Parkville United v St Joseph's FC
05/01 14:30
Parkville United 4 - 1 St Joseph's FC

Parkville United 4

St Joseph’s FC 1

It was a scrappy start to this game as both sides sought to gain a foothold in the game, but it was Parkville who had the early chances and who gained confidence from this.

Parkville took the lead on twenty minutes, following some good combination play between Sean Tracey and Kyle Byrne, who squared the ball to his namesake – Luke Byrne to score easily for a vital 1-0 lead.

Shortly after, Parkville doubled their lead, when Jake Hickey won the ball in the Joey’s box and he laid the ball off to Craig Staunton and he slotted it into the bottom corner of the net for 2-0.

Good play in the middle of the pitch from Jack O’Neill and Craig Staunton who released Sean Tracey down the wing and he cut inside and played a reverse pass to Jake Hickey who scored courtesy of a deflected goal, off a Joey’s defender for 3-0 and that was the score at the interval.

It had been a difficult half for the young Joey’s team, but as the second – half wore on, they were getting better, but they got another set-back as Parkville’s, Sean Tracey took a free-kick and lofted it over the wall, where it was fumbled into the net by the Joey’s unsighted keeper for 4-0.

To Joey’s credit they kept trying to get something out of the game and they got some consolation, with ten minutes to go, when Corey Connolly scored to make the final score 4-1.

Standing out for Parkville were Dylan Sheridan, Dylan Hanley, Sean Tracey and jack O’Neill, whilst best for Joey’s were Kenneth Bello, Aongus O’Se and Jordan O’Brien.

St Patricks Boys v Killeshin/Hanover FC
05/01 14:30
St Patricks Boys 2 - 1 Killeshin/Hanover FC

St Patrick’s Boys 2

Killeshin/Hanover 1

St Pats started the better in this game and they went 1-0 up after only twenty minutes, through Luke Brennan.

However, this only inspired Killeshin/Hanover and after some very good play they equalised on thirty minutes, as some fine individual play, saw Shane Murphy wriggle clear of three defenders and square the ball to Dylan Gately, who fired home the equaliser for 1-1.

With half-time beckoning, it looked as if there would be a half-time deadlock, but after a slip by a Killeshin/Hanover defender, ‘man of the match’ David Dunphy took full advantage to make it 2-1 to St Pat’s.

The second-half saw a dominant performance from Killeshin/Hanover, but the closest they came was when Ben Dorgan’s 70th minute header hit the inside of the post, ran along the goal-line and into the St Pat’s keeper’s hands.

The game came to a close with St Pat’s on top and it was only an outstanding save from Sean Dollard – Killeshin/Hanover’s keeper that kept the final score at 2-1.

Best for St Pat’s were David Dunphy, Aaron Cullen and Mark Behan, whilst standing out for Killeshin/Hanover were Adam Nolan, Josh Lacken, Evan Treacy and Bill Fitzgerald.

Vale Wanderers v Round Tower Rovers
05/01 14:30
Vale Wanderers 8 - 2 Round Tower Rovers

Vale Wanderers 8

Round Tower Rovers 2

Vale started off by far the brighter and they got a ‘dream start’ as Sean Smithers gave them a 1-0 lead within a minute of the start and then Jack Treacy then got in ‘on the act’ as he made it 2-0 just five minutes later.

Mark Foley then picked up the ball on halfway and he went past two defenders, before slotting it into the bottom corner from 30 yards and extending Vale’s lead to 3-0.

Round Tower then pulled a goal back from a superbly hit free-kick for 3-1, but Vale scored another through Jack Treacy for his brace and a 4-1 half-time lead.

Jack Treacy completed his hat-trick after just five minutes into the half for 5-1, after some good work by Sean Smithers and shortly after, Sean Smithers got himself on the score sheet following a good finish and it was 6-1.

Brooklyn Dermody then scored, with a good finish from a corner for 7-1 and Jack Treacy completed Vale’s scoring when he scored his fourth to make it 8-1, but to their credit Round Tower never stopped working and they got some consolation, five minutes from time, as they scored another to make the final score 8-2.

Standing out for Vale were Jack Treacy, Sean Smithers and Mark Foley, whilst it was a battling performance from Round Tower.

St Josephs Blue Youths v Burrin Celtic
05/01 14:00
St Josephs Blue Youths 2 - 3 Burrin Celtic

St Joseph’s Blue 2

Burrin Celtic 3

Burrin started the brighter of the two teams putting the Joey’s defence under severe pressure, with chances falling to Dan Smyth, who volleyed just over the bar and a couple that fell to Donnacha Murphy, who headed just wide, from the back post.

Joey’s were surprised by Burrin’s physicality and their usual game went to pieces, as they panicked on the ball and rushed their shots, as Burrin dominated.

Burrin opened the scoring when they were awarded a free-kick on the right and Adam Deacon’s cross was headed home emphatically by Lorcan Doyle for 0-1.

Joey’s had settled and they created some chances of their own and they equalised when a Burrin clearance was charged down and Jonah Dunne went on to shoot home from an acute angle for 1-1.

Burrin went back into the lead when Dan Smyth won a free-kick and he fired it in, but it was blocked by the Joey’s wall, however, he latched on to the rebound and coolly put it into the net for 1-2 and that was the score at half-time.

In the second-half, Joey’s started playing the better football and dominated most of the possession and their equaliser came following an interception by Dylan McDermott, who then passed to Rory Guerin and he crossed the ball into Evan McGuire, who calmly converted for 2-2, in what was a fine display of passing and movement.

With time running out and a draw looking the most likely result, Burrin were awarded a penalty and up stepped Eli Byrne, who hit the ball straight down the middle for 2-3 and that’s how it finished, in a really hard fought game, between two very determined sides.

Best for Joey’s were Dylan McDermott, Sam Byrne, Robert Timmons and Ben Murphy, whilst standing out for Burrin were Donnacha Murphy, Eoin Kavanagh and Aaron Bolger,

Nurney Villa B v Wolfhill Athletic
Div One 06/01 14:00
Nurney Villa B 0 - 1 Wolfhill Athletic

Wolfhill Athletic 1

Nurney Villa 0

Wolfhill overcame Nurney B in a game in the lower half of the table.

It was a game of few chances in Nurney. Wolfhill enjoyed a huge amount of possession in the first half in particular and made this count when Murtagh Condron rocketed home the only goal of the game just fifteen minutes following a cross from Ceilum Darcy from a corner. Wolfhill constantly threatened for the remainder of the half but couldn’t breach the Nurney rearguard again.

Much the same as the first half, Wolfhill had the ball for large periods of the second half. Good chances came the way of the industrious Bernard Wheatley who shot narrowly wide ten minutes in and another long distance effort from Murtagh Condron which blazed narrowly over the bar. Both sides had good efforts but could not find that much needed breakthrough.

The game petered out in the final 15 minutes with Wolfhill recording a much needed win thanks to an excellent performance from Ciaran Carroll who was ably assisted by PJ Rowan and Murtagh Condron.

Castlemore United v Hanover Harps B
Div One 06/01 11:00
Castlemore United 1 - 2 Hanover Harps B

Castlemore United 1

Hanover Harps 2

In a battle between top and bottom, it was a tighter game than you might have expected.

There was some good work in the Castlemore defence to keep the league leaders out early on. Dillon Murphy had a chance for the visitors in the very first minute but his effort was high. Kuba Dobosz saw his headed effort fly over the bar after nine minutes and followed this with a shot saved by Craig Doyle in the Castlemore goal three minutes later. Hanover were well on top throughout and Shane Noonan was on the end of a hat trick of chances but couldn't find the net. The breakthrough came on 21 minutes when an Aaron Wynne corner was headed into the net by Dobosz. Try as they might, the visitors couldn't add a second before half time.

Hanover started the second half well and on 49 minutes, Pat Carr was brought down in the Castlemore box but the resulting penalty was driven over the bar. Both teams continued to press with the two ‘keepers keeping their sides in the game. With five minutes left, Shane Noonan broke through the Castlemore defense but hit the upright; Dillon Murphy recovered the second ball and squared to Mikey Kavanagh to score low to the ‘keeper’s right to make it 2-0. The Castlemore heads didn’t drop and they pulled one back in the 90th minute when James Carroll was fouled outside the box and he stepped up and swung a nice cross in and Blain Cosgrove headed home to give them some hope. A 2-1 victory for Hanover possibly flattered Castlemore but to their credit they fought until the final whistle on a day where Hanover maybe should have been more clinical.

Great team performance by everyone with Craig Doyle Anthony Moran Rian Farrell and Stephen Hogan impressing for Castlemore United.
