Enda Curran replaced Davy O'Sullivan early in the first half and scored a hat-trick to give Longford all 3 points. Athlone Town had Jason Molloy sent off in the 80th minute and struggled defensively before Curran got his 3rd after the 90th minute.
Another exciting El Clasico and another win against our neighbours for Longford Town.
Enda Curran's first goal against his old club, started from a blistering run from Don Cowan down the right wing resulted in a cross thats stopped by the Athlone keeper but it fell to Curran who hits home for the opener of El Clasico. Enda Curran got his second with a beautiful free kick that was tucked away into the bottom corner before Athlone got 1 back through Dragog Sfrijan.
