Glebe North may just have put themselves into the title race by registering the only LSL Senior Sunday top-half win on Sunday gone.

The Ballbrigian side were the only team from the top seven going into a busy Sunday morning to bank three points – and they benefited accordingly.

Glebe moved North up the table thanks to a win over Kilnamanagh in Tallaght, extending their unbeaten run to six league games and moving up to fifth in the process.

The North County Dublin side are now just three points and one win off second and six behind early front runners Maynooth University Town at the top.

Their latest positive result came away from home and courtesy of a double from former Cabinteely attacker Ollie Hamzalt and a finish from Anto Burke.

Wayside Celtic brought their fine October form into November and built on wins over St Mochta’s and Kilnamanagh with a positive result away to Bangor Celtic.

Celtic remain second after a 2-2 draw and are another surprise team flirting with a title challenge.

Killlester Donnycarney and Lucan United shared the spoils after their tie finished with the same scoreline.

Josh Scully with a near post thunderbolt and a finish from recent Regions Cup hero Sam Burgess accounted for Killester’s goals, while Jake Ellis and Gary Seery scored for United in Hadden Park

A double from underage graduate Shane Lyons helped Home Farm celebrate an impressive away win.

The Whitehall side beat Bluebell at the Red Cow to move up to seventh in the table with a number of games in hand over those around them. Eoin Murray got the other in a 1-3 win.

That defeat leaves Bluebell in the relegation zone at this early stage, a place behind reigning champions Crumlin, who lost by a single goal to Ballymun United on the same morning. 

The Mun moved to mid table courtesy of young starlet Danny Mhondiwa’s late finish.

Maynooth beat Malahide United on Friday to increase their lead at the top to four points.
