Longford Town 2 - 3 Finn Harps
Cobh Ramblers 2 - 2 Finn Harps
St. Colman’s Park has been the place to be this season if it’s goals you’re after, and it didn’t disappoint on Saturday evening as Cobh Ramblers and Finn Harps played out a 2-2 draw in the Airtricity League First Division. Cobh struck first blood through Brian Fitzgerald, before Kevin McHugh equalised for the visitors. Davin O’Neill immediately pulled one back, but Sean McCarron (pictured) struck late to secure a point for the Harps.
Finn Harps 0 Waterford United 1
Paudie Quinn netted the only goal of the game twelve minutes from time to condemn Finn Harps to their first home defeat of the season. Quinn stole in to nod home at the near post after Darragh Walshe had skipped by Damien McNulty to swing in the cross.
Finn Harps 1 - 0 Salthill Devon
The Barclay’s Premier League trophy and the Community Shield were on display at Finn Park on Friday night but at least the local support left the ground happy having seen Finn Harps get back to winning ways with a narrow win over 10-man Salthill Devon.
Athlone Town 1 - 0 Finn Harps
Athlone Towwn picked up the points at Lisseywoolen on Friday night when Garbhan Coughlan’s goal twenty minutes from time handed Finn Harps their first defeat of 2013.
Finn Harps 0 - 0 Wexford Youths
Finn Harps remain unbeaten in the Airtricity League First Division campaign but Friday night’s scoreless draw with Wexford Youths was a damp squib. The point means Peter Hutton’s team are still undefeated this term but the Harps manager would not have been happy with his side’s performance. In the week leading up to the match the Derry native said he was reasonably content with the progress to date but hoped to see his team perform for the 90 minutes rather than in fits and starts. They didn’t even manage that on Friday.
