CARLOW JUVENILE LEAGUE – ROUND-UP

Under 16 League 2021/22

Hanover Harps AFC   4,  St Patrick’s Boys AFC  3
Saturday 19 March 2022  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

The conditions were perfect for this game of football. Hanover who had to give a walkover in the cup last week due to an accumulation of injuries and suspension really struggled to get 11 players on the field for this game.

The injured Aidan Ryan stepped up to play in the goal and  Leon Fitzpatrick lined out alongside his older brother Ryan for Hanover before having to play for his own age group.

This game gave St Pats an opportunity to halt Hanover’s charge to the league title and put an end to their 100% record in the league so far. With the sun in the face of the Pat’s defensive line Hanover were putting huge pressure on them from the kick off, the game started at a frantic pace. Hanover took the lead early on when a Senan Ryan corner was flicked on by Leon Fitzgerald to his older brother Ryan who planted the ball into the Pats net. Pats responded well to this and had equalised within 2 minutes.

A clearance from the Pats defence fell to the Hanover left back Cathal Brady about 5 yards inside his own half who spotted Ruairc Murray in the Pats goal off his line and sent a first time effort over his head and into the back of the net. Fifteen minutes gone and this game was being played at a hectic pace.

Leon Fitzpatrick was running the midfield and had too much guile and graft for the older more experienced Pats midfield. He sent a ball forward to the feet of Senan Ryan who side stepped his marker and took aim at the Pats goal and via a deflection it found its way into the back of the net to give Hanover a deserved 3-1 lead.

It was end-to-end for the next few minutes, just before the half-time whistle blew a Cathal Brady throw was sent into the box and seemed to be under control at the feet of a Pats defender but Alejandro Pons had different ideas, he dispossessed the defender dropped the shoulder to breeze by him and finished into the bottom corner to give Hanover a 4-1 lead at half-time.

Hanover started strong again in the second half but Pats upped their efforts from the first half. The influential Leon Fitzpatrick had to leave the match after 10 minutes in the second half to play his own game, leaving Hanover with 10 players to see the game out.

This gave Pats a lot more freedom on the ball and they started to get a stranglehold on the game. Hanover were dogged in defence and were reluctant to let Pats back into the game. Pats got there second goal when a quick corner wasn’t dealt with and they took their chance to make it 4-2. Pats kept piling forward but Ryan Fitzgerald, Jamie Coakley and Senan Ryan kept pushing the Pats defence back with every opportunity they had.

Pats eventually got their 3rd when some nice play around the box ended up with a Pats player getting a late goal to make it 4-3 despite the best efforts of Aidan Ryan to keep it out.

Hanover were not sitting in and trying to hold on to the win, James Horohan made a great run from right back and Jamie Coakley put the ball into his path but his shot went wide of the target.

Pats created a few more chances and had a couple of free kicks but stand-in keeper Aidan Ryan dealt with them comfortably. With 3 games remaining Hanover have claimed the league and remain unbeaten.

The Hanover squad put in a huge effort and had outstanding performances by Leon Fitzpatrick, Jamie Coakley and Cathal Brady.

A disappointed St Pats team had good performances from Ben Cullen, Marc Mulhall and Sean Murphy.

Bagenalstown AFC   1,  Hanover Harps AFC  5
Saturday 19 March 2022  McGrath Park Bagenalstown

Hanover Harp’s traveled to Bagenalstown on a windy but sunny afternoon and Hanover hoped to avenge their defeat at the hands of Bagenalstown last week.

Both sides started well and tried to get used to the cross wind but it was Hanover who took the lead and were quickest to attack a ball that was held up in the wind to head home the first through Sean Hayden.

Bagenalstown started to get a foothold in the game through some good play from Jack Kehoe and Adam Walsh in midfield but some good goal keeping kept Ian Craddock out on a couple of occasions. Hanover broke quickly and Aron Cunningham Burke put away the 2nd goal for them.

Bagenalstown got caught again with a ball over the top and Sam McHugh made it 3-0.  On the stroke of half time Ian Craddock pulled a ball across the box and James Cushion pushed it into the path of Adam Walsh to strike it sweetly and at half time the away team were 3-1 up.

The town started the second half well and tried hard to get their second but it wasn’t to be their day, Hanover scored from a corner making it 4-1. Bagenalstown never game up and the ball fell to Rory Donohue but the spin on it took it away from him and he sliced it. As Bagenalstown pushed forward with some powerful runs from Ian Craddock and John O’Reirdon they left themselves exposed for Hanover to get their fifth and the game finished Bagenalstown 1-5 Hanover

St Patrick’s Boys AFC   5,  Nurney Villa AFC  3
Saturday 19 March 2022  The Meadows Graiguecullen (St Pats Boys)

St. Pats welcomed Nurney Villa to The Meadows on a lovely sunny morning. Both teams started well with Nurney having the better of the play in the first 10mins.

It wasn’t long before Nurney made it 1-0 when a long-range effort from Billy Kounsoulas hit the top of the Pats net. Mikey Hand making his debut in the St. Pats goal had no chance of saving it. It wasn’t long before it was 1-1 when Kathlyn Timmons passed a great ball into Warith Oyeniyi who slotted the ball into the Nurney net.

We now had a game. St. Pats were attacking in numbers with Cormac Nolan getting on to the end of a lot of through balls, but Cormac was denied a number of times by the Nurney goalkeeper.

On the 20-minute mark St. Pats attacked down the right with a great run by Scott Lawler who crossed a brilliant ball to the oncoming Warith Oyeniyi. Warith headed home a very good goal.

Nurney were still in the game and attacked down the left with some good play but Callum Murphy, Grainne Thompson & Rose Fasakin defended very well to keep the score at 2-1. Some good play in the St. Pats midfield by Keelan Reynolds who passed a great ball into Cormac Nolan. Cormac finally got his well-deserved goal to make it 3-1 at half time.

The second half started and Danny Keegan was working extremely hard in the St. Pats defence making brilliant runs down the left. But it was Nurney who scored first with some great play from Lee Maher to make it 3-2.

St. Pats were playing some good football and were caught offside a number of times with some very close calls. Nurney were not finished and attacked in numbers but it was a crunching tackle by Callum Murphy in the St. Pats midfield that sprung St. Pats into life. A very good run down the left from Fionn Dowling who won a corner.

Fionn took an excellent corner and the oncoming Jamie Hyland slotted the ball into the Nurney net to make it 4-2. Nurney never gave up and it took some great defending from Rose Fasakin, Rian Bret & Yuri Emmanuel to keep Nurney at bay. Pats attacked again with Szymon working hard up front but Nurney were defending well.

With 15 mins left on the clock Nurney scored when Callum Kavanagh scored a great goal after a mix up in the Pats defence. The score was now 4-3 and Nurney were looking for the equalizer but it was Cormac Nolan who beat the offside to score another well-deserved goal to make it 5-3 to St.Pats at the end.

This was a very good win for this St. Pats team who have a great attitude. All of the Nurney team played well.

Best for St. Pats were Rose Fasakin who put in a player of the match performance, Scott Lawler, Danny Keegan, Warith Oyeniyi & Cormac Nolan.

Slaney Rovers AFC   1,  St Joseph’s AFC  1
Saturday 19 March 2022  Rathvilly behind graveyard (Slaney Rovers

Joey`s title aspirations hit the buffers, when needing a win to reduce the gap on leaders New Oak, they could only share the points in Rathvilly. The home side applied all the early pressure, resulting in Daragh Corcoran being fouled for a penalty which he calmly slotted home on 20 minutes, for a deserved half time lead.

It was end-to-end action in the second half, a Joey`s free kick looked goal bound, only to be denied by the cross bar while at the other end, Dylan Byrne got in behind the Joey`s defence, only to shoot just wide of the target. Joey`s did equalise with 6 minutes to go, when Rhys McCanny finished well from close range, to reward his team`s effort. Game ended all-square at 1-1.

It was certainly a team effort from Slaney, with Oisin Reardan, Joseph Gibbons and Dylan Byrne standing out.

BALTINGLASS TOWN: UNDER 12 LEAGUE DIVISION 2 CHAMPIONS

Under 13 League Division 2 2021/22

St Joseph’s AFC   0,  Baltinglass Town AFC  8
Saturday 19 March 2022  McArdle Cross Tinryland (St Josephs)

St Josephs welcomed Baltinglass Town to McArdles Cross on a bright and sunny March afternoon. In a sign of the times, the Joeys squad were reduced significantly and indeed, the match would have been in doubt if not for a number of the U12’s team stepping up to help fulfil the fixture.

A big thank you to Tadhg Dean, Niall Fennelly and Shay Ryan who answered the call. The opening 5 minutes were even with both teams figuring each other out and resulted in a number of chances at both ends of the pitch. The deadlock was broken on the 6-minute mark with a well worked move from the visitors. Balto were in the ascendency and managed to score another 3 unanswered goals before the break leaving the match at 0-4 to the visitors at half-time.

With such a depleted squad, many teams might have thrown in the towel but this was not the case. The Joeys team came out in the second half looking to reduce the deficit. Kiegan Lawlor was being supplied with good quality passes from the industrious and hardworking Joeys midfield resulting in a number of attacks on the Balto goal and indeed they were unlucky not to score. The Baltinglass team were moving well and probing both wings. But the McGrath brothers of Josh and Alex were making the Baltinglass wingers work hard for everything.

Baltinglass are not on top of the U13 Division 2 league for nothing and they created lots of chances and ultimately increased their tally by an additional 4 goals in the second half, bringing the final score to 0-8 to the visitors.

The match was played in a very sporting manner and with minimum intervention required by the referee. Both teams had different agendas, Joeys showed a solid determination and a steely competitive spirit with their never-say-die approach. Conversely, the Balto men were showing a determination and killer instinct as they continued to probe and create chances which have them at the top of this division.

Special mention goes to Harry Jackson, Sean Byrne and Rian Kennedy for the Baltinglass team. Jack McDonald, and the McGrath Brothers of Alex and Josh in the Joeys defence put in a heavy shift and made the visitors work hard for each opportunity. At the end of the match, the Joeys team very sportingly watched on as the Baltinglass team were awarded the U13 Division 2 Trophy. Joint captains of Sean Byrne and Marcus Whittle stepped up to receive the honour on behalf of their teammates.

The captains accepted the Trophy and conveyed their appreciation to the assembled crowd with some kind words of gratitude to their trainers, mentors and family for the support throughout what has been a difficult season all things considered. Congratulations to Baltinglass.

New Oak Boys AFC   0,  Ballymurphy Celtic  0
Saturday 19 March 2022  Burrin Rd Carlow (New Oak Boys)

On a beautiful morning in New Oak in ideal conditions, it was 1st vs 3rd, in what was a repeat of last week’s keenly contested reverse fixture. A good start by New Oak ended with an Oisin Rice chance but the Ballymurphy defence stood strong. Ballymurphy pressed themselves immediately which yielded a number of consecutive corners but it was the turn for New Oaks defence to stand strong. It was nip and tuck for the rest of the half with little goal-mouth action and it ended 0-0 at half time.

Ballymurphy started the second half well and a number of half chances ended with nothing. Like the first half, it was very difficult for any forward players to get a foothold on the gane as defences stood strong all afternoon. However, on 18 minutes, the chance of the game fell to Ballymurphys No 6 when he found himself in the middle of New Oaks box with defenders scrambling but he was unable to get sufficient time to control the ball and get a clean shot on goal but it did somehow get past an onrushing Nigel Coughlan in New Oaks goal only to come off the right hand post and roll across the goal mouth before New Oaks Conor Dooley and Kayden Dargan combined to clear the danger.

Both teams huffed and puffed for the last 10 minutes but both defences came out on top and the game ended 0-0, and a share of the spoils.

Best for New Oak on the day were Kayden Dargan, Kian Hutton and Keelan Brennan.

While Charlie Foley, James Dalton and Sean O’Brien impressed for Ballymurphy.

Saturday 19 March 2022  The Plots (Hanover Harps)

This match was played in a good competitive spirit on the Plots this morning. Slaney started the game brightly and midway through the first half won a penalty and it was coolly converted by Timmy Jackson. The half continued in the same fashion and Slaney went in at the break with a deserved lead.

The second half saw Harps kick into gear and Masfie Islam equalised with a good finish. The home side pushed but Slaney stood strong and almost held out for a deserved draw but Islam slotted in the winner in the dying moments to give Hanover a 2-1 win and the three points.

Best for Hanover were: Masfie Islam, Senan Sheehan, Rhys Sherry and Anthony Brennan.

Best for a spirited Slaney were: Gareth Doyle, Timmy Jackson and Robbie Bowes

Saturday 19 March 2022  St Patricks College via George bernard shaw

A polished performance from St Fiaccs saw them run out 3-1 winners in St Pats College on Saturday morning. The first half was dominated by St Fiaccs with the Nurney attackers not having any chances of note. It took until just before half time for St Fiaccs to break down the well marshalled Nurney defence when Leah Cummins Nelson and Ashlee Smith combined for Ashlee to open the scoring. Half time 1-0.

A more open second half saw Fiaccs and Ashlee Smith double their leads when Ali O Connor and Mia Branagan combined to great effect. Nurney created some chances after this with Sarah Murphy having her own personal battle with the stand-in Fiaccs goalkeeper Ella Matthews who produced some great saves to keep Nurney at bay. With 10 minutes left substitute Millie Ingram-Chatten was left alone on the edge of the box and placed her shot wide of the keeper to score. Nurney scored a consolation goal late on when Sarah Murphy eventually got the better of Ella

Matthews. Game ended 3-1 to St Fiaccs.

Best for St Fiaccs were Ella Matthews, Ali O Connor and the ever-reliable Hanna Kerfah

For Nurney Eve Kearney, Holly Murphy and Doireann O Toole stood out.

a great goal from Abbie Meaney. It was not long until Burrin came back into the game when Anna Cullen gave a great ball to Leah Fitzpatrick when the ball hit the side bar and came across the goal line and with a great save from Amy Farrell.

Burrin continued to be strong with a great run from Leah Mannion which saw her shoot for goal and again Amy Farrell had a great save.

New Oak came out on top in this very entertaining game played in ideal conditions at Burrin Rd this morning. Burrin raced into a two-goal lead with both goals coming from Emer Ryan in the 15th and 17th minute. Both teams had chances thereafter and right on the stroke of half time Bronagh Myers connected perfectly with a half volley from outside of the box which nestled in the bottom corner.
