Slaney Rovers B 0 - 3 Fortbarrington FC

This game kicked off in Rathvilly, with home side Slaney Rovers taking on Fortbarrington FC.

After that, however, Fortbarrington began dominating the possession and created chance after chance, but nobody could find that clinical finish. Nevertheless, by the end of the half, Fortbarrington were playing great football and were unlucky to see the score as 0-0 at halftime.

Five minutes after the restart, Fortbarrington won a penalty after Brandon Brennan was brought down in the box. The Fortbarrington captain Dylan Brennan stepped up and placed the ball into the top corner of the net to make it 1-0 to Fortbarrington. Fortbarrington then began to push on and look for more goals. Brandon Brennan then whipped the ball in from the right-wing, and it somehow found the left corner of the Slaney net. 2-0 to Fortbarrington. Slaney tried to find a goal back, but Fortbarrington carried on with excellent defending to see the game out and pick up the three points away from home. Best for Slaney Rovers B - Conor Mulvany, Rory McColl, and Adam Martin. Best for Fortbarrington FC - Brandon Brennan and Dylan Brennan.

Fortbarrington FC 1 - 5 Round Tower Rovers

Round Tower Rovers maintained their push for the Division 2 title by making the trip to Athy to take on Fortbarrington. Although coming into the game on the back of six straight defeats, Fortbarrington took the game to the visitors early, thus creating plenty of chances for teams in the first half. Nonetheless, Rovers found the breakthrough after 20 minutes, coming from the capable left boot of Mickey Keogh. Ten minutes later, Baltinglass and Keogh found another goal after a brilliant volley soared past the Fortbarrington goalkeeper. However, Fortbarrington did not let these two goals affect their desire to find the back of the net and scored one just before half-time. A beautiful over-the-top ball found Brandon Brennan in space, who coolly finished leaving the half-time score 2-1.

In the second half, Rovers pushed to score more goals to win the game. For the majority of the half, they dominated the chances and possession. Enda Butler made it 3-1 to Round Tower with a superb strike, and Mickey Keogh was unfortunate not to complete the hat trick shortly after. Nevertheless, Rovers did find two more goals against a Fortbarrington team that had given it their all. These goals came through strikes by Ben O’Reilly and Benny Quigley and ensured the 5-1 victory for Round Tower Rovers. An exciting game with plenty of opportunities, this win means that Rovers maintain their challenge within this Division 2 title race.

Baltinglass Town 5

Fortbarrington FC 0

On a damp Sunday morning in Parkmore, Baltinglass Town took on Fortbarrington FC in callous conditions. These conditions meant both teams relied on long balls, and both lived off trying to win the second balls. Nonetheless, Fortbarrington went down to ten men early when their player was penalised in quick succession for a late challenge and a deliberate handball, meaning two yellows were shown. However, the deadlock was broken shortly after the sending off when Baltinglass's Kevin Osborne latched on to a deflected cross and finished coolly into the bottom corner to make it 1-0. Soon after, it was 2-0 when Gary Carroll was sent through on goal, and he finished beautifully past the far post. The game played out with chances at either end, and it looked like that would be all the action for the first half, but it was not to be. Instead, Baltinglass were reduced to nine men, with two sending offs in quick succession before the half could finish.

It was nine versus ten on the field, with the second half starting. However, this disadvantage didn't stop Baltinglass from piling forward at every opportunity to try to put the game to bed. Baltinglass added to their tally early into the second half when a corner whipped in by Dylan Gately was met well by Gary Carroll, who scored his second and Baltinglass's third goal of the game. At this stage of the game, Baltinglass were cruising and added a fourth and fifth goal through the excellent Tom Parker. There was still time for the fourth sending off of the game when the Fortbarrington keeper was shown a red card for dissent. In the end, it was an entertaining game considering the conditions, and Baltinglass will be happy to come through a tricky tie by winning 5-0 to advance to the next round of the Carlow Cup. Best for Baltinglass - Tom Parker, Michael Conroy, Dylan Gateley and Gary Carroll.

Vale B, aided by several under 19s, made the trip to Fortbarrington on Sunday. The game started well with both teams pressing and looking for a break in the final third. However, the injection of energy and pace from Vale's U19s proved the catalyst for the 3 points. Vale put Fortbarrington under pressure early and kept knocking on the door, with Fortbarrington defending well for the first thirty minutes. Vale broke the deadlock when Adam Dunne nodded home at the back post from a corner. Dunne then nearly grabbed his second just after. His speculative bicycle kick came agonisingly close to hitting the back of the net. With not long left in the first half, Tommy Cummins got on the end of a Mark Fitz ball, and he flicked it beautifully past the Fortbarrington goalkeeper to make the halftime score 0-2 in favour of Vale.

In the second half, both teams put each other under pressure as Fortbarrington looked for a way back into the game. However, it wasn't long until it was 0-3 when Vale's Mark Fitz struck a beautiful free kick into the top corner. Fortbarrington did defend well towards the later stages of the game; however, the score could have been anything, but for a combination of good keeping, crossbars, and misses by Vale which left the final score at 3-0.
