Nostalgia Match of the Day Hillington v Glenvale

CITY CHALLENGE CUP               Feb 2006

Hillington 1 Glenvale 3

Glenvale, on the slide for the past few seasons, could well be on the way back. They followed up the previous week’s relegation battle win over Greenmount by scoring an impressive 3-1 away victory over in-form Hillington in the opening round of the Murphy’s Stout City Challenge Cup.

The home side started brightly and took an early lead. But the visitors fought back and scored two cracking goals to lead 2-1 at the break. They missed a couple just afterwards and then found themselves under increasing pressure before Jason Murphy put away the late clincher.

The home side were on top in the opening exchanges and came very close in the 7th minute when a smashing volley by Paul O’Keeffe sped just wide of the far post with keeper Dave Quinn a hopeful spectator.

Hillington hit the front in the 14th minute with a well taken goal. The chance followed good work by Trevor Kelleher up the right. O'Keeffe's shot was blocked in the box but picked up by Graham Horgan who coolly picked his time and spot to make it 1-0.

The home team almost made it 2-0 a couple of minutes later. Then Horgan’s high ball sent skipper Jason Forde clear but Quinn timed his advance perfectly and got down at the feet of the lone raider to make a crucial save.

Gradually, Glenvale worked their way back into it and the 29th minute equaliser had been on the cards for a few minutes. It was a gem. Ray Peelo worked hard to regain the ball after the home defence had half cleared a free and he sent it left to impressive midfielder Dave Cunningham and his flying shot on the turn, from 18 yards, gave keeper Colin Keane no chance.

Hillington were close to going ahead again in the 37th minute. Then Horgan and O’Keeffe combined to free Forde on the right. He drove the ball low and hard across the goal but inches ahead of incoming colleagues.

Glenvale though were having the better of it at this point and the Hillington defence conceded free after free and punishment came in the 43rd minute when Greg Cullinane’s right wing free flew high past keeper Keane and into the net.

The second half started with Quinn making a fine save from Jason Forde but the winners then had two great chances of stretching their lead.

Both fell to Jason Murphy and he should really have scored in the 51st minute. Then a great through ball by Cunningham freed O’Driscoll to cross from the right. He found Murphy unmarked at the far post but his control let him down and the keeper gathered.

Murphy was unlucky three minutes later. Then he stretched to make contact with a long free in by Tony McCarthy but saw his effort go inches wide.

Hillington stepped up the pressure after that and enjoyed majority possession for the next thirty minutes or so. But skipper Adrian O’Driscoll led by example at the heart of a stern Glenvale defence and they countered a rather blunt attack.

The losers lacked coordination and imagination as they went forward and rarely troubled Quinn. The keeper though was lucky enough in the 61st minute when Gary Corcoran deflected a Forde shot just over from seven yards and, 15 minutes later, Quinn made a fine save from the same player after a Hillington free broke loose.

Glenvale made sure of a place in the next round when they scored their third in the 82nd minute. Again Cunningham was the main player in the move. He fought like a tiger to retain possession in the Hillington box and then managed to squeeze in a cross that was met with an overhead Murphy effort that looped over keeper Keane and into the net.

Hillington: Colin Keane, Trevor Kelleher, Harry Dineen, Gary Peglar, Paul Lee, Graham Horgan, Jason Mannix, Paul O’Keeffe, Ken Lee, Gary Corcoran and Jason Forde (captain). Subs used: Donnacha Dalton and John Forde for Mannix and O’Keeffe (both 54th minute) and Glen Cambridge for Dineen (75th).
Glenvale: Dave Quinn, Tony McCarthy, Joe O’Flynn, David Cunningham, Alan O’Driscoll (captain), David Goggin, Ray Peelo, Adrian O’Driscoll, Jimmy Foley, Greg Cullinane and Jason Murphy.
Subs used: John Murphy for O’Flynn (at half-time, injured), Chris O’Callaghan for John Murphy (81st minute) and Graham Punch for Jason Murphy (89th).
Referee: Jim McGrath.

Nostalgia MOTD St Mary's v Kinsale


St Mary’s 1 Kinsale 3

Three subs made the difference as Kinsale, the AUL Premier champions, defeated St Mary’s 3-1 after extra time in a lack-lustre Lucozade Sport Munster Senior Cup encounter at St Mary’s Park on Saturday afternoon.

Kinsale took the lead in the first half through inter-league striker Derek “Scully” McCarthy. Mary’s, living on scraps and their traditional fighting spirit for most of the game, pulled one back in the final quarter before being run out of it by the fresh legs of Sean Prior, Craig McCarthy and Declan Ryan in extra time.

It would be a busy afternoon for Mary’s keeper Keith Lynch but he looked up to the task. First half Kinsale chances fell to defenders Jeremy O’Donovan and Florence Lynch and neither, though well placed in the penalty box, found the target.

Lynch had help from centre-half Dave Keating throughout, notably in the 29th minute. Then a superb pass forward by Kinsale midfielder Colin Kilty put McCarthy through the middle but Keating stayed with him and made a timely tackle to concede a corner.

The opener came in the 32nd minute. Following a foul on Ken Harrington, Coyle hit a terrific 19-yard free kick. Lynch dived to his left but the ball beat him. It came back off the post and then hit his fallen body. The soft rebound might well have crossed the line but McCarthy, always on the alert, ran in ahead of the defence to make sure.

Kinsale were on top for the first ten minutes or so of the second half but didn't have luck on their side. Barry and Harrington combined well and placed McCarthy who beat Lynch but referee Steve O’Connell ruled that the striker was offside and a few minutes later turned down Kinsale appeals for a spotter.

It hadn’t been the most exciting of games and got even quieter for a spell. While Mary's were trying hard, there seemed little real danger to Graham Quinn’s goal. But the Saints enlivened the encounter with an unexpected 72nd minute equaliser. A terrific right wing cross by Steve Hosford was expertly finished off at the far post by the unmarked O’Connor to make it 1-1.

The Kinsale management team, Ger Foran and player Peter Jones, began to bring in their subs but the switches didn't have the desired results until extra time. Scorer McCarthy did have a few shooting chances, a couple from frees, but failed to beat Lynch again in normal time.

Kinsale came very close in the final minute of the first period of extra time when a 25 yard power packed drive from the outstanding Kilty spun wide off the outside of Lynch’s left hand post.

Kinsale, with the trio of subs prominent, took over in the second period. They came very close two minutes in when, following good approach play by Ryan and Harrington, McCarthy had his shot well saved at close quarters by the keeper.

The seasiders went ahead two minutes later, thanks to the three subs. Prior and Craig McCarthy combined and sent Ryan in to the box to blast past the keeper from 14 yards.

Kinsale made it 3-1 with less than two minutes to go. Ryan was denied but the hasty clearance fell to Craig McCarthy and, with the keeper well out of his goal, he tried to lob the ball into the net. It wouldn’t have made it but Derek McCarthy outjumped the last defender to head home and make the final score 3-1.

St Mary’s: Keith Lynch, Anthony O’Callaghan, Ken O’Sullivan, Thomas O’Connor (captain), Dave Keating, Liam King, Noel Barry, Stephen Hosford, James O’Sullivan, Robbie Murphy and Colm Coveney. Subs used: Adrian O’Callaghan for O’Connor (start of extra time) and Leonard Lyons for O’Sullivan (107th minute).
Kinsale: Graham Quinn, Lyndon Kiely, Florence Lynch (captain), Peter Jones, Colin Kilty, Ryan Coyle, Jeremy O’Donovan, Derek McCarthy, Ken Harrington, Dave Barry and Daniel Searls. Subs used: Sean Prior for Searls (57th minute), Craig McCarthy for Coyle (65th) and Declan Ryan for Barry (start of extra time).

Referee: Stephen O’Connell.
