Goodwick United 3
St Ishmaels 1
Stephen Evans scored twice to help Goodwick United to a comfortable victory over St Ishmaels at Phoenix Park.
The in-form striker grabbed a goal in each half alongside a strike from Lewis Banks to secure their seventh win of the season, this win pushes them up to fourth spot.
Evans opened the scoring in the 18th minute; some good built-play left Evans with the easy task of slotting past Tish keeper Jonathan Pawlett.
Two minutes after half time and Banks added his side’s second to give Steve Blackford’s home outfit some breathing space.
On the hour mark and the hosts scored a third goal.
James Evans made good ground down the right before Stephen Evans rifled a shot into the top corner, after latching on to his cross.
However, Tish bagged the best goal of the match.
Gareth Fawcett picked the ball up on half way beat several defenders with a mazy run before neatly slotting past keeper Carl Woodhouse.
Goodwick player boss Steve Blackford said afterwards: “Tish are always a tough side to beat.
I’m happy we won but disappointed we conceded a goal, albeit a brilliant effort by Fawcett.”
Tish manager Robbie Thomas said: “No complaints on the day, we were beaten by a better team.”
