Galway United under-19s got back to winning ways against Limerick on Wednesday evening.
Nigel Keady’s side put an end to a run of defeats with a 2-0 win against Tommy Barrett’s side.
United lost their previous two league games in injury time against Bray Wanderers and Waterford FC but after Declan Sharkey’s opener, a reversal never looked likely.
The former Finn Harps man sealed a brace with a fantastic strike from distance that left Limerick goalkeeper Tommy Holland stranded.
The win moves United up to 6th place in the league table.
