Peters Return To Summit

Wed 5th May 2010 – CCFL Senior Division
Mullingar Athletic 0-1 St. Peters

It was a real late late show in Gainstown on Wednesday night as St Peters spent almost 80 minutes doing everything but having a decent shot on goal.
A late substitution saw Aidan Ward come off the bench to head into an open goal after some tirless battling from Brian Caudwell.
Peters started on a rocky road even before the kick off when Mark Sherlock went off injured during the warm up. Padraig Moran entered the frey a lot earlier than expected and was a thorn in the side of the Mullingar centre halves. Former Athlone Town hopeful Claudio Nardone togged out at right full for Athletic but despite the promise he showed in the blue and black he did little to impress in the yellow and green of Mullingar. With Peters having the lions share of possession it could all have gone horribly wrong for them when keeper Lucan flapped at a low ball across the box and only for the on rushing striker couldnt quite strech far enough, the Saints would have been in bother. But never to stay down, Peters kept pushing forward in wave after wave of attack until they finally got the goal to send them back to the top of the CCFL Senior Division, 2 points clear of local rivals Willow Park with the sides meeting in the final game of the season to decide on top spot.
