New Oak Boys v Hanover Harps
11/11 11:00
New Oak Boys 1 - 0 Hanover Harps

New Oak Boys 1

Hanover Harps 0

New Oak advanced to the open draw of the FAI Junior Cup after this narrow but deserved win over local rivals Harps.

In a tight first half there was little created in front of either goal, Harps keeper Kevin Power making one save of note from Jordan Harmon while New Oak’s Keelan Gaffney easily dealt with a Ben Dorgan effort just before the break.

The second burst into life almost immediately as New Oak’s Daryl Coleman saw red for a needless push on Mark Davis on 47 minutes. New Oak made light of their numerical disadvantage and hit the front five minutes later. Jordan Harmon’s perfectly flighted corner finding the head of Greg Sykula who powered home from six yards with the Harps defence marked absent. Hanover tried to press on but posed little threat to Gaffney’s goal and the Boys really should have had a second goal when Sykula latched onto a poor back pass but Kevin Power raced out of his goal and managed to steer the shot out for a corner on the 70-minute mark. As the game entered added time Hanover finally created a chance of note, Stephen Chalton got in behind the New Oak backline but a strong hand from Gaffney and the butt of the post saw Chalton’s effort go for a corner. Niall Swan headed over the resulting set piece and gone was Hanover’s last chance of forcing extra time.

Best for the winners included Conor Byrne, Cathal Gaffney, David O’Shea and Lee Murphy. Harps had notable showings from Ben Dorgan and substitutes Cathal Coughlan and Dylan Walsh.

Ballymurphy Celtic v Newpark AFC

Ballymurphy Celtic 0 - 1 Newpark AFC

Ballymurphy Celtic 0

Newpark FC 1

Horrendous conditions and slippery underfoot would do neither team any favours in Ballymurphy on Sunday.

It was no surprise considering the conditions that little chances would be created in the opening half hour. On 35 minutes a Newpark corner swung in by Rachael Wall would fall to the feet of Tina Wright who in turn would fire home from close range.

The second half would see Bally push hard for an equaliser but a combination of missed chances and some fine saves from Jayne Larkin Flynn in the Newpark goal would see them hold on for a hard fought three points.

Impressive for the winners were Mags Hogan, Lynne Beirne and Jayne Larkin Flynn while Katie Drennan, Catriona Scully and Aoibheann Murphy tried hard for Bally

Hanover Harps B v Vale Wanderers B
Div One 11/11 14:00
Hanover Harps B 6 - 1 Vale Wanderers B

Hanover Harps 6

Vale Wanderers 1

This was arguably Vale’s worst performance of the season as a five-goal victory returned Hanover to the top of the table.

Hanover flew out of the blocks and Dillon Murphy played in Shane Noonan who despatched his shot to the top corner after five minutes. The game settled down with both sides trying to play football in the conditions with half chances at both ends. On 20 minutes, Murphy slipped in Mikey Kavanagh and he shot to put Hanover two up.

Hanover began the second half as they started the first and on 54 minutes, Aaron Wynne squared for Dillon Murphy to add a third and kill any hope of a Vale comeback. A minute later, Shane Noonan repaid Murphy’s assist from the first half when playing him through. Murphy rounded two defenders and shot low to the keeper’s right. On 63 minutes, Murphy set up Aaron Wynne for Hanover’s fifth and ten minutes later Murphy completed his hat trick from the spot. Vale never gave up and got a late consolation with five minutes remaining through Niall Townsend after a great ball from Lorcan Galvin. A good all-round team performance from Hanover with everyone putting in a huge performance and an outstanding hat-trick display by Murphy.

Players of note for Vale on the day were Lorcan Galvin, Billy Lennon-O’Brien and Kieran Collins.
