Comprehensive wins for both teams last Saturday as the Majors finally got off the mark for the season by trouncing Swords Celtic 5-1 at Rockfield Park. It was a frustrating first half for the Penguins, who were pegged back almost immediately after Jamie McCaul had opened the scoring, but Ben Kelly's first majors goal and a quickfire hat-trick from Ryan Scollard ensured a comfortable second half for Alan Burns's.boys.
Not to be outdone, the Premiers bounced back after a couple of difficult results with a big win of their own, seeing off Dunboyne AFC in Meath. Dan Willis broke his duck for Seaford to open the scoring, but it was substitute Niall Holleran who stole the show, coming off the bench fo set up Des Eiffe before adding two more himself in the 4-1 win.
The Premiers got off to a perfect start in Major 1C with two quick wins to begin their campaign.
On Saturday ,they saw off Palmerstown FC courtesy of a couple of late goals from stalwarts Ian Nolan and Darragh Roche, after Chris Monk had earlier given Seaford the lead.
Then on Monday evening, Paulie Morris's men made the long trip to Newbridge Town and returned with another three points, this time largely controlling the game throughout and eventually securing the win through goals from Conor Fennell and debutant Ben Kelly.

Seaford's season in LSL Major 1 followed a similar patter to the previous campaign, as Alan Burns's side recovered from a poor start to go on a strong run in the wintertime, before their promotion push stalled badly in the final phase.
The season began in disastrous fashion as the side suffered a 1-5 hammering at home against Aungier Celtic, but Killian Campion's late consolation goal at set in motion a run which saw the Penguins become the only team in the division to score in every single league game.
After a disastrous extra time exit from the FAI Junior Cup against SVS, there was a big turning point in the season in the away match against Railway Union, when a sensational last-minute equaliser got the Penguins off the mark for the season, courtesy of a brilliant assist from Darragh Roche and a bullet header from Ryan Scollard.
The following week saw back-to-back wins, as Seaford followed up a comfortable victory away against Home Farm, with a last-gasp winner against Glebe North, before finishing out 2022 by giving a better account of themselves against Aungier with a battling draw at Brickfield Park.
The new year saw the strong run of form continue, as the side suffered just one defeat in nine. It was a run characterised by some brilliant goals, such as MJ Tierney's stunning lob in the win over Glebe, and Dave Lewis's 30-yard rocket as Seaford saw off Liffey Wanderers.
The side suffered a rare setback away at St Francis, losing 3-1 against a top-class side, but a comprehensive dismantling of Home Farm in the following match set up Burnsie's boys for an unlikely promotion to the top flight of LSL Saturday.
That would have required four wins from their remaining six matches, but instead the Penguins laid an egg, picking up only two points from their dismal run-in, courtesy of frustrating draws against St Pats CY and St Kevin's Boys, which were sandwiched between defeats home and away against the division's outstanding team, Old County.
The eventual fifth place finish represented an improvement of one spot in the table as against the previous season.
Another LSL campaign draws to a close on Monday evening as the Majors complete their season by hosting runaway champions Old County at Rockfield Park.
The visitors have made light work of LSL Major 1, remaining unbeaten throughout their entire league campaign, a feat which is all the more impressive given their lengthy involvement in domestic, provincial and national cup competitions.
The sides played out an entertaining game in Crumlin only a few weeks ago, as Old County eventually prevailed 3-2, with the Penguins going close to a dramatic late equaliser.
