League of Ireland First Division round up: Waterford win and Wexford draw

Danny Searle's Waterford FC returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory in Athlone in game week four of the SSE Airtricity First division.

Shane Griffin netted the game's only goal in the 15', supplying the ideal response to last weekend's defeat against Galway United at the RSC.

The win leaves the Blues in fourth place, five points behind leaders Galway.



Wexford FC collected a point and a clean sheet on the road to Finn Harps.

That one finished scoreless, with the Ferrycarrig outfit in sixth spot with four points from four games played.

Speaking to Beat Sport afterwards, manager James Keddy was pleased with his side's performance.

"We played really well in the first half and defended well in the second," he said.


"We had to play with ten men for the last ten minutes, so I'm happy with a point and another clean sheet."

Bray and Longford finished scoreless, while Cobh saw off Treaty United by a scoreline of 3 goals to nil at Markets Field.

That win sees the Cork outfit second in the table, with ten points from a possible twelve.


Finally, Galway United maintained their 100% start to the season with a 9-1 demolition at home to league newcomers Kerry FC.

It was a harsh lesson learned by the men from the Kingdom, as John Caulfield's men were ruthless in their display.

21-year-old Edward McCarthy took the match ball home with a fine hattrick on the night.
