Dolmen got their Premier Division season off to a winning start, Joe Doran and John Nangle both netted twice as they won by the odd goal in seven.

The visitors got off to the perfect start, Doran netting twice in the first 17 minutes as Dolmen led 2-0. Ballymurphy regrouped and began to get a foothold in the game but it wasn't until five minutes before the break that they reduced the arrears, Thomas Doyle setting up Kevin Foley to score and leave the minimum between the teams at the break.

Ten minutes into the second half the sides were level, Doyle was fouled in the area and Foley netted his second from the spot. Foley then headed an effort off the crossbar before Dolmen struck again, Nangle giving them the lead on 70 minutes. When Nangle netted again with ten minutes remaining it looked like that was it but Ballymurphy found the target again, this time through Thomas Doyle to set up the grandstand finish. The hosts pressed for the final few minutes but despite the pressure they couldn’t break down a resolute Dolmen rear-guard and the visitors claimed the points.

Best for Ballymurphy included Kevin Foley, Anto Jordan and Thomas Doyle.

Harps eased into the second round of the KCLR Shield after this all Premier Division tie.

Harps started the better of the sides and Dylan Walsh almost opened the scoring in the first minute, only a fine save keeping his effort out. Efforts from distance followed from Simon O’Shea and Walsh before Harps eventually opened the scoring midway through the half. Dylan Walsh swung in a corner and Ray Walker got his head on it to put Hanover one up. Celtic’s response was a Danny Thompson shot which was smartly saved by Craig Walker ten minutes before the break.

If the first half was an even affair the second was completely one sided as Harps upped a gear and reaped the rewards. On 55 minutes they netted their second, Ray Walker again using his head to make it 2-0. Ten minutes later the third arrived, Dylan Walsh stealing the ball from a defender 25 yards from goal before curling a beauty into the top corner. Hanover kept pushing and the goals kept coming, Simon O’Shea also finding the top corner from 20 yards with a sweet volley made it 4-0 before quick thinking from Johnny Waters set O’Shea free to slot his second and Harps fifth with two minutes left. Dolmen did find a goal from a corner on 90 minutes but was too little too late for the visitors.

Best for Hanover included Craig Walker, Phil Neenan, Dillon Murphy and Niall Kenny
