Cabinteely 0-3 UCD AFC
UCD AFC closed the gap to league leaders Cabinteely as Pat Devlin's side suffered their first defeat of the season.
It took the away side just eight minutes to take the lead as Colm Whelan found the net. Cabo's night was made even more difficult when Kevin Knight was shown a straight red card in the 35th minute.
The Students' victory never looked in doubt as just five minutes after the break, Yoyo Mahdy's strike doubled their lead and Mahdy completed his brace in the final minute of the match.
Wexford 0-3 Drogheda United
Drogheda United closed the gap at the top of the First Division to just two points thanks to an impressive second-half performance at Ferrycarrig Park.

Just four minutes later, Doyle notched his second of the game and Hugh Douglas secured the points in the final minutes of the game.
Athlone Town 0-4 Shamrock Rovers II

Kavanagh grabbed in second of the game five minutes later with the home side unable to cope with Rovers' movement. Kevin Zefi added a fourth to round off the victory with 11 minutes remaining.
Galway United 0-0 Bray Wanderers
Bray Wanderers remain in third position in the table thanks to a goalless draw against Galway United.
