Pembroke end Glenanne title challenge


Glenanne 1 Pembroke 4 (Paddy Conlon, Alan Giles, Alan Sothern, Maurice Elliott)

Pembroke took a giant step towards retention of the Leinster League campaign this afternoon following a 4-1 away win to challengers Glenanne. Going into the game Glenanne knew nothing less than 3 points would do following a loss to Fingal yesterday at home, it was Pembroke though who began the brighter, hitting two early goals in the first half through Paddy Conlon and Alan Giles. Glenanne responded some minutes later but Pembroke regained the two goal cushion before half time when Alan Sothern popped up at the far post.

Glenanne pressed the visitors after half time but could not convert their chances, a goal later from Mossie Elliot sealed the tie for the lads when he converted following a short corner move. Pembroke now must look favourites to retain their title with only 2 matches left to play – they play Three Rock at home on Sunday @2pm.
