Lucan United have been crowned LSL Senior Sunday champions for the first time in their history.

Keith Baker’s side have been the pacesetters in the top-flight this term and usurped reigning holders St Mochta’s on Wednesday night. 

On Tuesday evening, Lucan were defeated at home by Wayside Celtic - missing the chance to win it on their terms. 

Luke Walsh scored for Lucan - but goals from Cian Fay and Darragh O’Connor secured the three points for Ross Zambra’s Wayside Celtic.

But Lucan did not have to wait long to be confirmed as league winners after second-placed St Mochta’s lost 2-0 at home to Bangor Celtic. 

John Scott’s Bangor had to play most of the second-half with ten-men after having a player sent off in the 50th minute.

But goals from Ogi Lovic and Troy Steadman proved decisive for the visitors at Porterstown Road.

Elsewhere, Killester Donnycarney secured their top-flight status with a 3-1 win over relegation rivals Crumlin United. 

And in doing so, they also confirmed Wayside’s safety. 

But the Hadden Park side were convincing winners over Crumlin - racing into a 3-0 lead before conceding a late consolation. 

Steven Nolan, Rob Dunne and Ronan Kilkenny were on target for the North Dublin side - with former Bray Wanderers youth Zach Donohue scoring for Crumlin.

Crumlin are now in serious relegation peril and require results to go their way to stay up. 

They are three points behind Maynooth University Town and Tolka Rovers with just one game to play - but have played a fixture more than them both.

If both teams pick up a single point in their remaining two outings, Crumlin will be relegated. 

And Tolka are on a good run of form - picking up seven points from the last nine on offer. 

Their most recent success saw them dismiss Liffey Wanderers on Tuesday night with a 4-2 victory.

A Stephen Meaney brace was key for the Frank Cooke Park outfit, with Dean Paget and Glen McAuley also scoring. 

Caleb Gyasi and Stanislav Karavanets were on target for the relegated Liffeys.

Meanwhile, there was drama at Gannon Park as Malahide United came from 2-0 down to defeat St Francis. 

The Gannon Park side fell behind after goals from Sean O’Mahoney and Janabi Amour - but recovered well to claim all three points. 

Jake McCormack, Jake O’Connor and Alan O’Sullivan all struck for Kevin Craven’s men late on as the Metropolitan Cup winners’ strong end to the season continued.
