Mill Celtic 1

Mill Celtic travelled to Bagenalstown this morning looking to get back into the winning habit after a poor run of late and as the league table suggested, this would be a tight affair. Town started brilliantly but found it hard to get their shots away. James Lillis and Trevor Nolan both had shots saved from the Mill keeper. Mill did have a few half chances early in the half but nothing to trouble the town keeper. The games sole goal came 5 minutes before half time after what was arguably the best move of the match, Daniel Mackey and Killian Harney Lawler combined to set Scott Keogh down the right wing whose low cross was expertly turned home by Padraig Carmody to put Mill 1 up at the break.

The second half saw both teams struggle to get control in what was a very stop start game. Town’s task became even harder when they were reduced to ten men with half an hour to play. Town had glorious chances late in the second half to equalize as Robbie Kane and Marty Curran saw efforts sail wide. Ultimately this was a game of few chances with Carmody’s goal proving to be the winner.

Best for Mill on the day were Gary Lambe, Conor O Sullivan, and Scott Keogh while best for town were James Hickey, Trevor Nolan and Thomas Kinsella.

Crettyard United B 2 - 2 Mill Celtic

On a wet and winding day that made it challenging for both teams, this was always going to be a game of two halves Crettyard had the wind in the first half and created some good half chances in which Noel Leech scored from one after 20 minutes. Mill began to grow in to the game and started to get a foothold in the midfield and began to apply pressure to the Crettyard defence. This was rewarded when a free kick from Eric Mackey was played back across the six yard box for Dylan Wynne to smartly finish home to make 1-1. It stayed like this until the half time whistle.

For the second half, it was Mill Celtic who had the wind at their backs and they began to boss the open fifteen minutes of the half without creating anything clear cut. With 20 minutes to go, a speculative half volley from Dylan Wynne was spilled into the goal to put Mill 2-1 up. Straight from the restart, Crettyard put a good move together when Noel Leech crossed from the right in which Farrell Cuddihy controlled and finished for a excellent goal to bring it back to 2-2. Conditions began to get really bad and the remaining of the game ended up in a sporting battle with neither side been able to add to the score line. Best for Crettyard were Jonah Kelly, Farrell Cuddihy and Jamie Conway while for Mill Paddy Dunne, Killian Harney and Michael O’Sullivan stood out.

Parkville United B v Mill Celtic
Div One 16/01 11:00
Parkville United B 1 - 3 Mill Celtic

Parkville hosted Mill Celtic in Hawkins Lane this damp Sunday Morning. Mill Celtic started the game very well and their early pressure paid off when Padraig Carmony headed home a Dylan Wynne cross. Parkville woke up and picked up the pace from here. Some nice football saw Barry Flynn through on goal and he slotted the ball away nicely, but a late whistle ruled the goal out for offside. 5 minutes later Andy Madden played a lovely cross to the back post and Barry Flynn again hit the net with a lovely volley but unfortunately for Parkville it was also ruled offside. Mill went 2 nil up when Paul Kirwan finished a great move after half an hour. 7 minutes later Barry Flynn deservedly got his goal when he latched on to another through ball and slotted it into the bottom far corner to make it 1-2. Mill pushed on and Carmony scored again just on the stroke of halftime.

The second half was a much more even affair. On the 60-minute mark, Parkville thought they won a penalty when Jamie Byrne was taken down just inside the box. The decision could have gone either way but the referee awarded a free kick on the 18 yard line which came to nothing. There were no more goals despite some good chances at both ends. Both teams were reduced to ten men 5 minutes from time where it finished 1-3 the final score.

Best for Mill were Paddy Dunne, Paddy Moore and Padraic Carmony while best for Parkville were Martin Fitzgerald, Stephen Hunter and John Murphy.

The second half was much of the same as first with both teams pushing hard to open up the defenses. Eric Mackey, Conor Perse and Daniel Mackey did go close for Mill but that was as good as it got for the hosts. With 15 minutes left on the clock, the first real chance presented itself from a long ball into the Mill box which rebounded around off several defenders to Darragh Kelly who saw his shot saved by Cody Dempsey in the Mill goal and he could only parry it back into the path of Dempsey to tap home to put Crettyard 1 up. Mill responded well and pushed for the equalizer but were not able to breach a stubborn Crettyard defense. 1 nil the game ended. Best for Crettyard we’re John Brennan, Jamie Conway, Keith Purcell while best for Mill were Mikey Sullivan, Paddy Dunne and Eric Mackey

Mill Celtic 3 - 2 St. Joseph's FC
Gary Lambe's second half winner booked Celtic a place in the quarter finals and put paid to Joeys hopes in the process. The game got off to a hectic start with 3 goals in the first 7 minutes. Mill opened the scoring inside 2 minutes from the penalty spot, Kyle Corcoran was fouled, and Harry Kirwan despatched the penalty to put Celtic ahead. That lead was short lived however as Joeys levelled almost immediately, Luke Hutton opening up the hosts defence for Padraig Webb to slot home. The hectic pace continued as Celtic regained the lead, Gary Lambe getting his first of the day as he turned a Brian Mackey corner into the net. All this with only 7 minutes on the clock. With no sign of the pace slowing down Joeys were level again midway through the half, Hutton again the provider as Robert Timmons neatly finished as the sides went into the break tied 2-2. The second period saw the teams exchange missed opportunities before Mill struck the decisive blow with 20 minutes left. Dylan Wynne's cross found the head of Lambe and he made no mistake as he again put Celtic ahead.

Best for St Josephs were Robert Timmons, Jack Murphy and Padraig Webb.

Dylan Wynne's first half strike was enough to earn Celtic the points and move them top of Group B, a win in their last game would see them through to the quarter finals. Bagenalstown started well enough but couldn't turn possession into goals, the couple of half chances they did create were easily dealt with by Harry Kirwan in the Celtic goal. As Mill grew into the game they started posing questions of the 'Town backline, Euan Cullan flashed an effort just wide when well-placed but that let off was short lived for the hosts as Wynne ran through on goal before neatly slotting home 10 minutes before the break. Bagenalstown responded well in the second half as they pushed hard for an equaliser but the closest, they came was when Cormac Lomax saw his effort from the edge of the box narrowly go over the bar. Celtic had chances to double the advantage, but Brian Mackey and Kyle Corcoran's efforts were well saved. The chances of a Bagenalstown leveller reduced further 10 minutes from time when they lost a man to a red card and Celtic comfortably held on for the win thanks largely to the efforts of Kirwan, Dylan Berry and Paddy Moore. Bagenalstown’s best were Robbie Kane, Cormac Lomax and Darren Crooks.

Mill Celtic made their final home game of the season a winning one with this victory over the Carlow town side.

The early exchanges were quite tense with neither side threatening. The visitors broke the deadlock with a long ball over the top by Gary Murphy which allowed Martin to race in behind and lob over the advancing Harry Kirwan. The home side created a number of chances through Dylan Wynne, Brian Malone and Shane Molloy but they could find the net with their respective efforts.

The second half began with Mill looking like a team on a mission and their fast start was rewarded after 52 minutes when a long raking pass from Gary Lambe found Daniel Mackey who in turned played through Wynne to slot home the equaliser. With the Mill back four being resolute at the back the same two players combined for Wynne to grab his second with a superb finish on 64 minutes. Daniel O’Boyle was denied by a great save by Kirwan that kept the home side in command and the game was wrapped up with ten minutes to go when Andrew Baldwin grabbed a deserved goal after the Rangers keeper spilled a Brian Mackey free kick.

Best for Mill on the day were Gary Lambe, Brian Malone and Dylan Wynne. For Castle Cian Connolly, Mick McGrath and Alan Butler stood out.

Mill started the game with the wind in their backs and played some lovely football in the opening exchanges.

It took until the half hour to break the deadlock when a Deirbhle Byrne corner caused panic in the Killeshin box and eventually Rachael Fennin slotted home from close range. The second came shortly after with good work from Pam and Megan Grufferty slipped in Nicole Heaney and her first time cross found Mag Nolan at the back post.

The second half was evenly contested until 20 minutes from time when Catherine Dempsey broke the offside trap and chipped the advancing keeper. Dempsey would soon have her second when she tapped home a Fennin cross. Killeshin got a deserved consolation late on when Aoife O’Rourke found the net to reward the efforts of Sophia Hade and Fiona Culleton while Donna Corcoran, Shona Fagan, Ash Woods and Emma Dunne impressed for the winners.

A share of the points was a fair result after this entertaining encounter in Crettyard on Sunday.

The visitors dominated the majority of the first half possession but failed to capitalise in front of goal. They were hit with a sucker punch when the home side broke up field and Shane Buggy rounded the keeper to put the Laois side ahead at the break.

The second half began in a similar fashion to the first with the Kildare side creating countless opportunities but again it was Crettyard who doubled their lead when Shane Buggy grabbed his second goal to make it 2-0. The Ballitore side got back into the game when Aaron Kennedy fired home from the penalty spot on 79 minutes after David Howe was fouled. Their never say die attitude was rewarded when Andrew Baldwin powered home a header from a Brian Malone cross in the last ten minutes.

Best for Crettyard were Shane Buggy, James Sherwood and Jimmy Dunne. Outstanding for Mill in a great team performance were Andrew Baldwin, Shane Molloy, and Aaron Kennedy.

A top of the table clash played in perfect conditions produced a game of few chances as neither team gave an inch throughout the 90 minutes.

With Hanover missing so many influential players a long ball game exploiting the pace of Steph Kehoe, Lauren McGrath and Rachael Whelan would prove to be their best outlet and this nearly paid dividends on 28 minutes when Kelly Nolan found Kehoe and her square ball just eluded Whelan at the back post.

Mill started the second half the better and pressured the Hanover penalty area but Kelly Nolan and Marie Hynes stood firm. On 70 minutes Hanover probably should have broken the deadlock when Rachael Whelan headed Steph Kehoe’s corner straight at the Mill keeper from six yards. Two minutes later a mazy Deirbhle Byrne run resulted in a penalty being awarded to Mill but the usually reliable Catherine Dempsey blazed over. Mill should have collected the three points late on when Dempsey’s cross was somehow missed at the back post by Megan Grufferty.

Best for Mill were Chloe Foy, Muireann Fagan and Laura Fennin while Becky Walsh, Andrea Jeaney, Marie Hynes and the impressive Kelly Nolan impressed for Harps.

The home side started well and TJ Kavanagh put Brian Byrne through on goal but the Mill keeper made a fine save. The visitors settled and opened the scoring on 15 minutes when Daniel Mackey put in Euan Cullen who rounded the keeper and slotted home. At the other end Sean Maher and Brian Byrne combined to set up David Orbinski but his effort was turned around the post for a corner. Celtic were more clinical when Fionn O’Rourke found Eoin O’Neill and he doubled their lead before the break.

Parkville started the second half the better with Matt Decaux dominating midfield. Brian Byrne and David Orbinski forced a couple of good saves from impressive Mill keeper Harry Kirwan. The Kildare side made the game save on 58 minutes when Eoin O’Neill raced onto a through ball from Brian Malone and chipped the onrushing Parkville goalkeeper. TJ Kavanagh saw his well struck shot just wide on 70 minutes and as they pushed on Mill capitalised on the counter and Malone scored his second to seal victory.

Two of the big three would go toe to toe in this quarter final in Kilkenny on Sunday afternoon.

Mill continued to give everything they could to make things difficult for their visitors but Crettyard made it 3-0 in the dying minutes when Even Phillips’ well delivered corner was pounced on by the returning Aaron Morris to see them through to the last eight.
