Goals fly in in Cup action


OVER the weekend, plenty of action was seen in league and cup ties. In the AOH Cup fourth round, Castle Celtic suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat from Kinsale A.

In the fifth round of the same competition, Glanworth bowed out after a 5-0 beating by Killumney Utd.

In the third round of the County Cup, Buttevant B saw off Milstreet Celtic in a game that finished 2-1.

In the Premier League, Coachford just got the better of Park Utd in a 2-1 win. In the same league, Macroom took on Gratten Utd and Macroom produced a fine display of football which saw the home side give Gratten Utd a 6-0 hammering.

If 6-0 is not enough goals, there was plenty more goals in the Premier A League when Greenwood took on Kanturk and the game produced eight goals. The game finished 6-2 to Greenwood.

In the AUL1, Buttevant went on the road to face Shandon Celtic and they will be happy they made the trip as they picked up the points away from home and still had an impressive 0-3 win.

Bweeng couldn't find an answer against Ballinhassig as they lost 1-4 in the AUL 3A. Ballinhassig will be delighted pick up these important points on the road against a talented Bweeng side. Lyndon Casey, Cork Road Celtic, tries to find a way out of defence during the County Cup clash with Strand United in Fermoy on Saturday last. The visitors ran out 2-0 winners.
