St Fiacc's AFC v Ballingarry
Girls u14 cup 28/01 13:00
St Fiacc's AFC 2 - 1 Ballingarry

St Fiaccs 2 Ballingarry 1

A slow start saw St Fiaccs fall behind early to a strong Ballingarry team who travelled up from Limerick. St Fiaccs were slow to clear their backline and were punished when the ball spilled out and was knocked in the back of the net.

It didnt take St Fiaccs long to get their heads back on the game though and they played some great soccer with Ali O Connor and Jasmine Doyle running the midfield. Halftime 0 1

St Fiaccs won a free kick early in the second half and Katelyn Moran struck a great shot which was parried by the keeper but the ever reliable Ashlee Smith was on hand to poke home the equaliser. Ballingarry came back into the game and without Nicole Osborne in the Fiaccs goals, could have found themselves behind after Ballingarry created 3 good chances. Fiaccs kept the pressure on Ballingarry after this and scored a breakaway goal following some great counter attacking play involving Ciara Rooney, Leah Nelson and Ali O Connor to give Fiaccs a 2 1 win and a place in the last 16 in the SFAI competition. Best for St Fiaccs were Katelyn Moran, Jasmine Doyle and Nicole Osborne.

Last Years Cup Winners Vs Last Years League Winners
U14 Girls 21/01 11:15
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!

Nurney Villa AFC v St Fiacc's AFC
Nurney and St. Fiacc's share the spoils
U16 Girls 14/01 11:15
Nurney Villa AFC 1 - 1 St Fiacc's AFC

An entertaining, hard fought game was played by both teams in very windy conditions and a good playing surface.

Nurney played with the strong wind in the first half, though Fiacc’s attacked from the kick-off, and won some corners. Nurney defended strongly and started to get a foothold in the game, putting Fiacc’s under some pressure. After some great work down the right, Mai Cradock burst into the St. Fiacc’s box and put in a dangerous low cross that Kelly Tobin was quick to latch onto, finishing first-time into the corner with aplomb.

Fiacc’s to their credit performed well against the wind, with Mia Brannigan in midfield and Abbey O’Shea putting in some great work. Ella Matthews was also threatening and the Nurney defence had to be vigilant, but was well marshalled by Roisin Murphy. The lively Kelly Tobin was proving a real threat up front for Nurney, and created some half chances, though at the interval, Nurney were one up.

The second half started at a quick pace, with a real midfield battle going on, and neither side willing to give an inch. Both sides were showing good determination and commitment. At the 65 minute mark, the ball made its way to Hannah Matthews, 20 yards from goal, and she shot nicely just inside the far past to level the scores.

The pace of the game increased as both sides battled to find a winner, with both sides having threatening counter-attacks, but no further goals resulted.

Best for Nurney were Eve Kearney, Katie Cowman and Doireann O’Toole.

Best for St. Fiacc’s were Mia Brannigan, Abbey O’Shea and Hannah Matthews.

U14 Girls 07/01 12:45
Nurney Villa AFC 0 - 3 St Fiacc's AFC
Nurney Villa were unfortunate to lose all 3 points in this morning's encounter in Nurney. The first half was a very close affair and despite a few chances neither team could make a breakthrough. Half time saw the teams change ends at nil all. The second half started in a similar fashion. Midway through the second half the visitors opened the scoring which was quickly followed by a second. Nurney battled on and despite some excellent play they couldn't find the net. A third St. Fiacc's goal near the end finished the scoring. The final scoreline was probably an unfair reflection on what was a very even game. Best for Nurney were Elisa Nolan, Natalia Deka, Alice Carroll along with goalkeeper Zara Farrell.

St Fiaccs used the full size of their squad for this fixture with some girls rested for an academy game but still came out on top in this tight game against a determined Ballymurphy. St Fiaccs started the best with Ashlee Smith and Ella Matthews going close following great work from Leah Nelson on both occasions but were denied by Aine Doyle in the Ballymurphy goal. It wasnt till the 23rd minute that Fiaccs eventually broke the deadlock following a great pass in the Fiaccs midfield to play in Ashlee Smith who rounded the keeper to score.

5 minutes later Ballymurphy were awarded a penalty which Mia O Meill converted.

St Fiaccs again took hold of the game and right on halftime went back in front through Ashlee Smith with her second of the game.

Ballymurphy started the second half slightly quicker and Grainne Grennan equalised deservedly. After this St Fiaccs started applying pressure to the Ballymurphy goal and created some great chances but just couldn't find the back of the net until Abbey O Shea who was just after coming on the field scored to give St Fiaccs the lead for the third time.

As Ballymurphy pushed forward again Hanna Kerfah found herself in space to seal the game for the home side.

Orla Keating, Leah Cummins Nelson and Ashlee Smith stood out for St Fiaccs while

Clonmel 1 - 5 St Fiacc's AFC

Clonmel 1 St Fiaccs 5

St Fiaccs u14 girls continued their good run in this SFAI competition with a convincing result against Clonmel. St Fiaccs took the lead against the run of play and against a very strong wind when Hannah Matthews sent a rocket of a shot into the net from a corner kick. Clonmel battled back and equalised a few minutes later. St Fiaccs battled well for the remainder of the half and went in level.

With the wind to help Fiaccs took control of the game when Katelyn Moran sent a shot from well outside the box to the back of the net. Clonmel tried to fight back but a brilliant counter attack saw Ashlee Smith increase the lead after some excellent work from Ali O Connor and Leah Cummins Nelson which saw the ball worked out from Fiaccs backline.

Hanna Kerfah added to the scoreline with another shot from outside the area and Ashlee Smith completed the scoring with her second of the game.

Again Clonmel battled back and only for 2 brilliant saves from Nicole Osborne the scoreline could have been closer.

Best for St Fiaccs were Leah Cummins Nelson, Hannah Matthews and Jasmine Doyle.
