Hanover Harps v Burrin Celtic

Hanover Harps 6 - 1 Burrin Celtic

Hanover Harps 6

Burrin Celtic 1

Hanover dominated from the start and should have scored early on through Johnny Waters and Mark Kelly who both missed good chances. They were punished when Connor Quinn scored on 15 minutes after good work by Liam Brennan. Hanover woke up and responded quickly when Mark Kelly scored a 20-minute hat trick to give the hosts a 3-1 lead at the break.

It was all one-way traffic in the second half with goals from Jonathan Waters, Shane Kelly and the ever-young Patrick Dowling scoring a 25-yard belter in the top corner to leave the Premier side easy winners and setting up a home semi-final against St Pat’s Boys.

Best for Hanover were Aaron Kinsella, Dylan Walsh, Aaron Wynne and Mark Kelly. Best for Burrin were Jimmy Nolan, Johnny Nolan and Ross Nolan.

Burrin Celtic 3 - 2 Killeshin FC

Burrin Celtic 3

Killeshin FC 2

For the first thirty minutes of this game neither team produced any clear-cut chances with Killeshin being the more dominant, but they didn’t take advantage of their dominance.

Killeshin’s Evan Treacy worked hard on the left wing, providing a number of fine crosses into Burrin’s penalty area, but none were converted. That all changed on 33 minutes, when Burrin made Killeshin pay for their lack of finishing, as a fine team move ended up with Adam Nolan breaking the deadlock when he shot home for a 1-0 score line. On thirty minutes an unstoppable shot from all of 30 yards by Killeshin’s Jack Brennan levelled the scores at 1-1 and that was the score at the interval.

Burrin got off to a great start in the second half as Dan Smyth beautifully lobbed the Killeshin keeper to put them into a 2-1 lead and fifteen minutes later Burrin scored again after some great link-up play saw Scott Treacy finish well to make it 3-1. Daniel Core got Killeshin’s second, with only twenty minutes to go to make the score 3-2 and whilst they pushed hard until the end, some strong defending by Burrin kept them out. Both teams put in great performances, but Burrin just about edged it and deserved their 3-2 victory.

It was an overall team effort from Burrin and standing out for Killeshin were Kealum Hand, Lee Nolan and Evan Tracey.

Burrin Celtic 2 - 3 Newbridge town u17

Burrin Celtic 2

Newbridge Town 3

Newbridge started this game much the better moving the ball around really well and they took a 0 -1 lead on eighteen minutes through a fine solo effort by Kieran Oitegu and it was well deserved.

Burrin’s heads didn’t drop and they kept battling and equalised on the 30-minute mark after a lovely link-up between Dan Smyth and Adam Nolan with Nolan finishing well as the Newbridge keeper advanced to make it 1-1. Just five minutes later Newbridge restored their lead to 1-2 when Joe Mills finished well from just inside the box and that was the score at half-time.

Newbridge started the second half with real purpose and within five minutes they had their third goal when Sean Donoghue was found unmarked at the back post and he easily converted to make the score 1-3. Still Burrin didn’t give up and stayed battling and creating chances but they couldn’t convert any of them however with only 15 minutes to go Jamie Behan scored to take Burrin to within one goal of Newbridge at 2-3. Burrin kept pressing right until the final whistle trying to get that elusive equaliser but it wasn’t to be as Newbridge go forward to the next round which on balance, they deserve to with that narrow 2-3 victory.

It was a well-drilled team performance from Newbridge, whilst for Burrin Eamonn Lawlor, Scott Treacy and Eoin Kavanagh stood out and impressed.

Vale Wanderers B v Burrin Celtic
Div Two 12/01 11:00
Vale Wanderers B 2 - 3 Burrin Celtic

Vale Wanderers 2

Burrin Celtic 3

Burrin edged this six-pointer claiming the win.

Vale started slow and found themselves behind after just two minutes when some good passing by Burrin allowed them to play Michael O’Leary through and he slipped the ball past the keeper. Vale responded well and after 15 minutes Sean Taylor played Conor Byrne in and he levelled from close range. It took a deflection to produce the next goal, the Vale defender cleared the ball but it struck the back of Conor Quinn and the ball looped into the corner of the Vale net. Conor Byrne scored again from a Geoffrey Doran pass.

Vale made some changes at half time and they seemed to work as they dominated the second half but they failed to convert a number of fine chances with the Burrin keeper in fine form. With only minutes left in the match, Burrin would get another stroke of luck, a long ball forward was met with a header from a Vale defender. However, it hit the knee of another player and fell lovely into the path of O’Leary who raced through to place the ball past the keeper and give Burrin all three points.

Best for Vale on a disappointing afternoon were Pat Meaney, Ceilum Darcy and Conor
