Westport and S&F set the early pace

The top of the Elverys Sports Super League has a familiar look to it after two rounds of action with defending champions Westport United sitting on top of the pile.

United have two wins from their opening two games as do second placed Straide and Foxford United, with Ballina Town and Castlebar Celtic who played out a 1-1 draw last weekend sitting behind the top two on four points.

The Covies did their goal difference no harm last weekend when they hit six past visitors Iorras Aontaithe with Brandon Scahill grabbing a brace along with goals from Mikey O'Brien, Peter Corcoran, Adam Mulchrone, and Jesper Frisch. This weekend they will travel to newly promoted Kiltimagh-Knock United on Saturday evening where they will be expected to make it three from three.

The Super League newsboys got their league season under way last weekend when they were beaten 4-1 in Green Road by Straide and Foxford United. Liam Groarke scored their first goal in the top division to send his side in leading 1-0 at the break, but they were hit for four in the second 45 minutes by the hosts.

The big game of the weekend last time around was the meeting of Castlebar Celtic and Ballina Town in Celtic Park, the two league hopefuls played out a 1-1 draw with Colm Nevin's late goal cancelling out Jamie Cawley's earlier strike for the visitors to keep Celtic's long unbeaten run at home intact.

Celtic are on Connacht Cup duty this weekend, while Ballina Town will be hosting a winless Claremorris to Belleek on Saturday night. Last time out the Concannon Park men were picked off 2-0 at home by Ballyheane - who got their league season off to a winning start thanks to goals from Shea Benson and Ciaran Lyons.

The Hane will be on the road this weekend where they will take on a Straide and Foxford United side who will be looking to make it three wins from three. After falling behind to Kiltimagh-Knock United last weekend they rallied well to stick four past the east Mayo men in the second half, with John Durkan striking twice, along with goals from Daniel Gorman and Johnny Cocozza.

Manualla will make the long trip to Erris to take on Iorras Aontaithe off the back of an exciting 3-3 draw against local rivals Ballyglass in Carramore last weekend. Manulla raced into an early two goal lead thanks to a double from Lucas De Paula, before Keelan McDonnell pulled one back before the break for the visitors. The then pushed themselves into the lead thanks to a brace from JP O'Gorman, but Johnny Burke headed home for Manulla to salvage a point for his side near the death. Ballyglass have the weekend off with their game against Castlebar Celtic postponed because of Celtic's cup obligations.
