Satellite Taxis 3 Jay Bazz 2

SATELLITE TAXIS were pushed all the way by First Division Jay Bazz before advancing to their fourth Sports Gear Direct Shield final in five years.

A Red Geaney corner led to Damien O’Mahony glancing in the opener for Satellite before a Breff McCarthy penalty was brilliantly saved by Mark Sheedy only for Geaney to convert the rebound and send Taxis in two up at half-time.

However, a determined Jay Bazz got back in the tie through Sam Heffernan’s sublime lob before Darren McGrath cracked in a bullet header to square up the tie. With penalties imminent, O’Mahony swung the tie Taxis’ way and there was still time for Sheedy to save another O’Mahony penalty before referee Jim Hennessy brought an end to proceedings.

Both OBS and District were searching for their second win at Ballea Park last Friday night.

Tony O’Leary rattled the crossbar for Celtic from a free-kick with five minutes remaining.

Co Council 5 VIP Barbers 0

Council’s rise up the table continued with a comfortable win over VIP Barbers . Kieran O’Regan, Szymon Glowczak and Robert Susek eased the hosts into a three-goal half-time lead before Susek went on to register a hat-trick with two further second-half goals.

Top-scorer Mario Fosca didn’t feature in the goals but impressed along with Ian Scott and Kevin Murphy.

Centenary FAI Junior Cup second round:

UCC 4 Doolan’s Cow 1

Both Business League teams Doolan’s Cow and UCC Utd bowed out while playing Cork AUL opposition, alongside each other, at the Farm last Sunday morning.

Doolan’s went close on a couple of occasions in the first-half but fell behind five minutes into the second 45 when Michael Connolly put the hosts in front.
