Tramore 0; Carrick United 4

The Carrick United juggernaut rolled on in Graun Park on Friday night last as they crushed the reigning champions Tramore in a game which produced many talking points, not least the fact that referee Andrew Mullally had to send three players off.

The unsavoury incidents thankfully did not ruin a truly terrific display by a Carrick outfit who have won their opening four games. During that run they have scored 14 goals and have conceded only two, and the chasing pack will have to get their acts together to stay in touch with the Hoops who are playing sublime football under the guidance of their new manager, Brian Barry and his assistant Sam Walsh.

Anthony O’Donnell, the classy Carrick defender, opened the scoring after 25 minutes and from then on the Tramore team had to play second fiddle.

Six minutes into the second half, Anthony Power did brilliantly out on the left and when he crossed the deadly Thomas Fitzgerald, who is back to his best following an injury-plagued 2008-’09 season, finished in great style.
