Minor Football Championship 

Midleton 6:6 v Kiltha Óg 4:8

Midleton and Kiltha Og threw up a very entertaining hours action at Clonmult Memorial Park on Wednesday last in the East Fe18 Football Championship. Kiltha Og got out of the traps the quickest and had 3 points on the board without reply. Midleton found their feet slowly and stunned Kiltha with 3 quick goals, 2 from full forward Charlie Walsh and the other from Brion Saunderson. The rest of the half was tit for tat until Kiltha found a couple of goals of their own to keep the contest very close. Half time was Midleton 3-4 Kiltha Og 2-5. Midleton goaled through Paul Connaughton early in the second half but Kiltha came back strongly and with the aid of a couple of goals found themselves back in front. Midleton didn’t wilt though and further goals from Ciarmhac Smyth and James O Sullivan  saw Midleton home in the end. It sets us up for a winner takes all battle with Youghal for a place in the semi-finals. This is provisionally pencilled in for Wednesday the 26th of August in Midleton but will announce once it’s confirmed. Final Score: Midleton 6-6 Kilta Og 4-8

Ladies Football

U16 Notes

East Cork League Midleton 6:13 Mayfield 6:10.

Classic in Sun drenched Mayfield

On Monday evening last our U16 girls travelled to Mayfield to take on the Mayfield girls in in the East Cork League. 12 girls (an even blend of U14 & U16 girls) were only available. But in the good sportwomanship that is ladies football Mayfield supplied us with 2 players for each half ensuring the maximum game time for every girl. On a beautiful afternoon for football we started spritely and from the throw in attacked the Mayfield goal. Before Mayfield could settle we had the ball over the bar and in the net. Mayfield soon found their rhythm and what followed was a pulsating, hearth stopping, energy sapping, end to end game. At the half time whistle Mayfield held the lead on a score line of 3:6 to 3:3.

‘Fantastic’ is the word that sums up the performance in the second half. The backs were brilliant from Elle in goals (we used the goals as a respite for the girls to take a break – started with Sophie in goal, then Aoife and finished with Elle) Their kick outs was the key to all our attacks. Each and every one of the girls were brilliant and the worked and played as a team. Even when Aisling had to retire before half time with a head injury who had an absolute stormer of a first half, the rest of the team responded by increasing their workrate to keep in touch with Mayfield’s numerical advantage.

The running and passing movement from both teams was awesome but Midleton were that bit stronger on the night and ran out on a score of 6:13 to Mayfields 6:10.

The Football pathway for these girls is very bright indead. Very Well done.

Next game up is away to Fermoy Thursday 20th Aug, and we can’t wait.

Team  Grainne Finn (0-5), Aisling McCarthy, Emma O'Sullivan, Aoife Fitzgerald(0-1), Elsa Ryan, Mia Tarrant (2-2)Aoife Mulcahy (2-0),Isabelle Nestor, Rachel Quirke (2-3), Elle McManus, Rachel Ryan(0-2),Sophie McCarthy

P1 Hurling League Midleton 4:13 Glen Rovers 2:18

Midleton continued where they left off against Bride Rovers with another gritty performance against Glen Rovers on Saturday afternoon above in the cauldron that is The Glen. Once again our lads fell behind by the smallest margin minutes from the final whistle only to push for two hard earned points and grind out a tremendous win. Our full forward line looked very threatening all day with Davide Nowak impressing by providing his brother Karim the opportunity to grab two goals early on, along with Dara Fitz taking his points in turn. Our first goal was finished to the net by Davy Cremin following a surging run forward and we kept the scoreboard ticking over with a few well taken Mikey Finn frees. The Glen came back into it towards half time where the score read Mid 3-6 to Glen 0-9, with Rory Lester shining at midfield.

With our half back line of Tadhg, Brian and Alex hurling well to prevent the Glen from gaining momentum, Stuart O’Connor pounced in the 40th minute to score a hurler’s goal. Tiarnán Roche caught the eye finishing his solo run with a well taken point to push Midleton further ahead. However, the Glen would not give up and started to gain reward for their efforts eventually drawing level, despite the contributions of our solid full back line of Dara Scanlon, Michael Roe, and Cathal Beausang who held firm. Eventually after a lot of pressure the Glen went a point up but not before the excited crowd saw the excellent Zac Smith make save after save to deny the Glen forwards. A self-made point by Dara Fitz and a finely executed free by Mickey Finn ensured the Midleton win, a deserved result for the honest efforts of all. Fulltime score: 4-13 to 2-18.

Well done and congratulations to our lads, three wins from three and we have topped the pool, and are now into the semi-final. A steely bunch who go about their business with purpose, bring on the next opposition.

Squad: Z Smith, D Scanlon, M Roe, C Beausang, T O’Leary Hayes, B O’Connell, A Moloney, T Roche, R Lestor, S O’Connor, M Finn, D Cremin, D Fitzgerald, K Monak, D Monak, D Greene, F Dalton, D Coffey, E Higgins, E McGrath, R de Barra, TJ Murphy, D Garde, N Lang (inj).

Scorers: M Finn 0-6 (0-6f); K Monak 2-1; S O’Connor, D Cremin 1-1; D Fitzgerald 0-3; T Roche 0-1.

P2 Football Championship Midleton 6:12 Youghal 4:10

On Monday Copperalley in Youghal was the venue for our latest P2 Football clash.  Under blue skies and a light winds this turned out to be a fantastic display of attacking football from both teams.  We began well with Adam O’Connor getting on the score sheet with a well taken point from play,  Adam kept this form throughout the match in what was an excellent individual display.  Eoghan Fraser and Carthaigh Cronin were having a battle royale with their opponents at mid field.   John Paul McManus, Callum McSweeney and Matthew Gregory were tigerish in our defence.  Peter Barrett and Darragh Egan were doing great work with some fine link play.  Luca Brodkorb and James McSweeney were causing plenty of problems for the busy Youghal defenders.  While Callum O’ Brien and Odhran Dennigen were on top form.  Sean McSharry’s clever use of possession allowed us to put the seasiders under pressure in a highly entertaining first half.  Half time score Midleton 3.06,   Youghal 2.05.

The score fest continued in the second half Youghal were certainly making a game of it, they had some very impressive forwards and kept our backs busy throughout the game.  A penalty by Sean McSharry seemed to have sealed the victory for us but Youghal came roaring back with four points from play.  Josh Foleys clever kick out enabled us to work the ball up the pitch where Cathraigh kicked a fine point, this was quickly followed by an Odhran Dennigen free to settle our nerves.  Conor Morley now playing in defence snuffed out two final attacks from Youghal and we ended up on the right side of a 6.12 to 4.10 result. 

Panel:  Josh Foley, John Paul McManus, Callum McSweeney, Fionn Kelly,  Peter Barrette, Darragh Egan, Daniel Garde, Eoghan Fraser(1.0), Carthaigh Cronin(0.01), Callum O’Brien(1.0),  James McSweeney, Sean McSharry (2.02), Adam O Connor (0.03), Luca Brodkorb(0.01), Odhran Dennigen(1.04),  Jack Foley, Conor Morley, Matthew Gregory,  Senan Gleeson, Odhran Rabbitte(0.01).

Fé13 Notes

On Wednesday evening in a sun drenched Castlemartyr, we took on Kiltha Óg. In a very entertaining hours hurling and in perfect conditions. We came away with a hard fought victory.

Div 3 Football League Midleton 4:05 Nemo Rangers 2:07

The second round of Football matches in the Division 3B saw the arrival of Nemo Rangers to Clonmult Memorial Park on Sunday August 9th. The game was played in very good spirits throughout with nothing between the teams until Sean Gregory struck for a well taken goal just before the first water break. Substitute Deniss Brusevics was now having a big impact on the game and was involved in the second goal which resulted in a clever finish by sharpshooter Dara Cahill. This put Midleton in front at the half time whistle 2-05 to 0-03. After the restart the lads continued to play some great football with further scores coming from Liam Walsh, James Carey and the Ciaran Kelly, leaving the final score Midleton 4-05 Nemo 2-07. This was a very impressive team performance, with some very notable individual performances from captain Cuan Twomey and Cian Hogan in defence to Ciaran Kelly and Jack Cahill up front, who were a constant threat to the Nemo rear-guard. We done to all the lads.

The panel for this match was: Michael Allegrini, Patrick O’Dowd, Harry Waterman, Jack Connolly, Cian Hogan, Cuan Twomey, James Lambe, Josh Quill, Liam Walsh, Jack Cahill, Ciaran Kelly, Dara Cahill, Jamie O’Donovan, James Carey, Sean Gregory, Michael Barrett, Jason Morley, Deniss Brusevics.
