A young Vale side pushed Premier side Crettyard to the limit in this Shield encounter at the Superbowl on Sunday.

The visitors hit the front early on when Christor Maher sent his free all the way to the net on 15 minutes. Danny Doyle was a constant threat and he was denied by a fine save on 30 minutes. At the other end Luke Maher denied Billy Lennon O’Brien with a goal line clearance to leave the visitors 1-0 up at the break.

In the second half Vale’s attack came to life and on 55 minutes Sean Smithers squared for Willie Kavanagh to tap home the equaliser. The Laois side began to dominate and scored two quick fire goals through Gearoid Cuddihy and Luke Maher to lead 3-1. Back came Vale and Smithers again was the orchestrator when setting up debutant James Dowling to score his second of the game. Lee Salter was sprung from the bench and he duly scored on 70 minutes to restore Cretty’s two goal cushion. However, the home side failed to lie down and again it was the quick thinking of Smithers from a corner kick that set up Jack Treacy to volley home from the edge of the area to make it 4-3. Vale tried valiantly in the last six minutes but the Premier side held on to advance.

Best for Cretty were Seamus Dowling, Danny Doyle and Craig Comerford while for Vale it was a gallant all round team performance.

Killeshin FC 0

Crettyard hosted Killeshin in a local derby and as always in these types of games it was full of action throughout.

It was Crettyard who started the better of the two teams as they won a series of corners and from one of these Luke Phillips rose highest to head home for 1-0 to Crettyard. After falling behind Killeshin were the team who looked the more likely to score but both sides were working really hard with each side having a gilt-edged chance apiece Killeshin’s fell to Mikey Dempsey who shot just over the bar from inside the box and for Crettyard Ian Shanahan’s fierce shot was well saved by Killeshin’s keeper Craig Doyle. The interval came with Crettyard holding on to that slender 1-0 lead.

Killeshin went on the attack early in the second-half but were undone with a swift counter-attack following a Killeshin corner as Tobo Olaoye went on a fantastic run down the left and he crossed in for Luke Bailey to flick on to Ian Shanahan to head firmly home and make the score 2-0. Killeshin now had a really uphill task to try and get something out of this game but they were undone again as a great cross from Crettyard’s Ciaran Burke found Luke Phillips to head home for his brace and make the score an unassailable 3-0 lead as time was quickly running out. Killeshin tried hard right to the finish, but they couldn’t really trouble the Crettyard defence or their keeper and it ended 3-0 to Crettyard.

Standing out for Crettyard were Luke Phillips, Luke Ramsbottom and John Brennan, whilst best for Killeshin were Lee Nolan, Kaelum Hand and Evan Tracey.

Crettyard hosted Vale in a top of the table clash that had everything where both teams had a titanic struggle but there was an enormous amount of clever tactical play involved as well as both teams sought supremacy.

Crettyard took an early lead when a Vale defensive error allowed Jamie Maher to pick up a loose ball and rifle home the ball into the net for 1-0. Vale then started to get on top and they finished the half the stronger but Crettyard were still holding on to their slender 1-0 lead as the interval came.

Vale equalised early in the second-half when James Dowling got on the end of Jake Doyle’s fine cross to make it 1-1 and 15 minutes later Vale scored again when P J Haughney cut in from the left and struck a sweet strike at the Crettyard keeper who fumbled his save and pushed it into James Dowling’s path and he made no mistake scoring his brace and making it 1-2 to Vale. Crettyard equalised within five minutes when after a great run by Tobi Olaoye enabled him to set up Jamie Maher to score his brace and make it 2-2. Vale were reduced to ten men and Crettyard took full advantage of their numerical supremacy and pressed Vale hard but they got caught on a counter-attack as James Dowling found space down the left and he ran through to score again and complete a fine hat-trick and make the score 2-3 to Vale with little time left. Crettyard showed their fighting spirit and never say die attitude as Tadhg Dunne snatched a very late equaliser with the last kick of the match to level the scores at 3-3 and that’s how it finished.

This was an exciting and pulsating game and a draw was a fair result but it still leaves Vale top of the league by five points so they will take some catching.
