Goal Of The Season Contender Secures Athlone First Away Win

Carl Mujaguzi's volley won Athlone three points in Tralee on Friday.

A remarkable goal of the season contender secured Athlone Town their first away win of the league season over the weekend.

Dario Castelo's side trailed early on to Kerry thanks to a Kennedy Amechi penalty after Aaron Connolly handled in the box.

Town equalised through Ruben Ferreira before a Carl Mujaguzi scissor kick from a flicked on long throw curled in to the top corner from the edge of the box.

Athlone held on to leave Mounthawk Park with a 2-1 win and all three points.

Castelo says his players deserved the win:

Elsewhere in the league, Bray beat Treaty 2-1, Finn Harps lost on the road to Cobh Ramblers 2-0, and UCD beat Wexford 3-2.
