Junior B Hurling Notes

East Cork Championship Midleton 1:19 Cloyne 5:07

Last Sunday in Dungourney saw our Junior B’s play Cloyne in the final Group 2 match of the Eamonn Fleming Cup. After wins against Carrigtwohill and Dungourney in previous rounds Midleton were in pole position with Cloyne needing a victory to qualify for the quarter finals. With the scene set, a competitive and robust fixture ensued. In the end a draw was enough to see Midleton through as group winners with Cloyne losing out to Carrigtwohill for the runners up berth.

The QF’s of the Eamonn Fleming Cup are as follows:

Junior C Hurling Notes

Castlemartyr, Mon 24th Aug, East Cork Championship Midleton 0:11 Castlemartyr 1:15

We travelled to Castlemartyr on Monday 24th Aug to play the home team in the East Cork junior C hurling championship. In very tough conditions for quality hurling due to the rain, both teams produced a great game with some excellent defending and scores being taken. Midleton started with a great mix of youth and experience and despite many players having not played together before we showed some great interplay. At half time the score line read nine points to four in favour of the hosts. There was some great defending by the entire backline and a very steady performance from Keith Ryan in goals. We were unfortunate to lose Brian O’Sullivan to injury prior to half time. We wish Brian a speedy recovery. On the resumption Castlemartyr took a couple of very good scores to pull further ahead, but it was at this point that the Midleton players showed those who were present what this great club is all about. We dug in and showed brilliant resilience to claw our way back into the game. The forward unit were to a man working their socks off and with only minutes to go, it was a four-point game. Unfortunately, the goal we so badly needed, just would not come. Congratulations to Castlemartyr and we will regroup before our next game versus Fr O’Neill’s. Six minors made their championship debut for the adult club and each acquitted themselves extremely well. A special thank you to all their coaches who have brought them to this point. Well done to everyone involved with this team. 

Team: Keith Ryan, Ryan Cahill, Leo Hennessy, Patrick Kane, Brendan Ferriter, Robbie Barry (Captain), James O’Mahony, Liam Kelly, Gavin Reddy, Chris Power, Brian O’Sullivan, Paul Ahern, Andrew Rea, Sean Corcoran and Eoghan Collins. Substitutes used: Colin Dowling, Aaron Coughlan, Coleman Quinn and Joe Coppinger.

Fé14 Notes

Development Hurling League , Midleton 4:05 Ballincollig 4:11

Our U14 development team took on Ballincollig in the U14 development League on a sunny Sunday afternoon last in our refixed home fixture in Ballincollig.  Midleton got off to a fine start finishing the first quarter ahead with a s scoreline of 2-04 to 1-04 with scores from Callum O'Brien (1-02) Callum Deegan (1-00) and Jack Foley (0-02) both frees.   The water break seemed to revitalise Ballincollig who came out all guns blazing and put our defence under extreme pressure scoring 3-03  to Midletons single pointed free from the impressive Jack Foley.  This score could have been a lot worse if it weren’t for the defensive heroics of Diarmund Lester in goals and Eoin Aherne, Sennan Gleeson and Shane McNamara battling hard against an impressive Ballincollig attack.

The second half was a more even affair with Midleton edging the scoreboard 2-00 to 0-04, goals coming from Odhran Rabbite and Cian Stack.   Final Score Midleton 4-05 Ballincollig 4-11.

Jack Foley, Sennan Gleeson, Eoin Aherne, Diarmuid Lester, Rian O Donovan, Callum O'Brien and Mathew Gregory impressed for Midleton in what was a closer game than the scoreline suggests.

Next up in the U14 development League is a trip to Glen Rovers on weekend of Sept 27th.

Division 3B Hurling League Sarsfields 10-07 Midleton 3-02
It was a busy week for our Fé12 boys this week. First up was a trip to Riverstown for the Division 3B hurling league v Sarsfields. This turned out to be a tough battle for the lads against strong opposition. Big credit should go to the boys however for not giving up with particular strong performances from Rian Casey and James Lambe in defence, and also to Luke Bamber, Rory O’Riordan and Dara Birdthistle in attack, who all scored a goal each in the second half. The panel for this match was: Michael Allegrini, Patrick Collins, Fionn Bohan, Cian Hogan, Rian Casey, Cuan Twomey, James Lambe, Liam Walsh, Ruairi O’Riordan (captain), James O’Meara, Sean Gregory, Dara Cahill, Dara Birdthistle, James Carey, Jamie O’Donovan, Deniss Brusevics, Luke Bamber, Jack Connolly, Michael Barrett, Bradley O’Brien, Adam Spillane, Riain McCormack, Bréaninn O’Dalaigh, Jack Cahill.

Division 3B Football League Whitechurch

Next up was an away trip to Whitechurch for the last round of the Division 3B Football league on Monday night. On a windy night with conditions far from ideal for football the lads played very in the opening half, trailing at half time 1-02 to 2-03 against the much-fancied opposition, with James O’Meara scoring the goal. Despite a Ciaran Kelly goal in the second half and all the lads battling hard throughout, the scores just wouldn’t come and we were defeated on a final score of 2-02 to 4-07. The panel on the night was Bradley O’Brien, Michael Allegrini, Cian Hogan, Josh Quill, Fionn Bohan, Liam Walsh, Cuan Twomey (captain), Donnacha Horgan, Luke Bamber, James O’Meara, Ruairi O’Riordan, Ciaran Kelly, Riain McCormack, Dara Birdthistle, Bréaninn O’Dalaigh, Rian Casey, Jamie O’Donovan, Rossa, Patrick Collins, Dara Cahill, Sean Gregory.

Midleton 2-03 v St. Catherine’s 5-11 Division 3B Hurling league

The week ended with a hurling match at home against St. Catherine’s in the Division 3B hurling league. Despite playing against opposition that were top of the league, the lads performed very well and displayed a never say die attitude throughout the game. This was especially evident with some fantastic goalkeeping in each half by James Carey and Michael Allegrini, by Peader Egan in the heart of the defence and by Liam Walsh & Cuan Twomey who worked tirelessly throughout. Despite Jack Cahill and Ruairi O’Riordan scoring the goals the visitors ran out victorious in the end. Well done to all the lads involved. The panel for this match was: James Carey, Michael Allegrini, Cian Hogan, Rian Casey, Patrick Collins, Josh Quill, Peader Egan, Patrick Collins, Cuan Twomey, Liam Walsh, James O’Meara, Jack Cahill, Ruairi O’Riordan (captain), Riain McCormack, Bradley O’Brien, Luke Bamber, Sean Gregory, Jamie O’Donovan, Jack Connolly, Adam Spillane, Bréaninn O’Dalaigh.

Junior Notes

Junior Championship Sunday 30th August Midleton 0:13 Aghada 4:18

Our inaugural season in the Junior Camogie Championship came to an end at the Quarter Final stage last weekend on Sunday 30th August in Rostellan against a very accomplished Aghada Team. As always the girls kept battling to the final whistle and were unfortunate not to raise a green flag or 2. On the night we were well beaten but now that we have dipped our toes in at Adult level we have a better idea what is required and will look to continue to build for next year and beyond. It has been a great achievement to get an Adult Camogie Team on the field this year and now every girl in the club and area can aspire to playing Camogie at Adult level. We will continue to train and play games for as long as possible this year, and as happened over the last couple of months, look to attract more players to get involved. Thanks to everybody for their support and involvement to date.

Junior Panel 2020

U16 Notes

Wed 03rd Sep at Aghavine, Ballymacoda Midleton 4:09 Fr. O’Neills 0:05

The Midleton U16 panel continued their Summer 2020 A championship campaign with a difficult away encounter away to Fr. O’Neill’s last Wednesday 03rd Sep. Midleton were looking to continue their impressive performance as shown in their victory against Sars in the 1st round of the Championship. Midleton despite playing into a stiff breeze started strongly and won many of the early exchanges and having applied severe pressure on the Fr. O’Neills goal managed to finish the first quarter with a 0-5 to 0-1 advantage. The 2nd quarter continued in a similar fashion with Midleton enjoying the majority of possession and stretched the lead to 2- 7 to 0-3 at the half-time interval. Fr. O’Neills began to exert themselves in the 3rd and 4th quarters and managed some fine scores, however the Midleton defence managed to protect the goal and refused to concede throughout the full encounter.

In a very tightly contested game, there was some superb display of skill and heart from both teams and Midleton eventually ran out winners at the final whistle by a score of 4-09 to 0-5.

Next up for Midleton is an away fixture Killeagh on Sunday 13th Sep where we are looking forward to another exciting match and progressing to the knockout stage of the County championships

Midleton Team: Jill Connaughton, Elle McManus, Ruthi Hennessy, Laura Goulding, Muireann Ni Chonchubhair, Yvonne Abernethy, Aoife Fitzgerald, Emily Lamb, Emma O’Sullivan, Isabelle Nestor, Abbie Foley, Kelly Quirke, Saoirse Ni Theangana , Chloe Garde, Mia Tarrant, Rachel Ryan, Lora Dineen, Rebecca Crowley, Jade Fitzgerald, Kate O’Sullivan, Pippa Hennessy.
