Ballymurphy Celtic 2 - 4 Newpark AFC

Ballymurphy Celtic 2

Newpark FC 4

Newpark started this encounter much the sharper and were ahead on five minutes when Tina Wright’s low shot found the bottom corner. Ballymurphy showed character and were level ten minutes later when the prolific Ann Murphy found the net. Both teams would cancel each other out for the remainder of the half.

It was a much-improved performance from Newpark in the second half when constant pressure on the Ballymurphy goal yielded a free kick in a dangerous area on 52 minutes. Jane Meagher stepped up and rifled it to the top corner. Newpark started to settle now and were soon out of sight when a couple of quick-fire strikes from Tracey Bourke would seal the three points. Ballymurphy kept pushing to the final whistle and were rewarded with a consolation from Murphy.

Aoife Barcoe and Ann Murphy impressed for Ballymurphy while Annie Dunne, Rosie Miller and Ebony Masuku stood out for Newpark.

Vale Wanderers 1 - 2 Newpark AFC

Vale Wanderers 1

Newpark FC 2

Newpark played into a strong breeze in the first half and were under pressure for large parts and should have been behind early but for the exploits of Annie Dunne and Jayne Meagher in goal.

Vale eventually broke the deadlock on 35 minutes through Aoife Roache. Newpark started to get a foothold in the game and levelled just before the break when Denise Doyle was rewarded for her tireless work throughout the half.

The second half was a more evenly contested affair with chances at a premium and both defences working well. If ever you’re going to score a winner then the 90th minute is the time to strike and Newpark did just that when Abbie Wall found the net after some great work from Doyle and Sinead McGrane.

Best for Newpark were Annie Dunne, Jayne Meagher, Rosie Miller and Denise Doyle while it was an all-round impressive Vale performance.

Newpark AFC 3 - 1 St Fiacc's FC

Newpark FC 3

St Fiacc’s 1

St Fiacc’s started much the brighter in this encounter in Kilkenny on Sunday afternoon.

They were unlucky not to be ahead when Sharon O’Neill’s shot smacked the crossbar. This seemed to spur Newpark into action and five minutes later were in front when Chiats Cardillo’s square ball found Abbie Wall 20 yards out and she rifled her shot to the top corner. On the half hour mark Ebony Masuku doubled the Newpark advantage when she fired low into the bottom corner following a great passing move. Fiacc’s pulled one back soon after when Sharon O’Neill bundled the ball over the line to keep the deficit to the minimum at halftime.

The second half started much the better from Newpark and were soon two clear again when Cardillo got her second of the game this time a strike from 20 yards to seal the points for Newpark and reward a fine team performance.

Newpark AFC 2 - 1 Ballymurphy Celtic

Newpark FC 2

Ballymurphy Celtic 1

This was Newpark's first game back since November and it showed as they were very rusty from the start.

Ballymurphy took full advantage of that and took the lead after 20 minutes through Michelle Kelly. This spurred Newpark into action who started pressing the Ballymurphy goal and this pressure paid off when Newpark equalised just on the stroke of half time when Ebony Masuku latched onto a loose ball and buried it into the bottom corner of the net. Both teams went in search of a winner and as a result would lead to an entertaining half.

In the 75th minute Newpark had a great chance when a ball over the top was collected by Denise Doyle and was unlucky to slot it inches wide of the post. Ballymurphy had a good chance that was saved by Jayne Meagher in the Newpark goal. Then with 7mins to go a free kick swung in by Abbie Wall was bundled over the line by Kellyanne Moran. That's the way the game ended and Newpark were by happy to collect their first three points of the new year.

Best for the winners were Abbie Wall, Denise Doyle, Rosie Miller and Ebony Masuku while Emma Cooper, Ann Murphy and Stacey Hennessy did well for Ballymurphy.

Newpark 1

Evergreen 1

This was a very entertaining and evenly contested affair in Kilkenny on Sunday where a share of the spoils was a fair result on the day. Both defences were well on top throughout the opening half with chances at a premium . Newpark started the second period much the better and were in front only a minute in when a great passing move involving Tracey Bourke and Tina Wright released Denise Doyle who made no mistake. Newpark with their tails up now pressed for a second but were always susceptible to a breakaway and this happened midway through the half when Anna Radu found the net. Both teams continued on the front foot for the last twenty minutes but neither could find a winner. It was an impressive team performance from Evergreen while Annie Dunne, Sasha O Hara and Denise Doyle stood out for Newpark.

Mill Celtic 4

Newpark AFC 0

Mill maintained their 100% start to the season with a hard-fought victory over a gallant Newpark on Sunday afternoon.

Mill were ahead as early as five minutes when Mags Nolan was fouled in the box and Triona Duggan stepped up to calmly slot home. Both sides went for it from here and it took an excellent save from Rachael Fennin in the Mill goal to keep their noses in front. Mill then added two more goals before half time through Trina Duggan and a well worked team move ending with a great strike from Megan Grufferty.

The second half saw Newpark on top but Mill added a fourth against the run of play when Trina Duggan got her hat-trick.

Newpark AFC 2 - 2 Vale Wanderers

Newpark FC 2

Vale Wanderers 2

For the third game on the spin Newpark found themselves a goal up inside of five minutes and again it was dead ball specialist Jane Meagher who found the top corner with a 25-yard free kick. Vale were soon level when Shauna O’Neill’s long ball from the back line fell to the feet of Susan O’Leary who cleverly drew the keeper and calmly slotted home to the empty net. On 25 minutes Vale turned the game on its head when they took the lead when good play in the back line from Amanda Dermody and Shauna o Neill delivered to the ball to Philomena murphy who beat her player and delivered a great ball to Aoife Roche who made no mistake of putting it in the net. It stayed that way until half time.

Newpark started the second half much better than the first with some good passing and were unlucky not to draw level when Denise Doyle poked the ball past Vale keeper but this was cancelled due to an offside. Newpark kept pressing and had another goal disallowed for a hand ball. Newpark must have thought it was going to be one of those days. While pressing high up the pitch they finally got their reward with a deft flick over the Vale keeper by Denise Doyle which brought the game level. Both teams created chances looking for a winner but a draw ended up being a fair result in an evenly contested game.

It was an all-round good team performance from Vale while Denise Doyle, Joanne Walsh and Tracey Bourke shone for Newpark.

Killeshin FC v Newpark AFC

Killeshin FC 1 - 3 Newpark AFC

Killeshin FC 1

Newpark FC 3

Newpark started strong straight away with 15-year-old Kellie Ann Moran scoring after just two minutes from a great run down the wing from Sinead McGrane. This you would think should have set the tone for the game but it didn’t. Newpark got very sloppy with their game and let Killeshin back into it. Killeshin would take full advantage and equalised just before the break with an excellent finish from Niamh Smith. Suzanne Meagher thought she restored the Newpark advantage but her shot cannoned back off the post.

The game was almost settled ten minutes after the break with two quick fire goals from Newpark, the first when Tracey Bourke’s cross field pass found Jane Meagher who lobbed the advancing Killeshin keeper and Moran would net her second of the game following a flowing passing move involving herself and Sinead McGrane. That’s how things would stay with Newpark deserving winners.

Kellie Ann Moran, Tracey Bourke and Sinead McGrane impressed for Newpark while Niamh Smith and Lucy Gaffney did well for Killeshin.

Newpark AFC v Hanover Harps

Newpark AFC 1 - 3 Hanover Harps

Newpark FC 1

Hanover Harps 3

Today’s game was always going to be tough for both teams. With Newpark rebuilding and Hanover reforming both teams set up for a good game and they didn't disappoint.

Newpark could have been in front inside the first minute when Denise Doyle found herself thru on goal but fired just over. The Hanover response was immediate when Essmay Murphy found herself thru on goal but smacked the upright. On 20 minutes she would make amends when Hanover were awarded a penalty for a handball and slotted home from 12 yards.

The contest was end to end and even more so on 65 minutes when Newpark levelled from Tracey Bourke’s 25 yard piledriver. Hanover made a couple of positional changes and it paid dividends when on 73 minutes a Ciara Nolan pass found Rachael Whelan free at the edge of the box and she coolly slotted home from a tight angle. It was soon to be three when Lauren McGrath volleyed home from 25 yards. Murphy was unlucky not to get her second when her free kick struck the post and Kellie Nolan was denied by some brave goalkeeping at the death.

Best for Newpark were Irene Guilfoyle, Tracey Bourke and Annie Dunne while impressive for the winners were Leanne Tumelty, Kellie Nolan, Ciara Nolan and the impressive Marie Hynes.

Crettyard United 2

League champions Crettyard travelled to Kilkenny on Sunday to take on Newpark looking for a place in the Division One cup final.

It was the hosts that started the better, creating several half chances but last luck wouldn’t shine on them and they failed to capitalise. As the game wore on Patrice Whelan in midfield was having more and more of an effect on proceedings and this was evident on 25 mins, Deirdre O’Shea whipped in a corner causing panic and the ball would fall kindly to Alanna Waters who made no mistake from close range. Cretty were soon to double their advantage when Whelan’s long-range effort could only be parried by the Newpark keeper and the advancing Demi Donovan found the bottom corner. Newpark to their credit wouldn’t lie down and forced several saves from Christine Middleton in the Cretty goal and held on to book their place in the final.

Clare Kelly, Chloe Ryan and Patrice Whelan performed well for the winners while it was an all-round spirited Newpark performance.

Weather conditions would wreak havoc in this encounter in Kilkenny on Sunday and with Ballymurphy being the bigger stronger unit it would play into their hands.

Bally started the stronger and were rewarded with a penalty on 15 minutes. The Newpark keeper got a hand to it but couldn’t keep it out. Newpark pressed hard and had good chances but were unlucky with a Tracey Bourke header cleared off the line.

Early in the second half Newpark had a chance to equalise when they were awarded a penalty only to put it wide. As Newpark were pressing they were caught on the break twice by Ballymurphy who scored two more goals. Newpark kept working right up to the end but had no joy in front of goal.

Impressive on the day for Newpark were Irene Guilfoyle, Rachael Wall, and Tracey Bourke.

Newpark FC 1

Parkville United 2

Parkville travelled to Kilkenny on Sunday in a bid to keep Crettyard honest who still need that one point to claim the league title.

Despite the conditions it didn’t take Parkville long to achieve their objective when they scored inside five minutes. Newpark did not let this get them down as they pushed back at Parkville getting some good chances.

The second half was much very much the same with Newpark pressing for an equaliser. Newpark pushed forward committing players but it was Parkville who got a second when they caught Newpark on the break. Newpark finally got the goal they well deserved through Kiara Komar, but it was too late to impact on the score line.

Best for Newpark on the day were Rachael Wall, Tina Wright and Irene Guilfoyle

This encounter in Killeen on Sunday was a case of the champions against the champions elect and a rampant Crettyard performance left them within a point of regaining the crown.

Newpark travelled to Crettyard today in what was horrible windy conditions to play in. Newpark playing with the wind in the first half got off to a great start when a long ball came in over the top of the Crettyard defence and their striker made no mistake from close range for Newpark to go one up on the home side. However, it wasn’t long before Crettyard equalised, Chloe Ryan was pulled down in the box and awarded a penalty. Patrice Whelan stood up and confidently placed the ball in the top right-hand corner making it 1-1. This gave Crettyard the boost they needed. Great play by Marie Meagher and Chloe Ryan found Aisling Behan unmarked in the box however the keeper made a great save, but the ball fell to Demi Donovan where she slotted it home. Another goal came just before the half when Aisling Behan struck the ball however it fumbled in the box and somehow ended up in the back of the net leaving it 3-1 at the half.

The second half started off well for Crettyard when Patrice Whelan and Alanna Waters linked up well down the left side to find Chloe Ryan on the edge of the box who placed the ball well and found the top corner of the net making it 4-1. When a freekick whipped in by Deirdre O’Shea found Aisling Behan who in turn found Demi Donovan who blasted home another goal. Newpark never gave up and attempted to push on but this in turn gave the Crettyard’s strikers ample opportunity. Chloe Ryan found Aisling Behan twice before the final whistle was blew leaving it 7-1 at the finish.

Best for Crettyard, Chloe Ryan, Clare Kelly and Demi Donovan.

Horrendous conditions and slippery underfoot would do neither team any favours in Ballymurphy on Sunday.

It was no surprise considering the conditions that little chances would be created in the opening half hour. On 35 minutes a Newpark corner swung in by Rachael Wall would fall to the feet of Tina Wright who in turn would fire home from close range.

The second half would see Bally push hard for an equaliser but a combination of missed chances and some fine saves from Jayne Larkin Flynn in the Newpark goal would see them hold on for a hard fought three points.

Impressive for the winners were Mags Hogan, Lynne Beirne and Jayne Larkin Flynn while Katie Drennan, Catriona Scully and Aoibheann Murphy tried hard for Bally
