Mixed day for Bree United teams

IT WAS a mixed day in the U-12 Cup for Bree United as their B team bowed out to a very strong Glen Celtic side and their A team progressed with a win away to Campile United.

Glen ran out 4-0 winners thanks to two goals from Noeleen Shanahan and one each from Amy Banville and Laura Burns.

Bree A, however, made it through to the semi-finals when they were also 4-0 winners, with Ciara McKelvie scoring twice to add to goals from Louise Butler and Kathryn Furlong.

The other cup tie between Killenagh and North End was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

In the Premier Division, Curracloe gave themselves a fighting chance of avoiding relegation when beating St. Joseph's 2-0 thanks to goals from Enya Byrne and Tara Smith.

Shelbourne most likely ensured safety in Division 1 when collecting three points in a 2-0 win at Fastnet Rovers with goals from Mairéad O'Shea and Talia Murphy.

On Friday night they played at home to Glen Celtic, with the visitors running out 6-1 winners to move well clear at the top of the division.

Tombrack United moved joint top of Division 2A with a hard-earned 1-0 win over bottom club Kilmore thanks to a Lisa Bolger goal, while Forth Celtic and St. Leonards played out a scoreless draw.

In Division 2B, Moyne Rangers and Duncannon played out a 2-2 draw with Lydia Power scoring twice for Duncannon and Siobhán Grant-Moorehead and Ciara Byrne on target for Moyne.

Courtown Hibs were too strong for All Blacks and ran out 3-0 winners and moved top of the table thanks to two goals from Caoimhe Roche and one from Sinéad Gaynor.

The one game in Division 3 saw St. Leonards B beat Duncannon B 1-0 to move three points clear courtesy of a Muireann Kehoe goal.
