A busy Friday evening of sporting action has just concluded with games down for the decision in football, hurling and soccer.
In the Leinster Senior League, Portlaoise’s push for promotion continued as they cemented third place with a 3-0 win over Beggsboro this evening.
Colm Poole set them on their way in the first half with a Jody Dillon brace sealing things in the second period.
Meanwhile, in Division 1 of the ACHL, Portlaoise claimed their first win at the expense of Abbeyleix.
This was a battle between two of the three teams who had lost all of their games but Portlaoise triumphed by two points in the end.
Elsewhere, in the ACFL Division 1A, The Heath joined Portlaoise in second place after drawing with Portarlington.
