LAST MINUTE GOAL SINKS BRIDES
Mattock Rangers won this tightly fought contest on Tuesday night with a controversial last gasp goal, which they scarcely deserved. This defeat, St. Brides fifth of the campaign has them now rooted to the bottom of the table. The first half was a relatively low scoring affair with the home side happier at half time as they went in at the break two points to the good. 0-6 to 0-4. However The Reds made a comeback and as the full time whistle approached the visitors were well in the driving seat. Leading by a point they were awarded a free kick close to goal. It was taken quickly and found the net. However it was disallowed as Referee, Johnathan Conlon, wanted to halt proceedings to verbally reprimand a Mattock player. The retaken free kick was pointed. However from the resulting play The Collon men had one last attack. St. Brides stoutly defended, but in the goalmouth scramble the ball was poked over the line by Brendan Leacy. The long whistle blast quickly followed with the scoreboard reading Mattock Rangers 1-09 St. Brides 0-11.

Glyde Rangers 1-8, St. Josephs 0-8.
Glyde Rangers came through this bottom of the table clash with St. Josephs to collect two very valuable points. The first quarter was dominated by both defences with Glyde opening the scoring in the first minute with a superb strike from the right side line from Niall Sharkey. The Joes failed to deal with the cross field breeze as a number of efforts drifted off target while Trevor O’Brien landed a 30m free for Glyde on 15mins. The Joes first effort on target was a 45 that came back off the post on 17mins. The deciding score of the game came when Trevor O’Brien responded quickest to a short kick out and he made not mistake to find the back of the Joes net on 20mins. The Joes finally got on the scoresheet with a long range effort from Conall Smyth, yet registering nine wides in that first half. Glyde Rangers were much the sharper side, finishing the half with half back Mark O’Brien pointing on 26mins and Brian Duffy converting a 45 to give Glyde Rangers a 1-4 to 0-1 half time lead. The Joes upped their game in the second half and good work by half time substitute Daire Smyth and Oisin McGuinness saw McGuinness on target in the first minute. However it was Glyde Rangers who stretched their lead when Trevor O’Brien setup corner back Ger Farrell for a point with Barry Brennan pointing a minute later. Peter Brennan and Conall Smyth pointed for the Joes with Niall Sharkey responding for Glyde. The Joes continued to create chances against a hard working Glyde defence with Alan McKenna and Oisin McGuinness pointing to leave Glyde ahead 1-7 to 0-6 on 45mins.
The Joes were again denied by a post and while at the opposite end Trevor O’Brien made no mistake with a point for Glyde on 51mins. Alan McKenna led the Joes attack in the final minutes, pointing two frees and seeing his goal bound effort saved by the out stretched boot of Glyde keeper David Brennan. Glyde Rangers had won the battle of the neighbours on a scoreline of 1-8 to 0-8.
