The Shamrocks Reserves and Over 30s will head into Spring 2015 with big leads in their respective divisions thanks to comprehensive wins on Sunday.
A hat trick from Mohamed Fofana who was making guest appearance for Stevie Doyle’s Reserves helped the Rocks beat Sporting Astoria 6-2 at St. Michael’s Playground.
Fofana opened the scoring for the Shamrocks after 20 mins and the Ivorien added a second ten minutes later.
Colum McComish netted the third after 40 mins after great work from Fofana on the right wing.
Sporting Astoria pulled one back on the hour mark but Fofana completed his hat-trick after 65 minutes.
Sporting Astoria added a second after 75 minutes but then Jim Wong and Colum McComish rounded out the scoring in the final ten minutes.
Later at Randall’s Island, the Over 30s got back to winning ways in a crucial game against second placed NY Dinamo, beating the hosts 3-0 in a fiery encounter.
The Rocks were off the mark with just two minutes on the clock when Sebastien Thiol crossed low to midfielder Alex Berne who drilled home his fifth of the season.
Sean Riley then scored the goal of the day – a half volley from 20 yards which gave the Dinamo keeper no chance.
Dinamo enjoyed a period of dominance but the Rocks defended well until a late own goal ensured all three points.
