St. Joseph’s Blue 0

St. Patrick’s Boys 10

St. Patrick’s Boys were too strong for St. Joseph’s as they had the perfect start to their Youths division campaign in McArdle’s Cross, Tinryland.

In what were difficult conditions as it rained throughout the game, it took 12 minutes for the Graiguecullen side to take the lead as Cian Cleary made it 1-0. St. Pat’s got into their stride as the game went on and it was 2-0 when Levan De Silva headed home. It was 3-0 after 40 minutes as another good team move was finished off by Cleary for his second of the game and that was how it stayed until the break.

St. Pat’s were stronger physically and this strength was telling in the second half. They got two quick goals after the restart from Lord Afrifa and Andrew Lewis to make it 5-0. With the score line looking more comfortable, St Pats ran in more subs and Diarmuid Ruth came off the bench to get himself a hat-trick with goals on 60, 65 and 80 minutes. With the game winding down, St. Pats made the score line more comfortable as Afrifa added two more goals on the 85 and 87 minutes to put them into double figures.

St Patricks Boys v Hanover Harps

St Patricks Boys 0 - 1 Hanover Harps

St Patrick's Boys 0

Hanover Harps 1

Johnny Waters’ goal deep in added time saw Harps edge out St Pat’s to maintain their 100% start to the season.

The opening quarter saw Graham Delaney and Simon O’Shea both go close for Hanover while Gearoid Cuddihy brought an excellent save out of Kevin Power in the Harps goal. As the half wore on Hanover began to impose themselves on the game and almost got the lead on the stroke of half time when Sean Kavanagh just failed to get a touch on Alan Shaw’s free kick when any touch would surely have resulted in a goal.

The second half again saw Harps with the best of the chances, Delaney heading narrowly over from a Mark Davis cross before O’Shea saw his effort tipped onto the post and out for a corner. Pat’s were beginning to tire but the introduction of Kian Kerr and Cian Cleary gave them an energy boost and Power was again called on to make an excellent stop from Conor Clack. With time running out Harps began to exert some serious pressure. Loud appeals for a penalty fell on deaf ears before substitute Waters somehow shot wide from six yards on 90 minutes. Pat’s thought they had done enough for a point but in the third and final minute of added time Delaney was fouled and from Phil Neenan’s free kick Waters pounced to win the game for Harps and reward the efforts of Simon O’Shea, Jason Murphy, Mark Davis and Niall Swan.

Best for St Pat’s included John O’Neill, Harry Taylor and Mick Condron.

Crettyard United v St Patricks Boys

Crettyard United 3 - 1 St Patricks Boys

Crettyard United 3

St Patrick’s Boys 1

League Champions Crettyard got their quest for a four in a row off to a winning start, overturning a 1-0 half time deficit before running out deserved winners.

The visitors began well and were in front on 12 minutes, Fran Doogue finding the top corner of Jeff Moran's net with a near 30-yard drive. Pat’s were enjoying a fair share of possession and created chances for Dominic Byrne and Jonathon Dowling but neither could find the net when well placed. United had loud appeals for a penalty fall on deaf ears when Lee Salter went down in the box and Pat’s held their advantage into the break.

The second half saw United begin to dominate and within ten minutes they were level, the Boys defence only half cleared a free kick and when it fell to Mark Lyons 25 yards out he thumped the loose ball into the bottom corner for 1-1. With momentum and fitness on their side the hosts went ahead on 65 minutes when Terence Haughney powerfully headed home at the back post from a Cristoir Maher cross. The visitors rallied briefly and had chances for Doogue and Dowling come and go before Maher finished off the scoring ten minutes from time with a trademark 20-yard free kick for 3-1.

Best for the champions were Cristoir Maher, Jim Dunne and Terence Haughney. Impressing for the visitors were Gearoid Cuddihy, Fran Doogue and Michael Calvey.
