Peter is the top dog for the Town Terriers

OFFALY senior footballer Peter Cunningham topped the Portarlington Town scoring charts when he netted in his side's CCFL Shield clash with Maryborough.

The Portarlington Terriers left it late to snatch victory in the match because Cunningham, whose strike brought him to five for the season, did not score until the 82nd minute.

After he nodded in a Christopher Booth cross, Stephen Terry hit the Terriers' second and they rounded off a 3-1 win at Portlaoise Leisure Centre when Jason Jordan made little of the injury which had prevented him from starting by heading home a Brendan Maher ball.

In the previous round Delwyn Mooney scored his first goal for Portarlington in the 3-2 victory over BBC United. Two-goal hero Jamie Evans netted an injury time winner.
