St Fiacc's FC 1 - 4 Parkville United

St Fiacc’s 1

Parkville United 4

Parkville recovered from the concession of a second minute goal to run out comfortable winners in the Presentation College.

The hosts got off to the perfect start as Ricky Lawlor headed home Dale Byrne’s corner after just two minutes. United regrouped and were level on 15 minutes when Mark Morrissey set Paul Fitzgerald through on goal and he kept his composure to calmly lob the keeper for 1-1. Ten minutes later it was 2-1 to the visitors, Morrissey again the provider for Fitzgerald, and again he kept his cool to lift the ball over the advancing net minder. Matthew Power and James Hickey both spurned chances to equalise for the hosts before United struck for a third, this time Morrissey setting up Fitzgerald to fire Parkville into a 3-1 half time lead.

The second half saw Fiacc’s push hard to find a way back into the game but despite creating chances for Ross Hennessey, Wayne Humphries and Roy Culleton they couldn’t turn possession into scores and United had the last word late on when Kevin McCarney was felled in the box and Graham Byrne converted the penalty to cap a fine team performance from United.

Best for Fiacc’s included James Hickey, Roy Culleton, Ross Hennessey and Davy Hurley.

Killeshin/Hanover FC v Parkville United

Killeshin/Hanover FC 2 - 2 Parkville United

Killeshin/Hanover 2

Parkville United 2

Killeshin/Hanover started the game very slowly and it was no surprise, for them to find themselves 0-1 down on ten minutes as the prolific Craig Staunton, reacted the quickest to Sean Treacy’s blocked shot and slip the ball into the net.

On thirty minutes an unbelievable tackle by Adam Nolan, deep in his own half, won the ball and that sparked off a six-man move that was finished off by Ben Dorgan, what was a fine flowing move that levelled the score at 1-1.

Killeshin/Hanover shuffled the pack at the interval and started the second-half on the front foot and Kaelum Hand forced the Parkville into a fine save, but Parkville couldn’t clear their lines and Killeshin/Hanover won a free-kick on the edge of the box, as Evan Treacy was bundled over. Shane Murphy’s delightful free-kick found the head of Ben Dorgan, who headed home emphatically, for his brace and a 2-1 lead to Killeshin/Hanover. Parkville reacted well to this set-back and started to dominate the game, but some resilient defending by Killeshin/Hanover kept them at bay. Fifteen minutes from the end Parkville got an equaliser from another fine free-kick by Sean Tracey that was again met by the head of Craig Staunton, for his brace and a 2-2 score line. Parkville won a penalty, but Sean Dollard made a great save to keep it out and then Killeshin/Hanover’s Shane Murphy got through one on one with the Parkville keeper, but he shot straight at him and the chance went abegging and it ended up 2-2, which was a fair result overall.

Best for Killeshin/Hanover were Evan Treacy, Bill Fitzgerald, Mikey Dempsey and the imperious Adam Nolan, whilst standing out for Parkville were Jack O’Neill, Craig Staunton and Adam Byrne.

New Oak Boys 1 - 1 Parkville United

New Oak Boys 1

Parkville United 1

League leaders New Oak blew another chance to open a big gap at the top of the table as Chris Sutton’s late strike earned a point for United.

Despite New Oak having the lion’s share of possession in a goalless first half it was the visitors that created the best chances. Conor McCarney and Paul Fitzgerald both having good chances saved before the break.

The second half was much the same with The Boys on the front foot and eventually they made it tell when Cathal Gaffney finished a pin point Dean Kelly free kick to the net on the hour. Griffin Kennedy had a shot well saved as United went in search of an equaliser and with ten minutes left it arrived, Sutton, only on the pitch a matter of minutes when he volleyed home from Graham Byrne’s free kick to take a point and hand the advantage in the title race to Crettyard.

Best for the hosts were Lee Murphy, Conor Byrne and Dean Kelly while Parkville will take encouragement from a solid team performance.

Parkville United 2 - 4 Crettyard United

Parkville United 2

Crettyard United 4

This was an entertaining encounter in Hawkins Lane on Sunday between two of the heavyweights of the women’s game.

Crettyard started much the brighter and on ten minutes a ball over the top released Aisling Behan from the half way line and once through on goal made no mistake as she finished to the bottom corner. Parkville were straight back into the match when an Elaine Kavanagh corner was latched onto by Nicole Heeney, she fought off the Cretty back line to find Louise Carton who powered it home. Crettyard kept their heads and pushed on looking for another goal before the half. Deirdre O’Shea who caused problems on the wing all day crossed in a great ball to Behan who was waiting patiently however the Parkville defender headed it home making it 2-1 at the half.

Crettyard once again started the half much the brighter and soon had a two goal cushion when Behan ran towards goal, drew the keeper before squaring the ball to Chloe Ryan who made no mistake. Crettyard were out of sight when Suzanne Meagher slotted home their fourth goal. Parkville, who kept fighting got a goal back when Kim Nolan found Leanne Tumelty who finished brilliantly.

Best for Parkville, Ciara Nolan, Nicole Heeney, and Celine Slye and Karen Jones while impressive for the winners were Marie and Suzanne Meagher and Chloe Ryan.

Forth Celtic v Parkville United

Forth Celtic 2 - 1 Parkville United

Forth Celtic 2

Parkville United 1

Parkville started off the better of the two sides and had early chances through Mark Morrissey and Kevin McCarney. Ciaran Smithers was also unlucky to see a couple of half chances go a begging. Forth took the lead just before the break, punishing a stray pass from the Parkville defender.

Forth doubled their lead early in the second half but created little after that with Parkville laying siege to the host’s goal. Robbie Sheridan had Park’s first effort of the half. His powerful volley was tipped over the bar by the keeper. Conor and Kevin McCarney were starting to find space in behind the forth defence. Chance after chance went unconverted, before Conor McCarney found Mark Morrissey to finish home. Forth had two excellent chances saved by Andy O’Brien before Park took control again. Park’s best chances came from a penalty in the last minute. With the ball destined for the top corner, the keeper somehow palmed it away to deny Park a deserved equaliser.

Parkville United 1 - 0 Crettyard United

Parkville United 1

Crettyard United 0

Parkville started the game strongly and they made a couple of chances early on, but they were spurned.

It took almost thirty minutes to break the deadlock, as Parkville won a corner and lee Nolan put in a lovely cross into the Crettyard six-yard box, where it was nicely put home by Dylan Sheridan for 1-0. Parkville kept up constant pressure on Crettyard who had to rely solely on counter-attacks and whilst they were quick on the counter, they couldn’t penetrate the Parkville defence. The interval came with Parkville still retaining their slender 1-0 lead.

Crettyard changed tactics for the second-half, as they played a much higher, more attacking line and following a goalmouth scramble they nearly scraped the equaliser, but they just couldn’t find that elusive finishing touch. Parkville were quick to react, as they made some changes to their personnel and line-up and one of those changes was Jake Hickey, who almost scored with his first touch, but the ball got stuck between his feet and the chance went a begging. Parkville kept pressing but they were thwarted by the Crettyard keeper, who made a number of great saves to keep the Parkville attackers at bay. The last quarter was end to end exciting football, but there were no more goals to be had and the game ended with a victory for Parkville, courtesy of that single goal, but with Parkville’s unbeaten home run still intact.

Best for Parkville were lee Nolan, Dylan Sheridan, David Babinski and Adam Byrne, whilst it was a battling performance from Crettyard.

Parkville United v Ballymurphy Celtic

Parkville United 4 - 1 Ballymurphy Celtic

Parkville United 4

Ballymurphy Celtic 1

United claimed the points on Sunday as they comfortably saw off the challenge of Celtic, all the goals in this game coming in a fast paced first half.

The hosts opened the scoring from the penalty spot on ten minutes when Paul Fitzgerald was hauled down in the area, Fitzgerald picking himself up before converting from 12 yards. That lead lasted only six minutes however as Celtic hit back, Thomas Doyle setting up Luke Roche to level matters. Parkville’s response was almost immediate, Robbie Byrne curling a free kick from just outside the box into the top corner. United pinned Celtic back and were rewarded with a third on the half hour mark, Fitzgerald turned provider for Conor McCarney to make it 3-1. United kept pressing and with five minutes left to the break it was 4-1. Dave McCarney set Fitzgerald trough on goal and as the keeper raced off his line Fitzgerald calmly lifted the ball over his head and into an empty net to put Parkville in total control at the interval.

The second half was a much quieter affair with United content to control proceedings with possession football and Celtic lacking the cutting edge in front of goal to them when a rare chance did come their way. Only a Dara Tobin effort on 70 minutes testing the United keeper as the game petered out to a quiet ending.

Parkville will be happy with a solid team performance, particularly in the first half. Impressing for a below par Celtic were James Kelly, Dara Tobin and Mikey Whelan.

Burrin Celtic 2 - 5 Parkville United

Burrin Celtic 2

Parkville United 5

Burrin started off the game by far the better side and they went 2-0 up inside fifteen minutes with a goal direct from a free-kick and they then took advantage of a defensive error in Parkville’s defence in what was a fine start to the game.

Parkville eventually worked their way back into the game with a goal from Sean Tracey for 2-1 and then they got an equaliser, with a well worked goal, as Kyle Byrne squared the ball to his namesake Luke Byrne to score and level the scores at 2-2 and that was the score at the interval.

Parkville found their rhythm and started to take control of proceedings and after good work on the right from Jake Hickey, played in Sean Tracey, who cut inside and scored his second of the game and a 2-3 score line. Right on the hour mark Parkville made it 2-4 as lee Nolan won the ball back from a Burrin defender and played in a great cross to Kyle Byrne who volleyed home with aplomb. The game was wrapped up when after a Burrin corner Parkville quickly counter-attacked and Lee Nolan was free in on the Burrin keeper and his resultant shot was parried into the path of Craig Staunton who kept his cool and calmly put the ball into the net for 2-5 for a comprehensive and deserved win which keeps them top of the table.

Standing out for Parkville were Luke Byrne, Craig Staunton, Jack O’Neill and Sean Tracey, whilst it was a battling performance from an outclassed Burrin team.
