Nathan Carpenter equalised the game with a free into the bottom corner of the Carthages net.

Emeka was next up to score for Towerhill to put them ahead and a super performance from Hayden Delaney saw him score two goals in the game. Another goal from Carpenter saw Towerhill lead 5-1 at half time.

Division 1

Rosenallis 1 Gallen Utd 2

Rosenallis suffered a defeat this morning against Gallen Utd after a few missed chances made all the difference.

Gallen claimed the first goal of the game after unlucky efforts from Rosenallis’ Brian Fitzpatrick and Donnagh Calally.

A long ball from Gallen’s defence was controlled up front and clever play left Rosenallis trailing 1-0 at half time.

A strong start to the second half from Rosenallis got the side back on form after great play from Adam McDermott and Jack Friel. An assist from Brian Fitzpatrick saw a Donnagh Calally header rattle the Gallen net to level the game.

Gallen went a step better scoring their second goal of the game and despite being a man up with minutes to go, Rosenallis’ last chance to draw the game was to no avail.

ROSENALLIS: Paul Friel, Cian Thompson, Paddy Dunne, Mark Graham, Jack Friel, Damien Gorman, Paul Dunne, Adam McDermot, Brian Fitzpatrick, Niall Doolan, Donnagh Calally. Subs: Mark Gorman, Shane Farrell, Robert Stephenson.

Clonaslee Utd 0 Walsh Island Shamrocks 2

Clonaslee Utd fell short of a win this morning losing out to Walsh Island Shamrocks.

The first half was a tale of missed chances for the side with efforts coming from Sean Dunne and Niall Hogan.

A half time score of 0-0 left a lot to be desired heading into the second half and despite keeping most of the possession, a slip up in defence saw Walsh Island score their first goal from a long ball.

Clonaslee pushed hard to equalise the game but with two minutes to go, Walsh Island secured their winning points with their second goal.

CLONASLEE UTD: Seamus Rosney, Jack Owens, John Rigney, Bob Downey, PJ Fitzpatrick, Ger Reilly, Niall Hogan, Diarmuid Conroy, Shane McGovern, Sean Dunne, Gerry Carroll. Subs: Paddy White for Carroll (55 minutes), Mark Doherty for Conroy (77 minutes), Padraig Hogan for Dunne (85 minutes)

Division 2

O’Moore FC 1 Stradbally Town 3

It was a local derby this morning as Jody Dillon returned after helping his Irish Army team qualify for the Military World Cup.

O’Moores had one of the first few chances of the game but Stradbally cleared their lines each time.

Dillon converted a penalty for Stradbally just before half time to give his side a 1-0 lead heading into the second half.

Jack Langton converted Stradbally’s second goal before Damien Murphy scored the third and O’Moore’s looked as though they’d a lot of work to do.

O’Moore’s pulled Stradbally’s lead back to two goals after a late penalty but it was Stradbally who picked up the 3 winning points.

STRADBALLY: Wayne Comerford, Colin Beale, Conor Brady, Billy Murphy, Padraig Fitzpatrick, Jake Byrne, Damien Murphy, Ray Mullally, John Clancy, Brendan Lawlor, Jody Dillon. Subs: Conor Delaney for Byrne, Jack Langton for Lawlor, Richie Ryan for Clancy, Liam Knowles for Billy Murphy, Adam Murphy for Mullally.
