Hanover Harps B 3 - 0 Round Tower Rovers

Hanover Harps 3

Round Tower Rovers 0

Hanover bounced to their first win since October.

They started smartly and were unlucky not to take an early lead on two minutes when Dillon Murphy squared to Aaron Wynne, only for his effort to be cleared off the line. Glenn Nolan almost broke the deadlock on 22 minutes but for a last-ditch block as he was about to shoot. Good interplay down the right wing between Gary O’Keeffe and Dylan Walsh pulled a smart save out of the Rovers ‘keeper on the half hour mark. Hanover’s perseverance paid off on 42 minutes when Craig Walker’s clearance found Shane Kelly with pinpoint accuracy and Kelly's first-time volley nestled in the bottom corner.

The second half saw more of the same from the home side who were fully in control. Aaron Kinsella went on a mazy run on 52 minutes resulting in a free kick but Wynne's effort was saved by the visitors ‘keeper. Hanover got their second with 22 minutes remaining when Kelly raided down the right, crossed to Glenn Nolan who set Dylan Walsh to fire the ball into the corner. On 72 minutes Aaron Wynne played a super ball to put Dillon Murphy through on goal resulting in him been taken down by the onrushing goalkeeper. Murphy stepped up and made it 3-0 to Hanover.

Round Tower Rovers 1

Round Tower slumped to their eighth defeat of the season as they had no luck against Killeshin in what was a six pointer.

Killeshin started on the front foot and on six minutes went one up after Brian Lowry volleyed home James Brennan's corner. After 30 minutes Evan Ruddy shot just wide whilst Ricardo Tavolieri had a header go wide on 40 minutes. Brian Lowry had another excellent volley just wide on 42 minutes James Brennan then had a shot saved just on half time.

Killeshin started sharpest in second half also with Tavolieri shooting just wide from distance on 47 minutes. On the 52 minutes it was 2-0 as Evan Ruddy lobbed the keeper after running onto a great ball from Vinny Dowling. On 56 minutes Colum Dunne pulled one back with a strike from distance into the bottom corner to give them hope of a comeback. Round Tower pushed hard and had a few half chances after this but on 82 minutes Evan Ruddy ran in on a great ball from Cathal Dooley to wrap up the points for Killeshin with a great finish.

Best for Killeshin were Tim O’Brien, Evan Ruddy and Ricardo Tavolieri.

Bagenalstown AFC 2 - 0 Round Tower Rovers

Bagenalstown AFC 2

Round Tower Rovers 0

Bagenalstown had a tough encounter with Round Towers on an icy morning.

The game was evenly contested throughout and the gap between the two teams in the table seemed to be irrelevant as both sides shared the possession. Town tried hard to break down the strong and physical Rovers defence and found a breakthrough after a long throw from Paddy O’Brien found Matty Curran at the back post to tap one home. Rovers had chances and forced a great top corner save from Dan Kearney from a Towers free kick.

After the break, again Rovers sat back and Town tried to break them down. Chances went abegging and Rovers started to believe they may have a chance of getting something from the game but great work from Craig Fogarty to close down the Rovers defence found Matty Curran who squared for Trevor Nolan to make it 2-0. Town took control of the last 20 minutes and closed out the game.

Best for Town were Paddy O’Brien, Brian Murphy and Murty Cummins.

Round Tower Rovers v Hanover Harps B
Div Two 12/01 11:00
Round Tower Rovers 3 - 3 Hanover Harps B

Round Tower Rovers 3

Hanover Harps 3

Hanover slipped further down the table with the draw. Hanover hadn’t kicked a competitive ball since the start of December and were a bit stale at the outset. Rovers were keen to take the game to Harps in the first 15 minutes. Hanover edged their way into the game and began to dominate. The breakthrough came for the visitors from a Dylan Walsh corner that was flicked to the net by Eric Dowling with 27 minutes on the clock. Round Tower equalised through Benny Quigley as Hanover were down to ten men due to a concussion injury.

Although level at the break Hanover were in control and retook the lead in the 53rd minute after Dillon Murphy retained possession high up the pitch and played in Aaron Wynne to score. Shane Kelly released Murphy in the 55th minute, he rounded three defenders only to be hacked down by the last in the box. Penalty! Up stepped Arron Wynne to put Hanover 1-3 ahead with half an hour to play. Hanover were comfortable in possession and without but in the 83rd minute conceded a corner from which Rovers scored through Colin Buggy and gained a lifeline. That lifeline arrived in the 95th minute when they were awarded a penalty of their own with Colum Dunne stepping up to tie the game.
