Baltinglass Town 5 - 0 Fortbarrington FC

In this 11 o'clock kick-off, Fortbarrington came out at first whistle all guns blazing, kept possession well and had chances to take the lead but never made the opposition keeper work. Chasing St. Josephs at the top of the table, Baltinglass knew nothing less than 3 points were needed from today's result. From the start of the game, Baltinglass pushed Fortbarrington deep into their own half and, after 20 minutes, won a penalty through Gary Carroll. Carroll stepped up to take the penalty, but the Fortbarrington keeper Jack Brennan made a brilliant save to keep the score level. Baltinglass then scored their first through Gary Carroll when a pass from Mick Dowling found him at the back post, and he tapped home. Baltinglass then got their second goal a few minutes later when a through ball from Chris Sutton found Gary Carroll, and he shot home from the tight angle. Gary Carroll then completed his hat-trick just before halftime when he beat the offside trap and the keeper one-on-one. Halftime, and it was Baltinglass Town 3-0 Fortbarrington FC.

The second half started well with both teams fighting in the midfield battles; again, Fortbarrington had their chances but never took them.

Baltinglass controlled the half and scored their fourth goal when a corner from Chris Sutton found Gary Carroll at the back post to head home. They then got their 5th goal when Mick Dowling beat three opposition players and shot home from a tight angle. The final whistle was heard, and the home side got a truly deserved win. Still, Fortbarrington were unlucky not to take their chances which would have made it a different game altogether.

Final Score - Baltinglass 5 Fortbarrington 0
