Ballynacargy – Castletown Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 08:30

Dessie received an award for Westmeath footballer of the year for 2015 after his Man of the Match performance against Meath in the Leinster Championship.[3]On 17 March 2012, they played in their first All-Ireland Senior Club Football Championship final against Crossmaglen Rangers at Croke Park.[4][5][6] The match finished in a draw on a 1-12 to 0-15 scoreline.[7][8] Crossmaglen went on to win the replay to claim their sixth title. They won their first Westmeath senior football championship in 2001, and their first Leinster club football title in 2011 after a last-minute free from second-half substitute Conor Cosgrove.[1]They are the first Westmeath club to win the title.[2]In 2004, Dessie Dolan was the first player from the club to be awarded an All Star. The club was founded in 1981 after GAA fans in the area saw the need for a second club in Athlone to cater for the growing population of the town.

Subs used: Norman Maxwell, Eddie Quinlan, Ian Seery, Michael Maloney. Team: Christy Maloney, Pierce Corcoran, Enda McCann, Pat Heduan, Paul Maloney, Peter Heraty, Louis Ennis, Paul Seery, Peter Robinson, Ciaran Carey, Michael Ennis, Sean Robinson, Jarlath Mahon, Ger Linnane, Cathal Ennis. Ballinagore played out a hard earned draw with rivals Ballynacargy last Saturday evening in our second last group game in this years championship.

Having drawn our previous game against Ballynacargy we were not in contention for this years play-offs so there was little to play for apart from pride. We played neighbours Kilbeggan in our final championship group game last Saturday evening in Tyrrellspass. Subs used: Ian Seery, Martin Seery, Paul Maloney. Team on Saturday was: Christy Maloney, Pierce Corcoran, Enda McCann, Pat Heduan, Louis Ennis, Peter Heraty, Eddie Quinlan, Sean Robinson, Paul Seery, Shane Heraty, Michael Ennis, Ciaran Carey, Cathal Ennis, Ger Linnane, Jarlath Mahon. Kilbeggan levelled matters right from the restart but Ballinagore showed good resolve and went back in front soon after. A well taken goal by Michael Ennis left us in the driving seat for the remainder of the half and we went in one point to the good at the interval, 1-04 to 0-06. This continual pressure paid off when a long speculative kick towards goal broke behind two of our defenders and Kilbeggan were able to score the decisive goal to seal the win. There was little between the sides at this stage and further points were shared between us. Kilbeggan applied pressure on us for the remainder of the game and got back within a point of us with normal time running out. With less than ten minutes left on the clock, a long delivery was collected by Cathal Ennis and his attempted point ended up in the Kilbeggan net to put us a goal up. The game started in a lively fashion and we were first on the scoreboard with an early point.

The excitement was unbelievable throughout and at the end Sonna emerged winners on a scoreline of Sonna 4-8 to Milltown 3-10. The scene was set for a ding-dong final, which lived up to all expectations. This resulted in extra-time having to be played. At the full time whistle the sides were still locked at Sonna 4-2 Milltown 2-8. This left the final a repeat of the Comrtas final between the holders Milltown and Sonna. When the teams met in an earlier round they ended all square at 3-5 each. Our thanks to the referee Brian McCabe.

To be honest, Drinagh Rangers hasnt a fabulous record in the Beamish Cup or any of the cup West Cork competitions for that matter. We have always focussed on winning the league and been relatively successful at doing that over the years.

Every year youd be hoping to go on a run and our form has been excellent since Christmas. We have yet to lose a game in 2017. It was a gritty performance today in heavy conditions, an honest team effort and we needed it against a very good Riverside team.

The remaining few moments were frantic with both sides determined to go for outright victory but in the end the referee called time and we had to settle for a point. The ball broke among a number of players in the large square and Ger got his foot to it only to see it rebound off the crossbar but he made no mistake in the follow up and punched passed the goalkeeper much to the delight of all our supporters. We replied with two of our own, one being excellantly converted from the sideline from Eoin Millers left foot. However we need to improve if we are to advance in this group so it is important that all of the players that were available on Saturday evening should attend training on Wednesdays and Fridays at eight oclock. Rest of panel: Martin Seery, Shane Heraty, Declan Ward, Peter Deegan, Michael Maloney, Gerry Claffey, Mark Claffey, Norman Maxwell and Jimmy Marshall. Ballinagore then settled into the game and quickly got on the scoreboard with a pointed free from Eoin Miller and a good point from play from Cathal Ennis. The Ballymore keeper caught a lot of ball that dropped too short also. The second half didnt produce much in the line of scores but it more than made up for this with excitement and good end to end football. We knew we were going into this match without the services of Michael Ennis but a great turnout of players and the late availabilty of Peter Robinson and Ger Linnane gave the selectors plenty of options. We can do well in this competition but no without putting in the effort. Louis Ennis got possession on the half way line, he carried the ball forward and kicked goalward. Ballymore then had a pointed free. Another Ballymore point followed this and on their next attack they were awarded a penalty which they duly converted. However to our credit we never gave up and got our just rewards when Ger Linnane stepped up again with the all important goal that levelled the teams. Subs used : Peter Robinson and Paul Maloney. Ballinagore seemed to concentrate too hard trying to break down a strong defense and score goals rather than settling up and taking their points. Team on Saturday was : Vivian Doonan, Pierce Corcoran, Enda McCann, Pat Heduan, Louis Ennis, Peter Heraty, Eddie Quinlan, Eoin Miller, Paul Seery, Cathal Ennis, Sean Robinson, Ciaran Carey, Ger Linnane, Ian Seery, Marty Linnane. We quickly found out just how strong and blustery the elements were when their first attempted shot on target from outside the 45 deceived our goalkeeper and ended up in the net. Ballinagore played Ballymore in the first round of the championship last Saturday evening, 26th April, in Castletown-Geoghegan. Ballymore were using the wind well to their advantage and our backs had to handle a lot of long deliveries from out the field. The game ended in a share of the spoils for both teams after another epic struggle between two evenly matched sides. For a long time it looked as if Ballymore might hold out especially when we had a punched goal disallowed and there was controversy surrounding a pointed attempt from Cathal Ennis which looked over the bar but was flagged wide. We recovered from this and Sean Robinson had a good point from play and another Eoin Miller free left the half time score 2-03 to 0-06 in favour of Ballymore. This was a good enough performance by Ballinagore with some very good individual displays notably from Ciaran Carey, Pat Heduan and Pierce Corcoran. Ballymore won the toss and elected to play with the aid of the breeze in the first half.

Path to semi-final: Rangers received a bye in the opening round before travelling to Town Park for a meeting with fellow Premier Division club Bunratty United. A comfortable 6-0 victory was attained thanks to a Barry ODriscoll (H) hat-trick plus additional Barry ODriscoll (T), Jamie Walsh and Gearoid White strikes. ODriscoll (T)s lone effort was enough to see off Leeside 1-0 in a quarter-final victory at Inchigeela.

Dublin, Kildare Laois & Offaly included in new Storm Lorenzo warning from Met ireann

A five-goal thriller saw the Division 2 side knock their Premier Division opponents out of the Beamish Cup courtesy of Billy OBrien (penalty), Fergal Kelleher and Kevin ODonovan goals. Tied 1-1 at the end of both normal and extra time, Celtic required penalties to prolong their presence in the competition and triumphed 4-2 to setup a quarter-final against rivals Riverside Athletic.
