Douglas Hall

YOUTHS LEAGUE CUP FINAL
Douglas Hall 3 Tramore Athletic 1

Douglas Hall turned on the style in the second half to come from behind and defeat Tramore Athletic 3-1 in an exciting game in the final of the Errea Sports Youths League Cup at Turner's Cross on a wet Friday night.

The surface was quite slick and didn’t help and quite often passes to the front runners gathered pace and favoured the sweepers and keepers. To be fair, the ball was rarely in the air. Each side tried its best to play intelligent football even if it didn't always come off and the respective clubs must be happy that such talented players are coming through to play with the adult teams.

Tramore, well led by skipper and centre-forward Sean O’Connor, had the edge in the first half and made it count in the 12th minute. Then the busy bustling Peter Moreland, another key figure in this period, took full advantage of hesitancy in the middle of the Hall defence to blast his shot past keeper Adrian O’Donovan.

Douglas were a different team after the break though their comeback was spurred by a soft enough equaliser in the 55th minute. Amazingly, Troy Kelly was unmarked at the far post as Kennedy’s free from the left came in. Kelly himself was somewhat surprised and took a while to get control before rolling the ball past the keeper. It struck the far post and Long was on hand to finish the job.

Richard Arnopp was beginning to emerge as a candidate for man of the match with his electrifying runs on the left and it was he who would put the Hall ahead on the hour. His scintillating run left his marker on the deck and he cut into the box. The defence was reeling and Arnopp's low drive looked good for the far corner until it took a wicked deflection off a defender and ended in up going by the near post.

The Hall hit that clincher with less than ten to go and again Barry was involved. He hit a terrific cross from the right corner flag. Burke's header was well blocked on the line by Dorney but the grounded keeper could do nothing as the Hall number nine cracked in the loose ball to make it 3-1.

Douglas Hall: Adrian O’Donovan, Kevin O'Sullivan, Graham Coughlan, Derek O'Sullivan, Seamus Long, Mark O'Callaghan, Troy Kelly, Shane Kennedy, Neil Bourke (captain), Stephen Barry and Richard Arnopp. Subs used: Dave Burke for Coughlan (86th) and Dave O'Connor for Kelly (88th).
Tramore Athletic: Dave Dorney, Roy Coughlan, Colin McSweeney, Paul Kerrigan, Robert O'Sullivan, Roy Keating, Peter Moreland, Mark Maher, Sean O’Connor (captain), Ken Murphy and Thomas Horgan. Subs: Paul Murphy for Coughlan (injured 63rd minute) and Darren Moore for McSweeney (82nd).
Referee: John Lyne.


Tramore Athletic
 Managers’ comments


Douglas manager Eoin O'Sullivan was glad to get his side in at the break: “The first half, we were poor. We didn't get enough of the ball in to our forwards; we didn't get a sniff at a goal. We got them in at half-time, had a good long chat with them, sorted a few things out.”

“We came out and gave an outstanding display. I’d have to agree that the half-time talk was the turning point. You saw that display. Fantastic. There’s not many teams that could have stayed with them.”

“I thought Richard Arnopp gave an outstanding display. Seamus Long at centre back was also outstanding as was keeper Adrian O'Donovan, all fantastic. And in the last twenty minutes, Steve Barry upfront held the ball up very well, great running off the ball, and he was one of our major men tonight. Fantastic.”

Tramore manager Colm Sheehan was disappointed but was quick to congratulate the Hall: “We were a bit unfortunate, unlucky, had a couple of chances but possibly, overall, the better team won. But the team played quite well and our best were perhaps Robert O'Sullivan, Ken Murphy and Roy Keating.”

Knocknaheeny
 CORINTHIANS CUP

Blackstone Rovers 2 Knocknaheeny Celtic 2
(Blackstone won 4-2 on penalties, after extra time)

Third division Blackstone Rovers added yet another scalp to their cup list when they defeated higher ranked Knocknaheeny Celtic, the reigning City Cup champs, 4-2 on penalties after an exciting 2-2 draw. 

The losers controlled large passages of the game and created most of the chances, particularly in the second half. But resilient Blackstone, boosted by a 2-0 first half cushion, held on under severe pressure and took their chances in the shootout.
Blackstone opened their account in the 25th minute. Derek McNamara got away on the left and picked out Cooney who had slipped his marker and scored from close range. A smashing solo effort put Blackstone two up in the 38th minute. Alan O’Keeffe ran through from midfield, waltzed past three defenders before whipping a great shot beyond the reach of the isolated keeper.

Knocknaheeny reacted with tremendous spirit and they were rewarded in the 44th minute when Jason Cronin picked out John Murphy on the near post. Murphy rose unmarked and glanced his header into the right hand side of the goal.
They battled on with tremendous spirit but were still one down with minutes to go. They were now wondering whether a goal would ever come. But it did. In the 87th minute. Then skipper Twomey got away and his 25 yard shot found the net. It was no more then they deserved.
The visitors failed to keep up the pressure in extra time and so the game went to the dreaded shootout and Blackstone took the tie on a 4-2 count.

Blackstone Rovers: Colin Bevan, Andrew O’Brien, Eric O’Callaghan, Tony Dunlea, Derek McNamara, Alan O’Keeffe, Colin Galvin, Tony Leahy, Francis Cooney, Dave O'Connor and Alan Coleman. Subs used: Gary Reen for McNamara (36th minute) and Ivan Bevan for O’Keeffe (65th).
Knocknaheeny Celtic : Glen O’Driscoll, Ken Murphy, Ger Crowley, Gary Peglar, Derek Lynch, Anthony McNamara, John Murphy, Roy Kenny, Pat Sheehan, Niall Twomey and Jason Cronin. Sub used: Eoin Cremin for J. Murphy (77th minute).

Lakewood 18s
 YOUTHS 


Everton 3 Lakewood Athletic 0
  
Everton Midfielder Colin Fielding set up two goals in their comfortable 3-0 decision over Lakewood and was a deserving winner of the Evening Echo man of the Match award. Fielding’s splendid performance was the highlight  of this Youths One game and he was unlucky not to seal the show with a goal for himself.

The winners opened their account in the 26th minute. Fielding’s great ball over the top sent Colin Lyons free. Busy keeper Donnacha Murphy blocked the first effort but Lyons made no mistake with the second attempt.
.
Lakewood had their chances and, in the 51st minute, Brian O’Sullivan saw his tremendous effort well saved by Everton’s Shane Sherlock. Everton scored their second goal three minutes later, Fielding again the instigator. He released O’Keeffe who raced away and placed the ball beyond the reach of Murphy. Unfortunately  O’Keeffe injured himself in the process and had to be replaced.

Lakewood’s substitute Daniel Goulding got in behind the Everton defence in the 81st minute and unleashed a vicious strike which flashed narrowly wide. Fielding came close to a goal himself two minutes later. He waltzed beyond three defenders but his effort was well saved by Murphy.

Everton got their third with a few minutes to go. Andrew Cotter sent a magnificent ball through for Walsh who rounded the Lakewood goalkeeper and smashed the ball into the empty net.

Everton: Shane Sherlock, Gregory Barry, Brian Cahill, Gordon Sexton, Owen Cronin, Colin Lyons, Andrew Cotter, David O’Keeffe, Keith Gahan, Colin Fielding and Paul Walsh. Sub used: Derek Newman for  O’Keeffe (54th minute, injured).
Lakewood Athletic: Donnacha Murphy, Fergus McAuliffe, Ciaran Maguire, Paul Courtney, Darren O’Connor, Alan Healy, Brian O’Sullivan, Pat Kelly, Robert O’Shea, Kevin Walsh and David O’Callaghan. Subs used : Daniel Goulding and Shane McCarthy for O’Connor and Maguire (both 61st minute) and Conor Hallissey for McAuliffe (68th).
Referee:  Tony Horgan.

Carbury
 STATOIL FAI JUNIOR CUP 


Kinsale 2 Carbury Celtic 1
(after extra time)

Jeremy O’Donovan scored the winner as Kinsale advanced in the Statoil FAI Junior Cup with a 2-1 extra time win over Sligo visitors Carbury Celtic. Kinsale had a great start here, scoring in the 12th minute, but Carbury fought back well and equalised in the first half.

Both Derek McCarthy and skipper Dave Barry went close for Kinsale before McCarthy broke away to outfox Carbury keeper David Scanlon and open the scoring.

Keith Lynch was soon to emerge as a dangerman on the Sligo team. He set up captain Shane Hayes for a shot that came back off the post and then forced home keeper David O'Callaghan into action himself.

In the 24th minute, Lynch was again bothering the home defence. Gearoid Cummins took him down in the box and Hayes equalised from the spotter.

Both teams had their chances before Jeremy came up with the winner four minutes into extra time, arriving at the back post just in time to stab the ball home after the visitors had failed to clear a corner kick.

Kinsale: David O’Callaghan, Florence Lynch, Sean Foran, Gearoid Cummins, Peter Jones, Pat Murphy, Jeremy O’Donovan, Derek McCarthy, Sean Prior, Stephen O'Donovan and Dave Barry (captain). Subs used: David O’Donovan for Foran  (at half-time) and Gary O’Sullivan for Prior (75th minute).
Carbury: David Scanlon, Ronan Foley, John Loftus, Eoin Conlon, Mark Quinn, Adrian McGarry, Keith Lynch, Shane Hayes (captain), Paul Masterson, Nigel Harganlon and Darren Dunbar. Subs used: Colin Harganlon for Loftus (53rd minute), Cathal Leggatt for Conlon (62nd) and Marcus Lyons for Nigel Harganlon (extra time, 5th minute).
Referee: Damien O'Mahony

Grattan

PREMIER 
Grattan United 2 Villa Utd  1

The battle of the promoted sides in the Murphy’s Stout AUL Premier League ended in Grattan United getting the better of Villa United to record their first home league win of the season. Villa though will look back with regret to the first half when they missed many chances.

Villa did all the early pressing and Grattan keeper Adam Lynch was regularly in impressive action but he needed the help of a post in the 8th minute. Then Villa defender Paul Murphy came in unmarked at the end of a corner but hit the timber.

The Villa pressure continued. Brian Montgomery got in behind but shot wide, and, in 24th minute, Lynch made a great point blank save form Willie Harris who would bother the home keeper a few times more before the half.

The second half started in similar pattern but bit by bit Grattan were beginning to get their share of the ball and scored a great goal in the 70th minute.

John Kelleher got away on the left and fired a measured cross to the head of John Paul O’Sullivan and he thundered the ball into the back of the net giving Denis Murphy no chance whatsoever.

Grattan doubled their advantage in the 79th minute when captain Denis Cremin sent John Paul away on the left and he unleashed an unstoppable shot which flashed low and hard beyond the reach of the diving keeper.

Grattan’s tails were up now and they threatened to add to their tally, John Kelleher going particularly close,  but it was Villa who would get the next one. Striker Paul Murphy crossed to the near post and sub Lima Dennehy headed home. But that 88th minute goal was too little too late.
