Rathmullan Celtic 0 Convoy Arsenal 0
Second-placed Convoy, under former Rathmullan boss Mickey Rodgers, missed the opportunity to go top of the pile with only two games remaining.
Rathmullan, meanwhile, now find themselves five points adrift of Kerrykeel, who edged out Gweedore at Rab’s Park, in the race for the play-off spot with only three games remaining each.
This contest was played in tough conditions, with heavy rain showers and a crosswind making scoring chances hard to come by.
In truth, neither side did enough to gain a breakthrough. Shaun Gallagher had to be alert in the second half to come off his line and foil Darren Mc Elwaine while at the other end player-boss Dara Patton fizzed a free-kick just the wrong side of the post in the closing moments.
A large travelling Glenea contingent made its way to Flagpole Park and, after a scoreless outcome, it was they who left the Seaside happiest with the Temple Domestic Appliances Division One title race now firmly in their hands with just two games to go.Tags:
