Portarlington emerged with ten points to spare at home to The Heath to claim their second win of the campaign on Saturday evening.
Portarlington 2 - 14
The Heath 0 - 10
Laois Shopping Centre ACFL Division 1A
A Portarlington side missing key players like Robbie Pigott, Paddy O'Sullivan and Cathal Ryan still proved far too strong for The Heath in McCann Park.
The Heath started brightly, leading 0-5 to 0-1 half-way through the first half, with the wind at their backs. However, Portarlington finished the half dominantly to go in with a three point advantage.
Despite Jake Foster getting a goal for the hosts on the restart, The Heath managed to make a contest of it over the next ten minutes.
A second Portarlington goal from Daragh Galvin put daylight between the sides though, and Portarlington won by ten points in the end.
