Limerick District League
Pike Rovers -1
Having bounced back from a poor start to go on the goal trail in three previous wins Pike Rovers showed they are capable of winning ugly when needed on Sunday morning.
Considering the quality and beauty of the decisive strike ‘ugly’ might be a bit harsh, but the title hopefuls did manage win steal a win in a game dominated by defences.
The victory over Ballynanty, who themselves scored four last time out, came courtesy of a brilliant Steven McGann wonder strike and Pike have now won their last four games without conceding a goal.
Both sides defended well on the day and there wasn’t too much free flowing attacking football as a result.
However, one player did manage to find the net and did so in style. McGann fired home from the edge of the area after a clever cut back from the inform Colin Daly.
The win moves Pike up to fifth just four points off early leaders Regional while Balla are one place and one point behind them.
