LSL Senior Sunday
Wayside Celtic – 2
UCD – 1
Wayside Celtic picked up their first Senior Sunday win since the beginning of October after they defeated near-table rivals UCD 2-1 at Jackson Park on Sunday afternoon.
Going into the game Wayside had failed to pick up three points since their 1-0 victory over Crumlin four months ago despite a number of fine performances which included holding high-flyers Cherry Orchard and St Mochtas to 1-1 draws.
UCD meanwhile were in the midst of an excellent start to 2017 where they had won 2 of their 4 games since the Christmas break.
Wayside took a 1-0 first-half lead after a fine finish from Luke McWilliams to give Celtic the half-time advantage. Ray Whelehan then doubled his sides tally with fifteen to play to give the hosts some breathing space.
And despite UCD pulling one back with ten minutes to play, the hosts held out to seal the three points and leapfrog The Students in the Senior Sunday table into seventh place.
