Carlow & District Football League
Nationalist Premier Division
Castle Rangers 0
Killeshin gave their Premier Division survival hopes a huge boost after claiming their first win of the season in this battle between the bottom two. The means that although Killeshin still prop up the division they are only two points behind Rangers and St Fiacc’s.
After a slow start Killeshin began to create some openings but Shane Coakley blazed over an inviting goal and Brian Farrell could only find the side netting when well placed. At the other end Peter Fagan was also guilty of squandering a good chance as the teams went into the break goalless.
Rangers upped the tempo on the restart but it was Killeshin that hit the front on the hour mark, substitute Glen Ryan making his mark on the game when he beat his marker before crossing for Michael McCartney to score. Danny O’Boyle missed a good chance to level matters when his shot was blocked by a last ditch tackle before Ryan made his second major impact on the game, this time the substitute collected the ball from Niall O’Rourke before turning the last defender and firing low to the net for 2-0. Castle poured men forward in a desperate attempt to salvage something from the game but Killeshin caught them on the break when Barry Ryan broke down the left found Shane Coakley whose perfect cross was met by the head of Arnie Mahon for 3-0 and the visitors’ first win of the season was secure.
Best for Killeshin were Brian Lawlor, Enda O’Rourke and Barry Ryan while Castle’s best included Joe Lee, Paddy O’Brien and Richie Mahon.
LFA Junior Cup
St Patrick’s Boys 3
Carndonagh FC 2
St Pat’s booked their place in the LFA Cup third round as they dispatched AUL side Carndonagh with relative ease despite the narrow win margin.
The hosts started well and were a goal to the good after just nine minutes, Tobi Jimoh setting Conor Clack through on goal, Clack’s neat finish putting his side ahead. Carndonagh settled and grew in confidence but despite good spells of possession they rarely threatened the Boys goal and it remained 1-0 into the break.
The Dublin side pressed hard on the restart and were level on 50 minutes after Pat’s failed to clear a free kick. Parity lasted barely five minutes however as the home side regained the lead when Cathal Ryan headed home Clack’s corner for 2-1. Will Kinsella and Liam Byrne were dictating the game in midfield for the hosts and Pat’s increased their lead on 80 minutes, this time the visitors made a mess of clearing their lines and Clack pounced on the loose ball for his second and Pat’s third. A late reply from the visitors came too late to alter the outcome and the Graiguecullen side advanced thanks to the efforts of Conor Clack, Jamie Moran and Josh Moore.
KCLR 30th Anniversary Cup
Kilree Celtic 2
Palatine Celtic 3
A strong wind blowing down the pitch made for difficult conditions in Bagenalstown.
With first use of the conditions Pal pinned Kilree into their own half in the opening stages and after failing to score some glorious opportunities they took the lead on 29 minutes with a Jason Kane goal. Just before half-time they doubled their lead when Billy McDonald with a brilliant turn and strike put them two goals up at half-time.
Kilree with the elements in their favour opened the second half brightly and Mark McDonald smacked a shot off the visitors’ woodwork before PJ O’Rourke reduced arrears. Palatine lifted the siege and a flowing move was finished by Chris Parle with a brilliant strike to the net. PJ O’Rourke set up a frantic finish when he made it 2-3 on 80 minutes with his second goal of the game. Both sides came close to adding to their tally of goals before the end, but it was Pal who held on to advance to the next round.
Craig Kearney, Chris Parle, Ken and Dermot McDonald stood out for Pal. With Nathan Byrne, Mark McDonald and PJ O’Rourke best for Kilree.
St Fiacc’s 0
Hanover Harps 5
Hanover advanced to the quarter finals as St Fiacc’s recent good run came to an end. Harps were on top from the off but were thankful to Jamie Hennessey for keeping the game scoreless when he made a smart save from Denis Nolan on 15 minutes. Harps eventually turned possession into goals when Paul Core latched onto Graham Delaney’s pass and lobbed the ‘keeper to put the visitors ahead on 25 minutes. Five minutes later it was 2-0 when Mark Davis benefitted from another Delaney pass to score. Fiacc’s were struggling to contain the Harps front men and Delaney struck a post after Alan Shaw’s quick throw caught the Saints backline napping but with five minutes left to half time Delaney and Hanover struck for the third, Mark Davis with the assist.
Harps started the second half as they finished the first and the fourth goal duly arrived on the hour mark when Delaney set up Davis to slot home. Delaney grabbed his second and Hanover’s fifth when he reacted quickest to a loose ball in the penalty area on 70 minutes. The Saints never gave up the chase and Hennessy had to produce two fine saves to deny Denis Nolan and Bobby Dowling to earn his clean sheet.
Best for Hanover were Alan Shaw, Kevin Power, Phil Neenan and Simon O’Shea.
Parkville United 6
Hacketstown United 1
Parkville came out on top in this local derby at Hawkins Lane on Sunday.
The home side started the game slowly and were wasteful with their opening two chances, one falling to Nicky Nolan and the second to Michael Byrne. They were made pay for their poor conversions when Hacketstown took the lead after 20 minutes when Chris Murray scored. The Tullow side began to dominate and equalised on 30 minutes when a Robbie Byrne corner was headed home by Robbie Sheridan. Parkville’s lead was under threat straight away and Jason Murphy made a brilliant save to keep the game level. Moments later Ronan Byrne and Joe Sunderland combined down the right and the latter squared the ball back to Nicky Nolan who made no mistake from 10 yards out. Five minutes before the break and it was 3-1, Jamie Walsh combined with Sunderland and Byrne back to Nolan who scored a carbon copy of his first goal.
Ten minutes after the restart Parkville were awarded a penalty which Nick Nolan scored to complete his hat trick. Conor McCarney was sprung from the Parkville bench after 65 minutes and his impact had immediate effect scoring after some great work by Thomas Byrne and Donal Smithers. The winners scored again when Robbie Byrne scored a magnificent free kick from a tight angle in the dying moments.
Best for the winners were Joe Sunderland, Jamie Walsh and Nick Nolan while for Hacketstown Con Murphy, Colm O’Connor and Niall Humpries stood out.
White’s Pharmacy Division 2
St. Anne’s 0
Slaney Rovers 1
Rovers moved ever closer to the leaders in Division 2 following this single goal victory in Ballylinan.
After a hesitant start the home side started to dictate the game, dominating possession without creating anything worthwhile in front of goal. Rovers began to get a grip on proceedings as the half progressed, but they were also lack lustre in front of goal and the half ended scoreless.
Just before half-time Anne’s had a player dismissed and had to play the second half with ten men. Slaney piled on the pressure in the third quarter, but Anne’s defence absorbed the pressure and were dangerous on the break. J Mahon forced the Rovers keeper Fergus Harmon into a couple of fine saves. The all-important goal came on 80 minutes when Eoin Curran finished hard and low to the Saints net after his first effort was blocked by a defender. The Saints threw everything at the Rovers goal for the concluding minutes but to no avail as the Rathvilly side went home with the points.
Stefan Dunne, Mark Ryan and Michael Foley were outstanding for Rovers while it was a brave team show from the Saints.
Nurney Villa 3
A closely fought tie just went the way of the visitors.
Villa got off to the perfect start when Shane Hickey was brought down in the area by the Killeshin keeper and John Stringer put away the penalty kick after four minutes. Killeshin responded well and Anthony Mannion was just off target with a shot on goal as they pressed hard. Nurney however missed a few good chances to increase their lead before a fine move from Killeshin was finished by Azzedine Ahmed to the Villa net 39 minutes. However the home side conceded a second goal just before half-time when a long goal kick from David Fisher evaded the Killeshin defence and Adam Kehoe slid the ball home for a 1-2 half-time lead.
The second half was end to end with chances at both ends, but late on as Killeshin pushed forward looking for an equaliser they were caught on the counter attack and Anthony Hogan was brought down as he raced into the area and this time Shane Hickey stepped up to convert from the penalty spot and close the scoring on 87 minutes.
For Nurney Eamonn Dowling, John Stringer, Anthony Hogan and Eoin Doyle showed up well. Jody Hennessy, Danny Brennan and Azzedine Ahmed were best for Killeshin.
New Oak Boys 4
Slaney Rovers 0
New Oak had a comfortable victory at home on Sunday as they eased to the top of Division 3.
The home side dominated possession in the first half but had only a goal from John Nangle a free header on eight minutes to show for their efforts at half-time as Rovers despite their early lapse coped well.
After a slow opening to the second half Boys sprang into action and a John Nangle bicycle kick was handled on the goal line by a Rovers defender who was red carded and Nangle put away the penalty kick. After great approach work from Ba Byrne and Graham Kelly, Nangle completed his hat trick soon after with a perfect shot to the bottom corner of the Rovers net. On 80 minutes just seconds after being introduced sub Kevin Feeney got on the end of good work from Sean Hayden and John Nangle to score goal number four and completed a comfortable win.
Stephen McGrath, Michael Byrne, Graham Kelly and John Nangle stood out for New Oak. While Evan Byrne, Adam Lawlor and Jeff Worth worked hard for Rovers.
Women’s Senior League
Mill Celtic 0
Parkville United 3
Strong winds blowing from goal to goal played a huge role in today’s game. Parkville took control of the game from the start and held possession for much of the first half in and around the Mill half. Samantha Keatley in goal for Mill was called into action on several occasions. Celine Slye capitalised from the mounting pressure for the away side just before halftime. Parkville continued the pressure into the second half bringing Keatley into action again to keep the scoresheet at 1-0. With 20 minutes to go, Lauren McGrath made it 2-0 for the visitors with a low drive to the left of the Mill keeper. The home side upped their game after the tip off but never really looked like scoring. With just a few minutes before the final whistle Jenny Donnelly made it three for the away side.
Best for Mill were Pam Grufferty, Helen Mackey and Samantha Keatley. Best for Parkville were Celine Slye Lauren McGrath and Jenny Donnelly.
Ballymurphy Celtic 10
Village FC 1
Ballymurphy Celtic dominated this game throughout to gain all three points. The home side made a good start with Aoife Barcoe scoring in the opening minutes. Village FC fought back but Emma Cooper of Ballymurphy scored twice again in quick succession. Lucy Mahon grabbed a fourth just before half time.
The visitors came out in the second half fired up but Ballymurphy proved too strong with two goals from Maria Doyle and another from Ann Murphy. There were some great saves from Christine Thompson of Village and their efforts paid off with a goal in the final 10 minutes. Ballymurphy continued to keep the pressure on with a goal from almost half way from Susan Kelly and a final score from Michelle Kelly.
Best for Village were Aisling Brennan, Christine Thompson and Carmel Walsh. A great team effort from Ballymurphy Celtic.
Kilree Celtic 2
Nurney Villa 0
This was a great display by both teams with Kilree Celtic proving too strong and scoring twice in the first half. The first goal was scored by Ellen Condron and came from a somewhat controversial penalty. The home side continued to dominate and scored again ten minutes later through Catriona Curtis who beat the off side and finished by chipping the keeper.
Nurney dominated the second half and were unlucky not to convert a number of chances. Lisa Abbey and Philomena Fennelly dominated the midfield for exchanges. The visitors were denied two penalty decisions for handballs during the match which may have changed the game.
Best for Nurney Villa were Nicola Maher, Lisa Abbey and substitute Hazel Dowling. Kilree best were scorers Catriona Curtis, Ellen Condron and Angela O’Rourke.
Slaney Rovers 4
St Joseph’s 2
The game started brightly and Slaney could have been one up after 30 seconds after great work from Sinead Morris saw Edel O’Brien volley wide from close range. St Joseph’s took the lead after 20 minutes when Katie Bullen raced clear and scored with a superb finish from the edge of the box. The home side levelled when Edel O’Brien race through and finished from an impossible angle to the bottom corner. The visitors again took the lead on 38 minutes through Emma O’Regan. Slaney lost their goalkeeper in a tackle that lead to the goal. Trish Keogh stepped in for the remainder of the game. Slaney levelled on 40 minutes through Mary Cunningham with a stunning shot from 40 yards.
The second half was all Slaney Rovers as they took control against an injury depleted St Joseph’s. Slaney eventually took the lead on 65 minutes when Mary Cunningham slipped a free kick down the line to Sinead Morris who cut in from the left and took on three players before blasting to the top corner. Slaney sub Carole McGrath notched up her fifth of the season when she volleyed home from 25 yards after a great ball over the top from Catherine Donovan.
Best for Slaney were Mary Cunningham, Catherine Donovan, Sinead Morris and Edel O’Brien. Best for St Joseph’s were Aislinn Whelan, Katie Bullen and Casey Walsh.
SuperValu Youths Division
St Patrick’s Boys 4
Palatine Celtic 1
The away team may have started the brighter of the two sides with Jack Finn and Conor McDonald looking dangerous in attack but it was St Pat’s who opened the scoring in Graiguecullen on Saturday.
Luke Fitzpatrick broke the deadlock after 12 minutes with a good strike from the edge of the box after good pressing from the home side to win the ball back. Pal tried to press for the equaliser but failed to make possession count and the home side doubled their lead on 37 minutes when Fitzpatrick volleyed into the top corner, again from distance. Craig Walker made it 3-0 just before the break when he volleyed home into the bottom hand corner from Brian Malone’s cross to make the half time score 3-0.
The home side didn’t ease off in the second half and the game was out of sight on 52 minutes when Craig Walker held off the Pal defenders to slide a through ball into the path of Brian Malone who calmly slotted home. As the final whistle approached, Celtic got their consolation goal. The away ‘keeper launched a ball to Darragh Fitzpatrick who finished well to make the final score 4-1 with Pat’s finishing proving too much for the away side.
Best for Celtic Andrew Bevins, Jack Finn and Dillon Cotter while Craig Walker Luke Fitzpatrick and Harry Taylor impressed for the home side.
Nurney Villa 6
St Fiacc’s 2
Fiacc’s started the game brightly and took the lead on 15 minutes but it didn’t last too long. Jake O’Hara equalised with a tidy finish before Michael Murphy converted two penalties in quick succession to give Nurney the lead at the break with a score line of 3-1.
Fiacc’s settled into the second half well with some slick passing and good team work shown. They were unfortunate to lose two players within four minutes shortly after the restart and Nurney capitalised. Christian O’Riordan finished well on 55 minutes and fired another home just ten minutes later to heap further misery on the Fiacc’s boys. With full time fast approaching, O’Hara slotted home for his brace before Fiacc’s launched a counter attack to score a second goal of their own and the game ended 6-2.
Best for Nurney were Michael Murphy, Jack Rowan and Scott Wilson.
Parkville United 6
St Anne’s 1.
It was Parkville who claimed the points in emphatic style after an entertaining clash with St Anne’s in Hawkins Lane.
Despite the score line of 6-1, the home side didn’t have it all their own way with the score just 1-0 to Park at the break. However, Parkville started the game on the front foot and could have easily taken the lead in the first 20 minutes. A combination of stubborn defending and near misses saw Parkville have to wait for their first goal with Ross Hanley threatening the away goal three Tomes during the opening exchanges but failing to convert. However, after some slick footwork from Ryan Clarke, the midfielder slid an inch perfect pass through the defence for Hanley to latch onto and fire into the bottom corner to finally open the scoring. The home side pressed hard for their second with Hanley striking the bar twice in quick succession and a Jack Simpson strike producing a fantastic save from ‘keeper Tyrone Dempsey who was defiant in goal to keep his side in the game. The score at half time, just 1-0 to the home side.
The second half began with the same blueprint: Parkville attacking with skill and flair while St Anne’s remained stubborn in defence with Dempsey again making some top notch saves to defy the home side’s strikers. Hanley again struck the woodwork twice and St Anne’s managed to launch a dangerous counter attack, cutting the Park defence open only for ‘keeper Alan Maher to produce a tremendous save to keep his side in the lead. This was the wake-up call Parkville needed and as they launched attack after attack, the away side were unable to hold out and Hanley finally got his second with some help from Simpson. Despite Park’s dominance on the ball, St Anne’s managed to launch an attack at pace as the game approached 75 minutes. Fionn O’Rourke picked up the ball and tucked it away with a neat finish. This again proved a catalyst for the home side in attack. With Simpson and Clarke pulling the strings, the home side began to pull away. First, Tom Piggott skipped past a challenge inside the area and rifled his shot home to give his team some breathing space. Hanley completed his hat trick on 80 minutes with neat finish after great work from John Byrne and Eoin Brennan completed the scoring on 85 minutes after the ball was spilled to the edge of the box, he fired a thunderous effort into the bottom corner. There was still time for the home side to create one more chance and it fell to who else but Hanley. From St Anne’s tip off, he stole the ball, glided past four opposing players with relative ease and struck the ball well only to see it cannon off the woodwork yet again and the game ended 6-1.
Best for Parkville Tom Pollard Jack Simpson and Sam Meaney while Tyrone Dempsey had a stellar performance in the away goal.
