Vale Wanderers AFC 0 - 1 Nurney Villa AFC

Vale and Nurney villa’s girls played out a tough match in good condition in Leighlinbridge. It was a very tight 1st Half with Nurney putting on the pressure early on but both teams were limited to shots on goal. Vale starting to string a few chances together and when Sarah devine was clean through she was fouled in the box and a penalty was given.

The resulting Penalty was superbly saved by Zara Farrell in the Nurney goal

Half time 0-0

The second half started slowly with vale looking tired but they came back into the half and Alice Hickey was clean through but had strayed offside.

Then with 10 minutes left Nurney broke through the vale defence and Sarah murphy slotted home to give Nurney the lead.

Vale piled on the pressure and nearly scored from a well taken corner which broke to Zoe Clarke and somehow her shot was cleared off the line. Zara Farrell also pulled off a shot that look destined to cross the line.

Injuries started to tell for vale and eventually Nurney held out for the win.

Well done to Nurney especially Sarah Murphy, Zara Farrell and Mia craddock who put in great work

Commiserations for vale who tried really hard especially emma Delacy, roisin Collins and Sarah devine.

Nurney Villa AFC 2 - 2 St Joseph's AFC
Nurney u13s recent run of good results stuttered a little as visitors St Joseph's took a well earned draw in this local Derby. It certainly was a game of 2 halves with thr home side dominating for long spells in the first half and deservedly took an early lead through top striker Ben Kelly. Kelly was on target again soon after after good play by Adam Jeffares. A 2 goal lead did not flatter them and further good chances were not converted by Kelly, Eoghan Murphy and Liam Murphy. So at halftime it was 2 0. A jigged St Joseph's stormed I to thr 2nd half and begin to boss the midfield area and niall Egan was played in by Nathan Walsh midway through and duly converted with a nice finish. Nurney relied on breakaway attacks but couldn't hold possession in the Joseph's half for long. The visitors presure finally told when paudie breen finished from close range with a nice flick. Alex mcgrath was continuing to impress for the visitors but the last chance of the game fell to the dangerous Kelly but his deft header was brilliantly pushed away by the Joseph's keeper Evan farrell. A well earned and shared point for both.

It was clear and calm on the Plots this morning when Hanover Harps welcomed Parkville Utd. The home side started the better and applied lots of early pressure.

Harps doubled their lead moments later when Masfie Islam found Shay O Grady who made it 2. Midway through the half a through ball from David Dutu was latched onto by Jukabiec who made no mistake. The rest of the half was much of the same with Hanover pressing forward. Before half time, Howard was on hand from a Dutu corner to bury a half chance and made it 4-0 at the break.

For the second half Hanover rung the changes and lost their rhythm a bit. Parkville began to find a footing and started to break the home team's line and grabbed a goal from the spot with the penalty cooly slotted in by Kai Quinn. As the game progressed it became an end-to-end battle with both team's going close. Andrian Robu missing several one on one's before eventually getting the goal his efforts deserved. But the visitors weren't done and kept searching for a second goal that came when a fumble by the keeper was pounced on by Lorcan Cleary. The game finished Hanover 5-2 Parkville Utd.

Best for Hanover were: Nathaniel Jukabiec, James (J.P.) O Connor, and Cian Howard.

6mins into second half however, New Oak got their deserved 2nd and it was a beautiful ball over the top from Cormac Lowry to Keelan Brennan whose first time shot found the bottom corner. It was tit for tat in midfield after that until 29mins in, a cross from Conor Dooley found Ruarai Delaney in a great goal scoring position but the shot was saved only for it to fall to the onrushing Daniel Custerson who couldn'tiss and made it 3-0, and this how it finished.

Burrin Celtic’s U13 girls teams had to put friendships aside for an hour as they both went in search of a league win at The Valley. The first half was a closely fought contest with both defences well on top. The pink teams back three of Aoife Bergin, Katie Hourihane and Isabelle Finnegan were more and more comfortable as the half progressed, making it difficult for their opposition to get any clear chances. Likewise, Kate Kearns and Caoimhe Dempsey seemed unbeatable at the centre of the yellow teams defence. The quality of passing in midfield and attacking play by both sides was excellent, giving both defences plenty to do, but there was no way through to goal. The best chance of the half fell to Eimear Bolger close to half time, but her shot hit the bottom of the post and when the rebound fell to Sophia Slattery, her shot was well saved by Abby Keppel in goal. It was 0-0 at half time. Early in the second half Bonnie Brennan and Kate Gorman had chances to put the yellow team in front only to find their shots saved by Charlotte Lalor who was having a solid game between the posts for the pink team. The game looked destined for a draw when the pink team won a free kick on the edge of the box with 10 minutes remaining. An in-swinging ball fell to the feet of Lucy Malone who reacted well and made no mistake with her finish. Minutes later the pink team were on the attack again and Isabelle Finnegan’s second shot from close range was unstoppable, after her first was superbly saved by Caoimhe Dempsey. The yellow team had plenty of possession in the latter stages but couldn’t find a way back into the game and the pink team held out for a 2-0 win. In reality, friendships between the girls was evident throughout, and this most sporting game was enjoyed by all present on and off the pitch.
