Men Division two: Week Nine results

Avoca 3 (Peter Haughton, Stephen Brownlow, Enda Gallanagh) Skerries 2 (Alan Early, Ali McMahon)

Though Clontarf have moved well clear, the race for the playoff spot has hit top gear with Avoca adding an interesting twist with their 3-2 win over current second-placers Skerries. A scoreless first half was contrasted by an end-to-end second.

Peter Haughton set the ball rolling from a broken down corner before Stephen Brownlow added a great team goal - starting the move himself before Will Aylmer and Ezra Handelman combined to give Brownlow the opportunity to score.

Alan Early pulled one back from a straight corner strike and Ali McMahon capitalised on a defensive error to seemingly salvage a point with three minutes to go but Avoca won a last minute corner which Enda Gallanagh scrambled home for a late win.

Naas 0 Clontarf 7 (Rob Abbott 3, Tom Noonan 2, Gareth Borland, Ciaran McNamara)
Clontarf took full control of the division with a 7-0 win over Naas, going six points clear of the table in the process. Ciaran McNamara opened the scoring before two Tom Noonan strikes made it 3-0 by half-time.

Naas had a couple of chances to get back into the game but a second-half Rob Abbott hat-trick and one from Gareth Borland ensured a comfortable scoreline.

Suttonians 8 (Vikram Singh 3, A Tyrell 2, Ed Hipwell, Darrell Reamsbottom, Richie Wormold) Navan 1 (Alex McKeever)
Suttonians have moved right back into the mix for the playoff position with their third win on the spin - netting 25 goals in the process. Vikram Singh (pictured in recent action against Trinity - courtesy of Jessica Packenham-Money) continued his good recent form with another hat-trick with the rest of the goals shared around the team.

Dublin University 4 (Barry Glavey 2, Andrew Gray, Ben Hewitt) Weston 0
Trinity enjoyed a much improved day out at Santry to beat Weston 4-0, with Barry Glavey getting a double with Andy Gray and former Cliftonville-man Ben Hewitt getting the others.

Sutts shouldn't go counting any Bray chickens just yet...

Glad to see that the departure of Mukhtar & Yasir hasn't had the impact on the results as some may have feared.
The goals are spread out every week, so good to see everyone digging in.

25 goals in the last 3 games...keep up the good work fellas!
