Wins for Emo, Crettyard and Mountmellick in latest 1B action as Courtwood got top of Division 2

There was a full round of games in the ACFL Division 1B division tonight while there was also a local derby in Division 2.

Here is a round-up of how they went.

Killeshin 1-12 Arles-Kilcruise 1-12

The points were shared in Killeshin tonight after the home side mounted an incredible comeback to snatch a draw.

Larry Wall’s men looked good for the win as they led by six points with five minutes to play.

Ross Munnelly carried his form from the Division 4 final into the game and ended it with 1-5, including a well taken penalty while David Conway also scored five points.

But Killeshin finished well. Eoin Lowry converted a penalty and then landed what turned out to be the equalizing score.

And incredibly Killeshin could have won the game but David Aston’s effort with the last kick of the game just shaved the post and went wide.

Rosenallis 1-10 Emo 2-18

Goals from Jack Owens and Evan Costello helped Emo to their second win in Division 1B as they proved much too strong for promoted side Rosenallis.

Emo were 1-7 to 0-6 up at half-time but with Paul Lawlor in impressive form at centre-forward – he scored five points – and David Gorman, Darren Strong, Finbar Crowley and Nigel Murphy all among their scorers they ran out comfortable winners.

Mountmellick 2-9 Arles-Killeen 0-8

Mountmellick joined Emo at the summit of the Division 1B thanks to a seven-point home win over Arles-Killeen.

Alan George’s men, who will play in the intermediate championship this year, lost out to Killeshin by a point in their previous game but had a good win over a Killeen side that were able to call on both Kingstons.

A red card to Dermot Julian midway through the opening half was a blow to Killeen and goals from Jason Caffrey and Darragh Hanlon were crucial for Mountmellick.

In the other game in Division 1B, Ballyroan-Abbey got their first win while inflicting a third straight defeat of the campaign on Crettyard.

Meanwhile, there was just one game in Division 2 where local rivals Annanough and Courtwood went head to head in Vicarstown.

And it was Eddit Kinsella’s charges who came out on top as they got the job done in the first half.

Son Alan was to the fore as Courtwood took a 3-9 to 0-5 lead by half time.

Annanough rallied somewhat in the second half as Damien McCaul landed five points and Elliott Scully converted a late penalty but they went down by 3-15 to 1-8 in the end.

It is a result that leaves Courtwood top of the Division after their third straight win.
