Peake Villa B 3 – 4 Suirside
A top of the table thriller by the Tower in Thurles left Suirside looking down on all others as they pushed on in their relentless drive towards immediate promotion from the Fourth Division.
The away side opened the scoring with a goal from Mike Hally but thereafter the home side dominated possession and got back on terms with a goal from Thomas Rykala. They then managed to undo all that good work by letting Suirside immediately retake the lead straight from the kick off as the switched off to let the division’s top striker Darren Sweeney add to his seasons tally and send his team to the break a goal up.
They extended that lead to two goals in the 49thminute as Sweeney fired home from a penalty, but Villa were back on terms with a second from Rykala and a goal by Davy McGuire in the 57th and 73rd minutes respectively. And then they were hit with a sucker punch, when four minutes later Suirside grabbed all three points with a well taken finish from David Recontre and with it three valuable points for the Ardfinnan side who must now fancy their chances of promotion in their first season.
Bansha Celtic 0 – 0 Tipperary Town
This was a typical local derby, hard and fair, and without a dirty tackle in the game. There were no goals either however, as the teams played out a stalemate that will serve neither any good in the chase for protion this year. There were few goal chances with defences well on top but Bansha Celtic’s second string did have the better of those chances hitting the post and forcing the Tipp Town keeper to pull off a couple of good saves.
Two Mile Borris B 3 – 2 Cullen Lattin
An entertaining game finished with all three points being claimed by the home team on Sunday. David Burke opened the scoring for Borris in the 20th minutes but Cullen Lattin equalised with a goal from David Duggan on the half hour.
In the second half Borris opened a two goal lead with a brace from Ciaran Maher and Jamie Carey, but Cullen Lattin threatened a comeback 20 minutes from time when Martin Morrissey cut the lead to a single goal. However the away side were reduced to ten men a few minutes later and with that all hope of getting something from this game disappeared.
