Weekend Review - 9th/10th November


Castlebar Celtic and Manulla joined Westport United in the draw for Round 5 of the FAI Junior Cup with wins over Kiltimagh/Knock United and Ballyheane this weekend

FAI Junior Cup 4th Round

Manulla squeezed past the challenge of Ballyheane on Saturday as they progressed to the open draw with a 1-0 win in Carramore. The only goal of the game arrived just before half-time as Sean Morrissey rose highest at the back post to head home a corner from Andrew Shally.

On Sunday a ruthless Castlebar Celtic put eleven goals past Kiltimagh/Knock United as Jordan Loftus was once again the star of the show for Michael McNicholas side. Loftus scored six while the other goals came from Jason Hunt (2), Ruairi Nevin, Johnnie Cocozza and Neil Douglas. Kiltimagh/Knock did manage to score twice but it is the Super League Champions that will represent Mayo in the open draw along with Westport United and Manulla.

The final game of the season in the Elverys Sports Super League took place in United Park on Sunday morning as Westport United hosted Ballina Town in a rearranged game. It was a game full of plenty of goals as Mick Duffy’s side won by the odd goal in seven. Mikey O’Brien gave Westport the lead from 20 yards but David O’Mahoney had the away side level within five minutes. Duane Helly then scored a brilliant goal as he chipped Gary Cunningham from the edge of the area following a quick counter attack involving O’Mahoney and Jamie Cawley. Peter Corcoran the levelled before the break but two goals from Dylan Edwards within the space of seven minutes early in the second had Ballina well in control. With twenty minutes to go Mikey O’Brien got his second of the day but it wasn’t enough and Ballina picked up the final three points on offer this season.

In the Connacht Cup Swinford and Crossmolina progressed to Round 3 while Killala will go into the Shield after a defeat away to Kilshanvey. Swinford got the better of fellow Mayo League side Fahy Rovers thanks to a goal from Johnny Burke and an own goal from a Fahy defender while Darren Creaby hit the lone reply for the home side.
