Slaney Rovers B v New Oak Boys B
Div Two 09/01 14:00
Slaney Rovers B 3 - 8 New Oak Boys B

For Slaney, the first half's best chance fell to Jake Elliot. However, his long-range effort rebounded to safety off the crossbar. In contrast, New Oak had taken chances by this stage and found themselves 0-5 up at half-time by playing some lovely football at times. They raced into an early lead on five minutes from a fine Evan Ingram header. Ben Dorgan then added two goals before Ingram scored again to make it four. Just before half time, Ben Dorgan completed his hattrick to leave New Oak in a comfortable position. The game looked like an even contest; however, the away team proved clinical and creative.

Shortly after the half-time break, some excellent combination plays between Slaney's Sean Costello and Adam Martin found John Martin in space, as he fired home to make the score 1-5. Within five minutes, John Martin turned provider, as he set up Adam Martin for Slaney's second, making it 2-5. This seemed to wake New Oak and Evan Ingram completed his hattrick after some good work from Jesse Clarke. Ben Dorgan then added another for New Oak. However, Slaney's Peter Kehoe was cool and calm when he slotted home a clever pass from Killian Walsh in the last five minutes to make the final score 3-8. Slaney gave it their all, especially Jaden Doyle and Jake Elliot; However, New Oak and especially Stephen Lacey, Lee Kane and Jesse Clarke, played some dominating football and deserved the away win and 3 points.

Round Tower Rovers v Nurney Villa
Div Two 09/01 11:00
Round Tower Rovers 4 - 2 Nurney Villa

Rovers started their 2022 off with a 4-2 win in Timahoe against an improved Nurney Villa team. Rovers started strong with tremendous pressure from the wing. They then found the breakthrough from an excellent finish by Mickey Keogh to make it 1-0 to Round Tower. However, Villa hit back to level when a well-worked move saw Martin Mullins cross for Pakie Fleming to head home. Nurney then went ahead in the 39th minute when a Pakie Fleming free kick into the area was headed home by Kyle Harenberg before Round Tower's Paddy Brady equalised before the break. Halftime Round Tower Rovers 2 - 2 Nurney Villa.

In the second half, Nurney Villa upped the pressure and almost found a third goal only for the fingertips of Round Tower's William Oxley. Rovers then found a third of their own from the header of Colum Dunne from a corner. Nurney played well but still couldn't force an equaliser. Finally, a goal in the dying minutes from Round Tower's Enda Butler put the nail in the coffin. It made the final score Round Tower Rovers 4 - 2 Nurney Villa.

Best for Nurney were Andy O'Brien, Mick Murphy, Joe Byrne and Thomas Murphy.

Best for Round Tower Rovers were William Oxley, Paddy Brady and Enda Butler.

Baltinglass Town v Fortbarrington FC
Div Two 09/01 11:00
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

Best for Baltinglass were Mick Dowling, Chris Sutton and Brandon O'Rourke.

Best for Fortbarrington were Jack Brennan, Joseph Brennan, Liam Moloney, Russel Perse and Brandon Brennan.

Burrin Celtic v Vale Wanderers B
Div Two 08/01 19:30
Burrin Celtic 4 - 3 Vale Wanderers B

A slow first half of football consisted of the home side playing on the front foot, with a well-organised Vale containing them well and playing on the counter-attack. However, Burrin managed to break through the superb Vale defence mid-way through the first half, only for Vale keeper Mark Brennan to pull off an excellent point-blank save. Moments later, Vale had a great break away, and Conor Byrne was put through, only for the Burrin keeper Craig Doyle to pull off an excellent save. With 5 minutes left in the first half, a Vale breakaway resulted in the game's first goal when Geoffrey Doran's excellent work allowed him to release Byrne. He squared the ball to Ceilum Darcy, who slotted it past the keeper from close range. Halftime 0-1 in favour of Vale.

Burrin started the second half strongly, and after 5 minutes, they equalised through a fine header by Kevin Murphy. This created a crazy 10-minute spell that saw Burrin grab another goal when John Kinsella scored a brilliant chip over the Vale keeper 2 minutes later to put Burrin 2-1 ahead. Liam McGuill then put Burrin 3-1 ahead, and it seemed Burrin had put the game to bed. But credit to Vale, who didn't let their heads drop, Keelan Brennan, struck from distance to reduce the deficit to one. Then, Darren O Keefe raced down the wing and crossed for Byrne, who rifled the ball past the keeper, leaving the game all square again with not long left to go. A great contest had been played out, and it was end-to-end under the lights in the fantastic all-weather pitch. But Burrin didn't stop and scored the game's final goal from Myles Hutton in the 65th minute. Both teams had chances, but the final score ended 4-3 to Burrin.

Best for Vale on the day were Geoffrey Doran, Kieran Casey, and Conor Byrne.

Best for Burrin were Nick Mullins, Kevin Murphy, and Josh Fernandez.

Vale Wanderers v Bagenalstown AFC
Div One 09/01 11:00
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.

St. Patricks Boys B v Killeshin FC B
Div One 08/01 19:30
St. Patricks Boys B 5 - 1 Killeshin FC B

On a frosty night in the meadows this parish derby was played out under the lights. The home side got off to a dream start when Jamie Malone got his head on a corner kick putting Pats 1-0 up. 5 minutes later and they doubled their lead when Brian McDermott scored another header. The home side were very comfortable for the remainder of the first half and the game stayed 2-0 at half time.

The second half took a while to come to life but Levan deSilva put Pats 3-0 up and result never looked in doubt after this. Levan scored his second goal 5 minutes later and set John O Neill up for Pats 5th goal with a lovely corner.

Pats will be disappointed to have conceded towards the end when James Brennan’s headed effort flew past the pats keeper but Craig Doyle wasn’t troubled in the Pats goal otherwise and the game finished 5-1 to St Pats which sees them right back in the title race. It was a solid team performance from St Pats while James Brennan, Gavin Deering and Micky McCartney never gave up for Killeshin.

New Oak Boys v Killeshin FC
Prem League 09/01 11:00
New Oak Boys 5 - 1 Killeshin FC
New Oak reeled off another impressive win in their persuit of the title to go 3 points clear of Parkville at the top. Killeshin are a good side but 2 losses in December left their title ambitions hanging by a thread, but they started well here, hitting the opening goal after just 9 minutes, Michael O'Rourke heading home from a Julian Strain corner. New Oak were level 10 minutes later, Jordan Harmon won a free kick on the right and Dean Kelly's inch perfect delivery from the dead ball found David Doyle to make it 1-1. Killeshin's Kieran Hennessy had a chance to restore the lead for the visitors but his effort was well saved. On the half a thunderbolt from James McGrath found the roof of the net to give The Boys a 2-1 lead after the Killeshin defence failed to deal with Harmon cross. The second half saw New Oak dominate and on 58 minutes they stretched their lead, Harmon released Conor Byrne down the right wing and Byrne's cross was headed home by Lee Walker for 3-1. A near post header from Walker 7 minutes later made it 4-1 as Killeshin just couldn't keep pace with a rampant New Oak. The visitors best chances were coming from set pieces but neither O'Rourke or Hennessy could convert when the chances were presented and it was New Oak that would wrap up the scoring with 5 minutes left on the clock, debutant Jamie Murphy saw his effort well saved but Dean Kelly was on hand to knock in the rebound to leave it 5-1 at the end. Impressing for New Oak were James McGrath, Dean Kelly, Lee Walker and Jordan Harmon. Killeshin's best included Aaron Donnolly, Niall Scully and John Fleming.
