St Fiacc's FC 2 - 7 Dolmen Celtic

St Fiaccs 2

Dolmen Celtic 7

Dolmen Celtic produced the result of the round to book a place in the last 8. If the result against their Premier Division rivals wasn't a total shock the 5-goal margin was. Joe Lea got the show on the road for Celtic when opened the score with a shot from 18 yards for 1-0. It was 2-0 on 13 minutes after Danny Thompson was hauled down for a penalty which Conor Byrne converted. Another foul on Thompson yielded another spot kick, again converted by Byrne and on 35 minutes the win was as good as sealed when Thompson got on the score sheet to make it 4-0. Fiaccs pulled a goal back just on half time to give themselves something to fight for in the second half. That hope was short lived however as Thompson netted his second on 50 minutes for 5-1. On the hour mark it was 6-1 when Joe Lea netted his second and shortly afterwards Lea completed his hat trick before Fiaccs netted a late consolation. Best for Dolmen was Joe Lea, Evan Ruddy and Patrick O'Brien.

Dolmen Celtic 2

Baltinglass Town 4

Dolmen suffered their first defeat of the season when Baltinglass ended their unbeaten run in Carlow on Sunday.

The home side got off to a flyer when John Nangle converted a Colin Nolan cross on ten minutes. Celtic continued to dominate and some neat play between Nangle and Joe Lea resulted in Lea firing home on 20 minutes. Balto responded almost immediately when Sean Horan finished to the net following some good football. They were on level terms just before the break when Thomas Fogarty was fouled in the penalty area and Gareth Doyle converted the spot kick.

The Wicklow side started the second half on the up and were awarded a second penalty for a hand ball incident. Gareth Doyle was again entrusted with the spot kick duties and he duly obliged to make it 3-2 on 55 minutes. The Carlow town side clawed their way back into the game and Paul Core and Danny Thompson went close to level matters. However, Dolmen conceded a third penalty for another hand ball and Doyle completed his unique hat-trick when slotting home the spot kick on 62 minutes. On 80 minutes it was Celtic’s turn to be awarded a penalty but Danny Thompson was denied by a great save from Paddy Cronin.

Best for the winners were Dan Fogarty, Thomas Redmond and Paddy Cronin while Owen O’Gorman and John Nangle tried hard for Celtic.

Collinstown FC 2

Dolmen put on a great display despite going to top Dublin side Collinstown in the Vocational School on Sunday.

Both sides had chances early on with Danny Thompson going close and Jamie Hennessy on top form to deny the visitors. However, he could do little about the goal that put the Dublin side ahead following a corner. The Carlow side responded positively and following good play between Joe Lea and Coakley, Thompson was fouled in the box and Paul Core saw his penalty saved.

Dolmen came out flying in second half and kept up the great pressure with Paul Core going close. Thompson was again causing problems and he got a second penalty when he was brought down in the box. He picked himself up and slotted home the spot kick on 60 minutes. Both sides went in search of the winner and again Hennessy was called into action to deny the visitors. Just as the game was heading for extra time Collinstown came up with the winner when a tremendous strike eventually beat the gallant Hennessy to see them through.

Best for a gallant Dolmen were Jamie Hennessy, Paul Core and Niall Davis.

Dolmen Celtic got back to winning ways when they defeated their neighbours New Oak in this local derby on Sunday.

Both sides cancelled each other out in the early exchanges. The visitor’s goalie was busiest, and he denied Celtic on a couple of occasions. The home side made the breakthrough when a one two between Joe Lea and Paul Core resulted in Core being fouled in the box. Conor Byrne stepped up and slotted the spot kick home on 20 minutes. They continued dominate and Danny Thompson crossed for John Nangle to head home on 25 minutes. New Oak tried hard to get back into the game but were kept at bay by some solid defending.

The second half was much the same as the first with Dolmen on the attack with Lea, Core and Thompson in brilliant form. After spurning a new of chances Danny Thompson latched onto a through ball and slotted home to wrap up the points.

Best for the winners were Conor Byrne, Niall Davis and Joe Lea.
