Baltinglass Town are through to the semi-finals after beating Castle Rangers in a tight contest in Parkmore.

The home side hadn’t won a game in the league but they were up for this game and they nearly took the lead when Declan Jones fired in a powerful shot which struck off the crossbar. Jones did get the first goal for Balto as his shot deflected off a Castle Rangers defender and into the net. Baltinglass kept the visitors at bay until the break as they went in 1-0 ahead.

There looked to be a shock on the cards as Baltinglass pushed on for their second and they got it when Jones beat two defenders and finished into the bottom corner for his second of the game. Castle Rangers got back into it with a goal but Baltinglass made it 3-1 when Declan Faulkner finished off from a narrow angle as they clinched the game.

Best for the victors were Noel Phelan, Alan Roberts and Paddy Sinnott.

Baltinglass had a poor day at the office as they shipped eight goals against a rampant Burrin team, who played well throughout the whole game and in return they only managed to get two goals in reply, as Burrin dominated the match, particularly, when Baltinglass visibly tired.

It was a great, hard-working team effort from Burrin, whilst standing out for Baltinglass were Declan Jones, Aidan Gannon and James Gahan

This was a very entertaining game in the Plots on Sunday morning despite the conditions.

With goal chances at a premium in the first half it was the visitors who struck first when Shane Lennon fired home from long range. The home side were level when they were awarded a penalty for a handball which resulted in a red card for Town. David Dunne made no mistake from the spot to leave the score 1-1 at the break.

Both sides put in good shift in the second half and the Carlow town side took the lead on 65 minutes when Johny Waters fired home a Chris Fingleton cross. However, the Wicklow side levelled matters again on 70 minutes when Darragh Whelan scored following a corner kick to set up a grand stand finale. With seven minutes remaining Stuart Connolly popped up to head home from close range to secure all three points for Hanover.

Best for Harps were Dylan Delaney, Vincent Oba, Shane Kelly and Chris Fingleton while Paul Redmond, Gaz Doyle and Darragh Whelan stood out for Baltinglass.

Baltinglass started the better and dominated possession and they came close to opening the scoring when James Gahan smacked a shot against the crossbar, but following a long kick-out from the Rangers keeper, Ebbie Nolan latched on to the ball and steered it past the Baltinglass keeper for 0-1.

Rangers came more into the game and on 22 minutes a Johnny Farrell pass released Ebbie Nolan and put it into the net very deftly, with the outside of his boot for 0-2.

Baltinglass pulled a goal back when Paudie Swinburn coolly slotted home a penalty for 1-2, after a handball and that was the score at the interval.

Baltinglass again started the half well, with Rangers playing on the counter attack and Rangers Brian Pearson latched on to a mistake in the Baltinglass defence to make it 1-3, but Baltinglass grabbed another goal on 55 minutes, when Declan Faulkner poked home a long throw for 2-3. On 57 minutes, a great pass by Patrick O’Neill set up Paul Core who finished beautifully for 2-4 to Rangers and a comfortable lead and they weren’t finished as five minutes from the end a quickly taken free-kick by Paul Core enabled Brian Pearson to run past a static defence to score his second and make the final score 2-5.

Best for Baltinglass were Paddy Sinnott, Alan Roberts and Paudie Swinburn, whilst standing out for Rangers were Johnny Farrell, Paul Core and Patrick O’Neill.

A share of the points was a fair result in this Division One encounter at a damp Parkmore on Sunday morning.

The game got off to a hectic start with both teams struggling to set the pace. New Oak got a handle on the game after ten minutes with James White battling hard in midfield. His through ball to Paddy O’Brien saw a cross to Darren McGuill who was unlucky to have his strike ruled out for offside. White was wreaking havoc with his throw balls and the Baltinglass keeper had to pull off a late fingertip save to prevent a defensive header from going past him. Tom Collins crossed in the resulting corner and O'Brien again made a nuisance of himself but could not steer his header into the net. Dale Lacey and Paul Stynes linked up in the New Oak midfield to create some superb chances. The Carlow town side were awarded a free kick from 25 yards out and Dale Lacey stuck the ball in front of James White who shrugged off three defenders and stuck the ball in the net. Moments later Paul Stynes was put through on goal and attempted to lob the Baltinglass keeper but his shot hit the underside of the crossbar and back in to play. The home side came more into the game and their pressure paid off when a ball dropped on the edge of the 18 yards area and Gaz Doyle smashed a shot into the top corner. Both sides went in search of the winner with McGuill and White going close while Stephen Preston was also denied a chance while at the other end Gaz Doyle and Aaron Lennon saw their efforts just off target. Shammy Doran set Rob Purcell through but the Balto netminder did well to deny his effort before the final whistle.

Best for New Oak on the day were James White, Tom Collins and Zak Yongram while for Baltinglass Shane Lennon, Lorcan Mason and Jason Sinnott starred.

Michael Debosz helped himself to a hat trick as Harps eased into the next round.

There were only five minutes on the clock when Harps opened the scoring, Dobosz teeing up Simon O'Shea to score. Ten minutes later it was 2-0, O'Shea returning the favour for Dobosz to net his first. Baltinglass regrouped but struggled to create clear chances and Harps added a third just before the break when Alan Shaw finished neatly.

The second half saw Harps continue in the same form and ten minutes in they were 4-0 up, O'Shea was hauled down for a penalty which saw the defender get a red card before Phil Neenan scored from the spot. Hanover continued to press and minutes later Shaw grabbed his second and Harps fifth, Stephen Chalton's back heel splitting the defence for Shaw to score from a tight angle. Dobosz added number six on the 70-minute mark, skipping past two defenders before blasting home from 12 yards. If this wasn't bad enough for Town they were reduced to eight players shortly afterwards, Gaz Doyle leaving the field injured and Redmond seeing red for a challenge on Dobosz. The last of the goals arrived five minutes from time when Dobosz completed his hat trick with a tidy finish.

Best for Hanover included Jason Murphy, Eric Dowling, Alan Shaw and Michael Dobosz. Best for Town were Aaron Lennon, Michael Carroll and John Martin.

Baltinglass Town 3

This relegation battle ‘went right down to the wire’, but with good entertaining football Villa had all the early pressure, but against the ‘run of play’ it was Baltinglass who went ahead 0 – 1 on eight minutes.

Villa fought back well and drew level 1-1 on 15 minutes, as Ger Murphy scored after some good play by Barry Mackey and Ivan Keatley made it 2-1, after 25 minutes, with a glancing header from a fine cross by Paul Lawlor and that was the score at the interval.

Villa took control of the game in the second half, and Ger Murphy returned the favour as he set up Barry Mackey to make it 3-1, however, to their credit Baltinglass never gave up and they scored two goals in quick succession to level matters at 3-3, as full-time approached.

But right ‘at the death’ Nigel Byrne put in a good cross and Barry Mackey got on the end of it, to score and make the result 4-3 to Villa, in what was a pulsating game.

Standing out for Villa were Barry Mackey, Jamie Horan and Ger Murphy, whilst it was a hard-working team performance from Baltinglass.
