carlow cup r3 13/04 20:00
St. Patricks Boys B 3 - 1 Parkville United

Parkville had the ball in the net no fewer than 5 times in this game but in the end only 1 goal counted as Pats B ran out winners. On 4 minutes Nick Nolan had the ball in the back of the net but the goal was ruled out for offside. Joe Sunderland went close on 10 minutes before Jack O'Neill saw his effort wide on 17 minutes. On 25 minutes, Nick Nolan again had the ball in the net, but his effort was ruled offside. Soon after Tom Pollard was put through with an excellent Jamie Walsh ball, but he was pulled back for offside. Parkville finally made the breakthrough when Jack O'Neill scored from outside the box with a long-range effort to the top corner to leave it 0-1to the visitors at half time. The second half continued in the same vein with Parkville constantly attacking. On 60 minutes, Nick Nolan again had the ball in the net and his effort was ruled out for offside. Soon after St Pats were awarded a corner after a breakaway attack and scored from their first effort on target. The following 10 minutes saw Parkville play sluggishly and when a pass was misplaced in midfield, Pats intercepted and played a nice through ball for the striker who scored 2-1 with 20 minutes to go.

For the remainder of the game Parkville laid siege to the Pats goal with Joe Sunderland forcing a good save from the keeper before Jack O'Neill shot from distance and Jamie Farrell saw his effort saved. On 88 mins Parkville were awarded a corner following excellent work by Barry Flynn. Tommy Murphy provided the delivery for Paddy Hickey to drive home the equaliser only for the ref to give a free out. To add insult to injury, with Parkville totally committed in attack, Pats broke away and went up the other end and scored a 3rd. A disappointing day for Parkville who can feel unlucky at having 4 goals disallowed but credit to Pats who were more clinical in front of goal.

Parkville went third in the table after this rout of Celtic on Sunday morning, not close enough to challenge for the title but confirming their status as the best of the rest. TJ Kavanagh had gone close twice early on before Jack O'Neill opening the scoring on 10 minutes with a sweetly struck effort from 18 yards.

That goal arriving after just 7 minutes, TJ Kavanagh supplying the cross for Staunton to head home at the back post. It was half an hour before United created another decent chance, Tom Pollard setting up Staunton but this time his effort was wide of the mark.

Within 5 minutes of the second half Parkville effectively killed the game off. TJ Kavanagh with another assist, this time for Mike Dobosz who slotted home from a tight angle to make it 2-0 within a minute of the restart and shortly afterwards Staunton netted his second and Parkville's third, Cian Doran doing the hard work before teeing up Staunton to slot home.

Eoin Dempsey struck twice in 10 minutes late on to win the game for Parkville as Dolmen slipped to a fifth consecutive defeat in the league to leave them in a battle against the drop. Parkville started well but were twice denied by the woodwork in a goalless first half. Cian Madden was first up to be denied by the goal frame as his header came back off the crossbar on 25 minutes.

It wasn't all one way traffic and Celtic's Joe Doran dragged his effort wide after been put through on goal by Keelan Lacey as the sides went into the break at 0-0. The second half saw Kavanagh fire wide early on before Dolmen took the lead in bizarre fashion.

Parkville United v Burrin Celtic
Kenny wonder goal keeps Burrin Top
U17 League 11/12 14:30
Parkville United 1 - 3 Burrin Celtic

This is always a big local derby between school mates and the rivalry was building all week as Parkville were determined to put a dent in local rival’s title charge. However, it wasn’t to be as Burrin took the three points with a goal worthy of winning any game at any level. Burrin started off the brighter of the two teams getting a very early goal when Glenn O’Rourke followed in a Jack Kenny free kick to score a header and put Burrin 1-0 up very early on. Jack Kenny doubled Burrin’s lead when he ran down the left wing to beat the full back and slot the ball in the bottom right to make it 2-0 after just 15 minutes and the writing looked on the wall for Parkville.

Parkville slowly got into the game as Burrin got lazy and sloppy and really struggled on a pitch that hasn’t seen a lawnmower for a long time and made passing very difficult. The home side got a goal back on the stroke of half time when Oisín Lyons cut in from the left to slot the ball past the Burrin keeper 5 minutes before half time. The score was 2-1 in Burrin’s favour at half time.

Burrin came out to get a third in the second half and just could not take their chances in a one sided half where Parkville struggled to get out of their own half for 45 minutes. Jack Kenny had a couple of free kick’s saved midway through the second half. Both teams battled the majority of the half out with Burrin creating the most chances. Burrin finally got their 3rd goal with 10 minutes left of the game and what a goal it was. Defending a corner Jack Kenny took the ball on the edge of his own penalty box and went on to beat the whole Parkville team by running the full length of the pitch and slotting the ball in the bottom right to seal the victory for Burrin with a simple stunning individual goal where he beat at least 8 players by dribbling past them and invading the tackles. Parkville put in a great performance but Burrin we’re just too strong on the day. Best for Burrin were Jack Kenny, Jimmie Carroll and Evan Corr.

Parkville United 2

Kilree Celtic 3

Parkville lost in the league for the first time this season as Kilree made it 4 wins on the bounce. United were the better side for most of the first half, creating early chances for Nick Nolan and TJ Kavanagh but neither could trouble the Celtic net minder. United continued to probe and deservedly hit the front on the half hour, Tom Pollard cut in off the right wing before firing his effort to the net for the opening goal. Nick Nolan should have added to that but dragged his effort wide as half time approached. The second half saw a huge improvement from Kilree and within 8 minutes of the restart they were level, Peter Abbey teeing up Alan MacDonald to make it 1-1. Kilree's pressure yielded a second goal 15 minutes from time, Peter Abbey making the most of a mix up between two defenders as he picked up a loose ball in the box and his shot on the turn found the top corner. It was 3-1 to the visitors 10 minutes later, Tommy Cummins' header came back off the crossbar, but Abbey was on hand to knock in the rebound. Parkville did pull a goal back through Dylan Sheridan, but it was too little too late as Kilree rise to third in the table rewarding the efforts of Darragh O'Meara, Victor Watkins and Peter Abbey. United's best included Tom Pollard and Dylan Sheridan

Slaney Rovers 4

Parkville United 0

Rovers booked a place in the KCLR Shield Final against New Oak with this win over United. Parkville went into the game as favourites, unbeaten in the league, against a Rovers side whose form had deserted them in recent weeks but as so often happens in Knock out competition, the form book was burnt. United were the better side for most of the first half, but despite piling on the pressure and carving out decent chances, none of Michael Dobosz, Nick Nolan or Jack O'Neill could convert when well placed. With 5 minutes to the break Slaney made them pay for those missed chances, Adam Keogh and Lubohir Lesko combined brilliantly to set up Dominic Byrne and despite loud appeals for offside Byrne kept his cool to fire Rovers into a half time lead. Parkville dominated the early second half exchanges but were denied twice by the goal frame as both Nolan and O'Neill saw efforts come back off the post. With Parkville pressing forward their high defensive line was exposed when Lesko put a simple ball over the top for the on running Adam Keogh to smash home Rovers' second goal just after the hour. 15 minutes later it was 3-0, Conor O'Brien gliding by 3 defenders before picking his spot and leaving Parkville with a mountain to climb. United to their credit kept plugging away but got no joy from a defence led by Regan Murphy. With time almost up Rovers added their fourth, Shane Murphy heading home from a Joe Thompson corner as Slaney eased into the final in bid to win their first Carlow Shield since 2011. Best on the day for Slaney were Paddy Farrell, Mick Foley and Joe Thompson while Michael Dobosz and Jack O'Neill stood out for Parkville.

Nurney started the game very well, passing the ball around and creating themselves lots of space and their possession was rewarded on five minutes, when Oisin Maloney scored from a Ben Smyth cross or 0 – 1.

Ballymurphy had a great win against Parkville, after a few tough weeks, where they had been up against it and this result will hopefully, give them confidence, as the season progresses.

Besides the exploits of the two main goalscorers – best for Ballymurphy were Mike Joyce, Cian Quirke and Conor Coleman. Best for Parkville: Callum Murray and James Boland in midfield.

Parkville United 2

Parkville maintained their impressive start to the league with a third win on the bounce but they had to do it the hard way in Ballymurphy as Celtic led 1-0 at half time. Parkville made the early running, Dylan Sheridan seeing a couple of headers from Tommy Murphy crosses saved by Kyle Foley. Nick Nolan had the ball in the net for Parkville midway through the half but that was ruled marginally offside. Celtic grew more and more into the game and on the stroke of half time they opened the scoring, Lauren Scully supplied the pass for Declan Brennan to glide in behind the United back line and Brennan kept his cool as he slotted home to give Celtic the lead. The second half saw United apply all the pressure and it took barely 10 minutes for it to pay off, Mike Dobosz winning back possession before releasing Nick Nolan on goal to make it 1-1. Dobosz saw another effort chalked off for offside as Parkville pushed for a lead goal and it duly arrived 20 minutes from time, Dobosz again the provider as Nolan netted his and United's second to deservedly put the hosts ahead. Celtic tried to respond with Luke Roache squaring for Declan Brennan but there was too much pace on the cross as it went across the face of goal and away to safety. A thunderous drive from United's Jamie Walsh brought the save of the game from Foley as United looked to extend the lead but it mattered little as Parkville held on to claim the points and keep their 100% record in tact, rewarding the play of Nick Nolan, Jamie Walsh and Mike Dobosz. Best on the day for Celtic were Kyle Foley, Declan Brennan and Michael O'Grady.

Parkville United 5

St Patrick's Boys 2

Parkville ran out easy winners in the end, but it could have been very different had St Pats managed to build on an early 2 goal lead. It all started so well for the visitors; Mark Delaney's corner was headed home by Jake Nolan inside 5 minutes. On 8 minutes it was 2-0, Pat's awarded a penalty after Nathan Doyle was fouled in the area and Delaney converted from the spot. Parkville needed a response, and it came midway through the half, Joe Sunderland's cross knocked in from close range by Michael Dobosz to leave the minimum between the teams. Pats missed a glorious chance to restore their 2-goal advantage, but Enoch Olanase couldn't convert when well-placed and the sides went into the break with Pats holding a slim lead. That slim advantage was gone within 3 minutes of the restart, Dobosz won the ball just outside the Pats area and Jack O'Neill supplied the finish from 25 yards to make it 2-2. Parkville hit the front on the hour, Cain Madden winning possession before laying off to Craig Staunton whose effort took a wicked deflection and looped over a stranded Pat's keeper. The visitors responded well and almost levelled things up but Mark Delaney's header from a corner came back off the crossbar. Parkville made the most of this let off and struck for a fourth with 10 minutes left TJ Kavanagh powering his way through the Pat's backline before firing low inro the corner to make it 4-2. Nick Nolan finished off the scoring late on for United with a neat back heal as the hosts ran out 5-2 winners, rewarding the efforts of Jack O'Neill, Tom Pollard and TJ Kavanagh. Best for St Pat's on the day were Anto Lawlor, Jake Nolan and Dylan Costigan

St. Joseph's FC 0 - 3 Parkville United

St Joseph’s AFC 4 – 1 Parkville Utd AFC

Parkville started the brighter and had the bulk of the possession for the first twenty minutes and Joey’s were confined to occasional long balls into the Parkville half, but it paid off when they scored on twenty minutes.

Thereafter, Joey’s played themselves into the game impressively, netting another goal, after yet another long ball to make it 2-0 and they took that lead into the interval.

After 18 minutes of the second-half Joey’s scored another goal to make the score 3-0, before Parkville’s Nicky Moore got up well to head home a corner, which was some consolation, as it lifted them until the end of the match, however, Joey’s sealed the win with a well worked goal in the last minute, to give Joey’s a very comfortable 4-1 win.

It was a good all-round team performance by Joey’s and man of the match for Parkville was their keeper Matthew Hyde.

Nick Nolan's strike midway through the first half proved enough for United in this derby at Hawkins Lane. The visitors started much the better of the sides, Lubohir Lesko denied a goal on 10 minutes by a last ditch goal line clearance by Dave McCarney. Conor O'Brien was also denied by some solid defending as United weathered an early storm. Towards the end of the first quarter Slaney paid dearly for those missed chances. Eoin Dempsey won possession and fed Jamie Walsh on the overlap, Walsh finding Nick Nolan with a pin point cross for Nolan to finish low into the corner for 1-0. Only an excellent save by Fergal Harmon from Jack O'Neill shortly afterwards prevented United from doubling the lead. The second half was very stop start, free kicks and offsides disrupting the flow of the game. Parkville's Tom Pollard had an effort well saved by Harmon before a tight offside call pulled up Michael Dobosz when he was through on goal on the hour.The introduction of Craig Staunton and TJ Kavanagh gave Parkville fresh legs and when the pair combined on the left, Kavanagh let fly with an audacious shot from 35 yards that just went over the bar. With time running out Slaney's last chance fell to Gareth Doyle but his well struck free kick was brilliantly saved by Sean Tompkins as Parkville held on for a well deserved 3 points. Dave McCarney stood out for United on the day while Slaney were well served by Shane Murphy, Adam Keogh and Mick Foley.

Parkville United AFC 1 – 2 Hanover Harps AFC.

This game turned out to be a very competitive game played in difficult, blustery conditions, with Hanover started the stronger, with their pace causing great difficulty for Parkville, right throughout the match.

Hanover got an early reward, when Andrew Vint got on the end of a corner – kick, to head home and take a 0-1 lead on five minutes and then they won a series of corners and came close to scoring again, but they were off-target.

Cian Ray then went on a mazy run, which ended when he was brought down in the box and the resultant penalty was converted by Ray Darlington, to make it 0-2.

Parkville saw impressive performances from Callum Murray and Paddy O’Byrne, who were operating on the wings to good effect.

Half time came, with Hanover holding on to their 0-2 lead.

To Parkville’s credit they had the better of the second-half, with Nicky Moore and Oran Kirwan ‘bossing’ the midfield and this paid off after only eight minutes, when Niall Kinsella ‘nicked’ the ball off a Hanover defender and played it into space and followed it and he then shot across the Hanover keeper and into the bottom corner of the net, to make the score 1-2.

Kinsella then forced a good save from the Hanover keeper and at this stage Parkville ‘had their tails up’ and were strongly pressing for an equaliser.

Hanover were still threatening ‘on the break’ with their pace, but Matthew Hyde - Parkville’s keeper, was quick off his line to prevent certain scores.

Parkville United v Vale Wanderers
KCLR Shield 05/09 11:00
Parkville United 4 - 1 Vale Wanderers
This last round game for Parkville in the newly revamped shield produced an intriguing scenario as Parkville went into the game knowing they needed to win by two clear goals to go through in place of Vale. The game began frantically and Vale were much the better side in the opening exchanges as they caused Parkville a number of problems with their fluid attacking play before taking a well-deserved lead on 15 minutes and could have been two up but some last ditch defending. Midway through the half Parkville made a quick tactical change and it led to the equaliser when Jamie Walsh broke down the right and combined with Eoin Dempsey and Joe Sunderland to release Craig Staunton who powered home his strike from just inside the penalty box. Shortly after Jamie Walsh was again on hand and he struck a fearsome shot from 25 yards to beat the keeper low and hard to the bottom corner. Parkville tails were up and on the half hour Cian Madden sent an absolute peach of a Crossfield ball to Jack Kennedy who rose highest to power his head back across goal to the top corner. Parkville were in full flow now and Vale just could not live with the pace as Eoin Dempsey ran through the middle of the field to stick an inch perfect ball into Michael Dobosz who expertly dispatched the ball to the bottom corner to give Parkville a 4-1 lead at half time. The second half saw Vale not relent as they tried to get back in the game, but the Parkville rear guard of Dylan Sheridan, Kuba Dobosz and Paddy Hickey were not to be outdone today. Jason Murphy in the goal made some excellent saves and Parkville were ever dangerous on the counterattack but the game finished out at 4-1 to Parkville which saw them through to the quarter final from what proved to be a very difficult group. Best on the day for Parkville were Eoin Dempsey, Craig Staunton, Jamie Walsh and Cian Madden.
