Clyde O’Connell doubled their advantage with a well taken finish. But Athlone were handed a lifeline before the half when they were awarded a penalty.

Kurtis Byrne made no mistake with the game finely poised at the half.

The second half belonged to the away side in terms of possession but Treaty rarely looked like conceding as they held out for a hard-fought win.
