Sean Heaney headed home the winner that sent St Mochta’s heading to the top of the Senior Sunday league table for the first time this season.
The centre-back converted come set piece time early in the second half to help the Saints overcome newly promoted Lucan United at O’Hanlon Park on Sunday.
Liam Brady, whose brother Robbie was called back into the Ireland squad last week, continued a good week for the family when he scored as early as the sixth minute.
Lucan leveled before the turn, which then allowed Heaney, who was a threat from set plays throughout, to claim hero status and score the winner just before the hour mark.
The win was Brian McCarthy men’s second in four days after the Saints defeated Bluebell by the same scoreline on Wednesday thanks to goals from Gareth ‘Redser’ Brady and Mickey Scott.
The six points banked in a week saw them move to the top of the table at this early stage just two points clear of Killester Donnycarney, who defeated Wayside Celtic over the weekend, and early surprise package Kilnamanagh, who registered a win over Ballymun United
Sean Golding put in a Man of the Match performance for Killester scoring his first and second goals for the club in a 2-0 win.
Shane Stritch and Glen Cauley scored for Bluebell as they drew with Malahide United at the Red Cow on Sunday, while Bangor Celtic and Home Farm also shared the spoils after a scoreless draw.
Dean Murphy scored a brace as Liffeywanders won Senior Sunday’s only Friday night game.
The Pearse Street side and Murphy traded early goals with Glebe North before Aaron Montgomery fired home a decisive third from a spotkick.
