Peel extend lead; Glover inspires Whites

Peel moved five points clear at the top of the Sure Mobile Premier League on Saturday after edging a close contest against Laxey.

The westerners gained revenge for an early season defeat at the Miners with a 2-1 victory at Douglas Road, courtesy of goals from Johnny Myers and a Kevin Megson penalty.

Jim Travers scored the Laxey reply.

With the match between reigning champions St George’s and St Mary’s postponed, Rushen took advantage to move up to third with a comprehensive 6-1 win at Ayre United.

Neil Curphey, Paul Jones, Sean Harrison, Aaron Hawley and Tom Craine were the marksmen for in-form Rushen and there was also an own goal.

Phil Quayle notched the Tangerines’ consolation.

Corinthians gained their first victory of the season with a fine 5-2 win at Union Mills.

And while it wasn’t enough to lift them off the bottom, it means the battle to beat the drop is even tighter.

The star of the show was Steve Glover who hit four as Corinthians finally broke their victory duck.

Lewis Thornton grabbed the other in a first half rout – they led 5-0 at the break.

David Hicks and Chris Kelly replied for Mills.

Four goals were shared at Glen Road between Colby and Ramsey.

Chris McKenna struck a double for the home side with James Sayle and Danny Foulis on target for Ramsey – all the goals coming in the first half.

There was also excitement at Blackberry Lane where Old Boys finally edged out Gymns in a seven goal thriller.

Gymns led 3-2 at the break but Old Boys secured victory thanks to goals from Callum Stewart, Craig Stewart (two) and Dean France.
