Mill Celtic entertained local rivals Baltinglass in Ballitore this morning in an early season top of the table clash, with both sides looking to carry on their unbeaten runs.

The home side settled the better with the midfield partnership of Alan Norton and James Fahey imposing themselves in the opening quarter. The opener arrived after 12 minutes when Shane Molloy played a good ball over the top to find Aaron Kennedy and he fired home with the outside of his left foot. Baltinglass to their credit bossed the next ten minutes before Shane Lennon grabbed a deserved equaliser with a perfectly placed free kick from 25 yards. The remainder of the half was an even affair with both sides cancelling each other out and the score remained one all at the break.

Mill started the second half much like they did the first and regained the lead after 54 minutes when Andrew Baldwin found himself one on one with the visiting goalkeeper and calmly slid home. Andrew Baldwin and twin brother James were getting through a mountain of work and their enterprise was rewarded after 60 minutes when a deep cross from the left was met by Aaron Kennedy who thumped a volley home to double Mill’s lead. The game looked safe at this stage but the visitors had other ideas and hauled themselves back into contention with ten minutes to go when another direct free kick by Shane Lennon found the top corner. Mill showed great character to dig in and the back four who were well marshalled by goalkeeper Maher stood firm. The game was finally sealed in the last minute when a throw in from the left was brilliantly flicked on by Eoin O’Neill and the ball found its way to Kennedy who poked home to put the icing on the cake.

Best for the Ballitore men on the day were the Baldwin brothers, Alan Norton and hat-trick hero Kennedy. Best for Baltinglass were Shane Lennon, Steven Heaslip and Ross Nolan.

A share of the points was probably a fair result when Baltinglass entertained neighbours Parkville on Sunday.

Both sides created chances in the early exchanges Jordan West went close for the home side while James Lonergan going close and Cian Madden hitting the post for the visitors. The Wicklow side rode their luck a couple of times when Jason Hunter headed against the crossbar and David Orbinski rattled the sticks soon after with a super strike to leave the half scoreless.

Baltinglass came more into the game in the second half but found Sam Sheridan and Henry Hegarty is fine form at centre back with Anto Moran commanding in the goal. The home side had the ball in the net through Jordan West but it was ruled offside on 60 minutes while Adam Martin was just wide on 70 minutes. Parkville’s Lonergan almost snatched a winner at the death.

Players of note for Baltinglass were Adam Martin Declan Jones and Kevin Osborne. Best for Parkville were Cian Madden, Jason Hunter and Sam Sheridan.

Baltinglass got their new campaign off to a flying start with this emphatic victory at home against Castle.

After a battling first half the home side took the lead when Eoin Gleason fired home on 38 minutes, and they took this lead into the break.

The Wicklow side doubled their lead within three minutes of the restart when Shane Lennon converted a penalty. The Carlow town side were awarded a penalty of their own 15 minutes later, but Jason Sinnott pulled off a great save to deny them. Dylan Gately piled on more misery for Rangers when he slotted home from close range on 70 minutes. Johnny Donegan added another goal shortly after to make it 4-0. Rangers frustrating began to tell, and they conceded another penalty with five minutes to go and Shane Lennon stepped up to score his second goal of the game to put the game to bed.

Best for Balto were Emilio Faulkner, Adam Martin and Jordan West.

St Joseph’s Senior team travelled to Baltinglass for the first round of the Shield Cup.

This was the first outing for the majority of these players in a senior competition outside of Youths football. Despite a nervous start by Joeys it was nip and tuck in the middle of the field with both sides playing attacking football. With chances created at both ends, it was the home team who were to capitalise first. Keeping their heads Joeys started to settle and in the 29th minute were awarded a free kick just outside the box, which was calmly converted by Evan McGuire to level the game. A much-needed confidence booster for the visitors saw them continue to press and a cross by Dylan McDermott into the home team’s box was deflected into the net leave Joeys 2-1 up at half time.

Baltinglass started strongly in the second half and it wasn’t long till they found the equaliser. The home team started to take control of the game, but on a counter-attack Kit Gaffney found Dylan McDermott, who received the ball inside the box, and he slotted it into the bottom left to put the visitors back on top. Joeys, who fought hard for 15 minutes to hold onto this lead were soon broken down and the game was level once again. With tired legs Joeys were under constant pressure for the last 15 minutes and eventually the experience of the home team proved too much and they added two more to their tally leaving the final score 5-3.

A great debut for this young team and a great performance by all.
