Vale Wanderers 4 - 1 Bagenalstown AFC

This local derby started at a frantic pace with both teams attacking in numbers. Bagenalstown started on top and had a few half chances but the Vale defence stood firm and kept them out. On the 25 minutes, Town had the ball in the vale net from a free kick from Robbie Kane which found Jimmy Cullen but it was ruled out for a hand ball. Vale had a few chances themselves but their forwards were struggling to hit the target. The home side took the lead with the best phase of the game which started from the goalkeeper and worked their way through the lines before Robert Bulmer unlocked the Bagenalstown defence with a sensational no look reversed ball into the path of Sean Smithers who slotted home. Bagenastown battled back and some great work from Eoghan Dowling and Marty Curran set Craig Fogarty up to squeeze the ball past the advancing Vale keeper. Vale took the lead again just before the half, when Martin Bridgett rose highest to head home a Podge Nolan corner to leave the sides 2-1 at the break.

Vale upped the tempo in the second half and Bagenalstown decided to drop deep and were happy to concede possession to the home side. Vale made the possession count with chance after chance and constant waves of attacks with Bagenalstown looking to counter attack at every opportunity. Vale got their 3rd goal when Jack Treacys free kick was saved by David Miley in the Town goal but James Dowling made no mistake with finishing the rebound. Vales 4th came after good play from Jack Treacy who set up Sean Smithers for his second of the game where it finished 4-1 to the home side

Best for Vale were Sean Smithers, Jason Daly, and Martin Bridgett while Paddy O Brien, Robbie Kane and Dion Wall workied hard for Bagenastown.
