Sunday 30 Nov 2014 Fe 14 - Prem 1 Hurling League
Midleton GAA (2-12) vs Duhallow (1-08)
Earlier this morning in Blarney, we defeated a fancied Duhallow side in the replay of the drawn Rebel Og semi Final of the Fe14 P1 Hurling League on a scoreline of 2-12 to 1-8. This was an eagerly contested game between two strong teams. Having lost the County Championship final to Duhallow, we certainly wanted to prove a point. This we achieved. We opened the scoring with a point from play. Before long though Duhallow had replied with 4 unanswered points. Midleton though were playing great ball into the inside forwards and this resulted in Midleton scoring 1-7 leading up to HT leaving the score at Midleton 1-8 Duhallow 0-4.
Duhallow were dominant in the third quarter and had the score back to 1-8 to 1-7 before Midleton had our first score of the second half. Midleton gradually assumed command again and tacked on a few points. Duhallow tried gallantly to score the goal they badly needed, but the Midleton rearguard were excellent. With Duhallow piling forward, they were exposed at the back and Midleton pounced for a great goal with 5 minutes to go. We now meet Sars in the League Final which is likely to be played within the next week.
