Senior Hurling Notes

Senior Championship Midleton 1:18 Douglas 0:22

In a ‘winner takes all game’ we lost out by a point to Douglas. Having led by six during the opening half a seven in-a-row from Douglas either side of the interval break handed them the lead - 0-14 to 1-10 - for the first time in match on 33 minutes. With the second half seeing the scores level on seven occasions we failed to narrow the one point gap in the end.

Juvenile

Fé12 Notes

There were no competitive matches for the Fé12 lads this week. A planned trip to Rathcormac on Monday was cancelled when Bride Rovers unfortunately conceded the game to us at late notice. We played a useful hurling challenge match v Blackrock on Tuesday night with 17 lads making the trip to St. Michael’s GAA in Mahon. This week there is a Division Division 3B hurling match away to Sarsfields on Sunday and then a Division 3B hurling match away to Whitechurch on Monday.

This year we are missing one of our strongest and most dedicated players, Kacper Kozlowski, who is unfortunately undergoing treatment for a serious illness. His friends and neighbours organised a Spinathon last Saturday to raise much needed funds to help Kacper & his family over the next few months. There was great support across the entire day from friends, neighbours and the wider Midleton community with a large number of Midleton GAA club members working up a sweat on the bikes. Thanks to Sinead Dunlea and all those who organised this fundraiser. Keep an eye out for further fundraisers over the next while and support if you can.

Camogie

Minor Notes

Championship Midleton 2:03 Youghal 0:16

We bowed out of the Minor Camogie Championship against a more experienced and physically stronger Youghal team. 2 first half goals, one a wonderful overhead strike by Sadhbh Beausang, gave us an interval lead of 2 points. Unfortunately , try as we might , we could not stem the Youghal challenge and they dominated the last quarter to run out winners by 7 points. Well done to all the girls involved, who gave everything on the day and kept going until the final whistle. It was disappointing to go out in the 2nd round, but this is a young team and they will be back again. Hopefully we will have League fixtures at some point before the year is over.

Ladies Football

U16 Notes

East Cork League Midleton 4:14 Fermoy 2:04

Midleton U16's ladies continue on their winning ways. This team growing in confidence with each game recorded a great victory last Thursday night when we travelled to the mighty town of Fermoy on the Blackwater for round 3 of the East Cork league. Midleton led from start to finish, leading at the break 1:8 to 2 points with the result never in doubt. Over the hour Midleton were much too strong for a young Fermoy side that fought bravely to the final whistle. Final score was 4-14 to 2-4

Team on the night.

U12 Notes

East Cork League Midleton 3:02 Erins Own 1:3

Midleton LGFA U12s lined out vs Erins Own for their first game of the 2020 season in Caherlag Sunday last. Perfect conditions for a game. Both teams started out well and were well matched in all areas of the field. However, as time moved on Midleton began to shoot at goal and after a few wides eventually chalked up the first score (a point) midway through the first half compliments of Faye Dunlea. As play ensued there were more wides from us but also a well-placed goal from a free by Roisín McManus from midfield position. The first half closed with a score line of Midleton 1-2 to no score. In the second half we were playing into the wind however this did not put a halt to our gallop and we scored a further 2 goals ( from Oonagh Lang and Caoilinn Fraser) and a point from Faye Lordan Bailey.
Erins own made a change in their forward line after the 2nd water break and they added a tally of 1 -3 to their account. But it wasn’t enough to catch up. Credit is due to every one of the players who did not falter once when the pressure was put on towards the end of the game.

The final score was 3-2 Midleton to Erins Own 1-3 A great result considering it was our first game in 11 months. Well done girls!!

Panel: Ciara Murphy, Molly Barrett, Hannah O’ Brien, Emma Keeshan, Chloe Corby, Ciara McGrath, Leah

Condolences

Midleton GAA would like to offer our sympathies to the Crotty family, Patrick, Catherine, David, Timothy, Pat, John, Michael and Eamonn on the recent passing of their wife and mother Kathleen. The Crotty family have been stalwarts of Midleton GAA for many years at playing, coaching and administrative level with Kathleen herself best remembered for her 40 years service in the club shop, for her work on the Ladies Committee and also her dedicated and passionate support of all Midleton teams.  The thoughts and prayer of club members are with you all at this sad time.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
