Thursday 14 April 2022

Hanover Harps welcomed Balymurphy to the Plots this evening. It was a fierce encounter played out between two well-matched teams where every loose ball was contested, and both sets of players looked to get the ball down and play football. The early exchanges led to a colossal battle between Senan Sheehan and James Flood with neither player giving any ground. The deadlock was finally broken when Conor Wall released Andrian Robu to open the scoring in the 25th minute. The visitors responded with loads of pressure and Charley Foley was unlucky to see his effort come off the post. Bally had the better of the chances with Antony Brennan making some brave saves. The visitors grabbed an equaliser through an excellent finish by Oisin Fogarty and this is how the first half finished.

In the second half it was the visitors who started the brighter and were ahead  through an excellent solo run and finish from James Flood. Hanover didn’t let their heads drop and were level minutes later from Mael O Rock. They kept the pressure up and following a great run by O Rock who crossed to find the head of Andrian Robu on the far post to bring the scores level.  With Hanover ahead again, they pressed and grapped two late goals by Shay O Grady following a scrap in the box and a lovely solo run and finish by Masfie Islam to round off a 5-2 win for the home team.

Best for Ballymurphy were: Jack Ivers, Sean O Brien and Dylan King.

Best for Hanover: were Antony Brennan, Alan Bowe, Senan Sheehan and Andrian Robu.

Vale Wanderers AFC   2,  St Anne’s AFC  7
Saturday 16 April 2022  Superbowl Leighlinbridge (Vale Wanderer

A nice morning for a game at the Superbowl saw Division 1 winners St Annes beat Vale Wanderers at home. An entertaining game of football from the start to the finish but on the day the away side were too strong for Vale. A well deserved win for Saint Anne’s.

Scorers for St. Anne’s: Jack McDonnell, Niall Hickey, Eoin Mulhall, Callum McElory, Ennae Byrne, Séamus Lunck and Seán Rowan while Max O’Connor, Jack Julian and Shane Baldwin stood out.

Under 14 Cup 2022

Vale Wanderers AFC   2,  Ballymurphy Celtic  2
Saturday 16 April 2022  Superbowl Leighlinbridge (Vale Wanderers)

An enthralling u14 cup game that had a bit of everything for those present with 90 mins unable to seperate the two evenly matched teams, the South Carlow side hitting the front early on through a fine Conor Walsh strike, Odhran Murphy cancelling this shortly after from close range for the home side . A Ballymurphy corner found the head of the inrushing Toby Joyce to restore their lead with his namesake Adam unlucky with his penalty from a Vale handball just missing the top corner.

This let-off was punished in the 1st minute of the second half, Odhran Murphy again with the finish low to Noel Jordan’s left for an improving Vale deserved equaliser. From here on it was typical cup fare, no quarter asked or given, chances at both ends agonisingly falling short. Adam Joyce for Ballymurphy on the stroke of full time desperately unlucky to see his brilliant effort go the wrong side of the post meaning extra time was neededas the game finished 2-2 in normal time.

Similar to normal time both sides threw the kitchen sink at it with Vales Alan Fitzgerald’s effort brilliantly pushed on to the crossbar by the excellent Noel Jordan, the resultant corner rebounding to Ciaran Bambrick, and his fly-kick unlucky to miss the target. So it was on to penalties to decide as sporting a game as you’d wish to see to decide the eventual winner. The afore-mentioned Noel Jordan being the hero with 2 brilliant saves to ensure Ballymurphy’s passage to the semi-final 4-3.

Best for Ballymurphy were Tom Kehoe and Adam Joyce.

Best for Vale were Odhran Murphy, Alan Fitzgerald, Daniel Brennan and Adam Dowling.

Burrin Celtic AFC   1,  Hanover Harps AFC  2
Saturday 16 April 2022  The Valley Ballon (Burrin Celtic)

Burrin Celtic hosted the U13 league champions Hanover Harps in this early morning game at The Valley. Hanover started brightly and Burrin were fortunate not to fall behind in the early stages. However, Burrin soon got their defence organised and their tremendous work rate throughout the remainder of the half, frustrated their opponents, keeping the game scoreless at half time.

The second half began in similar fashion but Hanover finally got a breakthrough goal when a cross from the right wing fell to the unmarked Ronan Dooley who took full advantage. Minutes later Hanover went two up when a corner kick fell to Timmy Adeleye who finished well from close range. Burrin saved their best football of the season for the remaining 20 minutes and deservedly reduced the deficit to a single goal following some lovely combination play and a cross from Tadgh Campbell that was headed to goal by Glen Cantwell. The Burrin boys sensed that an equaliser was on the cards and they created lots of problems for Hanover’s defence in the remaining 10 minutes. However, the final whistle came too soon and Hanover held on to go through to the semi-finals 1-2.

Best for Hanover Harps were Timmy Adeleye, Joe Dermody and Peter Breen Parle.

Best for Burrin were Robbie Kelliher, Callum Butler, Colm Donald and Daniel Fernandez.

Crettyard United AFC   1,  New Oak Boys AFC  1
Saturday 16 April 2022  Crettyard Utd

Cretty v New Oak in the quarter final of the cup, a brilliant game played by two very good teams. The first half was evenly contested with Kalem Buggy with the best of the chances for Cretty while New Oak missed a great chance right on half time but the game was scoreless at the break.

The second half was pretty much the same until Cretty’s Michael Brennan scored an unbelievable goal from 20 yards into the top corner. New Oak responded well pushing high up the pitch and were rewarded with 7 minutes remaining when they broke through the strong Cretty defence and scored with a really good finish to make it 1-1 and that’s the way it finished at full time.

Extra time failed to produce a winning goal and the game went to penalties with New Oak advancing 3-2 on penalties.

Best for Cretty were Danial Maguire, Mark Dowling and Michael Brennan.

Saturday 16 April 2022  Rathvilly behind graveyard (Slaney Rovers

After the break, Kristen Doyle’s pass semt Kallan McCabe through on goal, his pace getting him to the ball before the ‘keeper as he slotted into the empty net. Tomas ‘Mossie’ Keane and Will Darcy combined to set up Garrett Doyle to score off the post and later on, a fine individual effort from Kallan McCabe made it 4-0 for a deserved win for Slaney.

Best for Slaney were Fionn Foley, Nathan Young and Daniel o Neill.

Ballymurphy Celtic White   1,  New Oak Boys AFC  0
Saturday 16 April 2022  Ballymurphy

This was a hotly contested first round tie with the top two sides in the U12 league locking horns.
Ballymurphy started the better with Charlie Foley testing the opposing keeper on 10 mins. Then on 16 mins the only goal of the game came following a hand ball on the edge of the New Oak box. From the dead ball, Shane Jordan drilled the ball low and it fizzed past the keeper 1-0 for Ballymurphy. New Oak then forced a few corners before the break but the excellent Dylan King and Jack Ivers kept the New Oak Boys out. HT 1-0

The second half was a cagey affair with not a lot of chances for either side as Bally protected their 100% home record. New Oak had two good chances on 45 and 48 minutes but both were well saved by Jack Ivers. Bally dropped their goal scorer back for the last ten mins and this snuffed out any chance of a New Oak Boys equaliser with the game ending 1-0 to Ballymurphy.

Best for New Oak were Kayden Walker Dargan, Cormac Lowry and Keane Hutton

Best for Bally were Dylan King, Shane Jordan and Joe Walsh.

Under 12 Cup 2022

Hanover Harps AFC   3,  St Anne’s AFC  1
Saturday 16 April 2022  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

Hanover welcomed St. Anne’s to The Plots today and were nearly caught cold in the first minute with a close effort. They settled down after this and had all of the early chances but couldn’t find the net. The home side passed the ball around well but couldn’t find the all important goal. Shay O Grady, Abdrian Robu, Nathaniel Jakubiec all squandering good choices. Diarmuid Redmond saw a header hit the bar from a Robu cross but the sides were level at half time.

The second half was much the same with the home team taking possession of the ball and on 35 minutes broke the deadlock with a fine finish by Mael O Rock. They were soon 2-0 up through Shay O Grady and then Andrian Robu made it 3-0 for Hanover. The visitors grabbed a consolation goal from a free kick in the dying minutes and it finished 3-1 to Hanover who progress to the quarter finals.

Best for Hanover: Masfie Islam, Joe McDermot and James (J.P.) O Connor.

Saturday 16 April 2022  St Patricks College via George bernard shaw

Early morning kick off with Fiaccs starting the quicker without making many clear cut chances. Burrin kept plugging away and their defence held solid. Leah Cummins Nelson had the best chance for Fiaccs but shot straight at the keeper. Two mins from half time Leah Fitzpatrick took her chance well and scored what turned out to be the winner. Half-time 0-1 to Burrin.

As much as Fiaccs pushed in the second half the chances didn’t come and a resolute Burrin held on for the win

Best for Burrin were Leah Fitzpatrick, Kate Kearns and Sarah Duffy.
