Danaher powers Town to another success

Danaher powered home Kevin Williamson’s corner on 34 minutes that proved decisive. They could have added a second goal soon after when Williamson was brought down in the Harps’ box but referee Conor Fitzgerald waved the play on.

Harps’ Packie Mailey had a couple of headers cleared off the Athlone line but that was as close as they came as a dogged home side held on.

ATHLONE TOWN: Schlingermann, Scullion (Gill 46), Williamson, Woods, Danaher, Barrett, Relihan, Tier (Sweeney 90), Stack, Daly, Smith (Gardiner 57).

FINN HARPS: Gallagher, Doherty (McMenamin 46), McLoughlin, Mailey, O’Grady, Conaghan (Curtis 89), Forker, McHugh, Harkin, Bonner (Merrit 78), Cowan.

Referee: C Fitzgerald (Dublin).
