Balt­in­glass 1-9 Bray Em­mets 0-8

BALT­IN­GLASS HAD a good win over Bray Em­mets in Divi­sion 1 of the SFL at Em­met Park, Bray on Fri­day night. The Slaneysiders led from start to fin­ish and had a par­tic­u­larly good first half with Henry Sin­nott, Joey Kelly and County U-21 player Conor Fo­ley send­ing over good points. The half-time score was Balt­in­glass 0-5; Bray Em­mets 0-2.

The home side im­proved in the sec­ond half but while they cut back the deficit a lit­tle they could never get on par­ity. A goal by teenage sub Tony Kealy sealed vic­tory for Tommy Mur­phy's men. Both sides were very much un­der­strength for this match and were try­ing out young play­ers.

Bray Em­mets scor­ers: Ro­nan Cun­ning­ham (0-5); Aaron Mur­phy, Dave Far­rell and Ross McEne­spey (0-1 each).

Balt­in­glass: Ken Quirke; Rory Nolan, Ciaran Fo­ley, Ian Sheerin; Paul Flem­ing, Tommy Mur­phy, Mark Steins; Sean O'Brien, Kevin Mur­phy; Joey Kelly (0-3), Shane Wall, Tommy Cullen (0-1); Conor Fo­ley (0-3), Henry Sin­nott (03), Dave Faulkner. Sub: Tony Kealy (1-1).

How­ever they had lost mid­fielder Stephen Flana­gan on a red card and were down to 14 men for all of the sec­ond half.

Strat­ford-Grange­con lifted their game and got to within strik­ing dis­tance of the home side in the sec­ond half but found the gap too great.

Hol­ly­wood 1-10 Ti­na­hely 1-10

A POINT by Tony D'Arcy with just min­utes to go saved the day for Ti­na­hely in Divi­sion 1 of the SFL at Hol­ly­wood on Satur­day. A strong wind blow­ing straight into the road goal made this a match of two halves with the home side hav­ing the ad­van­tage in the first half.

Hol­ly­wood got off to a good start with points by the Burke brothers, Thomas and Eoin, but were rocked back on their heels in the sev­enth minute when Colm Kenny was brought down in the box and Alan Nolan blasted the net from the penalty.

That score gave Ti­na­hely the cush­ion they needed against the wind.

Hol­ly­wood pulled away in the sec­ond quar­ter to add some good points but their four-point lead at half-time - 0-8 to 1-1looked slim in the ex­treme .

While Tony D'Arcy got the first point of the sec­ond half it was Hol­ly­wood that stepped up their game.

Thomas Burke made a great run through the cen­tre and drew the free for Gar­rett Bell to point.

At the three quar­ter stage it was 1-10 to 14 but point by point Phillip Cullen's men hauled their way back to steal an away point at the death.

Hol­ly­wood: Ian Burke; Conor Cal­laghan, John Mooney, Kevin Glen­non; Keith Burke (0-1), Brian O'Shea, Keith Traynor; Eoin Burke (0-1), Peadar Traynor; Mikie Healy (1-0), To­mas Burke (0-3), Pat Glen­non; Keith Pep­pard (0-2), Gar­rett Bell (0-3), Brian Flynn. Subs: John D Burke and PJ O'Ke­effe.

Ti­na­hely: Stephen Nolan; Ray McG­lynn, Michael Byrne, Gavin Kenny; David Blake, Wil­lie Dil­lon (0-1), John Blake; David Dil­lon, Brian Walsh; Conor Kenny, Colm Kenny, Paddy O'Rourke; Ja­son Cushe (0-1), Alan Nolan (1-0), Tony D'Arcy (0-8).
