Athlone Town's Unbeaten Run Ends Against Cabinteely

The midlanders remain top of the SSE Airtricity First Division.

A stunning 30 yard Ben Hanrahan strike ended Athlone Town's five game undefeated streak in the SSE Airtricity League on Friday night.

That coupled with Niall Barnes first ever league goal was enough to secure Cabinteely a 2-1 victory at Lissywoolen. 

Adam Wixted pulled one back for the midlanders but it wasn't to be after a number of spurned chances and all eyes now turn to a top of the table clash with Shelbourne next weekend.

Indeed late drama at Tolka Park is what keeps Adrian Carberry's side top of the table. 

Remarkably three goals were scored in injury time of the second half, first dragging Shelbourne from a one goal deficit to lead Treaty United before the Limerick side equalised once again in the 97th minute. 

First Division Results:

Athlone 1-2 Cabinteely

Shelbourne 2-2 Treaty United

Wexford FC 0-6 UCD

Bray Wanderers 0-0 Cork City
