Burrin Celtic AFC 2 - 1 St Fiacc's AFC

A contender for game of the season in Ballon this morning saw two outstanding teams playing to a very high level. The first half was a tight affair with chances few and far between as the midfield battle between Burrins Una McFarland and Fiaccs Hannah Mathews was a joy to watch then a great chance falling to Fiaccs Ashlee Smith but Abby Keppel in the Burrin goal made an outstanding save to keep the score nil/nil at half time.

The second half saw Burrin start strong with Eimear Bolger leading the line and her hold up play caused problems for the Fiaccs defence.

Midway through the half the ball fell to Lucy Kinsella on the edge of the 18 yard box she took the ball on her right foot then on to her left and drilled the ball into the goal to give Burrin a well deserved one nil lead.

Fiaccs showed their fighting spirit and came back strongly with Ali O Connor showing her quality and their play saw a ball over the top and Hannah Matthews hit a looping shot over the on rushing keeper to make it one all.

Kate Kearns was marshalling her defence brilliantly for Burrin and Anna Cullen fighting for every ball for Burrin to get back into the lead.

With ten minutes left Eimear Bolger, Lucy Kinsella combined to feed Keelie Doyle and she raced through to make it 2-1 to Burrin. A few minutes later another Burrin break saw Sophia Slattery just shoot wide after some great play around the Fiaccs box.

A great game played by both sides and well refereed by Artur Bienko and everyone supporting saw the level of girls soccer in Carlow is at a very high standard.

Best for Burrin Aoife Bergin, Caoimhe Dempsey, Eimear Bolger, Lucy Kinsella and Una McFarland

Best for Fiaccs were Ashlee Smith, Hannah Matthews and Ali O’ Connor

Best of luck to both teams in SFAI cup next week!

U16 Girls 14/01 11:00
Vale Wanderers AFC 3 - 2 Burrin Celtic AFC

Vale wanderers and Burrin Celtic girls played out an excellent game in the SuperBowl today. The conditions were unfavorable for a game of soccer with a blustery wind, which Made it very difficult to get the ball down.

Burrin started the game well and dominated the early stages putting vale under a bit of pressure. Leah Mannion started the game well and was pulling the strings in the middle of the park. Eventually vale started to come into the game and went close with a roisin Collins effort that was well saved.

Vale won a free kick on the edge of the box. Chloe Lawlor rattled the crossbar and Sarah devine was on hand to mop up the rebound, putting vale 1 up after 16 minutes.

The rest of the 1st half was very even and ended 1 nil to vale.

Vale started the 2nd half strongly and with 47 minutes gone on the clock, Sarah devine got her 2nd of the match with a close range effort ,doubling vale’s lead.

This seemed to wake Burrin up and they started to dominate possession resulting in a goal for Mia Nolan halfway through the 2nd half.

Straight from the kick off vale made it 3-1 with a nice goal from Kate Burke, vale’s top scorer.

In true Burrin fashion they piled more pressure on the vale defence and the excellent Leah Mannion reduced the deficit to 1 goal with 10 minutes left.

Both teams had more chances but the game finished 3-2 to vale.

It was an excellent game and both teams should be very proud.

Best for Burrin Celtic included Isabel cronnin, Eimear Nolan and India mernagh.

Best for vale were Sarah devine, Chloe Lawlor and Zoe clarke.

Burrin Celtic AFC 3 - 2 Clerihan

In the last 16 tie in the south East region of the SFAI trophy, Burrin came out on top after extra time. Both teams played some really good football and made it a very enjoyable match to watch. Clerihan scored their first against the run of play and defended well, forcing burrin to play the ball backwards a number of times. Burrin had enough chances to win this game by 5 goals but just didn’t go their way in the first half after hitting the post a few times, and the Clerihan keeper having a brilliant game. Clerihan scored their second just before half time and started to look more comfortable. Burrin came out a different team in the second half as super sub Tadhg Campbell scoring twice to bring the game to extra time. Extra time was completely dominated from the home side. Ryan Abbey looked like he was going to score a worldie from outside the box after connecting perfectly from a volley but it just going over the bar. The winner came from Bobby Finn after a scramble in the box and he slotted it home to progress Burrin.

Best for Burrin Celtic we’re Colm Donald, Daire Nolan, Robbie Kelliher and Glen Cantwell.
