A devastating first half showing from United and Lee Salter saw them ease past St Pat's to maintain the pressure on New Oak at the top. The opening goal arrived on 11 minutes, Jack Brady's ball over the top released Salter and he held off the challenge from Anthony Lawler to slot home. We Pats struggling to get into the game the second arrived shortly afterwards, this time Crig Comerford opening the visitors defence for Salter to net again. The game was as good as over when Salter netted his third from the penalty spot on the half hour. Never a side to ease up, Crettyard added 3 more before the break, Gearoid Cuddihy crossed for David Kelly to head home at the back post for the fourth before Cuddihy got on the scoresheet himself after United were awarded a second penalty. Kelly finished off the first half scoring with a neat volley, Comerford again with the assist as Crettyard went into half time 6-0 ahead. Pats managed to hold it together in the second half and created a few half chances for Liam Byrne, Chris Gual and Jamie Malone but all were wide of the mark. At the other end Danny Curry made a couple of fine saves to keep Crettyard at bay but United did have the final say as Cuddihy netted his second late on as he controlled Danny Doyle'cross and slotted a seventh for the hosts who had stand out showings on the day from Craig Comerford, David Kelly and Danny Doyle. Best for Pats were Chris Gaul, Danny Moran, Anto Lawlor and Dylan Costigan

Ballymurphy Celtic 0

In one of the few games to survive the weather at the weekend Crettyard took full points to close the gap on New Oak to just 3 points as this season's title race begins to hot up. Crettyard began with the string wind on their backs and dominated for long periods but were struggling in front of goal. Gearoid Cuddihy cracked a free kick off the post midway through the half and the usually lethal Lee Salter saw a couple of efforts go the wrong side of the post. United finally opened the scoring just after the half hour, Celtic failed to deal with a free kick into the penalty area and Salter pounced on the loose ball to slot it beyond Kyle Foley in the Ballymurphy goal. At the other end Anto Jordan and Jack Foley were a handful for the United defence but couldn't get clear sight of goal. The second half saw wind assisted Celtic with more possession but chances came and went for Dara Tobin and Declan Brennan. In these tight games you have to take you chances went they come along or you get punished and that's exactly what Crettyard did. The introduction of Ryan Byrne brought new energy to the Crettyard attack and the chances started coming again. Kyle Foley denied Salter after he was released on goal by Danny Doyle on 75 minutes but 5 minutes later the young 'keeper was powerless to stop Doyle doubling the lead after good work from Salter and Byrne. As always with Celtic they battled to the end but it's rare for United to drop points from such a strong position. It's now 7 straight wins in the Premier Division for United since losing to Celtic back in November while Celtic haven't managed a 3 pointer since that game. Best for Crettyard on the day were Craig Comerford, Lee Salter and Danny Doyle while Ballymurphy were best served by Paul Kirwan, Killian Harvey and Mikey Sullivan.

The second goal would follow shortly and it was a carbon copy of the first, this time it was Tamara Agar who was hand to slot home. Both sides created chances for the remainder of the game but were guilty of wasting those opportunities and Crettyard held out for a deserved 3 points in a tough contest.Best for the winners were Aisling Behan, Tamara Agar, Suzanne Meagher and Patrice Whelan

Fergal Harmon in the Rovers goal then pulled off two smart saves to deny Lee Salter and Cuddihy. Lubohir Lesko responded with a long-range effort for Rovers which just cleared the bar as United went into half time 1-0 ahead. Two goals in 7 minutes shortly after the restart put the game to bed for the visitors. Cuddihy was involved again as he released Danny Doyle on goal, Doyle keeping his cool as he rounded the keeper and slotted into an empty net on 53 minutes.

Newpark AFC v Crettyard United
Ladies league 30/01 11:00
Newpark AFC 2 - 0 Crettyard United
This top of the table clash didn"t disappoint in Kilkenny on Sunday morning as both sides went on the offensive from the first minute. Niamh Power was a torn in the side of the Newpark defense throughout the entire encounter while at the other end the power and pace of Riah Lawson had the Crettyard defense at sixes and sevens at times. Despite the attacking threat of both sides they never really troubled either keeper and it was beginning to look like who scores first wins. Early in the second half it would Newpark that would make the breakthrough from a handball decision in the Crettyard box, Gemma Costigan slotting the resulting penalty into the bottom corner. Newpark were clever in their decision to take Lawson off the wing after this and push her through the middle to play on the break. Inside the last five minutes this would pay dividends as Lawson picked the ball up , skipped past four defenders and coolly slotted home for a fine individual goal and seal the victory. Standing out for Newpark in a fine team display were Tina Wright, Ciara Delaney and Riah Lawson while Patrice Whelan , Niamh Power and Aisling Behan did well for Crettyard

Crettyard United 3 - 1 Hanover Harps
Crettyard made it 4 league wins on the bounce to go third in the table as their title bid gains momentum. They had to work hard for these points tho as Harps took an early lead and defended well before United eventually got their goals. There was barely 2 minutes gone when the visitors hit the front, Aaron Kinsella finding the net to open the scoring. United pressed hard for an equaliser but solid defending and good goalkeeping from Steven Scanlon kept them at bay. The pressure eventually yielded a penalty just after the half hour, Bobby Dowling scoring at the second attempt after Scanlon saved the spot kick but was powerless to stop the rebound. Colin Campion for Hanover and Jack Brady for United traded missed chances as the sides went into the break at 1-1. Crettyard came out after the break in determined fashion but the first good chance of the half fell to Campion after Johnny Waters released him, Campion got past Bobby Dowling but his shot from the edge of the area whizzed past the post. Thereafter it was all Crettyard pressure, Scanlon pulling off a superb double save to deny Danny Doyle and Lee Salter. Another Scanlon save denied Colin Osborne as the 'keeper tipped his effort onto the post and Harry Lloyd cleared the rebound. The pressure had to tell and with 15 minutes left United got themselves in front. Ryan Byrne picked out an unmarked Lee Salter at the back post and Salter made no mistake as he slotted past Scanlon. Hanover tried to press for an equaliser but it was United that had the final word, Gearoid Cuddihy firing left footed from the edge of the area on 85 minutes to wrap it up for the winners. Best for United were Jack Brady, Danny Doyle and Niall Purcell. Hanover's best included goalkeeper Steven Scanlon, Harry Lloyd, Phil Neenan and Johnny Waters

Crettyard United v Vale Wanderers
Ladies league 16/01 14:00
Crettyard United 9 - 1 Vale Wanderers
A very much depleted Vale unit travelled to Killeen on Sunday afternoon and met a ruthless Crettyard attack. The pace on the Crettyard wings caused all sorts of problems in the early exchanges but Lisa Dermody stood firm in the Vale goal. Crettyard finally broke the deadlock on 25 minutes through the goal machine that is Aisling Behan and 3 minutes later she added her second. Niamh Power was the focal point of the Crettyard attack and added the third when she took on the Vale defence and rifled home from just outside, the box. Deirdre O’ Shea cut in from the left and made it 4 just before the break. An injury to the Vale backline meant they had to continue with 9 and the writing was very much on the wall then.Aoife Roche and Laura Kearney put in a serious shift in midfield to keep Crettyard at bay for large parts of the second half and reduced the arrears on 60 minutes when Kearney released Roche on the Crettyard keeper to slot the ball passed her. The Vale legs were starting to tire however, and Behan got her third and then turned provider for Power to add 2 more for her hat trick. Tamara Agar playing alongside Power in attack rounded off the scoring with a brace of her own to round off a fine team display. Aoife Roche, Laura Kearney, Noleen Maher and Lisa Dermody did well for Vale

Crettyard United 10 - 0 Dolmen Celtic
Lee Salter was again the star of the show for Crettyard as he netted 5 times in a game for the second time this season. Dolmen were in trouble almost from the off as Bobby Dowling headed United in front after just 3 minutes and 3 minutes later another header by Ryan Byrne from a perfect Gearoid Cuddihy cross made it 2-0. Danny Doyle had a goal chalked off for offside before Salter sprung the offside trap to slot home his first and United's third midway through the half. The hosts kept pushing and despite some heroic defending from the visitors Byrne netted his second just after the half hour to send Crettyard into half time 4 goals to the good. There was no let up from United in the second half as they and Salter went on the rampage. Salter added an early brace to complete his hat trick before firing a thunderbolt from 20 yards into the top corner for his fourth to make it 7-0 with still half an hour to play. Salter made it 8-0 with his fifth, the second time in as many games after racking 5 against Kilree in his last outing before the Christmas break. Jack Brady capped a fine performance with a brilliant strike on 75 minutes and Danny Doyle finished off the scoring with 10 minutes left on the clock as United hit double figures to reignite their title hopes and leave Dolmen deep in relegation trouble. Apart from Salter there were stand out performances from Jack Brady and Niall Purcell for the winners.

Newpark 5 Crettyard 5

An entertaining game took place in Kilkenny on a cold Sunday afternoon . Crettyard started a little brighter than the hosts and went ahead on 5 minutes, Deirdre O’Shea cutting in from the left and firing past the helpless keeper. Newpark started to get a foothold in the game and almost leveled through Ria Lawson and a Jenny Clifford free kick. Newpark were awarded an indirect free in the Crettyard box but quick thinking from Lawson and Clifford released Tina Wright for a tap in at the back post. Crettyard were awarded a comer on the half hour and their goal machine Aisling behan heade home to restore their advantage. Newpark were soon level again , Wright and Clifford combined to release Clifford who finished coolly.

The second half would continue in the same vain, Crettyard goin in front again, a quick free kick put Tamara Agar through on goal who made no mistake. Back came Newpark again , Annie Dunne with an excellent over the top pass released Chiara Cardillo whose first touch put her in to make it 3-3.

Now it was time for Newpark to take the lead , Jenny Clifford received the ball deep, taking on four defenders and firing a wonderful solo effort home.This time it was Crettyard’s turn to respond and Behan got her second of the game with a snapshot to level it up again. Crettyard scored their fifth when Tamara Agar got her second with a fine strike from a free kick. The scoring wasn’t finished there however , Abbie Wall played a stunning ball through to Amy Clifford who found herself through on goal only for the Crettyard keeper to make a fantastic save but unluckily the ball rebounded off the Crettyard defense and found its way into the net to tie the game up. Both teams deserve credit for a fantastic display

Celtic produced a huge shock on Sunday and a result that could have a huge impact on the destination of the league title come next April. History shows us that the winners of this league rarely drop points to teams outside of the top 4 and when the dust settles at the end United could well look back on this fixture with regret. As for the game it was a story of chances missed, by United, and chances taken by Celtic. Crettyard's woes in front of goal began as early as the second minute when Gearoid Cuddihy blazed over from close range. A few minutes later Ryan Byrne beat the offside trap but couldn't beat Kyle Foley in the Celtic goal with only the keeper to beat. It didn't get any better for the visitors as Danny Doyle passed up a hat trick of chances before the half hour mark and then Celtic made them pay. Jamie Doyle swung in a corner and Kevin Foley brilliantly headed home from 12 yards to send Celtic into the break 1-0 up. The second half was more of the same, United creating and missing chances, some solid defending and great goalkeeping denying the visitors. Having taken everything United could throw at them Celtic pounced again to double the lead with 20 minutes left. United could only half clear a corner and when it fell to Martin Kavanagh on the edge of the box, he sent a cracking half volley into the bottom corner. United had a chance to get back into the game 5 minutes later when they were awarded a penalty, but Kyle Foley made an excellent save to deny Danny Doyle. Foley produced another couple of saves late on to keep out Lee Salter as Celtic held on for the win. Best for Ballymurphy included Kevin Foley, Martin Kavanagh, and Kyle Foley in goal. On a bad day for United they had solid showings from Craig Comerford, Colin Osborne, and Niall Purcell.
