Ballymurphy won a hard fought battle with Ardattin 3-2.

After an even start with changes for both teams Ballymurphy took the lead through a well taken free kick by Jack Cummins. Ardattin hit back immediately after Blain Cosgrove was fouled in the box, Liam Whelan converting. Just on half time Ballymurphy took the lead again when Jack Cummins converted a penalty and could have extended it further but for an Even Kearns save. Ballymurphy were reduced to 10 men shortly after half time but extended their lead after Jack Cummins converted another penalty. The Ballymurphy goal keeper made a great save to prevent Aaron Smith reducing the deficit.

Burrin Celtic v Vale Wanderers B
div 2 cup 16/04 19:00
Burrin Celtic 3 - 5 Vale Wanderers B
Vale started strong and really took the game to Burrin quickly closing down the Burrin defence at every opportunity, it was this approach that resulted in Vale winning a free kick on the edge of the box mid-way through the first half, Keelan Brennan stood up and dispatched the free right into the top corner to give Vale the lead. Vale continued on the front foot and just before the break Conor Byrne doubled Vales lead with a fine striker from the edge of the box. Burrin came out strong in the second half but suffered an early blow when they were reduced to 10 men. However, this didn’t deter their efforts and they pulled one back when their winger snook in at the back post for an easy tap in. Not long after they levelled the game with a superb volley from the edge of the box. Mid-way through the half now and the game tied it was Vale who rallied and started to get back on top. With 10 minutes to go they got the lead, Darren O Keefe racing on to a through ball and finding the bottom corner. It looked to be Vale’s Day but Burrin weren’t done yet and in the 89th minute they found a equaliser to send the game to extra time. The first half of extra time was very edgy with penalties looking a real possibility, but early in the second period Vale again found the lead. Tommy Cummins rose highest to meet a cross and a fine header past the keeper was met by the in-rushing Kieran Casey who made sure it ended up in the net! Burrin to their credit stayed going but their race was run 2 minutes later when Geoffrey Doran arrived at the back post and produced a fine header to ensure it was Vale who go to the cup final. Best for Vale on the day were Tommy Cummins, PJ Haughney and Jordan Doyle.

Round Tower Rovers v St. Joseph's FC
div 2 cup 17/04 11:00
Round Tower Rovers 3 - 2 St. Joseph's FC
This was another absolutely brilliant game of football between the two top teams unfolded in Timahoe on a rainy Sunday morning, but the weather certainly didn't dampen the passion and performance shown by both teams. The Saints started strong and immediately went on the attack and opened the scoring through their top goal scorer Tom Mitchell in the 5th minute when Padraig Webb drove at the heart of the Rovers defence and passed neatly for Mitchell to finish from 6 yards. The Joeys lead didn’t last long when Kieran Delaney stepped up to finish past the Joeys team from the edge of the box. The Saints pulled back in front when Fredo Eyong scored with a tidy finish at the back post, this time Mitchell becoming the provider for Eyong. A well deserved goal for Eyong, for his exceptional work rate and attacking play. Rovers equalised for a second time when a Cian Dowling Byrne shot was saved well by the keeper only to fall into the path of Enda Butler who rifled it home. Just before the break was when Rovers took the lead for the first time when a good ball from the left from Darren Byrne was send home by Ben O’Reilly, in what proved to be the match winner. The Saints began to dominate the second half by playing fantastic football for both their fans and the neutral to enjoy. Kieran Carey had a great chance to level for the Saints when he found himself with time and space in the middle of the box but his shot was blocked by a Rovers defender. The Saints tried valiantly to score their third goal of the game but for all their magnificent play they could not find the net and Rovers went through to the next round. A really fantastic game of football between both teams with Brandon Sheehan, Jack Murphy and Evan McGuire standing out for the Saints.

Vale Wanderers A 1 - 2 Kilree Celtic

Vale came flying out of the blocks and had their first chance through Sean Smithers after a good Jack Treacy through ball. Half chances were exchanged between the two sides before Kilree took the lead through Alan McDonald. Mark McDonald won a header from a free kick and Alan McDonald got a flick on which ended up in the bottom corner. Kilree doubled their lead shortly after, when a long ball into the box was parried out and was flicked into the net by Mark McDonald. Vale showed little composure and had a half chance or two themselves but the score line remained 0-0 at HT.

Vale started second half with intent and determination to try claw themselves back into the game. Sean Smithers, James Dowling, and Rob Bulmer looked a lot more dangerous. Vale missed a string of chances inside the box before getting one back from Charlie Nolan who tapped in at the back post after a great header from Billy Lennon O Brien. Kilree we’re out on their feet but stood strong and defended well and in numbers to maintain the barrage of attacks from the home side. Jack Treacy had a free kick on the edge of the box bounce back off the wall. James Dowling had a chance at the back post but Kilree somehow got a block on it. The away side seen out the tie and puts them in the hat for the semi finals. For Vale, it’s a case of learning & re grouping for their cup final next Friday. Best for Vale on the day were Billy Lennon O’Brien, Jason Daly, and Cormac O’Hara. Played well for Kilree were Paul Kehoe, Gary Dillon and Alan mac Donald

Slaney found themselves 2 nil down, before good combination plays between Dominic Byrne and John Martin, with the latter`s effort rebounding off the post into the path of Lubomir Lesko for a simple tap in on 35 minutes. The newly crowned league champions restored their two goal advantage before a Byrne effort rebounded off the crossbar and ball fell kindly for Eoin Curran to blast home on 43 minutes for 3 - 2 at the break. Slaney drew parity following good build up play between Lesko and Daniel O`Brien on the left wing and a fine finish from John Martin on 70 minutes. It was going to take something special to separate the sides and Lubomir Lesko delivered with a brilliant solo goal to advance to the next round and reward the efforts of Ted Redmond, Regan Murphy and Rory McColl.

St. Patricks Boys B v Parkville United

St. Patricks Boys B 3 - 1 Parkville United

Parkville had the ball in the net no fewer than 5 times in this game but in the end only 1 goal counted as Pats B ran out winners. On 4 minutes Nick Nolan had the ball in the back of the net but the goal was ruled out for offside. Joe Sunderland went close on 10 minutes before Jack O'Neill saw his effort wide on 17 minutes. On 25 minutes, Nick Nolan again had the ball in the net, but his effort was ruled offside. Soon after Tom Pollard was put through with an excellent Jamie Walsh ball, but he was pulled back for offside. Parkville finally made the breakthrough when Jack O'Neill scored from outside the box with a long-range effort to the top corner to leave it 0-1to the visitors at half time. The second half continued in the same vein with Parkville constantly attacking. On 60 minutes, Nick Nolan again had the ball in the net and his effort was ruled out for offside. Soon after St Pats were awarded a corner after a breakaway attack and scored from their first effort on target. The following 10 minutes saw Parkville play sluggishly and when a pass was misplaced in midfield, Pats intercepted and played a nice through ball for the striker who scored 2-1 with 20 minutes to go.

For the remainder of the game Parkville laid siege to the Pats goal with Joe Sunderland forcing a good save from the keeper before Jack O'Neill shot from distance and Jamie Farrell saw his effort saved. On 88 mins Parkville were awarded a corner following excellent work by Barry Flynn. Tommy Murphy provided the delivery for Paddy Hickey to drive home the equaliser only for the ref to give a free out. To add insult to injury, with Parkville totally committed in attack, Pats broke away and went up the other end and scored a 3rd. A disappointing day for Parkville who can feel unlucky at having 4 goals disallowed but credit to Pats who were more clinical in front of goal.

Hanover Harps 0 - 3 Ballymurphy Celtic
Kevin Foley netted a hat trick as Ballymurphy finished off their league campaign with a win. Hanover started well enough, and Jack Murphy brought a good save from Kyle Foley in the Celtic goal early on. As Celtic grew into the game Jack Foley had their first real sight on goal but with only the keeper to beat, he dragged his shot wide from a tight angle. Harps then missed a great chance to take the lead on the half hour, Brandon Redmond's header was goal bound but the slightest of touches from Paul Foley deflected the ball onto the crossbar and out for a corner. With half time approaching Ballymurphy struck for the opening goal, Dara Tobin teeing up Kevin Foley to fire home from 8 yards. Celtic impressed in the second half but but Jason Cogley twice shot over when well placed. At the other end Hanover had chances for Shane Kelly and Jack Murphy, both efforts saved by Kyle Foley. We 15 minutes left Ballymurphy, and Kevin Foley got their second, Jack Foley with the assist as Foley calmly slotted home after beating the offside trap. With 5 minutes left Foley completed his hat trick, Aaron O'Toole made the hard yards down the left before crossing for Foley to finish off the scoring. Best for Celtic included hat trick man Kevin Foley, Jamie Doyle and Dara Tobin. Best for Hanover on the day were Brandon Redmond, Jack Murphy and Jason Brennan.

Parkville United 1 - 2 Killeshin FC

Killeshin claimed the points in this keenly contested tie courtesy of a Dragos Mamaliga brace, the win not enough to leapfrog their hosts to a third-place finish in the league. Parkville's Tom Pollard came close to opening the scoring on 15 minutes but was denied by the keeper. Nick Nolan then saw his effort saved before Killeshin hit the front midway through the half. Dragos Mamaliga going on a surging run before scoring with a super effort to the bottom corner. Killeshin controlled the game for the next 10 minutes but Jason Murphy pulling off a couple of fine saves to keep Parkville in the

game. The second half saw more of the same with a closely fought game and chances at a premium. Nick Nolan brought another good save from the Killeshin keeper on the hour mark before Joe Sunderland was also denied an equaliser by a smart save. Parkville paid for those missed chances with 20 minutes left when a brilliant free kick from Mamaliga flew into the top corner. In fairness to Parkville, they kept going and were rewarded for their efforts 5 minutes from time, Ronan Healy won a corner and Tommy Murphy's excellent delivery was flicked on by Cian Madden to the back of the net to give United hope. Killeshin had to withstand a few nervous moments before the final whistle but held on for the points. Best for Parkville were Robbie Sheridan and Nick Nolan. Best for Killeshin were Dragos Maliga, Micheal O Rourke, Bryan Lawler and Ian Brennan.
