THERE WERE WINS for Finn Harps, UCD and Shelbourne in the First Division tonight.

Ollie Horgan’s men earned a 1-0 victory over Wexford in a closely fought match, with Michael O’Connor grabbing a 69th-minute winner for the Donegal-based side at Finn Park.

One goal also decided the Shelbourne-Cobh Ramblers clash, with David O’Sullivan’s goal in first-half stoppage time proving enough to win it for the hosts at Tolka Park.

Meanwhile, UCD went top of the table after a 3-1 home victory over Cabinteely.

Goals from George Kelly, Yousef Mahdy and Gary O’Neil put the Students into a commanding lead, before Jack Watson scored a 74th-minute consolation for the visitors.

Finally, Galway and Drogheda played out a 2-2 draw at United Park.

A first-half brace from Eoin McCormack left the visitors two goals to the good, before the Drogs produced a second-half fightback, with efforts from Mark Doyle and Luke Gallagher enough to earn their side a point.

There is one First Division game tomorrow night at the City Calling Stadium, with Longford taking on Athlone, who are bottom of the table and point-less after four games played.

On Monday, meanwhile, it’s a battle between third and fourth, as Drogheda host Finn Harps.
