Ballymurphy Celtic v Newpark AFC

Ballymurphy Celtic 2 - 4 Newpark AFC

Ballymurphy Celtic 2

Newpark FC 4

Newpark started this encounter much the sharper and were ahead on five minutes when Tina Wright’s low shot found the bottom corner. Ballymurphy showed character and were level ten minutes later when the prolific Ann Murphy found the net. Both teams would cancel each other out for the remainder of the half.

It was a much-improved performance from Newpark in the second half when constant pressure on the Ballymurphy goal yielded a free kick in a dangerous area on 52 minutes. Jane Meagher stepped up and rifled it to the top corner. Newpark started to settle now and were soon out of sight when a couple of quick-fire strikes from Tracey Bourke would seal the three points. Ballymurphy kept pushing to the final whistle and were rewarded with a consolation from Murphy.

Aoife Barcoe and Ann Murphy impressed for Ballymurphy while Annie Dunne, Rosie Miller and Ebony Masuku stood out for Newpark.

Bagenalstown AFC 2

Burrin Celtic 0

Bagenalstown’s unbeaten start to the season continued with a comfortable win over the Ballon side.

Burren got a hold of the game in the second half but some good work from Cunningham in the goal and defenders Alan Whelan and Jimmy Cullen keep them at bay. Town did pose a threat from a few half chances but didn’t add to their lead.

Best for Town were Matty Curran, Brian Murphy and Neil Martin.

Killeshin FC v Mill Celtic
13/10 11:30
Killeshin FC 1 - 8 Mill Celtic

Killeshin FC 1

Mill Celtic 8

Mill Celtic showed their credentials to be league champions with back to back dominant performances.

They were quick out of the blocks in Killeshin on Sunday and went ahead on seven minutes when Megan Grufferty scored. The Killeshin rear-guard were under pressure throughout but were well marshalled by the experienced Mary Clare Connolly. On the half hour mark Mill put away three opportunities in ten minutes through Triona Duggan, Mag Nolan and Nicole Heaney. Killeshin never gave up and were rewarded just before the break from Suzanne Meagher’s clinical finish.

Killeshin started to play on the front foot now and created some good chances but had no joy in front of goal and were undone on 65 minutes on the counterattack when Grufferty netted her second. With Killeshin starting to tire Mill took advantage and added three more with Nolan getting her second and Duggan completing her hat trick.

Best for Mill were Mag Nolan, Megan Grufferty and Rachael Fennin while Alannah Waters, Mary Clare Connolly, Suzanne and Marie Meagher tried hard for Killeshin

Vale Wanderers v St Fiacc's FC
13/10 14:00
Vale Wanderers 0 - 0 St Fiacc's FC

Vale Wanderers 0

St Fiaccs 0

Despite the score line an entertaining game ensued between two evenly matched teams down in the Superbowl on Sunday.

Fiacc’s started the brighter and had one or two early chances but Vale grew into the game and by the time half time came it was end to end but neither team could find the breakthrough despite having good chances.

The second half was much the same story with both teams pressing for a winner but neither team could break the deadlock and finished in a draw.

Best for Fiacc’s were Sinead Hayden, Maggie Doogue and Fiona Cullen. Tara Ryan, Lyza O’Halloran, Shauna O Neill played well for Vale in what was a good team performance.

Killeshin FC v Newpark AFC
06/10 14:00
Killeshin FC 1 - 3 Newpark AFC

Killeshin FC 1

Newpark FC 3

Newpark started strong straight away with 15-year-old Kellie Ann Moran scoring after just two minutes from a great run down the wing from Sinead McGrane. This you would think should have set the tone for the game but it didn’t. Newpark got very sloppy with their game and let Killeshin back into it. Killeshin would take full advantage and equalised just before the break with an excellent finish from Niamh Smith. Suzanne Meagher thought she restored the Newpark advantage but her shot cannoned back off the post.

The game was almost settled ten minutes after the break with two quick fire goals from Newpark, the first when Tracey Bourke’s cross field pass found Jane Meagher who lobbed the advancing Killeshin keeper and Moran would net her second of the game following a flowing passing move involving herself and Sinead McGrane. That’s how things would stay with Newpark deserving winners.

Kellie Ann Moran, Tracey Bourke and Sinead McGrane impressed for Newpark while Niamh Smith and Lucy Gaffney did well for Killeshin.

Ballymurphy Celtic v Hanover Harps
06/10 14:00
Ballymurphy Celtic 2 - 8 Hanover Harps

Ballymurphy Celtic 2

Hanover Harps 8

Hanover continued their fine start to the season by beating at times a stubborn Ballymurphy.

It took until exactly 20 minutes to break the deadlock when Essmay Murphy rounded the keeper and scored from the tightest of angles. The next 15 minutes was a finishing masterclass from Rachael Whelan as she bagged a hat trick the second being the goal of the game following a fine passing move involving Ciara Nolan, Leanne Tumelty and Nicole Dowling. Stephanie Kehoe’s delivery from wide areas were excellent all day and Nicole Dowling profited when she headed home a corner and Kehoe herself would add the sixth scoring direct from a corner.

Ballymurphy to their credit kept fighting and were rewarded on 55 minutes when Ann Murphy slotted home a penalty after Emma O’Regan thought she was playing a different sport. Ten minutes later Ann Murphy got her second following a mix up in the Hanover defence. Hanover were soon back on top when Essmay Murphy got her second and with minutes remaining Leanne Tumelty was tripped in the box giving Murphy the opportunity to get her hat trick and she made no mistake.

Best for Hanover were Emma O Regan, Nicole Dowling, Clodagh Maguire and Ciara Nolan while Ann Murphy and Aoife Barcoe tried hard for Ballymurphy.
