FAI JUNIOR CUP
Crettyard United 2
North End United 2 aet
(Crettyard advance 6-5 on penalties)
Crettyard advance to round five after a rip-roaring tie on Sunday afternoon.
Jeff Moran’s two saves in the sudden death shoot out proving the difference between the sides. The home side started well but found it hard to create any real chances. With the game starting to pick up in intensity both sides were in top shape defensively with Craig Comerford and Seamus Dowling Crettyard’s best players early on.
The second half saw most of the real action with both teams scoring twice. Crettyard hit the front when Cristoir Maher scored with the deftest of touches on 64 minutes to put his side ahead after a great Sean O’Shea pass. The Wexford kingpins hit back to level matters but the reaction of the hosts at this set back was superb and a low drive from Lee Salter looked to have won the day but at the death North End struck again to take the game to extra time. The additional time failed to produce a goal, the stalemate was maintained after a super save from the North End keeper to deny Salter the winner. With bodies being put on the line the Crettyard defence held firm with Terry Haughney clearing ball after ball along with Jason Enright so it would be penalties to sort it.
A couple of magnificent saves from Jeff Moran saw his side advance on a super day from all in Crettyard colours.
Deen Celtic 4
New Oak Boys 3
New Oak suffered their first loss of the season in all competitions as they went down to a last-minute goal in Castlecomer in this cup tie.
Six of the seven goals in this game came in the second half as both teams struggled to find their range in the final third, the opening goal coming for the home team on the stroke of half time.
New Oak started the second half on the front foot and were level within five minutes of the restart, Padraig Murphy setting up Brian Coogan to score. Parity lasted only a matter of minutes as Deen Celtic hit the front again. As the game swung from end to end New Oak levelled again on the hour mark, David O’Shea finding the net after good work from Lee Walker for 2-2. Celtic hit the front for a third time on 67 minutes but New Oak levelled for a third time from the penalty spot 12 minutes from time, Daryl Coleman was fouled in the box and Dean Kelly converted to make it 3-3. It appeared extra time would be required to decide a winner but Celtic struck with the last play of the game for the decisive seventh goal and there was no time for another leveller for the Boys despite the best efforts of Brian Coogan, Cian Dowling and Bobby Dowling.
Nationalist Premier Division
Parkville United 2
Celtic Stars 3
Mark Egan’s first half hat trick ensured Parkville United’s miserable run of league results continued this weekend, as they lost at home to Celtic stars.
The three times former champions finding themselves in the very unfamiliar surroundings of the relegation zone as the season nears the half way stage. All the goals in this game came in a frantic 20-minute spell before half time as both teams attacked at every opportunity. Stars hit the front midway through the half, Larry Keating played in Mark Egan to slot home but ten minutes later United were level, Aaron Morris and Mitch Kelly combined well in midfield and it was Kelly who saw his long-range effort beat the keeper for a fine equaliser. Stars hit back within minutes, great work by Dean Grandy on the right again found Egan to make it 2-1, and after a foul on Sean Carroll on the edge of the areal Egan put an exquisite shot into the corner to make it 3-1. Five minutes before the break it was 3-2, Rory O Connor broke down the right and his pass set Ronan Byrne away, he outpaced a defender and crossed to Hanley, Hanley’s effort was saved but Mitch Kelly was quickest to react and rounded the keeper for his and United’s second.
The second half saw Parkville dominating possession, territory and chances but they couldn’t trouble the score board as Stars defended deep. Chances came and went for Kelly, Morris and Eoin Brennan before the hour mark but to no avail. A combination of solid defending and fine goalkeeping kept out Luke Coleman and Kelly late on but United eventually ran out of ideas and time as Stars claimed the points that see them sitting comfortable in mid table in their debut season in the top flight.
Best for the home side were Mitch Kelly, Paul Earle and Arron Morris but in the end a great win for the Stars with hat-trick hero Mark Egan, Peter Ryan and Richard Sinnott excelling.
Herald Striker Division One
Vale Wanderers 1
Ballymurphy Celtic 4
The Bally Boys exacted revenge for last week’s cup defeat with an emphatic victory in Leighlinbridge.
The visitors were soon on their way with a headed goal from Kevin Foley and doubled their lead when Thomas Doyle got on the end of a James Kelly ball and beat three defenders before planting the ball in the net. With no further first half goals the sides retired at the break 0-2 to Celtic.
It was soon 0-3 when Kevin Foley flicked home a Ger O’Brien corner kick. Vale were given renewed hope when Josh Doyle scored with a header, but the game was up when Kevin Foley completed his hat trick ten minutes from the end.
Palatine Celtic 1
Hanover Harps 3
Hanover had a good win at the VEC grounds on Sunday over a game Pal side.
The visitors took an early lead when John Waters headed home an Alan Shaw cross after nine minutes. Ten minutes later and the sides were level when Gary Murphy scored with a great strike from outside the box. A header from Derek Hayden put Hanover ahead on 32 minutes a lead they held at half time.
Early in the second half Hanover were awarded a penalty but Eric Robinsons kick was kept out by Colin Heneghan. Encouraged by this turn of events Pal rallied but they were set back on their heels when Alan Shaw found the net for Hanover with a rare right footed shot. Celtic tried hard to get back in the game but their last chance came and went when Mark Corcoran in the Hanover goal saved a spot kick from Lorcan Carroll.
Impressive for Hanover were Eric Dowling, Alan Shaw and Liam Kearney and Paul Clancy, for Pal Sean Brennan, Lorcan Carroll and Dillon Cotter excellent.
Hacketstown United 4
Crettyard United 0
League leaders Hacketstown had it all too easy at home on Sunday.
Niall Humpries put them on their way with a goal on 17 minutes. David Mulvaney added goal number two just before the break as his side took control of the game.
Jamie Walsh increased the lead after 57 minutes and the home side were well on top. Walsh them struck the post for Hacketstown with the Cretty keeper well beaten and Niall Humpries also tested the woodwork before Colm O Connor wrapped up the scoring with a fine header on 82 minutes.
It was a fine team performance from Hacketstown to see off a well beaten Crettyard.
Med Bar Cup
Nurney Villa 2
New Oak Boys 1
A gutsy display from Nurney was enough to see them into round two of the Med Bar Cup.
The town side started well and the Villa goal led a charmed life early on, but the home sides battled through despite falling a goal behind on 26 minute when Chris Kearney could only parry a free kick to a New Oak player who returned it to the net. Glenn Ryan with a towering header from a Pat Hughes cross brought Nurney back into the game on 40 minutes.
The home side never looked back after this and proceeded to dominate the second half. Glenn Ryan and Philip Murphy missed sitters for the home side before Aiden Lillis turned in a Thomas Murphy corner on 64 minute for a well-deserved lead. Nurney never looked in any trouble after this and could have added another couple of goals before the end.
Joe Byrne, Adrian Dermody, Keith Lillis and Pat Hughes performed well for Nurney.
Burger King Carlow Division Three
Hanover Harps 3
St Fiacc’s 4
The top two in Division Three clashed at the plots on Sunday and it was second placed Fiacc’s who came out on top.
Hanover started well but were denied by good defending from Matty Doogue and Dennis Hand, and then against the run of play Doogue gave Fiacc’s the lead with a header. Fiacc’s were then to race into a 0-3 lead with goals from Luke and Danny Alysbury against a shell-shocked Hanover. Credit to the home team they fought back and goals from Dylan Walsh and Dillon Murphy had the minimum between the home sides at the break.
The goals continued to come in the second half and Hanover got back on level terms when Dylan Walsh set up Dillon Murphy to fire home and the game was in the melting pot. The winner came when sub Pedro Drea freed Will Hayes on the wing and he crossed for Luke Alysbury to head home the clincher.
For Fiacc’s Danny Brennan, Danny Alysbury, and Luke Alysbury shone, it was a brave team effort from Hanover.
Vale Wanderers 1
Wolfhill Athletic 0
A lone first half strike proved the match winner in this tie.
Wolfhill looked good early on and Billy Campion worked the Vale keeper on a few occasions, but against the run of play Vale were to go ahead when David Cox placed Craig Hickey in the box and he turned to beat the Wolfhill keeper for the lead goal. Bernard Wheatley should have levelled for the visitors but his shot from close range was clawed out by the Vale keeper.
The second half saw Wolfhill try hard to get back in the contest, But Vale defended well and Billy Campion was denied on a few occasions as the home side held on for their win.
Pat Meaney, David Cox and Craig Hickey excellent for Vale with Jim Leech, Garry Rowan and Billy Campion playing well for Wolfhill.
Celtic Stars 4
A Josh Byrne hat trick helped Stars to victory in Killeshin.
Byrne put the visitors into the minute lead on 17 minutes before Glen Ryan scored an equaliser for Killeshin after 26 minutes. Just before half time Brian Hancock was through one on one with the Killeshin keeper but the goalie brought off an excellent stop.
The visitors were to go 1-3 by the hour with a brace of goals from Josh Byrne, but Killeshin stayed in the contest with a second goal, however the game was safe when Brian Hancock made it 2-4 on 82 minutes to wrap up the points.
Pauric Hickey, Ian St Ledger and Josh Byrne stood out for Stars, with Aaron Dempsey and Jody Hennessey best for Killeshin.
White’s Pharmacy Division Two
Parkville United 1
Kilree Celtic 2
Kilree came on top after the hard-fought encounter in Hawkins Lane on Sunday.
Parkville started slowly and were behind after 15 minutes through a disputed penalty. David McDonald was fouled in the area and he picked himself up and slotted home the spot kick despite the best efforts of Alan Maher in goal. Ope Bolarin and Niall Byrne were causing problems for Kilree and Byrne went close on 27 minutes. The Tullow side equalised on 39 minutes when Matt Decaux burst out from centre back and went on a marauding run down the left before he crossed for Niall Byrne to convert.
The second half saw Parkville create numerous chances. Ned Pender went close on 63 minutes after a fine run down the left. Ope Bolarin was causing Kilree plenty of trouble and almost converted a fine cross but saw his effort go agonisingly over the bar on 79 minutes. At the other end Alan Maher pulled off several saves to keep his side in the game. However, he could do little when David McDonald found his brother Mark with a great cross and he duly finished to the bottom corner of the winner.
Outstanding for Kilree were Eamon Nolan, Mark McDonald and Micko Salter while best for Parkville were Stephen Hogan, Matt Decaux, Niall Byrne and Ope Bolarin.
St. Anne’s 4
Village FC 1
The Saints came out on top in this entertaining game in Ballylinan on Sunday.
The home side got off to a flying start and Jack Hickey put them ahead as early as the second minute. The continued to dominate and were 2-0 up on six minutes when Brian Quinlan set a free kick to the net. The visitors came to grips with these early setbacks but failed to break down a resolute Saints defence. They were dealt another cruel blow when going to 3-0 down on 32 minutes with a long-range effort from Gary Walsh.
During the second half both sides seemed to cancel each other out. However Jack Hickey scored his second on 65 minutes before Village scored a consolation goal on 78 minutes.
St Anne’s man of the match was Robert Donaher.
Mill Celtic 4
Burrin Celtic 0
Mill secured the points in this battle of the Celtics in Ballytore on Sunday.
The visitors started brightly and Mikey Barcoe should have put Burrin ahead but missed the target. The home side opened the scoring after 20 minutes when Andy Horan turned home Eric Mackey’s cross. Mill continued to dominate the remainder of the half but could not break through.
The Ballon side started the second half well but still failed to find their range. At the other end Jason McHugh was fouled in the penalty area but Eric Mackey was denied by a brilliant save by Craig Doyle. However, McHugh made it 2-0 when he rounded the keeper and Eric Mackey made amends for his penalty miss when he scored Mill’s third on 75 minutes. Jason McHugh completed the scoring with a fine strike on his left foot.
Best for Mill were Gary Lambe, Brian Mackey and Jason McHugh. Burrin’s man of the match was Craig Doyle.
SuperValu U18’s Division
Killeshin FC 1
St Patrick’s Boys 4
Played in summer-like conditions this was a tough match for these two local rivals and it was St Pat’s who started the better and they fashioned several chances but just couldn’t finish any of them.
Some sloppy play on 35 minutes allowed Killeshin in and they went 1-0 up, following a good finish by Richard Dwyer and they took this lead into the interval.
The second-half saw St Pat’s ‘up the tempo’ and they began to work their way back into the game and were dominating in mid-field, as Killeshin hardly got a look in. St Pat’s equalised when a long-range shot from Andrew Kehoe, found the corner of the net 1-1 and all to play for. Great mid-field play by Andrew Kehoe, Andrew Lewis, Jamie Lunney and Thomas Sheehan, put through striker Lord Afrifa through on goal, on three separate occasions, and he finished brilliantly, on 60, 63 and 75 minutes, to grab himself a hat-trick and a resounding 1-4 victory for St Pat’s, as they close the gap on leaders Vale Wanderers.
Best for Killeshin were Colm Fitzgerald, Steven Moran and Ger Kelly, whilst outstanding for St Pat’s were Jamie Coogan, Andrew Kehoe, Jamie Lunney and ‘hat-trick hero’ Lord Afrifa.
Nurney Villa AFC 6
St Fiacc’s FC 4
This was a 10-goal thriller, but it took all of 25 minutes before the first goal came and it went to the home team, as a great run by up the wing by Adam Kehoe and a perfect cross, found Sean Smithers who set up Padraig Hynes and he made no mistake to give Nurney a deserved 1-0 lead.
However, St Fiacc’s fought back and they equalised on 40 minutes for 1-1, however, Nurney attacked and pressurised the St Fiacc’s defence and on 43 minutes, Sean Smithers, who was having a fine game, put Cormac Lomax clear and he finished well for a 2-1 interval lead.
St Fiacc’s were quick out of the blocks in the second-half and they equalised, just after the interval, when a long, high ball was headed in by a Nurney defender for 2-2.
It was end to end stuff, although Nurney’s Padraig Hynes was unlucky when a fine header, went just wide on 50 minutes. On 58 minutes, a Nurney free-kick found the head of Michael Murphy and he finished emphatically for 3-2 and on 65 minutes, Cormac Lomax added his second and Nurney’s fourth and what appeared to be a comfortable two goal cushion. Nurney looked comfortable, but they sat back and St Fiacc’s pulled a goal back for 4-3 and then on 80 minutes equalised for 4-4 and at this stage St Fiacc’s were in the ascendency, but Nurney ‘pulled their socks’ and again pressurised the St Fiacc’s defence. Sean Taylor put Sean Smithers through, one on one with the St Fiacc’s keeper and he made no mistake, to send Nurney back into the lead at 5-4 and almost immediately, Smithers had a shot that brought a fine save from the keeper, as he turned it away for a corner. Aidan Lillis’s corner-kick found Adam Kehoe, who blasted home for a final score of 6-4 and a deserved win, in the end, for Nurney.
Standing out for Nurney were Cormac Lomax, Sean Smithers and Adam Kehoe, whilst it was an overall, battling performance from St Fiacc’s.
Parkville United 6
The gulf in class between these two teams was palpable straight from the start, as Griffen Kennedy broke down the right wing and crossed to TJ Kavanagh, who headed narrowly wide.
On five minutes, Parkville’s Alan Maher’s fine pass found Ross Hanley who raced clear of the Burrin defence and slotted home neatly from an acute angle for 1-0. Ross Hanley went on to double his tally on 13 minutes when a cross-field pass from Bob Gahan, enabled him to finish well again, from a tight angle for 2-0. On 30 minutes, a run and pin-point cross by Jamie Farrell found Griffen Kennedy’s head and he made no mistake for a 3-0 lead. Just before the interval, Shane Smith found Jamie Farrell and he cut inside, beat two Burrin defenders and placed the ball into the far corner of the net, for a fine solo goal and they took this 4-0 lead, to the interval.
Burrin started well in the second-half, with Liam McGuill heading just wide and then it was back to Parkville’s normal service being resumed, as after ringing the changes and changing their tactics to concentrate on possession, they went further ahead at 5-0, as TJ Kavanagh smashed home from 25 yards, following an assist by Sam Shepherd. On 70 minutes, it went to 6-0 as Shane Smith followed up a rebounded shot by Cormac Flynn to fire home with aplomb. In the dying minutes, Burrin scored with a fine header by Liam McGuill, following a great passing move, but that was only a consolation goal, as Parkville continue their inexorable rise to the top of the table with this 6-1 victory.
Best for Parkville were Sean Darcy, Bob Gahan and Ryan Clarke, whilst for Burrin, who never gave up, it was Darragh Quinn, Nick Mullins and Cathal Murray.
Vale Wanderers 2
New Oak Boys 2
Vale started well and had two quick chances in the first five minutes, through Eoin Johnson and Keegan Bradley, but they were both thwarted by Joe Byrne New Oak’s keeper, who was in great form.
New Oak started to get a grip on the game and they were dominating possession and Vale just couldn’t get a look in, but chances were few and far between and then on 30 minutes, against the ‘run of play’ Vale went ahead when Keegan Bradley nodded home a Darren O’Keefe free-kick to take a 1-0 lead. New Oak continued to dominate and on 40 minutes they equalised through Jake Nolan, as he took advantage of a mistake by the Vale keeper to tap home and it was 1-1 at the interval.
New Oak started the brighter in the second-half and were on top but on 60 minutes they were reduced to 10 men when one of their players received a straight red card and they were then forced to play on the counter. Vale took advantage of their extra man and began to press and they made several chances. Joe Byrne was a match for the Vale attackers as he pulled off a series of fine saves to keep them out. With only ten minutes to go, some good work by Kevin Komani set up Jamie Doorley and he finished easily to put New Oak 1-2 up. Vale continued to press and on the stroke of full time a Liam Ryan cross to the back post found Jack Malone and he coolly headed home the equaliser for a final score of 2-2 and a share of the points.
Best for Vale were Eoin Johnson, Ronan McAllister and Philly Hegarty and standing out for New Oak were man of the match Joe Byrne, Cian Cleary and Jake Nolan.
Women’s Division One
Crettyard United 0
In this top of the table clash, it was Newpark who came away with the win over Crettyard United in Kilkenny to keep them in the hunt for the league this year.
As with most of these types of clashes, it was a competitive game in the opening period with no real chances of note in a half that saw both sides play well in the defensive side of the game. Newpark came out more likely to break the deadlock and nearly had the lead with a couple of chances for Jemma Costigan. Her first chance came early in the half when her shot was not too far off the mark. Costigan’s second chance saw her get on the end of a cross from Demi Donovan and she couldn’t make the most of her opportunity, despite being unmarked in the penalty area.
It was Donovan who eventually broke the deadlock for her side when she pounced on a loose ball in the visitors’ penalty area and stuck it in. Both sides pushed on but they couldn’t make the most of the chances when they presented themselves in this highly entertaining match.
It was a great team performance from Newpark while Sarah Purcell, Patrice Whelan and Chloe Ryan stood out for Crettyard in what was a losing effort.
Parkville United 6
Vale Wanderers 1
It was a convincing win for Parkville United in Hawkins Lane against a determined Vale Wanderers side.
Parkville made the most of their two-player advantage with Vale having only nine players available for this game and took control early and never relinquished their grasp on the game. Leanne O’Reilly with a hat-trick and Elaine Kavanagh scored for the Tullow side in the first half.
Vale got a consolation goal in the second half when Michelle Dermody, who had been the most threatening for the understrength visitors, smashed a low shot from outside the penalty area into the bottom corner of the net. Shortly after Parkville’s Celine Slye and Katie Brennan scored two more goals before the end.
Best for the winners were O’Reilly, Sara Hobson and Katie Brennan. Best for Vale were Aoife Dunne, Michelle Dermody and Nicole Hanley.
Women’s Division Two
St. Fiacc’s 4
Nurney Villa 1
St. Fiacc’s are on top of the table in the Women’s Division Two after beating Nurney Villa in the Presentation College, Carlow.
The home side started the better of the two sides and took the lead early on when Aoife Nolan drove the ball past the keeper. Courtney Forbes made it 2-0 in a period that Fiacc’s were showing their worth as a top team in this division. Izzy Humphreys made it 3-0 just before the half-hour mark. St. Fiacc’s were really on a head of steam now and Aoife Nolan managed to dribble past the Nurney backline and score her second and Fiaccs’ fourth of the game with a fine individual effort. Not many people who were watching the first half would disagree with the score line as St. Fiacc’s were much the better of the two teams.
Nurney came out better in the second half and it lead to a much more competitive fare. St. Fiacc’s were still getting the better of the chances early in the second half but the defence for Nurney was holding out well. Nurney were creating chances too with Shauna Kavanagh and Ellen Murphy coming closest. Margaret Murphy played the ball through to Ellen Murphy who made no mistake in coolly putting the ball past the goalkeeper for a consolation goal.
Best for Fiacc’s were Rachel Stanley and Lisa Dooley while the best for Nurney were Nicola Maher, Maeve Lawless and Mairead Normanly.
Slaney Rovers 2
Mill Celtic 2
Laura Fennin’s strike just before the full-time whistle secured a point for Mill Celtic in this Women’s Division Two game against Slaney Rovers in Rathvilly.
The Ballitore side took the lead early in the game thanks to Joanne Cullen and in a half of few chances, Mill kept a hold of the one goal lead until half-time. What the first half lacked in chances, the second half sure didn’t as the visitors looked close to adding to their lead but the shot hit the post. Slaney broke down the other end and Andrea O’Brien played in Eireann Maules to equalise for the home side on the hour mark. Slaney looked to wrap up the game ten minutes from time when Maules was brought down in the penalty area. The referee awarded the penalty and Emma Murphy stepped up to stick it past the keeper.
There was one last twist in this tale as the clock ticked towards full-time and Fennin came up with the strike to get the point for Mill as they look to challenge St. Fiacc’s for the Division Two title. Best for Slaney were Leona Leonard, Edel O Brien and Laura Kavanagh while best for Mill were Joanne Cullen, Katie O’Carroll, Muireann Fagan and Natasha Tannion.
Kilree Celtic 5
St. Joseph’s 2
It was Kilree Celtic who took the three points in this clash with St. Joseph’s in Bagenalstown.
It was the visitors who took the lead when Emma O’Regan scored from the penalty spot after Aisling Kelly had been impeded in the penalty area. Kilree equalised with a well taken free kick and scored a second shortly after following a goalmouth scramble. The Tinryland side had the chance to equalise when they were awarded a second penalty but the ball came back off the post and was cleared. Kilree went into half-time leading 2-1.
The Joeys were given their third penalty of the game and Emma O’Regan made no mistake this time when she scored. This was as good as it got for the visitors as Kilree took over.
The Bagenalstown side scored three goals to make it 5-2. The best for St. Joseph’s were Aisling Kelly, Casey Walsh and Katie Bullen.
