Hanover Harps v Ballymurphy Celtic

Hanover Harps 2 - 2 Ballymurphy Celtic

Hanover Harps 2

Ballymurphy Celtic 2

A late Thomas Doyle header earned Ballymurphy a point as Hanover will be left wondering just how they didn't take all 3 points. Bally scored on 3 minutes and again 3 minutes from time but in between Hanover dominated for long periods. The visitors got off to a dream start, Jason Cogley's corner was only half cleared to the waiting MJ Doran and his neatly struck volley flew into the bottom corner from 25 yards. Thereafter Hanover dominated the half. Simon O'Shea saw not one but two efforts come back off the crossbar before Harps were awarded a penalty for handball. Jason Murphy calmly slotting home from the spot on the half hour. 10 minutes later Hanover were in front, O'Shea's pass opened up the Celtic back line for Colin Campion who neatly lobbed the advancing keeper to put Hanover 2-1 ahead at the break. Moments after the restart Bally's Anto Jordan seized on a loose pass but his effort from outside the box smashed off the crossbar and away. Phil Neenan had a glorious chance to put the game to bed for the hosts with 10 minutes left but with almost too much time to pick his spot he could only pick out the foot of the post. Hanover paid the price for a series of missed chances when Jack Foley crossed for Doyle to head home and earn Ballya share of the spoils. Best for Hanover included Corey Connolly, Cathal Coughlan and Stephen Chalton. Ballymurphy had impressive showings from MJ Doran, Thomas Doyle and Jack Foley.

St Joseph's FC v Hanover Harps
Youths league 26/10 14:30
St Joseph's FC 2 - 5 Hanover Harps

St Joseph’s AFC 2 – 5 Hanover Harps AFC.

This was a game of two halves, with Joey’s in the ascendency in the first half, as they were quickest to the ball, all over the pitch, in the opening exchanges, but they lacked composure in front of goal. Joey’s energy finally paid off on the 24th minute, when Max Bolger fired in a speculative shot, which found its way into the Hanover net for a 1-0 lead.

Hanover absolutely ignited their game in the second-half. On 49 minutes, Shane Murphy’s vicious shot ‘stung’ Joey's keeper’s hands and he couldn’t keep hold of the ball and there was David Adebayo who gratefully tapped home ‘the gift’ to equalise at 1-1. David Adebayo was raiding down the left and his raking cross found Arnus Karalius to stroke home, with the clever assistance of Arnus Ubartas, who ‘shepherded’ the ball over the line to make it 1-2, on 55 minutes. On sixty five minutes, David Adebayo squared the ball to Arnus Ubartas, who’s touch set up Arnus Karalius to score his brace and make the score 1-3, with Hanover being in full control of proceedings. With twenty minutes left, a Shane Murphy corner was met by the head of Cory Connolly, but it was saved by the Joey’s keeper, but he spilled the ball and Robert Norton gleefully slammed the ball into the net to make the score 1 – 4. On 73 minutes, Joey’s were awarded a free-kick, which Angus O’Shea took and he found

Paddy Regan who scored to make the score 2 – 4. The ‘highlight’ goal arrived with only ten minutes to go, when David Adebayo was again the provider for a Fabian Schaebe ‘piledriver’ from twenty yards, into the top right-hand corner of the net, giving the Joey’s keeper absolutely no chance and make the final score 2-5 to Hanover. Standing out for Hanover were Theo Hagelstein, Corey Connolly and the ‘magical’ David Adebayo, whilst best for Joey’s were Joe Regan, Paddy Regan, Angus O’Shea and Evan Kearns.

St Fiacc's FC v Hanover Harps
27/10 14:00
St Fiacc's FC 1 - 5 Hanover Harps

St Fiaccs 1 Hanover Harps 5

This was an evenly contested encounter for the opening 20 minutes with both defences very much on top. Fiaccs broke the deadlock on 23 minutes when Clara Hayden broke the offside trap and slotted past the on rushing Christine Middleton from 20 yards. The Hanover response was swift when on the half hour mark the first real attack of note resulted in Essmay Murphy finding herself free 15 yards out and she just lifted it over the advancing keeper. A different Hanover turned up for the second half however when on 48 minutes Murphy beat the offside trap and her square ball was tucked home on the volley by Rachael Whelan. On the hour it was three when Essmay Murphy spotted the keeper off her line and the most exquisite chip from 30 yards nestled in the corner. Fiaccs were always dangerous on the break and but for the exploits of Christine Middleton in goal and Kellie Nolan a colossus at centre half the story of the game may have been different. Hanover continued on the front foot and on 75 minutes Leanne Tumelty’s perfect corner was headed home at the back post by Rachael Whelan and she would round off the scoring late on when a goal kick fell to her feet 40 yards out and her first time volley was rifled home to claim the points. Sally Amond, Sara Kerfah and Caoimhe Fitzpatrick impressed for Fiaccs while Megan Walsh, Ciara Nolan, Christine Middleton and Kellie Nolan were outstanding for the victors.

Killeshin 0

Hanover got the quick start they craved when on ten minutes some great combination play between Steph Kehoe and Essmay Murphy found Kehoe free in the six-yard box and she poked past the keeper. Soon it would be two when Murphy herself broke the offside trap and found the bottom corner. Murphy got her second on thirty minutes when her snapshot from a tight angle nestled in the bottom corner. She would complete her hat trick just before the break with the goal of the game with a volley from 15 yards following Nicole Dowling’s exquisite cross.

The second half was more of the same with Murphy on the scoreboard again. Rachael Whelan was tripped in the penalty area on 60 minutes and slotted home the resulting spot kick. Murphy got her fifth on 65 when she headed home a Stephanie Kehoe corner. It fell to the industrious Sarah Keating to wrap up the scoring on 70 minutes with a fine 20-yard strike which found the top corner to round off the efforts of Clodagh Maguire, Kellie Nolan, Isobelle White and of course Essmay Murphy.

Niamh Smith, Joanne Dempsey and Clare Kelly tried hard for a busy Killeshin unit.

Hanover Harps 3 - 1 Slaney Rovers

Hanover Harps 3

Slaney Rovers 1

A brace from Colin Campion helped Harps turn a 1-0 half time deficit into a comfortable win.

Rovers came flying out of the traps and were a goal to the good within 60 seconds, Andy Foley and Daniel O'Brien combining to set up Aaron Broughall to score. Hanover recovered but a combination of poor finishing and good defending saw chances come and go for Eoghan Byrne, Ray Walker and Simon O’Shea.

The second half saw the crossbar deny Rovers as Dominic Byrne's cross evaded everyone and rebounded off the goal frame. Then a brilliant 15-minute spell from the hosts turned the game on its head. On 52 minutes Campion headed home from a Matty Viola free kick to level matters. Five minutes later it was 2-1 as Campion latched onto a loose pass and raced in on goal to double the lead. It got better for Harps moments later, Ray Walker’s 30-yard thunderbolt was tipped over for a corner but from the resulting dead ball Matty Viola picked out Johnny Waters and his powerful header made it 3-1. Slaney did respond and created a couple of decent chances but just couldn't convert one of them as Hanover eased to the win.

Best for Hanover included Ray Walker, Cathal Coughlan and Simon O’Shea. Rovers had solid performances from Paddy Farrell, Lubomir Lesko and Fergal Harmon.
