Crettyard United B v Hanover Harps B
Murphy seals Crettyard victory
Herald Striker Division 24/09 11:00
Crettyard United B 4 - 1 Hanover Harps B

Two goals from striker Cormac Murphy saw off Hannover harps on Sunday morning in Crettyard. A dominant start from Crettyard saw them 2-0 up after 30 minutes thanks to a superb individual goal from Willie Kavanagh and a great team goal after a great piece of play from Evan O’Carroll saw Murphy finish well. Crettyard we’re creating a lot of chances but could not seem to get the ball in the net. The second half saw a comeback from Hannover who scored early in the half but this was put to bed after a Hannover player appeared to strike a Crettyard man and was sent off. Murphy took full advantage and scored another after another great pass from Willie Kavanagh. Some superb skill from substitute Killian O’Shea brought a great cheer from the crowd late in the second half before Evan O’Carroll lashed home a volley from 20 yards to seal the win. A great team effort from Crettyard but Evan O’Carroll, Cormac Murphy and Killian O’Shea stood out.

Burrin Celtic v Celtic Stars

Burrin Celtic 0 - 6 Celtic Stars

Burrin Celtic 0

Celtic Stars 6

Celtic Stars are the Senior Division Two champions after a big victory against a depleted Burrin Celtic side in The Valley.

The home side only had eight players on the field during kick-off and Celtic Stars opened them up a few times early on. Senan Finucan crossed the ball to Gareth Cullen but he headed wide. On seven minutes, Stars were in again as Dale Austin played the ball through to PJ O’Keeffe but he couldn’t steer his shot on target.

Burrin eventually conceded after 21 minutes when Finucan found O’Keeffe with a pass and he made no mistake this time around. It was 2-0 to the Stars after 27 minutes when O’Keefe was on hand to poke in the ball after a goalmouth scramble. O’Keefe turned provider for the third goal as he crossed it in to Martin Byrne who shot it in with five minutes to go to make the score 3-0 at the break.

Stars got their fourth goal seven minutes after the restart when Finucan got to the end line and cut it back to Byrne as he headed in his second goal of the game. O’Keeffe and Francis Byrne combined before Byrne slotted home with ten minutes to go. Stars got their final goal of the game with five minutes to go when O’Keefe’s corner went to Mark Collins and he drove it in from the edge of the box.

Best players for the winners were Martin Byrne, PJ O’Keeffe and Eoin Devlin while all the players played well for Burrin Celtic.

Baltinglass Town 3 - 1 Castle Rangers

Baltinglass Town 3

Castle Rangers 1

Baltinglass Town are through to the semi-finals after beating Castle Rangers in a tight contest in Parkmore.

The home side hadn’t won a game in the league but they were up for this game and they nearly took the lead when Declan Jones fired in a powerful shot which struck off the crossbar. Jones did get the first goal for Balto as his shot deflected off a Castle Rangers defender and into the net. Baltinglass kept the visitors at bay until the break as they went in 1-0 ahead.

There looked to be a shock on the cards as Baltinglass pushed on for their second and they got it when Jones beat two defenders and finished into the bottom corner for his second of the game. Castle Rangers got back into it with a goal but Baltinglass made it 3-1 when Declan Faulkner finished off from a narrow angle as they clinched the game.

Best for the victors were Noel Phelan, Alan Roberts and Paddy Sinnott.

16/09 14:30
St Joseph's FC Blue 0 - 10 St Patricks Boys

St. Joseph’s Blue 0

St. Patrick’s Boys 10

St. Patrick’s Boys were too strong for St. Joseph’s as they had the perfect start to their Youths division campaign in McArdle’s Cross, Tinryland.

In what were difficult conditions as it rained throughout the game, it took 12 minutes for the Graiguecullen side to take the lead as Cian Cleary made it 1-0. St. Pat’s got into their stride as the game went on and it was 2-0 when Levan De Silva headed home. It was 3-0 after 40 minutes as another good team move was finished off by Cleary for his second of the game and that was how it stayed until the break.

St. Pat’s were stronger physically and this strength was telling in the second half. They got two quick goals after the restart from Lord Afrifa and Andrew Lewis to make it 5-0. With the score line looking more comfortable, St Pats ran in more subs and Diarmuid Ruth came off the bench to get himself a hat-trick with goals on 60, 65 and 80 minutes. With the game winding down, St. Pats made the score line more comfortable as Afrifa added two more goals on the 85 and 87 minutes to put them into double figures.

Ten minutes into the second half John Townsend completed his hat trick from a 25-yard free kick. To their credit Joeys refused to fold and gave as good as they got for the remainder of the tie but Nurney were comfortable winners.

Wolfhill Athletic v Vale Wanderers B
Division Three 17/09 14:00
Wolfhill Athletic 4 - 6 Vale Wanderers B

Wolfhill Athletic 4

Vale Wanderers 6

An outstanding second quarter in which they ran in five goals saw Vale collect the points in the Swan.

The home side took an early lead when Phillip Brennan sent a great shot to the Vale net after a clearance from a corner fell to him on the edge of the box. Vale however recovered well from this set back and proceeded to boss the game before half time and were rewarded with five goals to lead 1-5 at the break.

Wolfhill staged a rally in the third quarter and goals from a well struck free kick by Billy Campion and a brace from Mark George reduced the score line to the minimum but the home side then conceded a soft goal and with it their chances of getting something from the tie. Best for Wolfhill were Adam Nicol-Waugh, Aidan Rowan Billy Campion and Phillip Brennan.

Burrin Celtic 3

Burrin recovered from last week’s trouncing to notch victory at home on Sunday.

Micky Barcoe gave them an early lead availing of hesitation in the United defence after a Keith Deveraux free kick after 12 minutes.

Micky Barcoe soon had Burrin ahead again with his second goal of the game. Keith Deveraux doubled the Burrin lead after good play from Liam McGuill. Try as they did there was no way back for Parkville as Celtic went on to victory.
