Baldoyle United travelled to Carlow on Sunday and a hard working display saw them overcome an injury stricken Hanover Harps side 3-2. The AUL side always seemed to be chasing the game as they conceded early and had to withstand a barrage of Hanover attacks to keep themselves in the game, still just 1-0 down at the break. The second half was a little more evenly contested but it was fifteen minutes from time before the visitors levelled, only for Hanover to score again a minute later.
