonagh showed great character of their own and equalised when Martin Deady scored a penalty. Shortly afterwards Coonagh took the lead through former Geraldines player Barry Harnett but the drama did not stop there.

Harnett was then called upon to go in goals when Jose Equaiem was sent off for a professional foul and Harnett sensationally saved the penalty of former teammate Bobby Tier to secure the win.

Fairview Rangers played their first league game of the new campaign in Dooradoyle when they faced Regional United who were also playing their first game of the season. The club were awarded 6 points by the LDMC without kicking a ball this week due to the circumstances surrounding the cancellations of their games against both Janesboro and Prospect.

Tonight’s game ended 1-1 with Robbie Kelleher scoring for Fairview and Kieran O’Connell equalised from the penalty spot for Tom O’Connell’s Regional.

Janesboro were 3-1 victors over Nenagh as David Hannon, Dermot Hughes and Adam Costello supplied the goals for the home side. Brian McGee netted a consolation for the visitors.

Aisling Annacotty maintained their 100% record in the new season with a facile 9-3 victory over Kilmallock at home. Aaron Murphy continued his recent good form by bagging a hattrick for Shane O’Hanlon’s men.

Adam Foley scored a brace on his debut and was joined on the scoresheet by Shane Clarke (2), Killian Maloney and an own goal. Paul Doona (penalty), Jason and Tommy Heffernan accounted for the goals for Kilmallock.
