(AFTER EXTRA-TIME)

Aughrim did a unique U12 WDSL treble as they finished the season unbeaten.

Having already won the U12 Division 2 League and Cup double, they added the U12 Division 1 Plate to their trophy collection.

But Rangers had to come from behind to claim victory over Arklow on Saturday June 9 at Finn Park in Kilcoole.

The Town took the lead when Finn Fortune converted a first-half penalty after handball in the box.

Aughrim levelled matters in the second half of normal time through Cian Moules' terrific shot.

And went on to claim the winner with just four minutes of the second period of extra-time remaining when Pierce Lawlor headed in Alan

Doyle's free-kick.
