Match Photographs

St Joseph’s 1 3 Burrin Celtic

St Josephs hosted Burrin Celtic on Friday, in the third match for each side the season.

Celtic started the brighter though it took time to come to terms with the hard ground and slick surface which led to a very rusty start for both sides. Following several squandered chances in front of goal the visitors broke the deadlock with a through ball splitting the back line that was well finished by striker Vincent Butler. Both sides had opportunities to score before the interval but no one could seem to capitalise. With the home team tight on numbers, Burrin Celtic rotated well to freshen up the team the start of the second-half. After a run of five corners in 10 minutes the pressure was mounting and Burrin finally increased their lead when Richie Sinnott headed home from close range. With 10 minutes remaining Stephen O’Neill scored from a long range effort to solidify the visitors lead, taking advantage of the wet surface. From this point the game was pretty much settled although Saint Josephs never gave up and got one back in the last minute when Striker Zydraunas finished well from the edge of the box to boost the home team before the final whistle. All in all, Burrin Celtic deserved the victory but the home team never gave up and deserved the consolation at the end. Best for Joeys were Ray Byrne, a last minute draft in keeper wearing the gloves for the 1st time, and Barry Purcell who tested the opposition defence throughout.

St. Joseph's FC v Hanover Harps
KCLR Shield 08/09 18:30
St. Joseph's FC 0 - 0 Hanover Harps

St Josephs welcomed Premier opposition to McArdle Cross for a midweek evening kick off, to accommodate Hanover Harps outing in the FAI Junior Cup. A very well organised, disciplined and hardworking St. Josephs side who defended excellently when needed and caused danger when going forward came away with a very well-deserved point to conclude their KCLR Shield campaign. A large crowd generated a fantastic atmosphere while a great game of top-quality football unfolded. Both Dean Davis and Kieran Carey causing problems for the Hanover defence but couldn't find the net. Padraig Webb came closest in the first half with a free kick from outside the box. Hanover were a threat from long throw ins and corners, but St. Joseph's defended excellently. Both Jamie Stafford and Robert Timmons attacking and defending the flanks excellently all game, while Evan McGuire controlled the midfield with tackles, passes and clever play. Fredo Eyong came closest for St Joseph's on the 80th minute as he counter attacked and found himself one on one with the Hanover keeper outside the box, a lobbed shot over the keeper went agonisingly wide. That was the chance of the game.

A well-deserved clean sheet for Ross Mannion in goal as he made two big saves in the second half to deny Hanover. A man of the match performance from the young, passionate, and very talented Jack Lawlor in the heart of the Joeys defence as he marshalled and organised the back line all game. Overall, a great performance from St. Joseph's, as they now prepare for their upcoming league campaign.

Mill Celtic v St. Joseph's FC
KCLR Shield 05/09 11:00
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. There was still plenty of time left for Joeys but a combination of good goal keeping from Paddy Moore and solid defending saw Mill through to the knockout stages and reward the efforts of Paddy Dunne, Eric Mackey and Brian Mackey. Best for St Josephs were Robert Timmons, Jack Murphy and Padraig Webb.

St. Joseph's FC 4 - 1 Bagenalstown AFC
Tom Mitchell hit a hat trick as St Josephs bounced back from last weekend’s defeat to Dolmen to get their Shield campaign up and running against Bagenalstown. Mitchell opened the scoring on 10 minutes when his neat shot on the turn found the net. Bagenalstown travelled light on numbers and when they lost Ryan Lundy to injury, they had to play the rest of the game with 10 men. Dean Davis almost doubled the advantage, but his well struck effort came back off the crossbar. 'Town made light of the numerical disadvantage as they levelled matters on the half hour, Paddy O'Brien was fouled in the penalty area and Trevor Nolan duly despatched the spot kick for 1-1. Joeys got their noses back in front just before the break, Luke Hutton providing the assist as Mitchell's low strike zipped into the corner. Bagenalstown began the second half well but despite plenty of possession they couldn't find an equaliser and with 15 minutes left the hosts struck again. Robert Timmons went on a run down the wing before crossing perfectly for Mitchell to complete his hat trick. With tiredness creeping into the Bagenalstown side it was St Josephs that finished the stronger with Jack Lawlor setting up Padraig Webb to curl a beauty into the top corner from the edge of the box to make it 4-1 as Joeys ran out comfortable winners in the end thanks to a solid team performance. Best for Bagenalstown included Paddy O'Brien, Robbie Kane, and Sean McDermott

Dolmen Celtic v St. Joseph's FC
KCLR Shield 15/08 11:00
Dolmen Celtic 8 - 4 St. Joseph's FC
In the first fixture in group B of the Carlow shield Dolmen took on a very youthful St. Joseph's side. Dolmen got off to a shaky start and St. Joseph's took advantage, with all the pressure forced a mistake from the dolmen defence causing a penalty to be awarded and the St. Joseph's player Padraig Webb slotted away. The lead didn't last long as a long goal kick flicked on by Patrick O Brien sent Joe Doran through on goal and finished well. Five minutes later another long ball sent towards Patrick O Brien was flicked on to put Joe Doran through and to finish again. A counterattack from dolmen seen Arnas Ubartas score from the edge of the area to make it 3-1 at the break. Dolmen started the second half a lot quicker and were 5-1 up after goals from Joe Doran and a free kick from Paul Connors. But St. Joseph's pulled it back once again with the goal of the game a free kick from about 30 yards out straight into the top bin from that man Webb again. A flurry of goals followed which seen Jamie Doorley come off the bench to grab himself a goal. St Joseph's scored from a goalkeeping mistake which allowed Tom Mitchell in. Keelan lacey got a brace to make it 8 for the home side but it was St Joseph's who finished off the scoring with a header from a corner from Luke Hutton at the death. Best for dolmen were Joe Doran, Keelan lacey and Lorcan Canavan

St. Joseph's FC v Village FC

St. Joseph's FC 0 - 2 Village FC
An extremely warm evening at McArdle Cross in Tinryland last Friday made for some challenging playing conditions for both sides, but it was the home side St. Joseph's, who started the more determined of the two teams. In the opening ten minutes they had three decent opportunities to score and would later rue their inability to convert in front of goal in the early stage of the game. After 15 minutes Village began to settle and were awarded a penalty when Alan McCullagh was taken down in the box as he latched onto an excellent through ball. He stepped up and converted confidently, sending the keeper the wrong way. Both sides had ample opportunities for the remainder of the first half however, it was Village took their lead into the break. At the start of the second half St. Joseph's tried to beat the keeper from the kick-off, only to see their effort go glaringly wide of the target. Again, as the half progressed, there was not much to separate the sides on a tight pitch that left little margin for error. Village had two great opportunities to extend their lead when Liam Walsh's crisp shot hit the post and Paul Dunne's curling effort was well saved by the keeper. St Joseph’s also had their chances but couldn't find a way passed the Village keeper. Village were eventually rewarded 15 minutes into the second half when Brendan O'Driscoll beat two defenders and coolly slotted his effort home. St Joseph’s pressed Village for the final quarter of the game, but resolute defending and assured goalkeeping from Jamie Horan ensured a victory for the visitors. Best for Village were Jamie Horan, Brendan O'Driscoll and Eoin Ray. Best for the home side were Keith McGrath and Padraig Delaney.

Slaney continued to pile on the pressure with further goals from O`Brien and Peter Kehoe, with both assists from Stephen Murphy. A long-range effort from Declan Brennan and a fine finish from Daniel O`Brien made it 5 nil before half-time.
