St Pat’s completely dominated this match from start to finish, against a dogged and determined Bagenalstown team, who gave their all for the full 90 minutes, but they were given a footballing lesson by this very strong and well organised St Pat’s team.

St Pat’s had the lion’s share of possession, but it took them 22 minutes before they broke down the hard-working Bagenalstown defence as Diarmaid Ruth coolly slotted home for 1-0.

St Pat’s doubled their lead five minutes later when a fine Cian Cleary corner was drilled home by Leven De Silva for 2-0 and then Diarmaid Ruth notched his second near the interval and they took this 3-0 lead into half-time.

Bagenalstown showed more intent on their attacking play and they were stringing more passes together, without being really threatening, but after one move they were hit by a ‘killer blow’ as Cian Cleary spectacularly volleyed home from the edge of the box on 52 minutes for 4-0.

Diarmaid Ruth completed his hat-trick on 55 minutes for 5-0 and after that the ‘floodgates’ opened as both Andrew Lewis and Dino Marcu scored hat-tricks of their own to make the final score 11-0.

Battling hard for Bagenalstown were Matty Curran, Richie Whelan and Craig Fogarty, whilst standing out for St Pat’s were Leven De Silva, Tom Mitchell and Ben Costello

Honours were even after this goal fest in Clonegal on Sunday morning. The visitors got off to a flyer and were 2-0 ahead inside 10 minutes with goals from Brian Maguire and Conor Clack. The hosts were back in the game when Mark Egan converted a penalty on 20 minutes, but St Pats reply was to score 2 more. Jordan Harmon made it 3-1 after been released on goal by John O'Neill and when Conor Clack set up Gearoid Cuddihy for number 4 on 35 minutes the visitors must have thought the points were secure, but Stars responded again, and Alan Nolan scored to leave it 4-2 to Pats at half time. The early stages of the second half was all Celtic and Egan converted his second penalty of the game to reduce the arrears further before Brendan levelled matters with 20 minutes still to play. Having blown a 3-goal lead, St Pats set about trying to win the game for a second time and must have thought they had done just that when Harmon netted his second to put the visitors 5-4 ahead with a couple of minutes remaining. Celtic wouldn't be denied however and with the game in added time Behan struck again to level it and earn Stars their first point of the season to reward the efforts of Alan Nolan. Brendan Behan and Peter Ryan. Best for Pats were Conor Clack, Frank Fanning and Jordan Harmon

St Patricks Boys v Freebooters FC

St Patricks Boys 1 - 2 Freebooters FC

St Patrick’s Boys 1

Freebooters FC 2

This was a great game of football from beginning to end, in what was a really competitive Cup – Tie, as it was ‘nip and tuck’ for the first 30 minutes, as both sides tried really hard to dominate proceedings.

St Pat’s won a corner, half an hour in and Andrew Kehoe swung in a fine ball which was met by Leven De Silva who headed home strongly for a 1-0 lead and St Pat’s took that slender lead into the interval.

The second half saw Freebooters equalise early on for 1-1 and both teams pushed hard for the winner in a very tense and tight match, but it was Freebooters who went 1-2 ahead on 80 minutes and they saw out the remainder of the match with some dogged defending, as St Pat’s strove ‘with might and mane’ to get an equaliser, but it wasn’t to be.

It was a great performance from the entire St Pat’s squad and a really determined performance from a fine Freebooter’s team, in what was a very close game.

United had to twice come from behind before seeing off Premier Division rivals St Pats on Sunday. Pat's started well and were good value for the opening goal which arrived on 25 minutes when Mark Delaney slotted home from close range. Crettyard upped the tempo and were deservedly level 5 minutes before the break when Craig Comerford set up Lee Salter for 1-1. The second half saw Pat's on the front foot again, and again Delaney was on the mark to put the visitors 2-1 ahead. United began to pour men forward and eventually the pressure yielded a penalty Johnny Dowling was fouled and although Cristoir Maher saw his spot kick saved Colin Osbourne was on hand to knock in the rebound to level matters again. United began to turn the screw and with St Pats struggling to clear their lines the winner arrived 5 minutes from time. In a move which consisted of about 20 passes the ball eventually ended up in the net through Osbourne for 3-2. Pats did create late chances but couldn't convert and United advance to the quarter finals. Best for Crettyard included Johnny Dowling, Niall Purcell and Jason Enright. St Pat's best were Mark Delaney, Mick Condron and Kelvin Corcoran.

It was a fine team performance from St Pat’s, whilst Baltinglass battled hard they were just overwhelmed on the day but deserve praise for trying to the end.

St Fiacc’s 1

Goals from Conor Clack and Liam Byrne were enough for the hosts to pick up a first league win of the season.

In a tight first half goal scoring chances were scarce. The deadlock was finally broken ten minutes before the break when a neat move down the left wing was started and finished by Clack as he fired Pat’s into a 1-0 half time lead.

Anthony Fitzpatrick was causing the St Pat’s rear-guard plenty of problems in the second half but with 15 minutes left Gearoid Cuddihy created the space for Byrne to pick his spot from the edge of the box and double the lead. The Saints battled to the end but Danny Nolan’s goal late on came too late to affect the outcome as Pat’s claimed the win in the first Graiguecullen derby of the season.

Best for Pat’s were Michael Calvey, Liam Byrne and Jordan Harmon. St Fiacc’s best included Tony Walsh, Anthony Fitzpatrick and Bobby Doyle.
