Aileach FC                              2

This St.Patricks day fixture was reversed to Aileach and played in very damp conditions. The game started fairly evenly and it was 15 minutes before the first chance of note arrived. The ball broke to Clonmany full back Brendan Doherty at the  edge of the box and his snap shot just went the wrong side of Roulstones right hand post. On the half hour mark Anthony Doherty got clear down the right and pulled the ball back for the inrushing Stephen McKendry whose  first time effort from twelve yards was somehow diverted over the bar by a Clonmany foot with Harkin beaten.Aileach began the second half well and on 50 minutess Jordan McGeedy turned smartly inside the box and his well placed shot from fourteen yards brought a smart save from Harkin low to his right. On the hour a Darren McMonagle free kick deceived everybody and bounced off the top of the bar on its way over. Clonmany had a good spell of posession after this and on 70 minutes Jason Coyle got clear of the Aileach defence but his attempted lob from distance  fell short into Roulstone’s arms. With 10 minutes remaining Aileach grabbed the lead when Dermot Doherty was released in the inside right position and he fired a shot across Harkin and into the bottom right hand corner from ten yards. Clonmany had to commit players forward in search of an equaliser and on the break substitute Stephen Doherty was denied by Harkin but from the resulting corner James Wallace placed a fine shot with the outside of his right foot into the bottom right hand corner to seal the win.

Moville Celtic               4

Redcastle United         0

Moville got off to a dream start on 3 minutes when a Conor Doherty free was headed high past Michael McCole by Norbert Indyka. Redcastle almost equalised when Sean McGuinness parried a James Curran free and with two attackers ready to pounce McGuinness recover to flip the ball clear. Moville then increased their lead before the break after Doherty split the Redcastle defence with a superb pass for Michael McNaught to race clear and slot low under the advancing McCole. Redcastle had the first chance of the second period when Brendan Murphy saw his effort well tipped around the post by  McGuinness. But Moville took over then and Finn McLaughlin rattled the bar from a corner before a long range Jack Keys effort also crashed off the bar. The pressure told on 66minutes when McNaught broke clear on the right and his low cross deflected off a defender to make it three nil. James Gillen then had an effort cleared off the line before the home side completed the scoring on the stroke of full time when McLaughlin rounded McCole and pulled the ball back for Charlie Gill to sweep the ball home.

QPS  Res                       0

This was a no contest from the start as Moville completely dominated an under strength point reserves side. They led by seven goals to nil at the break with Declan McGuinness and Charlie Gill getting two each, Conor Doherty, Michael McNaught and Finn McLaughlin all on the mark. The best of the goals in the first half was  after a clearance fell to Gill on the edge of the area and he sidefooted home through a crowd of players. The home side eased off after the break and Gill completed his hat trick with a brilliant “hitch” kick according to reporter Lawrence Harkin. Running forward Gill met a Jack keys cross on the run to volley to the net.An own goal and a Jack Keys strike completed the misery for the visitors.

In a tightly contested game the visitors opened the scoring on 11 minutes after John McDermott beat a defender on the left and fired high past Ronan Lafferty from the edge of the area.

Cockhill  Res                 3

Aileach Youths             1

Cockhill started the brighter of the two side early on pushing Aileach back but without really testing Dylan Clarke. Aileach gradually came in to the game and tested Gary Robinson in the Cockhill net with a 25 yard shot from Liam Collins but was comfortably saved the Cockhill keeper. Cockhill responded to the Aileach pressure when young Tristan Donaghy turned well from a good early ball forward by Jude Mullan, Tristan turned his man well but was unlucky with the effort on goal from the edge of the area, Dylan Clarke making the save.

Despite the bright start from Cockhill they found themselves a goal down on the half hour mark when Liam Collins found the target, crashing a 25 yard shot in of the far post past Gary Robinson who could do little to stop a fine effort. The lead didn’t last long as Cockhill fought back to level matters with in a few minutes. Good work down the right by James Barber and Ryan Mallett forced a corner.  Keegan Hegarty delivered a great front post corner where

Ryan Mallett met it with a bullet  header in to the near top corner to

level the match up. Just before half time time Cockhill took a deserved lead, Eddie Cuffe found himself with a bit of space and time just outside the Aileach penalty box and looped a great curling effort in at the back post to make it two one to Cockhill. Cockhill started the second half on the front foot. Tristan Donaghy turned two

Aileach defenders inside out down the left with some great skill and

crossed it in to a dangerous area but Dylan Clarke did well to cut the

cross out. Keegan Hegarty was troubling Aileach down the left and as he drove forward the ball broke back to Ryan Duffy who put in a great early cross for Eddie Cuffe to head home for his second of the match and give Cockhill a two goal cushion.Cockhill almost made it 4 shortly after when great play in the middle between Ryan Duffy and Jude Mullan to create an opening for Tristan Donaghy who’s great run down the channel was found by Jude Mullan but Dylan Clarke

made a great stop and the feet of Tristan Donaghy to keep Aileach in it. Aileach pushed hard to find a goal and had some luck down their left hand side with good inter play between Shane McMonagle and Stephen O’Donnell causing the Cockhill defense some problems, breaking in to the Cockhill box but failing to get an effort in on goal.With Aileach pushing on they forward several free kicks late on but failed to trouble Gary Robinson in the Cockhill goal with both efforts not finding the target. Cockhill forced a few late half chances with Jude Mullan and Patrick McLaughlin having their shots block by the  Aileach defence .

Dunree replied with Neil Moran seeing a low effort well saved by Mason before Masson saved again from Stephen McLaughlin. Carn added a third when Cooke raced onto a long ball to round the keeper and slot home.He completed his hat trick with a superb finish to the top corner from ten yards
