Hanover scored a second when a cross by Ryan Fitzgerald was finished by Roland Sanni. Hanover went 3 up when a strike by Senan Ryan from the edge of the box flew to the net. Another strike from the edge of box, this time by Jamilio El Salvador who found the top corner put Hanover 4 up. St Joseph's were working hard in defence and were restricted  to a couple of half chances on the break.  Hanover went 5 up when a great ball over the top by James Horohan was finished well by Joel Divine. Roland Sanni then added another 2 goals , one a fine volley from a Joel Divine cross, the other a strong header from a Jamie Coakley corner. Senan Ryan then put Hanover 8-0 to the good when his speculative long range effort deceived the heavily worked Joseph's keeper. St Joseph's who battled to the end then scored a goal of their own when Sean Briain ran on to a long clearance and found the corner of the net with a fine finish.

Best for St Joseph's were Sean Briain, Lorcan Kelly and Joe Birmingham

Result 0-2

St Fiaccs came out to Ballon and took the game to the home team in the first half but the Burrin Celtic defense held well with Hannah Hutton pulling off a few great saves.

The breakthrough finally happened when a long hopeful ball slipped through the hands of the Burrin Keeper and Fiaccs went 1 up.

Burrin were unlucky not have 1 back only for the off side rule disallowed the goal on the narrowest of margins. Burrin pushed up for the equalizer and got caught on a great counter attack and Fiaccs added a second minutes from the end.

Scorers for St Fiaccs were Katelyn Moran & Leah Cummins

with Hannah Mathews and Carly O Leary also playing we’ll.

Dungarvan Utd. AFC A v Killeshin AFC
Horendous weather conditions in Dungarvan
05/10 15:00
Dungarvan Utd. AFC A 4 - 1 Killeshin AFC

Todays match was played in terrible wet and windy conditions. Killeshin started the better of the teams and had several early chances with Mackenzie Mc Ivor and Eoin Cawley crossing well on both wings into their forwards James Ingram and Darragh Loughman . Dungarvan settled into the game and had a few long range shots but Killeshin goal keeper Michael Gaffney was on hand to save. Killeshin took the lead in the 20th min when after a period of sustained pressure, Tommy Huttons 30 yard shot found the back of the Dungarvan net. Killeshin where now well on top and playing all the football. A lovely cross from Alex Mc Donagh put James Ingram in a great position to put Killeshin two ahead but the Dungarvan keeper just got his finger tips to James shot.

Just before the half time break, Killeshin got a sucker punch when against the run of play a speculative Dungarvan cross into the Killeshin box saw a wet ball ping pong around in the box and land perfectly for a Dungarvan two yard poke in. The half time whistle blew and Killeshin were disappointed and Dungarvan had their tails up.

Dungarvan came out the better of the two teams. They got a free kick in a scorable position on the Killeshin goal. The free kick was taken and scored with the Killeshin goal keeper unsited with the driving rain in the 50th min. Things went from bad to worse when a few minutes later in the 53rd min a certain offside was not called and Dungarvan had their third goal. Killeshin did not give up and had a few more chances to get back into the game with nice runs from James Murphy. Dungarvan put their icing on the cake with a fourth goal in the 68th min. A good win for Dungarvan but this game was a lot closer than the score line suggests.

Best for Killeshin: Darragh Byrne, Mackenzie Mc Ivor, Darragh Loughman, Eoin Dunne

St. Patrick’s Boys AFC lined out for their first league game of the season against Vale Wanderers AFC in what turned out to be atrocious weather conditions in the Meadows, Graiguecullen. Vale had already started their season on a winning note and were hoping for a repeat performance. They opened the scoring after about 10 minutes when a long throw into the St. Pats penalty area was slotted home. St. Pats regrouped quickly and put together a very solid first half overall. It was 1 nil at the break. The St. Pats team remained strong in the second half but Vale were deserved winners on the day adding 3 more goals to the scoreline.

Stoneyford 2 – St.Fiaccs 0

In terrible conditions this game started with both teams trying to pass the ball as much as possible. For the first 15 mins Stoneyford came out on top and played some lovely football. Fiaccs just couldn’t get to grips with Stoneyford’s midfield and it wasn’t long before Stoneyford were 1-0 up when a long range shot was saved by Orla Keating but the Stoneyford’s striker was at hand to tap it in and give them a deserved lead. Shortly after they made it 2-0 when Fiaccs didn’t clear their lines. It wasn’t until Fiaccs went 2-0 down did they start to play. With Zak Hernan and JAN Flejszar starting to find their way in midfield Fiaccs had a number of attacks broke down by a well-organized Stoneyford defense. Fiaccs were now on top and finished the first half the stronger of the two.

The second half saw Fiaccs pile on more pressure but the Stoneyford defense was able to withstand anything Fiaccs had to offer. Credit must go to both teams for trying to play football in absolute terrible conditions. The two teams played the game in great spirits and were two very evenly matched teams with Stoneyford edging it in on the day with a final score of 2-0. The best of luck to Stoneyford going forward in the competition and the refreshments after was much appreciated on a terrible wet day.

Best for Fiaccs

Callum Murphy, Brian Keating & Corey Lawler Purcell.

Best for Stoneyford

Hanover Harps 1

Milltown United 0

Kyle Nolan's header just 10 minutes in proved to be the winner as Harps took the points on Saturday. Hanover dominated the game for long periods and hit the front early when Jack Dunne's pin point cross was headed home at the back post by Nolan. Harps almost had a second shortly afterwards but Albert Ventosa's header from a Cillian McGrath corner was brilliantly tipped onto the crossbar by Milltown keeper Kyle Foley. Foley denied Jack Dunne before half time as he raced off his line to save at the striker's feet. The second half was more of the same, Hanover creating chances only to be denied by man of the match Foley. The keeper saved well from Dylan Doyle before diving full stretch to tip Jack Murphy's effort around the post midway through the half. With just the one goal in it there was always a chance for the visitors to catch Harps on the break but a back line superbly led by Cillian McGrath rarely looked in trouble as Harps claimed the win. Best for Hanover were Jack Murphy, Cillian McGrath and Pablo Sanz
