Mill recorded an emphatic victory in the battle of the Celtics in Ballitore on Sunday and in doing so clinched the Division Two title.

Mill scored three times in the first half with strikes from Geraldine Norton, Deirbhile Byrne and the prolific Mag Nolan. The home side kept up the tempo after the break but found the Kilree keeper in good form. Mill finally found the net again on 60 minutes when Rachel Fennin netted after a good move down the right. By the time the game finished Mill had emptied the bench with substitutes such as Aishling Woods and Emma Murphy making impressive cameos. Captain Pamela Grufferty was presented with the trophy afterwards to the delight of everyone associated with Mill Celtic.

Best for Mill Celtic on the day were Deirbhile Byrne, Muireann Fagan, and Megan Grufferty.

St Josephs Blue Youths 3 - 0 Crettyard United

St Joseph’s Blue 3

Crettyard United 0

Joey’s entertained Crettyard in blustery conditions, with Joey’s getting off to a jittery start, but they soon settled and started passing the ball around well and opening the Crettyard defence.

Joey’s first goal came when Jonah Dunne made a good run up the right wing and he then pulled back a lovely ball to the on-rushing Evan Maguire, who rocketed the ball into the back of the Crettyard net for 1-0. Joey’s dominating play and possession, they didn’t have long to wait for a second goal, as Dawid Radochonski’s drilled free-kick, forced the Crettyard keeper to push the ball on to the crossbar and Cian Shannon was there to finish off the rebound for 2-0. Joey’s third goal came just before the interval, when Sam Byrne made a run up the left and then crossed in a fine ball across the goals and it was met by Jonah Dunne, who swept it into the net for 3-0 and they took that comfortable lead into the interval.

In the second-half, Crettyard re-jigged their line-up and pushed three up fronts but the Joey’s defence stayed rock solid and kept a deserved ‘clean-sheet’ although, Joey’s should have added to their tally, but they were denied when a shot hit the post.

Best for Joey’s were Matthew Downey, Robert Timmons, Ross Mannion and Dylan McDermott, whilst it was a battling performance from Crettyard.

Round Tower Rovers v Killeshin/Hanover FC
09/03 14:30
Round Tower Rovers 0 - 8 Killeshin/Hanover FC

Round Tower Rovers 0

Killeshin/Hanover 8

Due to Knockbeg College’s great exploits in the All-Ireland GAA semi-final it was a severely depleted Killeshin/Hanover side who travelled to play Round Tower Rovers, but it was credit to their stand-ins, who put up a terrific performance, to come away with an emphatic victory.

Rovers were the first to show, when after five minutes, Killeshin/Hanover’s keeper – Mikey Dempsey, who pulled off a superb point-blank save to keep out a certain goal and thereafter, it was one-way traffic, as Killeshin/Hanover totally dominated proceedings. On twenty-five minutes Shane Murphy’s long-range effort, hit a post, however, Eoghan Fallon was on hand to fire home the rebound for 0-1. Thereafter, the outstanding Ben Dorgan stole the show for Killeshin/Hanover, as he scored five goals, in the next hour, including two twenty-yard strikes, before the interval and then scored three fine examples of the art of centre-forward as he single-handedly put Killeshin/Hanover out of sight at 0-6.

The goal of the game came on eighty-five minutes, when Shane Murphy’s forty yarder flashed past the Rovers keeper, who couldn’t do anything to prevent the score for 0-7. And they should have added to their keeper, but Eamon Moran followed up and was on hand to rifle the ball home for 0-8.

Rovers never gave up but were just outclassed and best for Killeshin/Hanover were Vinny Oba, Timmy Mohammed, Adam Nolan, the mercurial Shane Murphy and not forgetting the prolific Ben Dorgan.

Vale Wanderers 0

Mill Celtic 1

Division Two champions Mill travelled to the Superbowl on Sunday and with nothing at stake it produced a very entertaining spectacle despite the conditions.

With both defences stretched in the early exchanges it would be the visitors who would strike with the only goal of the game on 20 minutes with a fine finish. Vale had their chances to get on the score sheet but just couldn’t connect with that final pass and were left frustrated.

Best for a gallant Vale were Orlando Sawyer, Carmel Cummins and Noleen Maher.

Newpark AFC v Ballymurphy Celtic

Newpark AFC 0 - 3 Ballymurphy Celtic

Newpark FC 0

Ballymurphy Celtic 3

Weather conditions would wreak havoc in this encounter in Kilkenny on Sunday and with Ballymurphy being the bigger stronger unit it would play into their hands.

Bally started the stronger and were rewarded with a penalty on 15 minutes. The Newpark keeper got a hand to it but couldn’t keep it out. Newpark pressed hard and had good chances but were unlucky with a Tracey Bourke header cleared off the line.

Early in the second half Newpark had a chance to equalise when they were awarded a penalty only to put it wide. As Newpark were pressing they were caught on the break twice by Ballymurphy who scored two more goals. Newpark kept working right up to the end but had no joy in front of goal.

Impressive on the day for Newpark were Irene Guilfoyle, Rachael Wall, and Tracey Bourke.
