Soccer:St Patrick’s Athletic will take a 1-0 lead to Iceland next week after Christy Fagan got the winner for the homeside in their Europa League Cup first round qualifier at Richmond Park.

Fagan struck from close range in the 39th minute after good work from Darren Meenan resulted in Ger O'Brien crossing for the goalscorer.

At Dalymount Park, Bohemiansfailed to gain the upper hand against their Icelandic opponents Thor Akureyri.

Bohs took the game to the visitors in the first half but relied on referee Nikola Razic waving a way a Thor penalty claim when Evan McMillan looked to have handled in the area.

Bohs controlled much of the second half, as well, but took nothing from a slew of corners and had to settle for a draw after a physical encounter.

Cliftonville’sLiam Boyce ensured they take a 1-0 lead back to Sweden after victory over Kalmar FF, but Crusaderswere outclassed by Norwegian outfit Rosenborg BK at Seaview and beaten 3-0.
