Ballyvolane v Kanturk Nostalgia Match of the Day 2006

AUL 1A 30/04/06

Ballyvolane 2 Kanturk 3

Geoffrey O’Callaghan headed a smashing second half winner as Kanturk defeated Ballyvolane 3-2 in their top four clash in Murphy’s Stout AUL 1A.

The win keeps Kanturk’s title hopes alive and puts them in pole position for the runners up medals. Leaders Castleview were present at the game but left disappointed, as a Ballyvolane victory would have given them the title.

O’Callaghan’s flashing header was about the only highlight of a dull second half, an earlier Ballyvolane equaliser being something of a fluke.

Kanturk had started well and indeed Noel O’Callaghan came very close to giving them a first minute lead. Kanturk, thanks mainly to efforts of midfielder Damien Kelleher, led 2-1 at the break, having twice taken the lead in a first half that wasn't a whole pile better then the second.

Noel O’Callaghan’s early chance came after the home defence failed to clear a long free in by Tadhg Collins. In the 5th minute, Eugene O’Sullivan passed forward to Mick Reid. He peeled away from his marker but his shot on the turn from the edge of the box was too high.

Ballyvolane weren’t at the races at all in the opening quarter. In the 9th minute, a Collins corner flashed all the way across the goal and, ten minutes later, Jamie Haugh robbed Peter Nugent in midfield and his skilful run to the edge of the box ended with a low shot that was just wide of the far post.

A goal was on the cards and it came n the 25th minute, following a foul on Reid. Ballyvolane packed the wall but, from 24 yards, Kelleher fired a beauty past it and low into the right hand corner of Condon's net.

Ballyvolane woke up after that. In the 30th minute, Nugent forced a corner. Dave Keane swung it over, Jeremy Lettis headed on by the near post but skipper John O’Driscoll’s far post header, a difficult one, was a shade too high.

Kanturk’s Kelleher was just off with a 32nd minute header from a Collins free and the home team equalised in the next minute. Nugent’s diagonal pass from left to right found Lettis steaming in by the far post. He had a poor enough angle but still managed to beat keeper O’Callaghan with a stunning shot.

Ballyvolane were now on a bit of a high. In the 35th minute, a quickly taken free by Dave Keohane sent Guiton free to cross towards Keane but the striker made just very slight contact with his head and the ball ran wide.

Soon afterwards, the Kanturk keeper saved an intelligent back flick by Cronin with some difficulty. With less than two minutes to go, Ballyvolane gifted a lead goal to their visitors. Kelleher, not by any measure the tallest man on the field, jumped in a forest of Ballyvolane players and his far post header ended up in the net, the final touches coming from home defenders as one, on the line, belted his clearance against the rear end of another. 

Not much doing in that dreary second half though Haugh did have to take a Nugent header off the Kanturk line in the 62nd minute and, in the 77th, home keeper Condon did well to intercept a Haugh cross before it could each sub Jason O’Sullivan.

It was 2-2 in the next minute when Cronin's cross from the right swerved over the stranded keeper and into the net via the top of the far post. O’Callaghan’s fine winner, from a Haugh corner, came seven minutes later. 

Ballyvolane: Ger Condon, Mark O’Mahony, Dave Keohane, Dave Hickey, Paul O’Callaghan, John O’Driscoll (captain), Peter Nugent, Niall Guiton, Dave Keane, Martin Cronin and Jeremy Lettis. Subs used: Brendan Nyhan for Keane (57th minute) and Steven Byrne for O’Mahony (66th).
Kanturk: Paudie O’Callaghan, Geoffrey O’Callaghan, Dan O’Mahony, John Lynch (captain), Noel O’Callaghan, Damien Kelleher, Tadhg Collins, Martin O’Riordan, Eugene O’Sullivan, Mick Reid and Jamie Haugh. Sub used: Jason O’Sullivan for Reid (50th minute).

Referee: Sean Barry.

Ballincollig v Ballyphehane Celtic April 2006. #Nostalgia Match of the Day

AUL 1 29/04/06

Ballincollig 0 Ballyphehane Celt 1

Johnny Towler headed home the first half winner as visitors Ballyphehane Celtic took the honours when the top two in Murphy’s Stout AUL 1 clashed at the Regional Park on Saturday. A win would have given Ballincollig the title – it was their final game- but Towler’s goal and his five star performance means the title race will go down to the wire.

UCC are co-favourites with Ballyphehane, following their 3-1 win over Douglas Hall, and the pair meet on Saturday next in a probable decider, that is, if they have won their games tomorrow evening when Celtic take on Alberts while UCC play Lakewood. Ballincollig will be hoping for double slip-up and a three-way play-off is not beyond the bounds of possibility.

Ballyphehane manager Dave O’Mahony, who has already seen his charges win the St Michael's Cup, was naturally thrilled, happy with his charges: “I didn't make any substitutes. They were on their game, no need to disrupt that. The defence was solid throughout and the midfield worked back to help them out. This was a great team performance and I would be reluctant to pick anyone out.”

” It looks now as if it will go down to the wire. We have two games left and if we win both, then we’ll win the league and that would make it a great double for the season.”

Although reluctant to single any player out, Dave wouldn’t have objected had Johnny Towler been named man of the match: “No, I’d go along with that. He was superb, he worked his socks off, scored the goal, was close to a second early in the second half and got us a few vital corners to keep Ballincollig penned back in their own half.”

Ballincollig’s best chances to win on Saturday all came in the first half but they were denied a cruel three times by the very same post, the one to the right of Celtic's new keeper Eric O’Sullivan.
The winner!

Just seven minutes in, Stephen Nolan fired a low drive towards that corner but it came back off the post. Worse was to follow in the 36th minute. Then a rasping drive, a really powerful effort by Bryan McNulty, crashed off the timber and rebounded some twenty yards or more into the path of supporting defender Leonard Long. Long met it sweetly and his swerving shot looked destined for the corner until a swerve too many took it against that post and the rebound was cleared.

Celtic were already a goal to the good, the opener scored in the 13th minute. It followed a well taken free in from the right by Wayne Hogan. The ball broke off the crowd in the box and there, on the other side, totally unmarked, was Towler and he comfortably headed the bouncing ball past keeper Cian O’Callaghan.

Earlier Alan O'Mahony drove over the Ballincollig bar from close range when he should really have hit the target and later Eric Dunlea, on the break, drove over when racing unopposed into the Ballincollig box.

The second half was a tamer affair, the hot sun taking his toll. Ballincollig failed to exert any great degree of pressure and indeed the best chance came at the other end.

That was in the 51st minute when the busy Towler robbed a Ballincollig defender and then tried to lob the keeper who was in no man’s land. But young O’Callaghan somehow managed to reach up and get a touch and he then moved back a pace or two to gather and keep his side’s hopes alive.

But his colleagues failed to rally and the defeat means they now have an anxious week, as indeed do UCC and Ballyphehane. Watch this space!

Ballincollig: Cian O’Callaghan, David O’Callaghan, Trevor O’Mahony, Jason O'Leary, Mark Buckley (captain), Leonard Long. Thomas Galvin, Stephen Nolan, Bryan McNulty, Timmy O'Leary and Cathal O’Callaghan. Subs used: David Donovan for Nolan (56th minute) and Anthony Ryan and Paul Foley for O'Leary and D.

Harp United v Central Rovers April 2006

CITY CHALLENGE CUP, 2nd round 23/4/06

Harp United 3 Central Rovers 3
(Central won 3-2 on penalties)

Second division Central Rovers were forced to take the shootout route to victory by a game Harp United outfit when the sides contested a second round tie in the Murphy’s Stout City Challenge Cup at Monard on a sunny Sunday morning.

Harp skipper Alan Molloy and strike partner Willie O'Brien had ran the Central defence ragged during the game itself but failed to deliver in the shootout where a save by Central keeper Paul McCarthy proved crucial. McCarthy had played well after an early error gifted Harp their opener.

Central sub Darren “George” McCarthy was perhaps the unluckiest player on the field but he still managed to play a huge role as they three times came from behind to take the tie to extra time. George hit the post and bar as Central, in a spell of late normal time dominance, threatened to take victory without the prolongation.

Favourites Central looked good early on. James Mullins was narrowly wide with a first minute low drive and then midfielder Dave Purcell saw his penalty box shot go wide off a colleague.

Third division Harp got their noses in front in the 17th minute. The dodgy Central defence failed to clear a long free in by Harp full back Hennessey. It skidded off a defender’s head and surprised keeper McCarthy who failed to hold it. Molloy cracked it home from close-in.

Willie O'Brien was then narrowly wide with a terrific 25th minute volley and then almost profited from another Central error but his 30th minute strike saw McCarthy make a decent save.

Central lost midfielder James Russell to injury but came up with a 33rd minute equaliser, Tommy Mullins on target with a well placed far post header after a terrific cross from the right by James Mullins.

Harp though restored their lead four minutes from the interval. Then after a good passing move, O'Brien made a great run towards the end line and pulled the ball back for the incoming Molloy to score, again from close range.

Sub McCarthy was involved as Central squared the game ten minutes into the second half. A back-heel by scorer Mullins saw him threaten in the box and his hopes of a goal for himself were ended when David Wallace brought him down. Tommy Mullins stepped up to convert the penalty.

Chances continued at both ends. Following a 58th minute McCarthy free, scorer Mullins came close to a hat trick with a powerful far post header that flew just wide of the other stick. Minutes later, Molloy put O'Brien in at the other end but the drive was inches away.

A sweeping Harp move led to them going 3-2 up in the 70th minute, O’Brien on target after a through ball by Molloy and a sweet touch by sub Cian Horgan.

Jamie Murray then put McCarthy in but the Harp keeper made a fine save in the 75th minute. Harp could have sealed it in the 84th minute. Then Denis O’Brien cut through on the right, racing from halfway before his shot was stopped brilliantly by keeper McCarthy.

Central equalised three minutes from time. Jamie Mullins set McCarthy up for a penalty box shot that hit the butt of the near post. Tommy Mullins chested back into the six yard box and Mark O'Mahony touched it home to make it 3-3.

They could have won it with just over a minute to go. Then McCarthy got in a smashing header from a cross by Tommy Mullins but keeper Fitzgerald just managed to touch it onto the bar.

In extra time, McCarthy had a shot taken off the line by Molloy and Central keeper McCarthy saved well from O'Brien before going on to do the business in the shootout.

Harp United: Colm Fitzgerald, Ger Hennessey, Pat Lane, Timmy Wilson, Mick Delea, David Wallace, Denis O'Brien, Stephen O’Connell, Alan Molloy (captain), Willie O'Brien and John Nagle. Subs used: Cian Horgan for Nagle (56th minute) and Derry Crowley for Hennessey (73rd).

Match of the Day 2006. Grattan United v Macroom.

AUL PREMIER A 22/4/06

Grattan United 1 Macroom 2



Two first quarter goals and a string of top class saves by AUL inter-league keeper Shane O'Leary helped promotion chasers Macroom to a fine 2-1 away win over champions Grattan United in Murphy’s Stout AUL Premier A at O’Neill Park on Saturday.

Grattan won the title a week previous and even did Macroom a favour in midweek by outscoring Togher 4-2 but their visitors, well led by O'Leary, young Barry O’Donnell and the evergreen Kevin Sheehan, weren’t in party mood as this top of the table tie kicked off. 

They still had business of their own to do and set about it early on. Grattan defensive hesitancy helped them. O’Donnell wasn’t hesitating. He nipped in between the wavering defender and keeper and put the visitors one up in the second minute.

Sheehan then made his first major contribution. That came in after a 6th minute error in the Macroom defence. It looked as if centre forward Timmy Long would score but Sheehan got back to make a superb penalty box tackle to save the day.

And Sheehan's second big play, in the 18th minute, was even more memorable. Then Szok Arek swept in a corner from the left. It broke to Sheehan and he found the net with an inch perfect lob from the edge of the box.

Long was the main man for Grattan upfront and he manufactured a chance for himself in the 21st minute when he outfoxed defender Brendan O'Mahony at the edge of the box but his 16-yard shot was well astray.

A series of Grattan corners followed and Long rose at the near post to head one past O'Leary in the 27th minute to make it 2-1. O’Donnell came close to stretching the lead on the half-hour but, after showing neat footwork, his shot from just outside the box flashed across the goal and just wide of the far post.

John Kelleher's cross from the right tempted O'Leary off his line in the next minute and he was beaten to the touch by the incoming Mark O’Sullivan but O’Mahony, one of a pretty solid back four, was back on the line to kick the ball away.

Grattan piled on the pressure as half-time approached but just couldn’t find a way past O'Leary who made some splendid saves, most of them from close range as crosses and corners flew into his six yard box.

Surprisingly, the Grattan momentum dropped off in the second half and the visiting keeper and his defence had an easier time of it. Still, O'Leary did have the opportunity to show his class. 

His best save of this period came in the 69th minute. Then Long’s well-placed lob seemed to have his beating. But O’Leary stretched to his last inch and clawed the ball out from under the bar. The loose ball fell to the incoming John Kelleher but he was instantly crowded out and Macroom survived.

Minutes earlier, O’Leary had been relieved to see Grattan captain Paul Lynch lift his far post volley, from a long free in by defensive colleague Brian O’Sullivan, over the bar and, with a few minutes to go, O'Leary did well to touch a close range Lynch header over the top.

There was something of a scare for Macroom in between. Then their defender Trevor O’Brien went to head a long ball in. But the wind driven drive skidded off his head and it was a relieved Macroom man that looked back to see nothing worse than a corner conceded.

Grattan United: Adam Lynch, Damien Peelo, Darren Galvin, Brian O’Sullivan, Paul Lynch (captain), Pat O’Connor, Barry O’Rourke, Alan O'Brien, Timmy Long, John Kelleher and Mark O’Sullivan. Subs used: Darren Geaney for O’Connor (60th) and John O’Sullivan for O’Rourke (70th).
Macroom: Shane O’Leary (captain), Brendan O’Mahony, Darren O'Brien, Trevor O'Brien, Darra Deasy, John Angland, William O’Riordan, Anthony O’Donoghue, Szok Arek, Barry O’Donnell and Kevin Sheehan. Subs used: Brian Horgan for Sheehan (58th minute) and Red Kirby for Arek (74th).

Referee: Sean Hegarty.

CONGRATULATION FROM THE CORK AUL:
To the Cork Youth League for their fantastic and convincing 5-2 victory over the Limerick District league in the FAI Umbro Inter League final at O'Shea Park on Sunday.

Togher Rovers 2 Village United B 1

AOH CUP 16/4/06

Togher Rovers 2 Village United B 1
(after extra time)

Togher Rovers scored two top drawer goals as they came from behind to defeat a gallant second division Village United B 2-1 in Sunday morning’s Murphy’s Stout AOH Cup tie at Silverheights.  But overall the Premier A visitors failed to sparkle and were within seven minutes of a shock exit to the underdogs.

Village led from the opening minutes of the second half and looked like going through until experienced Togher full back Austin O'Connor equalised. Togher did have the edge in extra time and booked their place in the next round with a sweetly struck Daniel Cooper free kick.

Cooper might well have scored as early as the 6th minute but his firm drive after a neat pass by skipper Pakie O’Connor was well held by home keeper John Lynch who played soundly throughout.

Trevor O'Mahony went close for Togher with a well hit free and then had a shot deflected for a corner, which was well caught by Lynch.

The Togher defence were turned midway through, the work done on the right by Village skipper Alan Daly. His cross was also a good one but centre-forward Francis McNamara got under the ball and headed over from six or seven yards.

Then a Village corner broke to Harry Noonan but his effort was blocked at close quarters. In the 25th minute, a long range drive by Jason Walsh, a hopeful one, had keeper Lynch at full stretch and he just managed to touch it over and was then relieved to see Keith Gahan’s glancing header from the corner flash just wide.

It was a generally scrappy game on a hard uneven surface but Togher did manage to string a few passes together in the 34th minute. Damien O'Leary started the move and, after the involvement of Pakie O’Connor and Walsh, came in at the far post but his header went straight to Lynch.

Village took the lead in the second minute of the second half. Ciaran O’Connor’s free into the box was helped on by Daly and John McNamara took full advantage of some hesitancy in the Togher defence to knock the ball past John Punch.

Togher huffed and puffed after that but generally failed to unsettle the home defence, though O'Leary did see his 57th minute header from a corner taken off the line by Francis McNamara.

The southsiders were losing their shape and going nowhere until experienced subs Nigel O’Callaghan and Richard “Minty” Fitzgerald were introduced.

And former schoolboy international Minty was involved as they equalised in the 82nd minute. He took a pass from the hard working Walsh and his diagonal ball into the danger area was fired high into the net by raiding full back Austin O’Connor.

O’Callaghan came close to getting a goal for himself eight minutes into extra time. Lynch, under pressure from the incoming Pakie O’Connor, took his eye off the ball and his rare error allowed the ball run wide to Austin O’Connor. O’Callaghan met his cross by the far post but keeper Lynch had by then recovered his position and made the save.

Two minutes later, Austin set up another great chance with a cross from the right but the incoming Walsh mis-cued and the ball spun horribly wide of the sticks.

Togher were now on top and got the winner five minutes into the second period of extra time, a period that started with Lynch saving well from a Walsh shot on the turn.

The home keeper did manage to get a hand to Cooper’s flying 20 yard free kick but the power in the shot was too much for Lynch and he just couldn’t manage to keep it out and Togher could at last breath easily. It was a deserved victory in the end but one that Village made them work hard for.

Village United: John Lynch, Paul Hickey, Mark Kiely, Harry Noonan, Clive Hurley, Brian O’Callaghan, Alan Hickey, Ciaran O’Connor, Francis McNamara, Alan Daly (captain) and John McNamara. Subs: Paul Kelly for Noonan (58th minute) and Brian Cronin for J. McNamara (107th).
Togher Rovers: John Punch, Austin O’Connor, Trevor O’Mahony, Billy McCarthy, Keith Edwards, Jason Walsh, Danny Cooper, Keith Gahan, Patrick O’Connor (captain), Damien O'Leary and Colin Fielding. Subs used: Nigel O’Callaghan for Fielding (65th minute), Richard Fitzgerald for O'Leary (76th) and Derek Cullinane for O’Mahony (81st).

Referee: Damien O’Mahony.
