UNDER 17 ONE A

Tramore Athletic 1 Passage 1

Well done to the Under 17s of Passage. The week before last, they won the league cup with a thrilling victory over highly fancied Maymount Celtic and, at the weekend, scored a 1-1 draw with Tramore Athletic, the point enough to give the harboursiders the title in AUL Division One A.

Tramore will rue the many chances they had to seal this game and their mentors must be very disappointed with the amount of opportunities that went a-begging.

A few days earlier, Passage failed to secure the double when held to a scoreless draw by Dunbar Celtic in their top of the table clash. 

Keeper Daniel O’Leary, hero of the cup win over Maymount with his two penalty saves, suffered a serious finger injury against Dunbar, but was able to play in the Tramore game, with the aid of a special dressing.

It was a match that home side Tramore just had to win if they were to take the title. A draw or a win would be enough for Passage.

Tramore went ahead through Ken Murphy in the 75th minute but Passage centre forward Simon McGarry spoilt the home party when he took his goal in style as he drilled the ball beyond the Tramore goalkeeper in the 81st minute. 

Not too many chances were created in the first half. The second half was different and it was in this period that Tramore had so many opportunities but failed to put them away.

Passage were certainly the busier of the two defences and in the 21st minute defender David Hayes came to his side’s rescue when he blocked what looked like a goal bound shot from close range by Paul Kerrigan.

Passage endured some more pressure from Tramore and, just before half time, Kerrigan blasted over after receiving a decent ball from Jonathan Cahill.

Tramore should have went ahead in the 51st minute when Gearoid O’Shea was presented with a good ball over the top by Stephen O’Herlihy but, with only the keeper to beat, he failed to make proper contact and the chance was wasted.

Passage goalkeeper O’Leary palmed the ball away from a corner but only in the direction of waiting Tramore player Paul Kerrigan but Kerrigan could not direct his header into the net and the ball was pushed away for the second time by the Passage goalkeeper.

Kerrigan was involved again soon afterwards and his thunderous drive from 35 yards out was saved by the keeper.

Tramore kept the pressure up and, in the 69th minute, the Passage goalkeeper brought off a fine reflex save from a headed effort by Graham Cummins that looked destined for the back of the net.

It was only a matter of time before Tramore scored and that they did in the 75th minute. Graham Cummins headed a neat ball into the path of the Ken Murphy and, from inside the box, Murphy slotted the ball beyond the O’Leary to put his side deservedly in front

After good combination work between Paul Kerrigan and Graham Cummins, Tramore’s Cummins saw his effort from an acute angle come off the butt of the upright in the 80th minute.

Tramore continued to press forward but it was Passage who scored the all-important equalising goal in the 86th minute. It came after a long clearance. Simon McGarry, who has figured with the Premier side this season, got to the ball first and drilled his shot into the back of the net.

Tramore tried and tried but could not get the winner and Passage held on to become the Under 17 1A Champions for season 03-04.

Tramore Athletic: Roy Heaphy, Darren Cooke (captain), Stephen O’Herlihy, Shane Finn, Jason Meehan, Gearoid O’Shea, Ken Murphy, Graham Cummins, Paul Kerrigan, Jonathan Cahill and Ciaran Weldon. Subs: Ciaran McGrath for Ciaran Weldon.

Mayfield wore green/black
 CITY CHALLENGE CUP SEMI-FINAL

Mayfield United 0 Glen Celtic 0
(Mayfield won 3-0 on penalties, after extra time).

Glen Celtic, who pipped Churchview Celtic on penalties in their Murphy’s Stout City Challenge Cup quarter-final, had a disastrous shootout in Mayfield in the semi-final and failed to find the net from four attempts.

Mayfield missed their opener but were let off the hook and successful shots by Adrian Saville, Alan Kelly and Sean Madden, gave them a 3-0 decision and a place in the final against neighbours Ballyvolane B.

Mayfield’s immaculate number one pitch, not to mention the spectators, deserved a better encounter than this goal-less game. The local derby started well enough and there was a reasonable first half but it went downhill after that and penalties were on the cards long before referee Freddie Murray sounded the final whistle.

While second division Glen recovered to give as good as they got, first division Mayfield did have the better of the opening quarter. Ian Saville went close with a side-footed volley and then Sean Madden’s header from an indirect free in the box by Dave Kenny wasn't too far off.

Glen had a tremendous chance in the 36th  minute when Tony Kavanagh, with the aid of a pass from Danny Kiely, got into the box but, with a good view of the target, blasted wide of the near post. 

Mayfield responded two minutes later. A free was half cleared and Mick Brosnan knocked it back to Adrian Saville and his flying curling shot was very close to the angle of bar and post.

Chances were rare in the second half, most of them to Mayfield. In the 2nd minute, the influential Kenny crossed and Simon O'Leary let fly but keeper Ken Kiely made a fine stop. And Kiely came to the rescue again in the 64th minute, saving well from sub Noel O'Brien. O'Leary soon had another chance but kicked over the top.

Mayfield’s best chance came in the 72nd minute. The unmarked Niall O'Sullivan closed in on a free from the left but headed over the bar from about eight yards. There was a tremendous effort from Glen midfielder Danny Kiely just two minutes later but his long range drive from the right wing flew just over the bar.

Glen almost stole it with four minutes to go. Then Tony Kavanagh’s strong run saw him get away from two defenders but his flicked shot was saved by keeper Brian Ramsell. 

O’Brien, thanks to a return pass from Madden, got into the Glen box in the opening minute of extra time. He got the ball past keeper Kiely but Patrick O'Leary was on hand to boot clear.

That was about the only noteworthy incident of extra time and Glen, after that shootout win over Churchview, must have fancied their chances in the penalties but this time it was the Mayfield numbers that came up. The Mayfield full back, Ger Forde, wasn't involved in the shootout but did enough over the 110 minutes to merit the nod for man of the match.

Mayfield United: Brian Ramsell, Tim Twomey, Ger Forde, John warren, Mick Brosnan, Niall O'Sullivan, Adrian Saville, Sean madden, Simon O'Leary, Dave Kenny and Ian Saville. Subs: Alan Long, Alan Kelly, Noel O’Brien and Tom Brown.
Glen Celtic: Ken Kiely, Billy Long, Patrick O'Leary, Ross Harris, John Murphy, Patrick Long, Danny Kiely, Michael Shaw, Tony Kavanagh, Brendan Long and Colm Forde. Subs:  Tony Daly, Shane Hurley and Ian Murphy.
Referee: Freddie Murray.

In the other semi-final, second division Ballyvolane B defeated Glenthorn on penalties after another scoreless draw. Glenthorn, with Davy Ellis and Kieran Evans impressing, played well enough and were unlucky not to score through Darren Kennefick (first half) and Alan Falvey (second).






PRESIDENT'S CUP FINAL AT THE CROSS TONIGHT IS CANCELLED

Forewarned is forearmed. That’s the message from Ger Long, the player-manager at Greenmount Rangers, referring as much to his own experience of playing the Mitchelstown men as to the ringing warning from Park’s manager Davy O’Connor when the draw was announced.

“Obviously we’re looking forward to a return to the Cross but very wary of Park Utd who have as good a record as any other team in matches against Greenmount. Park beat us a few times in recent years and we know we have to play to our full potential to make the final.”

“I am delighted with our recent league form and 20 points from a possible 24 is a great achievement. Avoiding relegation was very important so now we can concentrate on keeping the run going in cup football. We will miss Eddie Cotter, operated on for a broken nose on Thursday. Eddie has been a rock in midfield and we wish him a speedy return.”

“Also doubtful with a hamstring injury is skilful midfielder Stephen Heaphy who has missed the last two games while the excellent Fionan Murray is unlikely to be available through injury and other commitments. I limped off myself against Togher with a calf muscle strain but hope to overcome that”

Greenmount panel: Eamonn Breen, Bertie Lane, Pat Tynan, Damien O'Neill, Sean Walsh, Ger Long, Shane McSweeney, Chris Irwin, Brendan Cronin, Darren Gubbins, Stephen McCarthy, Donal O'Shea, Gearoid O'Leary, Mick O'Leary, Conor Fitzgerald, Dave Cooke, Stephen Heaphy, Robert O'Mahony. Manager Ger Long, Assistants Sean Walsh and Anthony O'Neill. 


NEUTRAL VIEW
We went to Kinsale’s Donal Foran for a neutral viewpoint and found him already looking forward to a big two final: “Blarney v Greenmount would have to be one of the best finals in recent years and I would look forward to such a game. I fancy Blarney to come through against Ballincollig as they have recently hit a good patch of form with a well organised side. I don't know much about Ballincollig but it will take a very good side to beat Blarney. “

“I feel Greenmount must be the favourites against Park.  Rangers have got some great results in the Premier recently. I always felt they were in a false position in the league while placed on the bottom for so long.” 

Greenmount’s Ger Long: “In the other semi-final, Blarney are wily campaigners and will take nothing for granted as the trophy is known for turning up surprises. On the other hand, Martin will be telling his Ballincollig underdogs to go out and enjoy themselves and hopefully take what chances come their way. But it has to be Blarney, maybe 3-1.”

Ballincollig’s Colm Hogan: “We think Greenmount Rangers will win the other game as they have been playing very well recently. “

* Tomorrow is also a big day for third division sides, Inter City and Buttevant. They clash in St Mary’s Park and the winners of the play-off will be the champions in 3A. Buttevant won both their league clashes and will be the slightest of favourites but it could well go to penalties.

Greenmount won 4-2 and qualified to meet Blarney in the final

Ballincollig

Blarney winners


No report on this AOH semi-final... just the preview.


Ballincollig V Blarney United, Turner’s Cross Sunday 11.00am.

Colm Hogan, the Ballincollig PRO, knows he can get long odds on their first division team beating Blarney United in the first of the Murphy’s Stout AOH cup semi-finals at Turner’s Cross tomorrow. “They may be a Premier team but we’re not worried - the underdog has often come out on top at the end of the day. Ballincollig have had a lot of joy on their travels this season and to date have only lost one game away from home – on the opening day of the season in Macroom. So we are looking forward to going to Turner’s Cross.”

“It will be a first for many of the players to play down the Cross but the experiences of Anthony Hogan, Terry Coomey and John Kelleher and the guidance of long serving manager, Martin O'Neill, should help them rise to the occasion. We hope veteran Anthony Hogan leads his team to victory on this occasion and put one over on his twin brother, Finbarr, the Blarney United manager.”

The Ballincollig panel: Anthony Hogan [captain], Eoin Walsh, Matthew O'Regan, Trevor O'Mahony, Adrian Brady, Terry Donovan, Jason O'Leary, John Kelleher, Terry Coomey, Colin Weste, Dave Kenny, Richard O'Brien, John McAlpine, Barry O’Driscoll, Pat Flanagan, Thomas Galvin, Declan Flanagan, Conor Prenderville, Dave Sweeney and Michael Galvin. Manager: Martin O'Neill. Assistant: Anthony Hogan. Kit Man: Noel Hurley. Leading Goal Scorer: Dave Kenny – 31 Goals (league and cup).

The Blarney panel is fairly settled this season and is captained by the talented Raymond O'Leary. Finbarr’s assistant on the sideline is Connie O’Riordan who had given Blarney such sterling service over the years.

Blarney keeper Paul Collins, a member of the side the won the coveted trophy in 2000, reports that they have one or two injury problems but “all should come through okay for tomorrow.”

Surprisingly Paul says that just four of the panel were involved four years back: “It's the first AOH semi for the majority of our young squad, and there is a lot of excitement around for the first timers and experienced guys alike.”

“We haven't played Ballincollig this season but they seem to have good cup runs behind them, so it should be a tough game for us. You don't get any easy games in the semis and this will be no different. We had a good run so far in this year’s AOH and hopefully we can keep it going tomorrow.”

Blarney won and went on to defeat Greenmount Rangers in the final.
