Over 35s collect another point in good performance

Tombrack United  0  Village FC  0

 

An exciting fast paced Over Thirty-Five match saw both sides play some good football, creating several chances but in the end, both had to settle for a point each after a scoreless draw. Village had been the first visitors to Ballyboy back in April when they had went away 5-1 winners and had beaten a depleted Tombrack 2-1 in Bagenalstown a few weeks later so our lads were eager to prove a point.

The game was evenly matched from the kick off but the home side did enjoy the better of the exchanges with Martin Doyle and Joe Goodall both shooting just wide while Barry Murphy saw his effort well saved. At the other end, Village did have chances but keeper Obi Kavanagh and defenders Willie Breen and Darren Quinn kept them at bay

The second half was equally as competitive with both keepers making good saves while Barry McDermott and Ray Murphy went closest for Tombrack while Stephen Jordan put in a strong performance while Fergus Turner worked tirelessly in midfield

Overall Tombrack were happy with a point and content with the improvement this season to date and look forward to two more league games and some big cup games in the coming weeks

 

Over Thirty Fives get historic first win

Carlow and District League Over Thirty Five Division Two

Tombrack United 6 Castlewarren Celtic 2

Our Over Thirty Five side finally made history this evening when they won their first game at this level when they overcame an understrength Castlewarren side, proving that having sufficient numbers to make changes at this level can be the difference between winning and losing

The home side got off to a flying start when Mick Kenny was sharpest in the penalty area and fired home from six yards, followed moments later by Willie Maher finding the net when he shot low to the net after Joe Goodall’s effort was well saved from the keeper. Despite enjoying the lions share of possession, there were no further goals before the break

The visitors started the second half well and gave themselves a lifeline when they scored a penalty five minutes after the restart but their revival was shortlived as Martin Doyle kept his head to pull away from two defenders and shoot past the keeper. Midway through the half, Joe Goodall found space on the right side of the area and shot to the corner of the net to move Tombrack 4-1 ahead. Castlewarren continued to press and were rewarded with a well taken breakaway goal but any hope of a revival was killed off when Aidan Allen calmly slotted the ball under the keeper and minutes from the end, Martin Armstrong lobbed the keeper from seventy yards to round off a well deserved victory

Schoolgirls Under Sixteen Premier Division

Tombrack United 2 Forth Celtic 2

Our Under Sixteen schoolgirls completed their season this evening with a dramatic 2-2 draw in Ballyboy that leaves them deadlocked at the top of the Premier Division with Forth Celtic but the Murrintown girls have one game left as they play away to St Leonards on Saturday needing just a point to clinch the title.

This game was a closely fought encounter with little to divide both sides as both teams worked hard to find the all important breakthrough that would give either side the advantage in the quest for the league title. Forth drew first blood when they took the lead twelve minutes with a looping long range effort that found the corner of the net but Tombrack battled hard and got back on level terms with a well struck right footed shot that sailed into the back of the net. The visitors went back in front with ten minutes to go and as the game moved into injury time, they must have thought they had done enough to secure the title until deep in injury time, Becky Connaughton got on the end of an Amy Tobin Cosgrave through ball to slam the ball to the back of the net and keep the girls title ambitions alive

The girls now have an anxious wait to see how the game in Dunmain pans out on Saturday morning where nothing less than a win from the home side will prevent Forth Celtic from being crowned champions. No matter what the outcome, our girls can look back on the season with pride as they are assured of runners up no matter what happens in St Leonards but there could still be a play off to face on Monday evening if all goes well

 

Some good performances as Over 35s lose out in Kilkenny

Carlow and District League Over 35 Division Two

Castlewarren Celtic  5  Tombrack United  0

Due to holidays and injuries, Tombrack were only able to muster Eleven players to travel to Evergreen's state of the art astro pitch to take on Castlewarren Celtic. It was the final quarter of the game before the home side eventually broke down the resilient visitors who battled hard in very warm conditions and were unlucky not to score just before the break when Jonathan Dempsey saw his shot blocked down. The home side took the lead midway through the first half with a well taken free kick and doubled that advantage just before half time.

Tombrack continued to press forward in the second half but could not break down a hard working Castlewarren defence and with fifteen minutes to go, the lack of numbers took its toll and Celtic knocked in another three for a flattering 5-0 win, leaving Tombrack still in search of their first win. All eleven players worked hard throughout the game with Willie Breen and David Kennedy combining well in defence while Willie Maher played well sitting in just behind midfield

A free weekend next Saturday to give our players an opportunity to support the club field day and then back to league action the week after that
