The Bit o’Red came away with a 2-1 win Saturday afternoon.
Striker Mark Byrne got his first of the season on 23 minutes with a hader from James McGrath's cross.
Gary Higgins followed that up on 29 when Byrne turned provider to cross for him from the right, Higgins scored for the second game in a row by reacting quickest after his initial shot was denied.
