Advantage to Killusty after first leg of shield semi-final

Division 2 Shield semi-final

Division 2 Shield semi-final

Kilsheelan United 0 – 0 Killusty

The first leg of this semi-final was a typically cagey affair as neither side were prepared to put themselves out too much to try to gain an advantage lest they make the second leg too much of an uphill battle.

The home side did try to make most of the game, but came up against a very competent Killusty defence who made sure to give themselves every opportunity of advancing to the final when they take the tie back home in the second leg.

DIVISION 3 league

Clerihan 0 – 3 Vee Rovers

Vee Rovers moved into the promotion places with a very good away win against Clerihan on Sunday morning. After a good opening period, in which both teams had chances to break the deadlock, the first goal went to the visitors when a Sean Flynn free kick was sent directly to the net. The away team doubled the lead five minutes later as Marty Grant headed a corner kick past the despairing home keeper.

Clerihan came out all guns blazing in the second period, but for all their graft, they never really showed the guile required to get back into this game. And, as so often happens, when chasing down a lead, they were mugged on the break with ten minutes left in the game as Kevin Murray broke away to wrap up the three points.

Clonmel Celtic 0 – 1 Ballyneale

Ballyneale moved to the top of the Third Division with a narrow win against the Clonmel Celtic reserves in a tight game at a windswept Ferryhouse on Sunday morning. Both teams did their best in what was a tough game, and the only moment of magic came from Jamie Kennedy midway through the first half, to give Ballyneale all three points.
