Limerick District League
Pike Rovers were in seventh heaven on Sunday morning after a one sided demolition of Carew Park.
Last season’s runners up recorded their second win of the season and second win in four days in emphatic fashion.
Having been tested by newly promoted Geraldines on Wednesday Rovers had no problems taking care of old rivals Carew.
Indeed, the title hopefuls put seven past Park to make it nine goals and six points from two games.
Former Limerick FC player and new signing Darragh Rainsford broke the deadlock and his Pike duct in sensational fashion to get the ball rolling.
Stephen McGann then raced onto a Colin Daly flick on before lobbing over the Carew keeper for Pike’s second of the day and his second of the season.
Daly got another assist soon after as Rovers pushed the advantage to three this time Eoin ‘Borris’ Hanrahan finishing under the keeper after being played through.
Shane Walsh’s corner flew straight into the net as things went from bad to worse for the visitors.
Rovers took that four goal cushion into the break and were not long about increasing it.
McGann did brilliant in the middle of the park, feed Rainsford, who teed up ‘Boris’ for a tap in.
Mike Shiels men were not happy with five and continued their search for goals. Jonathan Hanaffin scored a sixth after more bright play from former Moyross player Rainsford, while Paddy O’Malley put the icing of the cake with a fine finish after Daly teed him up.
