Senior Hurling Championship
Midleton 1-11 Bishopstown 1-09
Last Friday evening we opened our campaign in the 2011 Evening Echo Cork Senior Hurling Championship. We faced Bishopstown in Carrigtwohill on a bright but windy evening. We had first use of the wind and got off to an excellent start. Luke O’Farrell scored a fine point followed by a well taken goal from Sean Hennessy. We played some nice hurling and built our lead. However we also struck some poor wides. Our opponents were struggling for scores due to the good work of our defenders coupled with some poor shooting. Luke O’Farrell, Paul Haughney and Stephen Moore kept the scoreboard building and by half time we led by eight points, 1-08 to 0-03. Our backs and midfield had been doing well and we were in a strong position. Bishopstown had all their scores from placed balls. The second half started in similar fashion with Midleton appearing to be in a comfortable position. After 40 minutes we led by 1-09 to 0-05. However Bishoptown added a couple of points from play and then a well taken goal from their captain Thomas Murray threw the game wide open. All of a sudden we were struggling up front and it was hard to see where the next Midleton score was going to come from. With ten minutes to go the sides were level. Midleton were battling hard but were making very few chances and not taking any of them. We were continuing to work hard and that hard work won us a couple of frees, both about 50 yards from goal. Cormac Walsh who had taken over the free taking duties calmly executed on both occasions to see us over the line.
There was relief all round to get over the first hurdle. Preparations had not been ideal with the call of exams and injury taking their toll. However the mentors and players put in the hard work and it was rewarded on the night.

Minor Hurling League
Midleton 3-17 Na Piarsaigh 3-12
Midleton enjoyed a good win over Na Piarsaigh when we travelled to the city in the non exam Minor Hurling League on Sunday afternoon. This win makes it four wins from 5 games played in the Non Exam League

Junior A Hurling Championship
Midleton v Lisgoold
Midleton Junior A hurlers are due in Championship action this coming weekend, June 18th/ 19th, though the fixture had not been finalised at the time of writing. After our Seniors winning at the weekend the Junior A selectors will be hoping for a similar result. Like all Clubs at this time of year exams have hindered preparations. That coupled with several injuries means that it will all come down to a performance on the night against opponents who have been in good form of late. This is a preliminary round with the winners progressing to the quarter final and the losers facing Carrignavar in the last sixteen.

Good Luck
Good luck to Michael Abernethy who will represent the Clubin the Fe16 Puc Fada County final to be held soon. 

 Best wishes and good luck to all our players in their Junior and Leaving Cert exams at present.

Fe 10

Midleton Fe 10 V Glen Rovers
Midleton's Fe 10 hurlers welcomed Glen Rovers to Clonmult Memorial Park for a hurling challenge on Monday evening 6th June.
Midleton had the higher numbers which unfortunately meant that we had to use substitutes. However everybody got good game time and had the chance to make the most of training time.
This was Midleton's first time to size up the Glen players and as it turned out on the night our lads were the stronger of the two teams.
Both teams got some good scores and defending by both teams was top notch.
Many thanks to Glen Rovers for making the trip to Midleton. We look forward to playing on your patch next time round.

Midleton Fe 10 V Fr O'Neills
Midleton welcomed Fr O'Neills Fe 10 hurlers to Clonmult Memorial Park on Saturday 11th of June.
Like the previous match, Midleton had the greater numbers meaning that we had to use substitutes in the game. That said, each player got a full half (20 minutes) of hurling.
We played two teams of 9 and at half time our lads played a different Fr O'Neills team.
Midleton were strong in both games and gave the opposition a cracking game.
Well done lads and keep up the practice at home.
