Treaty United’s unbeaten start to the League of Ireland First Division season came to an end on Friday night, as Finn Harps picked up a 1-0 win at the Markets Field

Tommy Barrett’s men have picked up wins over Cobh Ramblers, UCD and Kerry this season, as well as drawing with Cork City and Bray Wanderers.

Finn Harps moved above the Shannonsiders into second place, although the Donegal outfit have played a game more than their Limerick counterparts, who fell to fourth.

It was a tight game on Friday night, with Tony McNamee’s strike ten minutes from time the only goal of the game. With four goals conceded in six games, Treaty still boast the second best defence in the league.

The visitors were arguably the better side in the first-half, as they created a number of chances, former Treaty man Success Edogun involved.

Barrett’s side tested Tim-Oliver Hiemer before the break, but to no avail, and the teams headed in level at the break.

Treaty keeper Corey Chambers was in fine form to keep Harps at bay, but his resolve was broken ten minutes from time when captain Tony McNamee stuck a right footed finish from the edge of the box to give his side the lead.

A first league defeat of the season for Treaty United, who now find themselves in fourth, after UCD beat Longford Town.

Next up for the Shannonsiders is a trip to Athlone on Monday night, as they look to get back on track.
