Sciath na Scol: Sophie Thompson fires in five for Maria Assumpta

Scoil Maria Assumpta, Ballyphehane 5-11 Star of the Sea, Passage 3-4

Roinn Urban GF1

Sophie Thompson led the way for Maria Assumpta, scoring five goals as they saw off Star of the Sea in a thrilling Allianz Sciath na Scol Roinn Urban GF1 tie yesterday at Páirc Uí Rinn.

Thompson ran riot from midfield, setting the tone early by drilling her shot past Passage ‘keeper Phoebe O’Hara before adding goals two and three either side of half-time. A tenacious Passage team refused to throw in the towel however and their hard work paid off when Jane Finlay drilled a shot past impressive goalkeeper Katie Jean Baptiste.

Thompson hoisted two points over the bar before Star of the Sea substitute Sophie O’Shea - hardly on the pitch for 15 seconds - blasted into the roof of the net before Shauna Wilke added a goal of her own.

Thompson consolidated the win for her side with back-to-back goals; the first deflecting off goalkeeper Phoebe O’Hara and the second placed in the bottom left-hand corner just as the final whistle sounded.

Scorers for Maria Assumpta:

S Thompson (5-6), L Gilhooly (0-2), S Murphy, A Mendez, M McHale (0-1 each)

GS de h-Íde 4-2 Carrigtwohill 3-3

Roinn GF2

Cliodhna de Brún rescued her Gaelscoil de h-Íde side when she rounded off her hat-trick late in the second-half against a determined Carrigtwohill outfit in Roinn GF2 of the Allianz Sciath na Scol.

De Brún was the driving force in attack, playing a ball in minutes after the first whistle towards Niamh Ní Ghuinneabhain, who hit home the opening goal.

Maedhbh de Burca quickly equalised before Katie Ryan and Amy Cunningham earned their side the lead with a point each.

De Brún restored a commanding 3-1 to 1-2 lead with two quick goals before Katie Ryan of Carrigtwohill responded in similar fashion in the second half with two cracking goals,

Carrigtwohill looked to have the game won before the Fermoy outfit stepped up when it mattered most through de Brún, who earned her side the win by rifling beyond goalkeeper Jody O’Connor.

Glenville 1-15 Firmount 2-4

Roinn DF5

An outstanding Glenville team, spearheaded by Eanna Fitzgerald and captain Calum O’Mahony, proved too hot for Firmount at Pairc Ui Rinn yesterday in the Allianz Sciath na Scol Roinn DF5 decider.

Any early nerves for Glenville were settled with quick points from O’Mahony and Ross Hennessy before Darragh Buckley of Firmount drove his long-range shot into the net for a stunning goal.

He tagged a point on to his tally shortly afterwards, as the Muskerry outfit began to take over possession, with Luke Kendellan and Cian Buckley also impressing.

Glenville restored order however, via points from the ever present Eanna Fitzgerald and Liam Foley, before Kendellan shrunk Glenville’s lead with a well-taken goal.

Glenville maintained their poise as O’Mahony, Foley and Fitzgerald helped to push the lead to 11 points before the captain put the game beyond doubt with a well-deserved goal.

Scorers for Glenville:

C O’Mahony (1-3), R Hennessy (0-4), E Fitzgerald (0-4), L Foley (0-2), M O’Driscoll & S O’Callaghan (0-1 each),

Kilmurry 2-8 Ballincurrig 2-5

Roinn DF6

Kilmurry ran out winners in the final Allianz Sciath na Scol fixture of the year in Páirc Uí Rinn, seeing off a Ballincurrig side that at one stage were trailing by 2-3 to 0 -2.

Kilmurry’s early lead came courtesy of a flurry of scores from nimble forward Joe O’Mullane, who posted 1-3 in a matter of minutes.

Alexander Aisling provided the assist for O’Mullane’s goal and followed up with one of his own after some good interlinking between him and his midfield partner Rory Duggan.

Ballincurrig finally sprung to life with a goal from Michael Roe before his team mate Matthew O’Sullivan beat a number of defenders and fired over a point.

Kilmurry appeared rattled as they hit a litany of wides but O’Mullane settled his team by rounding the Ballincurrig defence and slotting a point.

O’Sullivan responded in style with the goal of the day. The corner-forward, with his back to the goal, scooped the ball up with his foot, pivoted and beat the ‘keeper to bring his side within three points.

Kilmurry saw their opponent’s resurgence off, however, with Aisling and Michael O’Connell making sure of the victory with a point each.

Scorers for Kilmurry:

J O’Mullane (1-4) A Aisling (1-02) R Duggan (0-01) M O’Connell (0-01)

Scorers for Ballincurrig:

M O’Sullivan (1-3, 1 free) J Nagle (0-1), M Roe (1-1),
