First Division round-up: Athlone claim late draw as Galway United continue to set the pace

Athlone Town claimed a dramatic draw from the jaws of defeat with a 2-2 stalemate against Treaty United at Lissywollen.

Dermot Lennon’s side were trailing 2-0 and were a man down before they launched a remarkable late fightback against Tommy Barrett’s men.

Enda Curran scored in the 52nd minute to give the Limerick side a 1-0 lead just four minutes before Athlone’s Jamar Campion-Hinds was dismissed for a second bookable offence.

And in the 69th minute the striker looked to have sealed the points for Treaty with another goal.

But Athlone rallied late on and scored two goals.

American Isaie Louis halved the deficit in the 83rd minute before Noah van Geenen levelled with the last kick of the game in the 99th minute.

Meanwhile, Galway United’s winning streak continued with a 2-0 win away to Cobh Ramblers at St Colman’s Park.

Vincent Borden and Ryan Manning both netted for the Tribesmen as they moved on to 15 points – five clear of Cobh.

And at Ferrycarrig Park Wexford saw off Kerry 2-1.

Billy Dennehy’s side responded from their most recent hammering against Galway with a spirited display but it would not see them avoid defeat.

Mark Hanratty and Brandon McCann saw James Keddy’s side take a 2-0 lead against the Kingdom.

But forward Leo Gaxha halved the deficit in the 88th minute with a header as the game ended 2-1.
