Cahir Park 5 – 2 Bansha Celtic
One of Ireland’s oldest clubs Cahir Park showed that there was life in the old dog yet by bouncing back from a poor league performance last weekend, to easily dispatch first division high flyers Bansha Celtic in the Munster Junior Cup on Sunday last.
Cahir Park opened the scoring in the fifth minute through Eamon Wootten, but Bansha Celtic were more than holding their own, and equalised through Brendan McGrath 20 minutes later.
However, the scoreline didn’t stay this way for long, as Wootten put the home side back in front on the half hour and they took this slim lead to the break.
Five minutes into the second half, Cahir Park increased the lead to two goals as Jonas Kerr got the first of a brace of goals which were separated by a Bansha goal from Ned Lowry. Wootten though had the last major influence on the game, when he completed his hat trick with five minutes remaining to give the home side a comfortable win in the end.
Galbally United 1 – 3 Glengoole United
Newly promoted Glengoole United carried on some fine form of late on the road in Galbally on Sunday, dispatching the home side in a rather one sided affair in front of a small but vocal crowd.
After a dull opening 40 minutes, Glengoole United took the lead with a goal by Harry Hayes, and then hit Galbally with a sucker punch scoring right on the stroke of half time with a second goal from Michael Heffernan.
Glengoole then put the game beyond the home team on the hour mark when Stuart Hanrahan made it three goals to nil, and a late goal by Patrick O’Donnell proved to be little more than a consolation score as they made their exit from the competition.
