Darragh Concannon converted a penalty kick for the winners in the first half and Liam Lynch and Gary Canavan added two more after the break.

Skyvalley Rovers picked up all three points from their Division 1 game away to old rivals Shiven Rovers. The winners started well and created a few good chances in the first twenty minutes. From then on the Newbridge side were better and it was only in the last quarter of the game that Skyvalley Rovers regained the advantage. The all important goal was scored by Callum O Brien with eleven minutes left to play.

In Division 2 Dunmore Town continued their good run with a 1 – 0 win over St Cuans Ahascragh United at Dunmore. Shane Davis gave the home side a 1- 0 lead after twenty minutes.
