Killeshin AFC   3,  Vale Wanderers AFC  3
Saturday 20 November 2021  Quakers Field, Killeshin

Killeshin started the game with real intent and an Adam Farrell corner in the 3rd minute was met by Pauric Moran but his header was cleared off the line. On 4 minutes Farrell raided down the left, linked with Killian McCutcheon whose pass to Jack Milton saw the latter set up Michael Dooley to power the ball low past the Vale keeper and give Killeshin an early  lead. On 10 minutes a Sean Dowling corner was again met by Pauric Moran and again his headed effort was cleared off the Vale goal line. Vale had their first opportunity in the 17th minute from an indirect free kick but the shot went high and wide. Killeshin scored their second in the 23rd minute when Michael Dooley rounded his man and picked out Adam Farrell outside the box and he struck a fierce shot to the top corner. A Sean Dowling corner fell to Dooley in the 25th minute but his effort cleared the bar. Vale were struggling to get up the pitch but had a shot clear the crossbar on the half hour mark. Killeshin pushed for a third when Shane McGuire released Dooley down the left and his cross saw Jack Milton through on goal but his effort went wide. With 3 minutes remaining in the half a long ball from Vale wasn’t dealt with by the Killeshin defence and Fionn Power took advantage with a low shot past Ben Fitzgerald to make it 2-1 at the break.

Vale had a strong wind in the second half and went long putting the Killeshin rearguard under pressure. Ben Fitzgerald was called upon in the 42nd minute to make a fine save. A minute later Michael Dooley put Adam Farrell through on goal but the finish went just wide of the target. Killeshin would rue their missed chances when Ciaran Nolan capitalised on a poor clearance to level the tie in the 53rd minute. Killeshin responded when Jack Milton crossed for Zach Owens in the 55th minute but his effort cleared the bar. On 57 minutes Vale added a third goal to take the lead. A cross from the right into the Killeshin penalty area wasn’t dealt with and Keelan Byrne got between two defenders for an easy finish. Killeshin’s Jack Milton broke the Vale lines on the hour mark but didn’t get the right contact to level the match. Killeshin were guilty of causing their own problems by overplaying in the wrong areas at times and in the 66th minute this almost cost them again but for a great save by Ben Fitzgerald. With 10 minutes remaining Danny Malone got on the end of a cross but the Vale keeper made a decent save. On 75 minutes Sean Dowling played a great through ball for Michael Dooley and he lobbed the out rushing keeper to get his second. Killeshin pushed for the winner in the dying minutes but couldn’t rescue the 3 points and were left wondering how they let a comfortable 2 goal lead slip.

Best for Killeshin were Adam Farrell and Michael Dooley .

Vales Alfie Barcoe and Ian Robb stood out for the Visitors.

Hanover Harps AFC   6,  Nurney Villa AFC  1
Saturday 20 November 2021  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

Hanover came out on top in this game with both teams numbers being affected by a clash of sports. Nurney made the early running in this game and took the lead through a screamer of a free kick taken by Ben Collier. Nurney almost scored a second minutes later with a strike going narrowly wide with Hanover struggling to find their feet. Hanover eventually got a foothold in the game and scored an equaliser when a fine run and cross by Ryan Fitzgerald was volleyed to the net by Jamie Walker. Roland Sanni made it 2-1 with a fine solo run and finish. Jomilio Salvador made it 3-1 from a Senan Ryan corner. Joel Abu scored a 4th when played in by Jamie Walker. Ryan Fitzgerald then scored a fine header from a Joel Abu corner. Senan Ryan scored a 6th with a left foot finish when a good save by the Nurney keeper fell to his feet. Nurney then lost a defender to injury which didn’t help their cause. Hanover’s Hugh McDermott was called into action to make a good save from another well struck Nurney free kick. A combination of wasteful finishing and determined defending by a tiring Nurney side meant the game finished in a deserved Hanover win.

A good performance all round by the Hanover squad.

Best for Nurney: Anthony Dermody, Shane Farrell and Manus Murphy.

St Patrick’s Boys AFC   7,  St Joseph’s AFC  1
Saturday 20 November 2021  The Meadows Graiguecullen (St Pats Boys)

It was perfect weather for a good game of soccer. The sun was shining and it was crisp but not particularly cold. This was the second meeting of both teams this season. The last resulted in a hard-fought win for St. Pat’s against a valiant Josephs team. On home ground St. Pat’s started the better. Issac Boyle was first off the mark and scored from a well worked run into the box from the left side after 6 minutes. It took St. Pat’s a further 11 minutes before Ruairc Murray sprinted into the box and put the ball to the right of the goalkeeper, low and fast for 2-0 to St. Pat’s. For the next 10 minutes Alfie White peppered the box with crosses from the right side. About 27 minutes in Alfie was rewarded with a goal of his own. Stout defending by the Josephs team with some excellent saves from their goal keeper meant the half ended

3-0 to St. Pat’s.

St. Pat’s started strong in the second half and not long in Ruairc Murray struck the ball low and into the corner beyond the goalkeeper. A little after a minute of been introduced a fresh legged Henry Nyamai. pounced on a loose ball in the box and scored. St. Joseph’s fought back hard with stout defending and some fine saves to keep St. Pat’s at bay. Their efforts paid off when they pulled a goal back with a kick from outside the box which seemed to miss every St. Pat’s and Josephs player in the box and ended up in the net. Four minutes later Josep Parres (Pep) who was introduced into the game about 10 minutes before scored after a number of near misses and the game ended in a win for the home team.

St Fiacc’s AFC   1,  Burrin Celtic AFC  0
Saturday 20 November 2021  Knockbeg School

A tough game this morning played in difficult, winter like conditions out in Knockbeg College. The first half was an even contest with both sides probing and looking to gain the upper hand in the game. Chances were few and far between but both goalkeepers, Cody Tucker for Fiaccs and Dylan Cunningham for Burrin, had to be alert and make important saves. The deadlock was finally broken after 20 minutes, with Shane Kelly and the lively Sean Lydon-Hennessy combining to cross into the box for captain for the day, Lucas O’Neill, to head home to make it 1-0 to St. Fiaccs.

St. Fiaccs came out with extra vigour and were much improved in the second half and began to create more chances, with the excellent Calin Iancu and Shane Grant pulling the strings in midfield. Patrick O’Connor’s pin point crosses kept the pressure on the Burrin defence causing them all sort of headaches and with the introduction of Rian Ayres up front to pair with Dylan Murphy the chances were starting to build up for St. Fiaccs in search of that elusive second goal that never came. The away side had a couple of chances to create a nervy last few minutes for St. Fiaccs but the back line of Rob Coleman, Aidan Bradley, the impressive Josh Clear and Ryan Donnelly-Finn held strong and never gave an inch to see out the clean sheet and a deserved 1-0 win.

All around, a much improved team performance by St. Fiaccs with special mention to Josh Clear, Calin Iancu and Rob Coleman.

Best for Burrin Celtic were Dylan Cunningham in goal, Johnny Maher in defence and the lively Dylan Ruane.

As Slaney simply ran out of steam, Buggy scored two more for his hat-trick, Jayden Lee Murphy scored his second, Eanna Dunican got on the scoresheet and Emily Kelly capped a fine performance when she rifled home a free kick, from just outside the box, to reward the efforts of Danny Serafin, Cormac McGannon and Zac Nolan.

Hanover Harps AFC   1,  Burrin Celtic AFC  1
Saturday 20 November 2021  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

This was an exciting game from start to finish, fantastic soccer being played from both sides. Burrin Celtic seemed to apply a lot of pressure but the Hanover defence stood strong to keep them at bay.

Match of the Week  – 20/11/21

Boland double but it’s Fiach Byrne who stars as Parkville finally kill off gritty Baltinglass Town

Parkville United AFC  4 – 3 Baltinglass Town AFC.

Under 14 League Division Two.

On a fine dry morning in Tullow, Parkville met near neighbours Baltinglass without a puff of wind and both teams were looking to play the ball about, but both were guilty of misplaced passes, which ruined any meaningful continuity.

Parkville were also shooting on sight, but it was mainly from distance and didn’t trouble Stephen Patterson in the Baltinglass goal.

Report by Bob Howson

Fiach Byrne who played upfront for Parkville in a roving role, across the front line,  showed his pace and trickery, out wide right when he outstripped a Baltinglass defender and sent in a cross to Phoenix Mullins, but he shot wide and the chance went abegging.

Parkville were pressing hard, but the Baltinglass defence was very resilient and they countered every Parkville move, in those early minutes.

After ten minutes, Donal Metcalfe, who had largely been ploughing a lone furrow, up front, settled on a long ball, out of defence and shielded it well and then calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner to give Baltinglass an early 0-1 lead, in what was a well-worked goal.

Baltinglass’s Reece Quinn-Burke was working very hard in defence and mid-field to keep Parkville at bay and he put in some thunderous challenges.

A long ball out of defence found Bradley Cummins from inside of the area, but Kian Kinsella, put his body on the line, in order to block the shot and save a certain goal and the ball was eventually cleared.

Fiach Byrne was showing his trickery and he won a corner that was eventually cleared and  then  another good run by Byrne  and he slipped a pass to Bradley Cummins, but he shot well wide.

Following another corner, the ball bobbled about in the area and Conor Boland ‘thrashed’ the ball into the bottom corner of the net to level the scores at 1-1 on twenty one minutes and giving Stephen Patterson absolutely no chance.

Just two minutes later, with the ball being loose in the Baltinglass area, Conor Boland completed his brace for Parkville to go 2-1 in front, as once again he slammed home from twelve yards, with a controlled shot.

Despite these two quick-fire goals, Baltinglass settled and were playing some nice open football and were not giving Parkville an easy ride.

However, Fiach Byrne showed up again – this time on a fine run that took him deep into the Baltinglass penalty area and he shot from close range, but it squirmed out of Stephen Patterson’s hands and was finished off by Oliver Dyl, from only a yard out, to make the score 3-1 to Parkville.

Reece Quinn-Burke was still the rock that a lot of Parkville’s attacks were foundering on and he was well supported by Stephen Patterson, as his punching clear was excellent to thwart Parkville’s attackers.

Half-time came with Parkville enjoying that 3-1 lead, which on the balance of play was well deserved.

Baltinglass started well, in the second-half and they won a free-kick taken by Cathal McNamara and from it, Brian O’Neill smacked the ball against the crossbar and it was then cleared by the Parkville defence.

Baltinglass were putting plenty of pressure on Parkville, with Joe Kelly prominent, as they took the game to Parkville – they won a couple of corners and a couple of shots went wide.

Donal Metcalfe went on a mazy dribble where he beat two Parkville defenders, but he then ran the ball out for a goal-kick.

Bradley Cummins tried his luck from 30 yards, but the shot was easily saved by Stephen Metcalfe and then Baltinglass had a good spell of possession, but then Parkville hit another goal, with about ten minutes to go when Bradley Cummins shot into the bottom corner to make the score 4-1 and it  looked all over for Baltinglass.

However, a breakaway by Joe Kelly saw him get through the Parkville defence and he lofted the ball over Dwyer Murphy to make the score 4-2, through sheer persistence and give Baltinglass a chance, even at this late stage.

Donal Metcalfe worked himself another opportunity when he shot a couple of yards wide, but it was close.

With only minutes to go – Cathal McNamara picked up a loose ball – wide right and he hit the ball over Dwyer Murphy to make the score 4-3 and make Parkville very nervous.

However, despite all their efforts in the last few minutes – Baltinglass just couldn’t get an equaliser and it ended 4-3 to Parkville, but Baltinglass can be proud of their comeback.

Man of the Match was Fiach Byrne who stood out head and shoulders of the other players.

Standing out for Parkville were Conor Boland, Niall O’Byrne and Bradley Cummins, whilst best for Baltinglass were Stephen Patterson, Reece-Quin Burke, Christopher O’Toole and Cathal McNamara.

Saturday 20 November 2021  The Meadows Graiguecullen (St Pats Boys)

A draw at the Meadows saw St Pats take the early lead with a well taken goal by Thomas Lawler then St Josephs equalised to make it 1-1 and another long range effort shortly after to make it 2-1 then with an equaliser coming from player of the match Summer Doorley whose efforts and work rate on the pitch have paid off but it wasn’t finished just yet! A goal from Josephs put both sets of supporters on the edge but with the introduction of Cathal Farrell Kian Scully and Joey Doorley saw them scramble for a loose ball in the box only to see Cathal Farrell smash home the equaliser to bring the game to an end 3-3.

Good performances from Darragh McEvoy, Captain Thomas Lawler, Ronan Frazer and newly introduced Mickey Hand. Others who played well were Fionn McGrath, Emily Kelly, Molloy Cowman, Jamie and Brandon Dean. Good performances up front from Kasper Kowinski,  Evans Azeta, Leon Kelly.

Vale Wanderers AFC   0,  New Oak Boys AFC  5
Saturday 20 November 2021  Superbowl Leighlinbridge (Vale Wanderers)

The second matchday of U12s Division 1 threw up another difficult match for Vale as their rotating squad faced New Oak A at home. The opening 10 minutes were an even enough affair, with most of the play happening in midfield. Matchday captain and goalkeeper Luke Honeyball was called into action twice before New Oak got their breakthrough after 16mins.
The half finished 0-1 (Jamie McCormack) with Vale having slightly the better of it in the final five minutes of the half and Joey Drea seeing a header from a corner blocked on the New Oak line.

The second half kicked off with Vale making a number of changes and while they were working hard, it was getting harder to get out of their own half. A 4-minute spell on 35mins saw Ruairi Delaney grab a brace to make it 0-3 to the visitors. But Vale lifted themselves again and Matthew Jordan combined with Callum Byrne and Alan Lawlor to create a good chance but the shot was charged down. Joshua Walsh and Romeo Sithibe made excellent tackles in the middle of the pitch to keep Vale in contention but the killer blows came in the 49th minute (Kian Hutton) and 56th minute when Ruairi Delaney completed his hat-trick to make it 0-5 to the visitors. A couple of final attacks from Vale didn’t provide the consolation goal they were looking for but they can look ahead to upcoming fixtures with optimism having given their all in this game.

Best for Vale were Luke Honeyball, Joshua Walsh, Matthew Jordan & James Aughney.

New Oak’s top performers were Conor Dooley, Fiach Donnelly, Daniel Custerson and Kealan Brennan.

Saturday 20 November 2021  Ballylinan (St Annes)

First half finished 1-0 to home team

Second half Ballymurphy kept putting St Anne’s under pressure but St Anne’s defense kept the lines strong. On the 35th min St Anne’s broke through with great control from No. 9 Corey Davis who put the ball in the back of the net making the score 2-0 to St Annes. Both sides fought hard until Ballymurphy’s Sean Dalton got through and was left one on one with the keeper and he stuck the ball in the back of the net bringing the score to 2-1 after 48 mins.
St Anne’s turned on their attack mode and put Ballymurphy’s defense under pressure and they then scored a classic goal from No 10 Myles Nelligan. After a lot of great play from Ballymurphy, St Anne’s won a penalty on a counter attack. Penalty taken by No.10 Myles Nellie’s who scored goal number 4. Neither team gave up right until the final whistle. St Anne’s winning the match 4-1

Saturday 20 November 2021  Burrin Rd Carlow (New Oak Boys)

From the very start Parkville set the tone for an excellent team performance. Early on they had a number of chances and on the 8th minute they broke the deadlock with a toe poke finish against the on rushing Mikey McCarty in the New Oak goal. On 13 minutes Parkville doubled their lead when a looping deflection went in over the keeper. New Oak rallied and got through on the right and left a couple of times but couldn’t make it count as Parkville defended excellently through-out. On 29 minutes Parkville made it 0-3 with some nice one touch passing and a tidy finish.

Parkville started the 2nd half in the same fashion with number 6 dominating the game for them and he made it 0-4 right after the break with a good finish from Max Bolger. On 39 minutes Luana Whelan had a great shot deflected wide which led to a couple of corners for New Oak as they tried to get back into the game but Parkville soon broke and added a 5th with more fine passing. New Oak didn’t give up and eventually got the consolation their efforts deserved when a Dara Tunstead shot somehow found the net. Parkville finished the scoring on 55 minutes to make the final score 1-6 to the visitors.

Nurney Villa AFC   0,  Burrin Celtic AFC  1
Saturday 20 November 2021  Newtown Rd Nurney

Burrin Celtic edged out Nurney in this competitive game played in fine conditions, with both teams giving excellent performances. The game started off at a lively pace, and after 5 minutes, Sarah Murphy of Nurney went on a terrific run down the left-hand side, going past 3 players, that resulted in a fine save by Hannah Hutton in the Burrin Celtic goal with two Nurney Villa strikers lurking. Shortly afterwards, Burrin Celtic broke into the left side of the Nurney penalty area, and the shot from a tight angle went just wide. Both teams were putting some nice moves and touches together, and after 15 min Burrin Celtic worked the ball to the penalty area, and from just inside the right-hand side of the penalty area, Sammy Salter fired a terrific finish to the top of the Nurney goal to put Burrin Celtic ahead. Both teams continued pushing forward, with Zara Farrell in the Nurney goal and Hannah Hutton for Burrin Celtic both pulling off great saves. Approaching half-time, the lively Natalia Deka for Nurney finally breached the tight Burrin Celtic defence, beating the goalie to the ball, but the ball struck the foot of the post before being scrambled clear for a corner by Burrin.

Both teams battled hard in the second half, and as the half progressed, Nurney pushed forward for an equaliser, but the well organised, determined Burren Celtic defence held firm. The latter had some dangerous counterattacks as the game opened up, but the game finished 1-0 to Burrin Celtic.

Best for Nurney were Sarah Murphy, Roisin Murphy and Kelly Tobin.

Best for Burrin: Julia Crawford, Molly Maher and Ellie Byrne.

Burren won a corner 13 mins into the second and the ball made its way through to Zoe Clarke who managed to get the ball over the keeper into the net to give them a 2 1 lead. But a never say die attitude from this Fiaccs side saw them battle back again and deservedly equalise through Ashlee Smith after some great play from Nadine O Reilly.

Best for Vale were Alice Hickey, Zoe Clarke and Liadh Nolan.
