U13 SFAI Cup 2021/2022

New Oak Boys AFC     0,  Freebooters  5
Saturday 9 October 2021  Burrin Rd Carlow (New Oak Boys)

New Oak Boys 0 Freebooters 5

New Oak Boys went out of the SFAI Cup on Saturday morning after meeting a very strong Freebooters outfit from Kilkenny.

The home side started slowly with the Kilkenny outfit showing more desire and determination to win balls and challenge their counterparts. This resulted with the away side taking a 3 goal lead into half time. With number 9 Chris Hayes’s beautiful strike from outside the box being the stand-out finish.

Nothing Cathal Kennnedy in goals could do about that, a really great finish! New Oak could consider themselves unlucky being 3 down though as they created some chances near the end of the half and were growing into the game.

Soon after the break the away side got another goal which gave them great confidence. They held very solid at the back and were comfortable winners thereafter.

Stand out performances from New Oak were Daniel Nolan and Siobhan Sinnot in defence, Darragh Casey tried his best in midfield throughout the game whilst Cormac Murphy was the focal point in attack.

 Freebooters were good all over with Jack Delaney grabbing 2 goals, Pauric Meaney hitting one, and Ceirin Murphy getting on the scoresheet also. Number 7 James Kovar deserves special mention as he was outstanding on the right side and unlucky not to get on the scoresheet with a superb volley.

St Patrick’s  Boys AFC   0,  Rosslare  5
Saturday 9 October 2021     The Meadows (Graiguecullen)

A really disappointing day at the Meadows for St Patrick Boys and supporters in the SFAI Cup. It took a while for a well combined Rosslare Rovers to break the 1-3-5-2 combination of the St. Pats side but persistence paid off despite sterling performances from St Pats side by Darragh McEvoy, Thomas Lawler, Fíonn McGrath, and Ryan Doody in defence. While the midfield found it tough, and despite the brave efforts from Summer and Joey Doorly Jamie and Brandon Dean, saw Rovers on many occasions break the midfield to penetrate our defence, hence a shortage of through balls up front for Jamie Cooney and Leon Doyle kept the Carlow side scoreless but it was an excellent Rosslare side who bagged 6 goals that went on to take the spoils.

Rosslare Rovers 6 St. Pats Boys 0.

Best wishes to Rosslare Rovers in the next round.

Scorers for Rosslare Rovers: Artem Kelly 2, Darragh Rogan 1, Lee Duggan 1, Oscar Fox 1 and Jake Ottrim 1.

Lions   5,     Bagenalstown AFC  0
Saturday 9 October 2021  

Tough morning for the Town in Durrow on Saturday morning. They came up against a well drilled Lions side.

It was the home side’s ability to create and convert their chances which proved decisive as they ran out comfortable 5-0 winners.

For a hard-working Town team Alfie Black in goal was outstanding

Villa       5,      Crettyard United          0

Saturday 9 October 2021

Crettyard started the better of the two teams, they began very brightly and nearly took the lead only for a great save by the Villa keeper. Villa then started to get a foothold in the game and took the lead with a brilliant strike into the top corner of the Crettyard net.

Crettyard continued to battle hard throughout but conceded a second goal just after the start of the second half. The Villa side grew in strength and confidence following their second goal and went on to score three more before the end.

It was a great performance from the Laois side and they were unlucky not to get a result from the game.

Best performers on the day for a disappointed Crettyard side were Aaron Brennan, Dan McGuire and Fionan Brennan.

Ballymurphy Celtic FC   2,  Vale Wanderers AFC  3
Saturday 9 October 2021     Ballymurphy

After a very sluggish start from Ballymurphy, Vale Wanderers flew into a two goal lead after 20 mins with two good finishes. The dependable Jack Foley pulled one back for Bally before the break as they started to get a foothold in the game. Half-time score 1-2 to Vale.

The second half was all Ballymurphy who attacked in waves forcing numerous corners and free kicks. The breakthrough finally came with 15 mins left when a Joey Dalton free was slid home by Sean Collier for the equalizer at 2-2. Bally should have been awarded a penalty soon after the goal but no decision was given. With 5 minutes to go a rare break from Vale left the Bally defence isolated and the Vale striker made no mistake with a cool finish. Bally had the chance to equalise in the last minute but Lachlann Smith’s header went over.

A great team performance from Vale.

Best for Bally were Darragh Coleman, Joey Dalton and James Lawlor

Under 16 League 2021/22

Killeshin FC   2,        Burrin Celtic AFC  1
Saturday 9 October 2021  Quakers Field, Killeshin

Killeshin welcomed Burrin Celtic with both level on points after their first 3 games. Burrin had the first shot on target after 5 minutes, but Ben Fitzgerald was well positioned to deny them an early goal. Killeshin got into their rhythm and Evan Askins flashed a shot across the visitor’s goal on 7 minutes. On 13 minutes some good play down the left between Danny Malone and Michael Dooley resulted in a Dooley cross to Killian McCutcheon but his effort was blocked on the six-yard line.

Celtic had a spell of pressure for 10 minutes but each phase was dealt with by the back four of Callum Hayden, Tristan Owens, Jack Brennan and Ben Brady. Killeshin got back on top with Paddy Fitzgerald going close on 23 minutes. This was followed in the 27th minute by a deft Jack Brennan ball to release Zach Owens to cross which was excellently cut out by the Burrin keeper.

A minute later the Burrin keeper saved again with his outstretched leg from a Michael Dooley shot which was destined for the net. On 30 minutes Dooley crossed for Zach Owens but his headed effort just shaved the wrong side of the post. On 34 minutes Celtic took the lead from a wonderfully struck David McHugh free kick all of 35 yards out, super strike. 

Killeshin almost equalised in the 37th minute when Michael Dooley got through but was denied by the Burrin keeper, the rebound fell to Paddy Fitzgerald, but the finish just curled wide.

Killeshin came out flying in the second half and within a minute Zach Owens got to the end-line and crossed to Michael Dooley whose shot was blocked again by the in-form net minder from Burrin.

Killian McCutcheon was running the show in midfield and on 44 minutes played in Dooley whose shot was saved. Then on 49 minutes Paddy Fitzgerald took a quick throw to Dooley down the right and his cross to the back post was met by Riogan Doran to equalize for Killeshin.

The home side upped the tempo and kept pressing for another goal and on 66 minutes Luke Keogh linked well with Michael Dooley down the left, Dooley played a super ball to Eoin Pender, but his shot just cleared the bar. Pender won a free kick in the 67th minute and a Jack Brennan delivery was met by Paddy Fitzgerald at the back post, but his effort found the side netting.

Burrin had a rare break in the 68th minute but Shane McGuire cut out the danger and launched a counter attack which led to a Killeshin corner.

Evan Askins expertly dispatched the set piece and Jack Brennan rose highest to score with a bullet header for the vital goal and a 2-1 lead. Burrin then had a quick opportunity to equalize in the 71st minute but Ben Fitzgerald in the Killeshin goal kept them at bay.

Killeshin worked hard to keep the lead with Eoin Pender, Josh Hynes, Paddy Fitzgerald and Evan Askins snuffing out any Burrin attacks through midfield. 

Killeshin deserved their 2-1 win today with a great squad performance and tireless work from all.

Best for Burrin were Dylan Cunningham in the goal, Dylan Ruane, Danny Gibson and David McHugh.

St Joseph’s AFC   0,  St Patrick’s Boys AFC  1
Saturday 9 October 2021  McArdle Cross Tinryland (St Josephs)

It was a great game of soccer this morning, St Pats starting the better and took a deserved lead midway through the first half. It took until the second half before St Joseph’s really came into the game. The game flowed from end to end. Nobody could find the back of the net in the second half and St pats held on for t he 1-0win.

Under 15 League Division 1 2021/22

Ballymurphy Celtic FC   1,  St Anne’s AFC  3
Saturday 9 October 2021  Ballymurphy

A well-deserved three points for Anne’s on the road today after a fighting Ballymurphy performance fell short. Anne’s flew into a two-goal lead on 12 and 17 mins through Brian Byrne and Seamus Lynch before Jack Joyce pulled one back before the break to leave the scoreline 1-2 in favour of St Annes.
Ballymurphy tried hard to equalise throughout the second half and brought two good saves from the Anne’s keeper before they were caught on the break on 77 mins for the clincher for the Saints when Jack Julian raced through to wrap up all three points.

Best for Bally were Jack Joyce, Ciaran O’Nneill and Jack Redmond

For Anne’s Cillian Langton, Brian Byrne and Jack Julian were best.

Under 15 League Division 2 2021/22

Parkville United AFC   3,  Vale Wanderers AFC  6
Saturday 9 October 2021  Hawkins Lane Tullow (Parkville United)

It didn’t take long for the goals to start in this game. Unfortunately for Parkville, is was an OG that started the ball rolling in the wrong direction when Jack Byrne headed into his own net at the near post on 3 mins from a Vale corner.

Parkville recomposed themselves and drew level on 12 mins when Dean Keogh brilliantly converted a freekick from 30 yards out. Vale took the lead again off a long ball from the keeper putting Aidan Nolan in for his first of four on the day on 17 minutes when his speed broke the Parkville defense not for the first time and he calmly slotted home. Aidan doubled his tally on 19 minutes when he brilliantly converted a freekick from close range around the Parkville wall into the bottom corner.

The keepers long kick-outs would continue to haunt the Parkville defence for the remainder of the first half with Vale scoring a total of 6 goals in the first 35 mins with Aidan Nolan bagging 2 more and Shane Daly getting his goal on the stroke of half time.

With the damage most certainly done in the first half, Parkville came out in the second half with a new game plan and nothing to lose. The game started to take a turn in the home team’s favour, when Parkville’s Marcus Regelis scored his first of 2 penalties of the day when he was brought down by the centre-back for Vale in their own box on 55 minutes.

Adam Cleary won a second penalty when he was brought down by the keeper on 63 minutes with Parkville now gaining momentum and success when attaching down the wing.

Marcus Regelis scoring his second of the day brought Parkville back to within 3 goals of the leaders at 3-6. But unfortunately for Parkville is was too little too late as Vale held steady to see out the game. Really a game of two halves but Vale were too sharp on the day for the home team.

Best for Vale Wanderers were Mark Stanley, Adam Doyle and David Kennedy.

Best for Parkville were Dean Keogh, Luke O’Brien and Adam Cleary.

St Patricks Boys AFC   4,  Nurney Villa  AFC  2
Saturday 9 October 2021   The Meadows (Graiguecullen)

Nurney took an early lead through Thomas Sheeran but Pats replied swiftly through two composed finishes from Mark Buggy the second of which stood out as he calmly took the ball down on his chest and slotted it past the keeper. Towards the end of the half Nurney were awarded a penalty and Zach O’Hara hit his penalty high down the middle to level the score at the break.

Despite some early pressure at the start of the second half from Nurney it was Pats who finished the game the stronger with 2 goals inside the last 15 mins firstly through a free kick by Fillip Nykiel from an acute angle. Then the win was sealed by Keelan Reynolds with a shot from 25 yards.

Goalscorers for St Patrick’s Boys: Keelan Reynold, Mark buggy & Fillip Nykiel.

Best players for St Patrick’sBoys: Yuri Emanuael  and Fionn Dowling.

St Joseph’s AFC   7,  Slaney Rovers AFC  2
Saturday 9 October 2021  McArdle Cross Tinryland (St Josephs)

It was a quick start to the game with Slaney Rovers opening up the scoring on the 4th min when Conor Doody slipped the ball past the Joeys goalie. But Joeys didn’t let their heads drop and within 2 mins they were level when a goal from Rhys McCanny made it 1-1.

Within 3 mins of Joeys scoring their first goal, they added another and again it was scored by the prolific Rhys McCanny, which was assisted by Ben Taylor. Not letting up Joeys then scored their 3rd goal resulting from a free from the halfway line by Jack Keating which sailed over the goalie’s head to end up in the back of the net.

Just before half time Joeys got their 4th goal scored by Lorcan Kelly. Following some super play by both teams in the first half the scoreline at half time was 4-1 to Joeys.

Both teams went at it right from the start of the second half with some chances for both sides but it was Joeys who eventually gained the upper hand with a goal from Kevin McGinn assisted by Lorcan Kelly. With the game now firmly in their grasp Joeys lost no time in adding more goals to their haul. Slaney did manage to score a second goal scored by Jack Brennan but by then Joeys had the game sown up and they ran out easy winners.

Joseph’s scorers: Rhys McCanny, Jack Keating, Lorcan Kelly, Kevin McGinn & Corey Ryan.

Slaney Rovers scorers: Conor Doody & Jack Brennan.

Joeys was a great team effort, everyone played their hearts out. Never gave up…

Best for Slaney Rovers were Oisin Reardon & Lee Fannon.

New Oak Boys AFC   0,  Hanover Harps AFC  8
Saturday 9 October 2021        Burrin Rd Carlow (New Oak Boys

A great start to the game with both teams having plenty of ball, in minute 7 Tj Brennan scored the first goal for Hanover Harps this was quickly followed by 2 more goals by minute 14. At this point Hanover Harps were well in their stride but New Oak fought back and showed some great play until the 24th minute mark when Hanover Harps scored once again.

The second half of the match saw Hanover’s Arda Destire scoring a goal 5 minutes in for them and the writing was on the wall for the New Oak Boys team, Hanover proceeded on their merry scoring way and ran out very easy winners in the end although the New Oak lads kept their spirits up and showed some great team work right up to the final whistle.

Among the goal-scorers for a rampant New Oak team were TJ Brennan, Arda Destire, Gael O’Rock, Calum Dolan and Leon Fitzgerald.

Goalkeeper for New Oak on the day Sean Og Farrell put in a great effort and made some brilliant saves.

St Patrick’s Boys AFC  6,  Vale Wanderers AFC  2
Saturday 9 October 2021        The Meadows (Graiguecullen)

A cracking game in The Meadows. This was a very hard fought game between two very good sides. The game’s first goal came in the 10th minute from Calum O’Brien-Murphy when he pounced on a mistake between the centre-back and goalie. Vale then fashioned a goal-scoring chance from a good counter attack a few minutes later to score the equaliser.

Pat’s however then took the lead again through Jayden Lee-Murphy when he took a snap shot from the edge of the box. Pats then went on to make it 3-1 from an absolutely cracking finish from Mollie Cowman who fired past the ‘keeper from the corner of the 18-yard box. Vale were persistent however and finally got their reward when they scored their second from a defensive mistake in the Pat’s backline.

Cowman then went on to score her second from the same spot as the first to make it 4-2 at the break to St Pats

In the second half Pat’s were the dominant team and sealed the game with 10 minutes to go from a Mark Buggy penalty, and his team-mate Eanna Dunican 5 minutes later  finished the game off with a well taken sixth Pats goal 5 minutes later. Full-time score was 6-2 to St Pats.

Best for Pat’s were Jayden Lee-Murphy, Mollie Cowman and Fionn Daly.

An all-round great team performance from Vale.

Ballon came out a lot better in the second half, with the back line playing very well and solid together. Hanover got their 6th of the day in the second half, but the score line isn’t really a reflection on the way Burrin played.

Burrin Celtic AFC        3,        Vale Wanderers AFC        6

Saturday 9 October 2021           The Valley (Burrin Celtic)

Report by Bob Howson.

First – Half.

This local derby between local rivals kicked off on a cloudy afternoon, with just a slight breeze, in what were nigh on perfect conditions for a game of football.

Burrin started the brighter, with Margaret Byrne putting in a good cross to Aimee Bolger, but a good catch and subsequent clearance, by Amy Farrell relieved the pressure on Vale.

A good run by Kate Burke, where she beat a couple of Burrin defenders but her final cross went out for a goalkick and then down the other end where Leah Mannion made a good run, but was eventually crowded out, by the Burrin defence.

Vale were defending well, as they started to get into the game and a long ball went into Abbey Meaney, but Amy Farrell was off her goal line very quickly, to claim the ball and clear her lines.

Ellie Byrne was a lynch-pin, in the heart of Burrin’s defence and she put in a terrific header, to clear her lines and thwart the Vale attackers.

Vale were putting a lot of pressure on Burrin’s defence and Burrin needed to be on their toes to prevent them scoring.

A great solo run by Leah Fitzpatrick on 23 minutes, took her past three Vale defenders and she fired in a shot into the bottom corner of the net past Amy Farrell in Vale’s net, but she had no chance of saving it and it was 1-0 to Burrin, which reflected the way the play had gone.

Almost immediately, Alice Collins, who had been introduced as a substitute,, picked up the ball 25 yards out and fired it over Eva Haskens – Burrin;s keeper and dropped into the net for the equaliser at 1-1, on 24 minutes.

Burrin’s Leah Mannion went on another strong run, but she shot well wide and both Molly Maher and Ellie Byrne were proving to be the ‘the rock upon which Vale’s attacks foundered’.

It was ‘end to end stuff’ in this absorbing game and as half-time came close, Vale’s Sarah Divine picked up a loose and shot into the roof of the net on 33 minutes to make it 1 – 2 and Vale took their slender lead into the interval.

Second – Half.

It was a quick start by Burrin and Leah Mannion went on another mazy run , where she went past three Vale defenders and shot from 25 yards, but her shot hit the foot of the post and rebounded tp safety.

On ten minutes, a long cross, from out wide right found Kate Burke who shot left footed and beat Eva Haskins easily, to make the score 1 – 3.

Alice Collins picked up a loose ball and shot from the edge of the area and the ball nestled in the bottom of the net which on twelve minutes and 1-4 goals to the good.

Burrin were working hard in an effort to reduce the deficit, but strong defending by Vale was keeping them out, however, another solo attack by Burrin’s – Leah Mannion, who drove into Vale’s area and shot home into the net, with her left foot, to make the score 2-4, on 14 minutes.

A freekick to Vale was taken by Moya O’Toole and she found Roisin Collins free and she fired home from ten yards to make the score 2 – 5 on seventeen minutes.

One of many great runs by Burrin’s Grace Walker, saw her beat three opponents, but her shot was easily saved by Amy Farrell and then on twenty seven minutes Vale’s Sarah Devine put in a good run and she fired home to make the score 2 – 6 on twenty seven minutes.

Burrin weren’t done and Leah Fitzpatrick picked up a loose ball and shot into the bottom corner of the net from fifteen yards to make the score 3 – 6, on twenty nine minutes.

As the final whistle approached, Burrin’s Grace Walker made one more great run, beating two Vale defenders, but she was halted by a third defender and dispossessed and the ball was cleared.

Just after this, Referee – Keeva Collins, who had a fine match, letting the play flow as much as possible, blew for full time and the final score was 3 – 6 to Vale.

Standing out for Vale were Alice Collins, with a fine brace, Kate Burke, Sarah Devine, who also nabbed a brace and Amy Farrell, whilst best for Burrin were Molly Maher, Elli Byrne, Leah Mannion and Leah Fitzpatrick.

It was an absolute pleasure to see this game, with very few fouls and no back chatting to the Referee – these Girls showed just how the game of Football should be played – all teams in the League, should follow their example
