Kelly pounces as city boys deprive carbury

The clash of the Titans in the Sligo Southern Hotel Super League between current champions City United and arch rivals Carbury lived up to its billing in this five goal rumble at Sean Fallon Park.

Paddy Conlon gave City the lead only to see two fabulous strikes from both Glen Shannon and Barry Mc Laughlin fire Carbury into the lead.

Then came an unfortunate own goal by Keith Lynch to leave the game on a knife edge and it looked to be a share of the spoils until the Super league's leading scorer Gareth Kelly stepped up to the mark with two minutes left to crash home a glorious winner and break the hearts of Carbury. City in this form should retain their crown without doubt but Carbury have the pedigree and with a rub of the green can go all the way and lift the Blue Ribband Trophy, the Connacht Cup. They really have all to play for.
