Munster Senior Colleges' Football

Munster Senior Colleges' Football

St Augustine’s:              3 -08

Causeway C.S. Kerry:  1 -07

Mallow was the venue for a second victory within seven days for our senior footballers, who had to work hard to see off a skilful Kerry side.  A gale force wind made conditions difficult for both teams but the Friary took full advantage in the first half notching up 3 -05 to their opponents 0 – 04.  The first goal was a somewhat fortunate effort from hard working centre forward Thomas Conway, Paul Tobin followed up with an opportunist strike and Dylan Guiry was on the end of a fine team move to hammer home the third.  The second half required a disciplined defensive effort and the experienced trio of Jack Mullaney, Ciaran O’Neill and Ross Browne led by example, each in turn thwarting many a Causeway attack.  O’Neill in particular, giving his usual all action display, defended stoutly and counter-attacked at every opportunity.  Overall then, this was a positive display and if the score taking shows improvement then this team could well make an impact when the championship quarter finals are staged in January.
K. Dwane (Ballinacourty), C. McCarthy (Ballinacourty), E. Conway (Ardmore), D. McGuckian (Stradbally), C. O’Neill (Brickey Rangers), J. Mullaney (Stradbally) Capt, R. Browne (Colligan Emmets) 0-1, C. Prunty (Ballinacourty), J. Allen (Dungarvan) 0 -2, J. Elstead (Ballinacourty), T. Conway (Ardmore) 1 -0, D. Guiry (NIre) 1 -01, E. Kiely (Ballinacourty) 0 – 02, D. Looby (Ballinacourty) 0 – 02,  P. Tobin (Stradbally) 1 -0, Subs Used: M. Sweeney (Stradbally) for Elstead, S. Keating (Ardmore) for Allen
No such luck for our Under 15⅟₂ side who had to give best to a physically stronger CBS side in the local championship at windswept Fraher Field.  This youthful team came up short on this occasion but many of the panel still have the U.14 and U.16⅟₂ championships to look forward to.

Good Week for Friary Hurlers & Footballers

U15 ½ Hurling

The Friary Under15½ had a comprehensive win over St Declan's Kilmacthomas in the first round of the County Championship last week. It was a good team display throughout with Séamus Ryan his usual safe self in goal and he was well protected by his defence, in particular Daragh McGrath, Tony Collins, James Beresford. Ryan O'Neill and Mick Devine worked tirelessly at midfield and upfront Meldon O'Dwyer, Neil Montgomery and Pa Power all took some nice scores. We now play St Paul's in the next round.  The College footballers had a successful week, with victories in the Waterford Colleges Championship for the U.15 ½ side, followed by a similar result for the Seniors in a second round Munster Championship tie which was also a first defence of our All-Ireland title. ST. AUGUSTINES 7 - 10   ST. DECLANS, KILMACTHOMAS 2 - 06

The first half was a very close affair, but a much improved second period ensured a comprehensive victory in the end.  A feature of the game was the outstanding play of corner forward Pa Power who finished with a personal tally of 2 – 04 and had a hand in many other scores.  Remarkably, Mick Devine contributed three goals from mid-field.

Team: A. Beresford (Ballinacourty), M.Kiely (An Ghaeltacht), T. Collins (Ballinacourty), J. Dunford (St. Pats), J. Beresford (Ballinacourty), D. McGrath (Ballinacourty) Capt, C. Curran (Brickey Rangers), R. O’Neill (Brickey Rangers) 0 -1, M. Devine (Dungarvan) 3 – 0, M. Boland (Dungarvan) 1 – 1, S. Murphy-Nix (St. Pats) 1 – 0, T. Looby (Ballinacourty) 0 – 3, P. Power (Ballinacourty) 2 – 04,  J. O’Riordan (Ballinacourty) 0 -1, J. Whyte, (Kilrossanty)

Subs Used: C. Fagan (Ballinacourty) for M. Kiely, M. O’Riordan (Ballinacourty) for T. Looby, B. Flynn (Ballinacourty) for J. Whyte, G. Hallinan (Ballinacourty) for J. Dunford.



ST AUGUSTINES 2 – 10    BANTRY C.S.  0 – 11

This delayed second round tie was played at Ballincollig and proved to be a tough and testing encounter.  The Bantry side were strong and skilful and had the benefit of a twice played preliminary tie.  The Friary boys, though lacking match sharpness, showed admirable grit and determination to get over the line.  Goals from the Nire’s Dylan Guiry and Ballinacourty’s David Looby proved vital and a brace of late points from the excellent Conor Prunty were decisive.  The most encouraging aspect of the overall team performance was the contribution of some of the newer members of the panel.  Conor McCarthy, Darren McGuckian, Eoin Conway, John Elstead and Paul Tobin all had their moments and will certainly benefit from the experience.

Team: K. Dwane (Ballinacourty), C.McCarthy (Ballinacourty), E. Conway (Ardmore) D. McGuckian (Stradbally), C. O’Neill (Brickey Rangers), J. Mullaney (Stradbally), R. Browne (Colligan Emmets)  Capt,  C.Prunty (Ballinacourty) 0 – 3, J. Allen (Dungarvan) 0 – 1, J. Elstead (Ballinacourty), T. Conway (Ardmore), D. Guiry (Nire) 1 – 0 ,P. Tobin (Stradbally) D. Looby (Ballinacourty) 1 – 05, E Kiely (Ballinacourty)

Subs Used: N. Donovan (Modeligo) for E. Conway, M. Sweeney (Stradbally) 0-1 for P. Tobin

Senior Ladies Football Team cruise through to Munster Final

St Augustine's College                       2-11  Scoil Mhuire Ennistymon                   0-0

St Augustine’s travelled to Bansha to take on Ennistymon of Clare in the Senior B Munster semi final. The girls had an impressive display for the entire 60mins which ensured a convincing win for the west Waterford side. In the opening ten minutes Liz Devine had two points to her credit converting a close in free to open the score sheet and Shannon Dunford had added a point also. The play continued at a fast tempo throughout with the Friary girls dominating in all areas of the pitch. In the closing stages of the first half Molly Curran chipped in with her first of four points followed by a point from Kaeisha Tobin and a well slotted goal from Shannon Dunford. This left matters at 1-5 to 0-0 at the turnaround.
