Ballymurphy Celtic 1

Killeshin FC 1

In an entertaining affair the spoils were shared in Ballymurphy between two even teams.

Killeshin had the best of the opening bouts, but Ballymurphy capitalised on a loose ball from a corner and Tina Kavanagh made no mistake from close range to give the hosts the lead before half-time.

Both teams had chances in the second half before Killeshin equalised through a strike from Bláthnaid Wall. In a competitive half of football, both teams had good chances to take the lead, with Ballymurphy hitting the woodwork twice in the space of five minutes. A good point for both sides who have shown massive improvement in the last few weeks.

Best for Killeshin were Ciara Townsend, Bláthnaid Wall and Kim Nolan while Tina Kavanagh, Catriona Scully and Rachael Murphy served Ballymurphy well.

Parkville United 1

Killeshin FC 4

Two goals each for debutant Kieran Hennessy and Adam Steed saw Killeshin claim the points in Tullow on Sunday.

Hennessy took just five minutes to open his account when he volleyed Killeshin in front, Steed with the assist, as the visitors were off to a flyer. Steed and Hennessy were giving the United rear guard a horrid time and it was little surprise when Hennessy netted his and Killeshin’s second midway through the half, his curling shot from the edge of the box finding the net despite the best efforts of Sean Tompkins in the Parkville goal. United went on to dominate possession for the remainder of the half but couldn't find the goal their play merited before the break.

That changed five minutes after the restart, Jack Kennedy and Gareth Doyle linking up well before feeding the ball to Tom Pollard out wide, Pollard’s cross finding Paul Fitzgerald who neatly finished to halve the arrears. United pressed on in search of an equaliser but Killeshin defended well and then struck for their third just after the hour, Dylan Regan picked out Steed on the edge of the box, the striker skipping past a couple of challenges before firing Killeshin 3-1 ahead. Gareth Doyle spurred a good chance for United before Steed put the game to bed for Killeshin, Chris Connors with the assist as Steed slotted home number four.

Best for Killeshin were Declan Bolton, Kieran Walsh, Shane Martin and Brendan McDonald. United’s best included Jamie Welsh, Tom Pollard and Dylan Sheridan.

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.

The second half saw Newpark improve their passing and on 65 minutes saw Denise Doyle cross the ball to Abbie Wall who tapped in from close range.

Dolmen Celtic 5

Killeshin FC 3

Dolmen started quick and were rewarded with an early goal from an own goal with the ball being headed over the Killeshin keeper by his own defender who misjudged the cross. The tables turned quick as Killeshin equalised with the next attack which was a well worked move which saw a great cross from Franky Dowling headed in at the near post by Liam Serry. Dolmen took the upper hand once again when Paul Connors netted from a twenty-yard dead ball. Killeshin fought back to level the game again from a long throw in which lead to a goal mouth scramble for the ball which ended up in Dolmen’s goal when Liam Serry smashed it in. Dolmen went ahead for the third time when Killeshin’s defence made a mistake and Joe Doran was quick to pounce and finish the chance to leave the home team leading at the break. After the break Killeshin once again equalised when a poor mistake in the Dolmen defence let Declan Bolton score. Both teams had spells of possession but Keelan Lacey hit a wonder strike to be envied by Pirlo himself from just outside of the box to hit the top corner leaving the opposition number one with no chance. Dolmen killed the game off when they took a two-goal lead for the first time after a great goal from Danny Thompson.

Liam Dempsey was outstanding for the yellow and black with three assists. Best for Killeshin were Ciaran Walsh, Niall Scully and Liam Serry.

Burrin Celtic 3

Killeshin FC 2

For the first thirty minutes of this game neither team produced any clear-cut chances with Killeshin being the more dominant, but they didn’t take advantage of their dominance.

Killeshin’s Evan Treacy worked hard on the left wing, providing a number of fine crosses into Burrin’s penalty area, but none were converted. That all changed on 33 minutes, when Burrin made Killeshin pay for their lack of finishing, as a fine team move ended up with Adam Nolan breaking the deadlock when he shot home for a 1-0 score line. On thirty minutes an unstoppable shot from all of 30 yards by Killeshin’s Jack Brennan levelled the scores at 1-1 and that was the score at the interval.

Burrin got off to a great start in the second half as Dan Smyth beautifully lobbed the Killeshin keeper to put them into a 2-1 lead and fifteen minutes later Burrin scored again after some great link-up play saw Scott Treacy finish well to make it 3-1. Daniel Core got Killeshin’s second, with only twenty minutes to go to make the score 3-2 and whilst they pushed hard until the end, some strong defending by Burrin kept them out. Both teams put in great performances, but Burrin just about edged it and deserved their 3-2 victory.

It was an overall team effort from Burrin and standing out for Killeshin were Kealum Hand, Lee Nolan and Evan Tracey.
