St Josephs Blue Youths 3 - 0 Crettyard United

St Joseph’s Blue 3

Crettyard United 0

Joey’s entertained Crettyard in blustery conditions, with Joey’s getting off to a jittery start, but they soon settled and started passing the ball around well and opening the Crettyard defence.

Joey’s first goal came when Jonah Dunne made a good run up the right wing and he then pulled back a lovely ball to the on-rushing Evan Maguire, who rocketed the ball into the back of the Crettyard net for 1-0. Joey’s dominating play and possession, they didn’t have long to wait for a second goal, as Dawid Radochonski’s drilled free-kick, forced the Crettyard keeper to push the ball on to the crossbar and Cian Shannon was there to finish off the rebound for 2-0. Joey’s third goal came just before the interval, when Sam Byrne made a run up the left and then crossed in a fine ball across the goals and it was met by Jonah Dunne, who swept it into the net for 3-0 and they took that comfortable lead into the interval.

In the second-half, Crettyard re-jigged their line-up and pushed three up fronts but the Joey’s defence stayed rock solid and kept a deserved ‘clean-sheet’ although, Joey’s should have added to their tally, but they were denied when a shot hit the post.

Best for Joey’s were Matthew Downey, Robert Timmons, Ross Mannion and Dylan McDermott, whilst it was a battling performance from Crettyard.

Round Tower Rovers v Killeshin/Hanover FC
09/03 14:30
Round Tower Rovers 0 - 8 Killeshin/Hanover FC

Round Tower Rovers 0

Killeshin/Hanover 8

Due to Knockbeg College’s great exploits in the All-Ireland GAA semi-final it was a severely depleted Killeshin/Hanover side who travelled to play Round Tower Rovers, but it was credit to their stand-ins, who put up a terrific performance, to come away with an emphatic victory.

Rovers were the first to show, when after five minutes, Killeshin/Hanover’s keeper – Mikey Dempsey, who pulled off a superb point-blank save to keep out a certain goal and thereafter, it was one-way traffic, as Killeshin/Hanover totally dominated proceedings. On twenty-five minutes Shane Murphy’s long-range effort, hit a post, however, Eoghan Fallon was on hand to fire home the rebound for 0-1. Thereafter, the outstanding Ben Dorgan stole the show for Killeshin/Hanover, as he scored five goals, in the next hour, including two twenty-yard strikes, before the interval and then scored three fine examples of the art of centre-forward as he single-handedly put Killeshin/Hanover out of sight at 0-6.

The goal of the game came on eighty-five minutes, when Shane Murphy’s forty yarder flashed past the Rovers keeper, who couldn’t do anything to prevent the score for 0-7. And they should have added to their keeper, but Eamon Moran followed up and was on hand to rifle the ball home for 0-8.

Rovers never gave up but were just outclassed and best for Killeshin/Hanover were Vinny Oba, Timmy Mohammed, Adam Nolan, the mercurial Shane Murphy and not forgetting the prolific Ben Dorgan.

10/03 14:00
Vale Wanderers 0 - 1 Mill Celtic

Vale Wanderers 0

Mill Celtic 1

Division Two champions Mill travelled to the Superbowl on Sunday and with nothing at stake it produced a very entertaining spectacle despite the conditions.

With both defences stretched in the early exchanges it would be the visitors who would strike with the only goal of the game on 20 minutes with a fine finish. Vale had their chances to get on the score sheet but just couldn’t connect with that final pass and were left frustrated.

Best for a gallant Vale were Orlando Sawyer, Carmel Cummins and Noleen Maher.

Newpark AFC v Ballymurphy Celtic
10/03 14:00
Newpark AFC 0 - 3 Ballymurphy Celtic

Newpark FC 0

Ballymurphy Celtic 3

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.

Hanover Harps 6

Nurney Villa 0

Hanover entertained a depleted Nurney team, but the home team set to task early.

Alan Bolger headed over on two minutes and Mick Ryan saw his shot saved in the fifth minute, sending early warnings across the Nurney defence. Hanover took the lead on 20 minutes when Mick Ryan released Chris Fingleton to slot past the keeper. On 22 minutes, Johnny Waters went close with a header from a corner. Hanover were awarded a penalty on 25 minutes when Aaron Kinsella played through Chris Fingleton who was fouled by the Nurney ‘keeper. Fingleton converted for his second. On the half hour mark, Shane Noonan set up Eric Dowling to net Hanover’s third. Five minutes later Johnny Waters assisted Eric Dowling for his second with a fine strike from outside the box.

Hanover made five changes at the break and within five minutes were five up through Kuba Dobosz after some nice footwork by Dillon Murphy. Chance after chance ensued for Hanover and Nurney kept defending as best they could but the final goal came late on when a Gary O’Keeffe pin point cross was stunningly volleyed to the roof of the net by the veteran Pa Dowling. A resounding win for Hanover against a valiant Nurney.

For Nurney, Donnacha Murphy, Anthony Hogan and Dermot Maher tried hard.

New Oak Boys B 1 - 3 Celtic Stars

New Oak Boys 1

Celtic Stars 3

Celtic Stars came away from the Burrin Road venue with all three points following an entertaining game on Sunday,

The home side got off to a great start when they took the lead within the first few minutes when Sol Yabre lobbed the keeper on the half hour. Stars pressed throughout the half, but they were repelled by Corey Harmon and Stephen Preston and the Carlow side maintained their lead up to the break.

During the second half the Wicklow side came into their own and Jason Cush equalised following a great through ball from Ronan Brennan. New Oak should have gone ahead when Callum Rhodes beat two defenders before squaring the ball to Killian Browne, but he blasted over the bar. They were made to pay for their failings when Mark Egan scored from a superb volley to give Stars the lead. Jason Cush was rewarded for his efforts with his second goal to put the game beyond the Carlow town side.

Best for Stars were Joe Roberts Jason Cush and Mark Egan while for New Oak Corey Harmon, Robbie Purcell and Sol Yabre were players of note.

Slaney Rovers 4

St Anne’s FC 0

Slaney advanced to the next round of the Carlow cup at the expense of fellow Division One opponents St. Anne’s in Rathvilly on Sunday.

The visitors had two great chances to take the lead before Daniel O`Brien finished off a pin point cross from Stephen Farrell on 35 minutes to lead at the break.

With the strong wind at their backs in the second-half the home side dominated proceedings. Aaron Broughall headed home a cross from Michael Foley on the right wing on 49 minutes. The Ballylinan side struggled in the wintery conditions and failed to penetrate the Rovers defence. Two late close-range finishes from Broughall and Dominic Byrne rewarded the efforts of Stephen Farrell, Seanie Furlong and Paul Curran.

Ballymurphy Celtic v St Fiacc's FC
10/03 11:00
Ballymurphy Celtic 3 - 0 St Fiacc's FC

Ballymurphy Celtic 3

St. Fiacc’s 0

Ballymurphy secured their first win since November with an excellent win over St. Fiacc’s. They started well and took the lead through a well hit Dean Grennan free kick from 25 yards. Fiacc’s responded well and should have scored twice with Ross Hennessey and Roy Culleton just missing the target. Then on 34 minutes, a well-placed Jamie Doyle free kick was taken down by Thomas Doyle who slotted into the bottom corner from just inside the box. Fiacc’s came out all guns blazing in the second half but struggled to finish. A great run by Davy Hurley down the right wing saw his cross headed over the bar by the incoming Dale Byrne. Fiacc’s then forced several corners with Matthew Power and Ricky Lawler coming closest to scoring off them. Bally continued to dominate throughout the second half and should have made it 3-0 when a Dean Grennan through pass set Alan Curran through on 68 minutes but he hit the post and away to safety. However, on 78 minutes, he made no mistake following a rebound after a very good Jack Foley solo run and shot was well saved by the keeper. Dara Tobin had a great chance to make it 4-0 three minutes, but he failed to make contact with a great through pass again from Grennan.

Best for Bally were Ben Coleman, Alan Curran and Thomas Doyle.

Nurney Villa A v Vale Wanderers B

Nurney Villa A 1 - 0 Vale Wanderers B

Nurney Villa A 1

Vale Wanderers B 0

Nurney picked up their second win of the season at the expense of local rivals Vale Wanderers second string in this Carlow Cup encounter on Sunday.

Before anybody had time to settle Nurney found themselves 1-0 after less than one minute. Good work from Dean Farrell and James Moore down the right set up Gary Dillon for a simple tap in at the back post to make it 1-0. Despite the early set back Vale matched their opponents for the next 20 minutes. Unfortunately, they lost Adam Dunne and Ronan Devine to injury and along with a strong wind this boosted Nurney. They home side really took the game to Vale and missed a series of chances to double their lead.

Vale were better in the second half with the wind at their backs and should have drawn level when Lee Condron squandered a good chance with only the keeper to beat. However, it was Nurney’s day and a deserved win as they progress to the next round.

Best for Nurney were Mick Murphy, Dan Kearney and Niall Scully.

Outstanding for Vale on the day were Buzz O’Reilly, Brian Farrell and Keith Lillis.

Crettyard United A 3 - 0 Parkville United B

Crettyard United A 3

Parkville United B 0

It was top of Division Two against second in the Premier Division in this clash, but the minnows held their own against the Killeen men for much of the first half, defending well.

Both teams had chances with TJ Kavanagh and Niall Byrne combining to lay off for Brian Condon who saw his effort just wide on 20 minutes. Cian Madden went close soon after. His excellent drive looked like a certain goal but for a last-minute intervention from the defender. Damian Bak made a fine save from a close-range free kick. Anto Fitzpatrick was the shining light and was the focal point of all that was good for Cretty. He earned a corner and Luke Maher’s delivery should have resulted in a goal but Ger Murray was off target. Salter then did well on the end line and squared but Fitzpatrick had a fresh air shot with the goal wide open. Luke Maher put Cretty in front on 50 minutes from a corner. After that Cretty took over and soon after Fitzpatrick got a well-deserved goal after great work by Evan Phillips. Parkville didn’t give up and on 70 minutes, TJ Kavanagh floated a superb ball cross field from the right to pick out Niall Byrne who put through Joe Morris who let fly with a left footed effort which the keeper pushed round for a corner. The third was a penalty dispatched by Bobby Dowling on 88 minutes.

Best for Cretty were Anto Fitzpatrick Bobby Dowling and Evan Phillips. Best for Parkville were Sam Sheridan, Cian Madden and Brian Condon.

Killeshin/Hanover FC 0 - 3 St Patricks Boys

Killeshin/Hanover 0

St Patrick’s Boys 3

It was a very slow start from Killeshin/Hanover and it was no surprise that they found themselves 0-1 down, in the early stages, as St Pat’s started much the stronger and went ahead 0-1, when David Dunphy scored in the fifteen minutes of the half, he went on to score his brace on thirty minutes for a 0-2 lead. Killeshin/Hanover then started to come into the game and they dominated the last fifteen minutes of the half, with Dylan Regan, Mikey Dempsey and Shane Murphy, all going close, but with no reward and it was 0-2 at the interval.

Killeshin/Hanover changed their shape at half-time and it worked, as St Pat’s were restricted to just a few breakaway attacks, whilst Killeshin/Hanover were bombarding the St Pat’s goal, as chances were created for Ben Dorgan, Dylan Regan, Shane Murphy, Kaelum Hand, Vinny Oba and Timmy Mohammed, but all were spurned and hopefully, valuable lessons have been learned for these players. In one of their few breakaways, St Pat’s won a corner on seventy minutes and James Esser put it right on the head of Tom Mitchell, who steered it home for 0-3 and that’s how it finished.

Best for a Killeshin/Hanover side were Hubert Mazur, Bill Fitzgerald, Josh Lacken and Eamon Moran, whilst standing out for St Pat’s were James Esser, Lee Nolan and ‘Man of the Match’ – David Dunphy.

Round Tower Rovers v Vale Wanderers

Round Tower Rovers 0 - 5 Vale Wanderers

Round Tower Rovers 0

Vale Wanderers 5

It was a day that produced virtually, every type of weather conditions in the duration of the game, with Rovers having the worst against them, as they had to contend with a gale-force wind and pouring rain, in their faces.

Despite these conditions, Rovers managed to keep Vale, at bay until the forty minute mark, when they scored two goals, the first for 0-1, from Tommy Cummins, following good work by Kieran Collins and the second for 0-2, from Tom Gardiner, who headed home a fine cross, ‘whipped in’ by Lorcan Galvin and they took that lead into the interval.

With a score of 0-2 and wind advantage in the second-half, Rovers remained hopeful of hauling back Vale’s lead, however, lo and behold the weather cleared up and ruined Rovers perceived advantage. Vale managed to carve out three more goals, one of which was an Own Goal, with another from a tidy Lorcan Galvin finish and a further one from Lorcan Galvin, with a twenty-five-yard screamer on the volley, to make the final score 0-5 to Vale.

It was a battling performance from an unlucky Rovers team, whilst standing out for Vale were Tom Gardiner, Jack Treacy and Lorcan Galvin.

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

By the time the game finished Mill had emptied the bench with substitutes such as Aishling Woods and Emma Murphy making impressive cameos. Captain Pamela Grufferty was presented with the trophy afterwards to the delight of everyone associated with Mill Celtic.

Best for Mill Celtic on the day were Deirbhile Byrne, Muireann Fagan, and Megan Grufferty.

Bagenalstown AFC 2

Both teams found it hard in the first half in horrendous conditions and it was 0-0 at half time.

Castlemore started off as the stronger team with a few goal chances from Liam Dempsey with help from Jack McGrath. Town started the second half brightly and were one up after a good Trevor Nolan lob. Nolan became provider as a good cross was turned to the net by Craig Fogarty. Town seemed to switch off for the last ten mins as Castlemore pegged them back. Castlemore never gave up as substitute James Carroll made a big difference with ten minutes left as he scored a great goal from a distance. With four minutes to go, Daniel McGrath was fouled outside the box and Niall Robinson stood up to take the free. A powerful free kick came off the keeper and Dylan Kenny was not making any mistakes to level things up.

Best for Town were David Miley, Trevor Nolan and Craig Fogarty. An all-round good team performance from Castlemore.

Parkville United 8

Nurney Villa 0

Parkville dominated the game from the off as the game was only a contest for the first few minutes.

Parkville had two efforts ruled out for offside and Brian Condon went close but for a fingertip save. The Nurney defence held firm for 20 minutes before TJ Kavanagh opened the scoring with a great drive to the bottom corner. Soon after, Parkville were two up when Joe Morris finished a move that he started from left back following a great interchange with Kavanagh and Sean Maher on the left. Niall Byrne opened his account on the half hour with a neat finish. Cian Madden was anchoring the midfield with Paddy Byrne a constant threat up front and his efforts were rewarded with a fine goal on 40 mins. Joe Morris scored the goal of the game on the stroke of half time with a stunning chip with the outside of his left foot to give Parkville a comprehensive half time lead of 5-0.

There was no let-up in the Parkville attack in the second half and Paddy Byrne scored his second after two minutes with a super strike to the top corner. A series of corners from TJ Kavanagh saw Paddy Hickey score the seventh and Byrne Parkvilles eighth. Parkville went close to a ninth when Sean Maher saw his effort saved before James Lonergan put Barry Flynn through only to see his effort just wide. With time running out, Mark Behan made a lung bursting run through on goal and rounded the keeper but took a tackle that saw his effort just wide.

On a good day for Parkville, Joe Morris, Paddy Byrne and Michael Brown stood out whilst best for Nurney were Declan Murphy, Anthony Hogan and Liam Murphy.

Castle got back to winning ways with this flattering victory over Baltinglass in a wet and windy Youth Centre on Sunday.

The home side got off to a great start and Paddy O’Brien put them in front when he headed home a Jose Souza corner on ten minutes. The visitors were relying on their counter attack, but the Rangers defence stood firm. Castle doubled their lead when Danny O’Boyle’s shot could only be parried, and Eddie Dooley was quickest to react to slot the ball home. Michael McGrath made it 3-0 before the break.

Baltinglass started the second half in better form and created a few half chances but could not convert them. Eddie Davis saw his long-range shot find the net to put the game beyond Balto on the hour mark. Keith O’Dwyer finished off the scoring from the penalty spot to wrap up the points.

Best for the winners were Dermot O’Boyle, Roy Pearson and Cian Connolly while for Baltinglass John Martin, Sean Horan and Derek Nolan were players of note.

Vale Wanderers 4

New Oak Boys 0

Vale leap frogged Slaney to go top of the Division after this win over a resurgent New Oak side on Sunday.

Terrible conditions greeted both teams and as a result the first half was scrappy. The home side had the best of the chances throughout the half as Martin Bridget hit the crossbar and they also forced two goal line clearances. Eventually the deadlock was broken when Liam Ryan crossed for Davey Dowling to head home on 35 minutes.

In the second half Vale doubled their lead early through Jack Tracey. Davey Dowling then got his second of the day when he volleyed home an Andrew Townsend cross. In between the goals, Dinny Byrne made an outstanding save to keep New Oak at bay. Liam Ryan headed home the fourth from a Jack Tracey cross.

On a day of many goals, special mention to the Vale defence and goalkeeper Dinny Byrne who continued their fine run of performances.

Simon O’Shea and Ben Dorgan both netted a brace as Hanover eased passed St Fiacc’s.

Harps got off to the perfect start, netting twice inside the first ten minutes. Matheus Voiola squared for Dorgan to open the scoring and O’Shea pounced to double the lead shortly afterwards. It got worse for The Saints on the half hour when Sean Kavanagh scored from a Mark Davis corner. St Fiacc’s almost pulled a goal back when Roy Culleton and James Hickey combined to set up Mark McLoughlin, but his effort clipped the crossbar and went over.

The second half saw Hanover push on again and Dorgan netted his second of the game to make it 4-0. O’Shea followed suit with his second of the game before Fiacc’s responded with a goal from McLoughlin after an excellent pass from substitute Shane Condron. Hanover’s reply was almost instant as Alan Shaw restored their five-goal advance to finish off the scoring.

Vale put themselves back into league contention with this win over Baltinglass in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

The home side got off to a slow start and the visitors should have capitalised with chances from Derek Nolan and Declan Jones. When Vale did get into their stride, they caused problems for Balto down the wings. They duly took the lead following one of their raids down the flanks when a cross from the right could only be parried but the Vale forward was on hand to head home. They were soon two goals up just before the interval.

During the second half exchanges the Wicklow side tried to do a damage limitations job but the Leighlinbridge side made it 3-0 when Sean Horan deflected the ball to his own net. The winners completed the scoring in the closing minutes to secure a valuable three points.

Best for Baltinglass were Sean Horan, Graham Johnson and Karl Slater.
