AUL 1A, top four clash

Geoffrey O'Callaghan headed the late winner as Kanturk kept the pressure on 1A leaders Castleview with a fine 3-2 away win over Ballyvolane. The 'View, who have 3 games to go, would have been champs on the day had Ballyvolane won. More details in Wednesday's Echo.

AUL 1 Top of Table

Scorer Johnny Towler (seen celebrating with Alan O'Mahony, left, in picture) was the main man for Ballyphehane Celtic as they defeated leaders Ballincollig 1-0 in the top of the table AUL 1 clash at the Regional Park today. Ballincollig hit the post three times and must now wait to see how Celtic and UCC (3-1 winners over Douglas today) get on this week and in their direct meeting next Saturday. Two wins for either the Students or Celtic would mean the title but if they both win midweek and draw Saturday, then Ballincollig are back for a three way play-off.

This weekend

I'll be at AUL One, Ballincollig v Ballyphehane on Sat,
One A, Ballyvolane v Kanturk on Sun.

Well done to Macroom who broke the unbeaten record of champions Grattan Utd by winning 2-1 in Premier A today (Sat) at O'Neill Park. Veteran Kevin Sheehan (centre pic) scored a gem for the winners who kept their own promotion hopes alive. Congrats to Grattan who were presented with the league trophy after the game.

Well done to Kinsale on their great win over Clonmel Town in the 1/4 final of the Munster Senior Cup. Visitors Clonmel went ahead in the 2nd minute. Steve O'Donovan equalised late on before extra time strikes by Declan Ryan (left) and Danny Searls put Kinsale through to face Cobh Ramblers.

Well done also to the Village B side that put up a great show before losing 2-1 (aet) to Premier A team Togher Rvrs in the AOH. John McNamara put Village ahead early in 2nd half; Austin O'Connor netted a late equaliser and an extra time free kick special by Danny Cooper gave Togher a hard earned win at Silverheights.

Ballyphehane Celtic 1 Mayfield United 1
Ballyphehane won 5-4 on penalties.

Skipper Philip Long fired in the winning spotter as Ballyphehane Celtic pipped Mayfield United 5-4 on penalties after their Murphy’s Stout St Michael’s Cup final at Turner’s Cross last evening had ended at 1-1 after normal and extra time. It was the second final shootout loss in a row for the Mayfield lads, as last season, they were edged out by Ballintotis.

In the 43rd minute, referee Tom Tully ruled that Mayfield's Sean Madden had clattered into the back of Eric Dunlea as they both went for a dropping ball and full back Ryan came up to score past Ramsell.

Mayfield drew level in the final minute. Then a Conor Lehane effort broke loose close to goal and young Cillian Burns pounced to take the tie to extra time.

Ballyphehane Celtic: Alan Crowley, Joe Ryan, Wayne Hogan, Philip Long (captain), David Bennett, Danny Long, Trevor Dunlea, Eric Dunlea, Alan O’Mahony, Jonathan Murphy and Johnny Towler. Subs: Wayne Dunlea for Towler (84th), David O’Mahony for Murphy (86th), Michael Lee for W. Dunlea (90th minute, injured), Kevin Ward and Damien Farrelly.
