STATOIL FAI JUNIOR CUP 

Village United 2 Freebooters 2
(Freebooters won 5-4 on penalties)

Heartbreak for Village Utd as they went out of the Statoil FAI Junior Cup on penalties after coming from two down to draw 2-2 with Kilkenny visitors Freebooters in normal time.

Penalties were a talking point at Silverheights. Village, two down at the break after a nervous first half, pulled a goal back from the spot in the 63rd minute and, with three minutes to go, should have had another spotter after the outstanding Eric Burns had had his heels clipped as he threatened in the box.

Village started well enough and both Johnny Cooney and Alan O’Brien had inviting opportunities before the Kilkenny side took the lead in the 13th minute. Alan Dowling got in a good cross from the right and Tim Clifford reacted well in the box to head home.

The goal took the wind out of the Village sails and they exerted little pressure on the visitors for the next twenty five or so. Freebooters weren’t forcing the issue either but did get a  second in the 36th minute. Then poor tackling in the centre of defence saw John O’Hara get in. He was eventually blocked but Ian Cleary scored off the loose ball after keeper Jamie Donovan had parried his first effort.

Village showed a little bit more bite as the half closed and unsettled the visitors on a few occasions. Eric Burns had a great run in the 41st minute and passed to Conan Burns but his shot was too high. Then Conan set up the lively Terry Lotty for a shot that drew a good save from Graham Doyle.

Jinty O’Sullivan enjoyed a good start to the second half and lifted Village. In the 54th minute, he outfoxed two markers in the box but his cross eluded two colleagues. Lotty then had a shot deflected wide and Freebooters somehow survived a major scramble following a 56th minute corner.

It was all one way now and no surprise that Village scored in the 63rd minute. O'Sullivan was fouled in the box and Kevin Dunn fired home.

And it was a Dunn shot that led to the 74th minute equaliser. His shot, after a well worked set piece, was helped on by Conor Jones but the final touch was off a Kilkenny defender.

The big penalty shout came with three minutes to go as Eric Burns worked his way into the box. A defender tried a tackle from behind and caught him on the heel but well placed referee Hegarty was not impressed.

Village continued to have the better of it in the first period of extra time and sub Leslie Kepple should have scored when clean through but his strong shot hit the side netting and later a Kepple free found the head of O'Brien but the effort was too high.

In between, Cleary hit a great cross for Freebooters from left to right but sub Jordan, coming in at the far post, had to settle for a corner.

Village again had the edge in the second period but a Richard Burns cross was just too far ahead of Jinty. Kepple was held up by his marker after a multi-pass Village move and Lotty went very close with a low drive as time came to an end.

The shootout was a very even affair. Village keeper Donovan got in the scoring act when he netted in the third exchange but it was Kilkenny keeper and captain Doyle who dived to his right to turn Kepple’s effort over and give Freebooters a 5-4 decision and a place in the 6th round.

Village United: Jamie Donovan, Clive Hurley, Kevin Dunn, David Quirke, Conor Jones (captain), Conan Burns, Terry Lotty, Eric Burns, Alan O’Brien, Jonathan O'Sullivan and Johnny Cooney. Subs used: Richard Burns for Cooney (49th minute) and Leslie Kepple for C. Burns (80th).
Freebooters: Graham Doyle (captain), David Kerwick, Michael Falsey, Eoghan Delaney, Niall Trelis, John O’Hara, Alan Dowling, Ian Cleary, Timothy Clifford, John Valentine and Aaron Broaders. Subs used: Mark Jordan for Dowling (30th minute, injured) and Edward Culleton for Cleary (110th).

Referee: Sean Hegarty.

FAI JUNIOR CUP 
Village United 2 Grattan United 2
(Village, in red, won 4-3 on penalties after extra time)

Sub Leslie Kepple whacked in the decisive penalty, the last of the regulation ten, as Village Utd advanced to the open draw of this season’s Statoil FAI Junior Cup with a thrilling shootout win over visitors Grattan Utd.

The Silverheights encounter promised much – and it delivered. The homesters raced into an early two goal lead but had a man sent off midway through the first half. 

Jinty O’Sullivan was switched back to a sweeper role and Village held out until midway through the second half. Grattan then pulled one back and soon added another to take the tie to extra time. By that time Grattan themselves were down to ten, one of their players having picked up a second yellow with five minutes of normal time left.

Grattan endured a torrid start at Silverheights and found themselves two down after about ten minutes. It could have been worse. In the 2nd minute, Brian Sheehan chipped the ball over Adam Lynch but was just off target.

Sheehan soon got another opportunity and, thanks to a pass by Eric Burns, opened the account. And the Village account soon swelled to two, Conan Burns on target from an acute angle. Terry Lotty was outstanding for Village at this point and it was he who set up the second.

Village suffered a blow in the 22nd minute when a defender  was red carded. But the home side were still having the better of it and came ever so close to a third in the 31st minute. Then a Jinty free broke loose in the box and both Lotty and Sheehan had shots blocked and the ball rebounded unpredictably in the six yard area before going behind off a Village player.

And Grattan were lucky again in the 38th minute. Then Sheehan reached a long free in by Rob O'Regan but his gentle touch, enough to beat Lynch, was inches wide.

Grattan, inspired by their two goal comeback against Glencairn in a previous round, took the game to Village after the break. And they came close in the 54th minute. Then, after a period of pressure on the right, young John Kearney, who had played with the AUL youths in the Cross on Friday night, squared the ball to John Paul O'Sullivan but he found keeper Jamie Donovan at his feet as he shot.

And Kearney was involved as Grattan pulled one back in the 68th minute. He found Mark O'Sullivan on the right. O'Sullivan jinked his way past the defence and his low cross was perfect for Darren Geaney who shot high past Donovan's left hand and into the top corner.

It was a sweet strike and inspired Grattan and they equalised in the 74th minute. This time there was a little bit of luck. An attempted Village clearance rebounded across the box. Mark O’Sullivan latched onto it and his cool finish past the advancing Donovan made it all square.

Grattan were now going for it but Donovan was defiant. In the 79th minute, Mark O’Sullivan and sub Damien Peelo combined and set up Geaney but the keeper saved as he did five minutes later when Denis Cremin’s cross found Eric Shinkwin.

Grattan lost their man advantage in the 85th minute when their man picked up his second yellow from referee Flor Mehigan.

Village were unlucky not to take the tie in the first period of extra time. A shot from the left by Alan O'Brien came down off the bar and sub Will O’Callaghan let fly but was blocked at close quarters by the defence.

The most significant move of the second period was the introduction of Kepple by the Village management trio, a move that would pay dividends when he slotted home the final penalty of the ten kick shootout. Fellow subs Cooney and O'Callaghan, along with the ever reliable Jinty, had previously netted for the winners who had been given a first exchange boost by Donovan's save from Cremin.

AOH CUP
St John Bosco’s B 1 Albert Rovers 1
(after extra time)

You know when Bosco’s B keeper Noel Murphy is on the field. You hear him. But Murphy’s constant shouting to his colleagues is just one aspect of his game. 

He showed another at Water Rock Park on Saturday when making a series of fine saves and well judged interventions to help Bosco's B to a 1-1 draw in the Murphy Stout AOH Cup with visitors Albert Rovers who enjoyed majority possession and had enough ball to win comfortably.

Rovers will be kicking themselves. Cruising to a third round date with Glenthorn B, they took their foot off the pedal and were caught by a late equaliser. They again held the upper hand in extra time, particularly in the second period, but Murphy was in no mood to concede another and a replay will now be arranged for the Douglas Community School.

Murphy was regularly tested in the first half and he made perhaps his best save in the 13the minute. Mick Sadic had knifed his way through the defence but, having passed the last man, found Murphy blocking his shot just as it left his foot.

And Sadic was again foiled in the 20th minute as he latched onto a header-on by Mark Molloy. Midway through, Murphy made another fine stop, beating away a near post effort by Alan Daly.

Bosco's had just one noteworthy effort in this opening period and that came with about three minutes to go. Then Anthony Dunne raced in on goal after a Joe Hartnett long ball had broken for him. Dunne coolly slotted past advancing keeper Brendan O'Sullivan and couldn’t believe it when the low drive went wide off the outside of the post.

The third quarter was a fairly even contest before Alberts regained the initiative and indeed gained the lead midway through. The 67th minute breakthrough followed a couple of minutes of intense pressure. Sadic received the ball, on the right, and his cross fell for Gary Wade whose 18 yard drive sped low through a crowded box and past the probably unsighted keeper.

But Murphy denied Wade a couple of minutes later to keep his side in the match and had his reward with less than four minutes to go. Graham Dennehy floated a long free kick into a poorly defended area of the Albert’s box and Dunne whipped a low drive past the advancing keeper and into the far corner.

The first period of extra time didn't produce much though a shot on the turn by Albert‘s sub Kieran Kennelly left Murphy stranded for once and he was relieved to see it flash wide of his far post.

The city outfit ruled in the second period but Murphy wasn't about to loosen his grip on his own little kingdom. In the 4th minute, he was in just the right place to grab a volley by Sadic.

There were two Sadics to contend by now but Murphy would not be beaten. Mick lifted an overhead lob over the backs and into the path of brother Kevin but the sub was surprised by the speed of Murphy who intervened to prevent the shot.

And Murphy was smiling again a minute later. Then scorer Wade broke into the Saints’ box on the right but, from a good position, drove well over the target. It was Murphy’s day and even a yellow card from referee Stephen O'Connell failed to dampen his noisy spirit. 

St John Bosco’s B: Noel Murphy, Eric Desmond, Graham Dennehy, Joe Hartnett, Gerry O'Sullivan, Greg Cahill, Joe Ryan, Ken O'Mahony, Anthony Dunne, Tony Flynn and Thomas O'Leary. Subs used: Willie Crowley for Flynn (63rd minute), Mark O’Brien for Cahill (75th) and Alan Ahern for O'Sullivan (85th).

Albert Rovers: Brendan O'Sullivan, Mick Brennan, Kevin O'Callaghan, John Lowry, Alan Daly, Mark Collins, Gary Wade, Niall Murphy, Mark Molloy, Mick Sadic and William Daly. Subs used: Kieran Kenneally for W. Daly (61st minute) and Kevin Sadic for Collins (84th). 

Referee: Stephen O’Connell.
