CARL MCHUGH AND Stephen McLaughlin were both on the mark for their respective clubs on Saturday afternoon.
McHugh opened the scoring for Plymouth Argyle as they maintained their place at the top of the Sky Bet League Two following a 2-1 win over Luton Town.
The Lettermacaward native headed home a Craig Tanner cross on 17 minutes before Josh McQuoid’s header levelled it for the hosts.
However, Plymouth had Ryan Brunt to thank for an injury-time winner.
The win means the south-coast side are four points in front of second-placed Portsmouth after 15 games.
Meanwhile, McLaughlin, from the Isle of Doagh, lobbed Southend United into a 1-0 lead against League One leaders Gillingham, only for Doug Loft to level for the home team 90 seconds from time.
Southend remain in eighth place in the division.
Seamus Coleman’s Everton went down in the Premier League against Arsenal on a 2-1 scoreline.
Elsewhere, in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division, Ramelton’s Barry McNamee scored for Derry City in their 3-2 loss at the hands of Bohemians at the Brandywell.
Mark Timlin from Buncrana was part of the Derry side, who are managed by Paul Hegarty from Ballindrait. Cillian Morrison from Letterkenny was an 83rd minute substitute for the Candystripes.
Johnny Dunleavy from Ballybofey played for Cork City in their 2-2 draw with Dundalk and Killybegs native Shaun Kelly’s Limerick FC remain bottom of the division following their 2-0 defeat against Shamrock Rovers.
Limerick must win at Sligo Rovers this coming weekend in their last fixture of the campaign to have any chance of avoiding relegation.
