Juvenile

Fe16 Midleton v Youghal Division 2 Football

On a very wet and miserable Friday evening the Fe16’s travelled to Youghal to start off their season by playing their first game of the year. Youghal took the lead early on but once our lads settled they started to get the points on the board. First half scores from Brion Saunderson and Ben O Neill saw the half time score as Midleton 1-02 Youghal 3-05. Midleton were definitely the stronger of the two teams in the second half and had good phases of play which saw the scoreline swiftly change. A great effort by the boys saw us reduce the score with Evan McCarthy, Ciarmhac Smyth Cian Murray, Brion Saunderson and Michael Roe all registering scores. Final score was Midleton 3-07 Youghal 4-07

Team: Neil Fitzgerald, Ciarmhac Smyth, Evan McCarthy, Brion Saunderson,  Ben O Neill, Shay Bohan, Phelim Magan, Darragh Codd, Cian Murray, Liam McGrath, Jordan Cahill, Niall Corcoran, Daire Mooney, Rory Hartnett, Craig Whyte, Adam Fay, James O Sullivan, Cathal Beausang and Michael Roe

Fe 13 Premier 1 Football League

Sunday the 24th Feb saw us make the now familiar trip to Mallow to take on the hosts, the pitch in Mallow was sticky, overhead conditions were dry but very windy. We faced into the wind for the first half, Mallow were first off the mark with two points form play before Eoghan Fraser slotted over a great point from play after some excellent team work. Mallow then goaled despite the best efforts of Goal Keeper Conor Morley, Mallow powered on with a point from a free and then goaled from a penalty. Against the strong breeze we found it very difficult to gain primary possession but when we did we worked well as a team. A fine point from play from James Mc Sweeney was followed by a lovely score from Daragh Egan. Despite a period of dominance we failed to convert a number of opportunities and Mallow responded with two killer goals the second of which was a penalty in that incident we lost our influential goal keeper Conor to injury. Half time score Mallow 4.04 Midleton 0.03. The second half saw a further improvement in our performance which resulted in another fine point from Daragh Egan but Mallow quickly responded with two points from play. After some heavy Midleton pressure we were awarded a penalty which was slotted home by Thomas Dunlea, but Mallow goaled again to leave us facing an uphill battle for the last 10 minutes but credit to the lads they never gave up, Thomas scored again with point from play. Late on we moved the ball through a fantastic passage of play, from our own 21 all the way up the pitch ending with Fionn Kelly kicking over a fine point from play. The final scoreline Mallow 5.06 Midleton 1.06 was bit tough on the lads but overall it was a good effort for our first day of league action. Playing Premier 1 is going to be difficult but our performances should improve as we get more opportunities to train. Thanks to all the parents for travelling again to Mallow and to Mallow for hosting

Fe12 Premier 2 Football League

Ovens was the venue for our first competitive Premier 2 Football League game for 2019. On what turned out to be literally a game of two halves. Our young magpies got a taste of what’s to come, with a hard fought but satisfying win over a very fancied Eire Óg side in a blustery Ovens on Saturday afternoon. From the off Midleton contested every ball, but after the first 10 minutes we found ourselves 3 points to no score down playing against a very strong wind. As the half wore on and we got to grips with our opponents. After a fortuitous own goal , we then had a very good passage of play from Nicky Coughlan and Matthew Herbert which  resulted in the strong running Matthew McSweeney to rifle the ball to the top corner of the net to leave us 2 goals to 3 pts up after fifteen minutes of play. We were playing really well against a very strong wind, thanks to the efforts of captain Cian Fitzgerald, Eoin Ahern, Nicky Coughlan, Rory Hynes, Matthew Herbert and the very impressive centreback Peter Barrett keeping us within range of our opponents. Then came a purple patch for the home side, in which a ten minute spell yielded 1-7 without reply. This put us under enormous pressure, but the very busy Rory Hynes finished a great move in which Josh Hogan and Nicky Coughlan we’re involved to stick the ball to the back of the net just before halftime. At the short whistle we trailed by 1-10 to 3-0 after battling very hard. A few stern words at halftime and the boys raised their game to another level. We eventually started to dominate and the midfield partnership of McSweeney and Coughlan got to grips with the game. As the half wore on. We grew in confidence and our forwards Jake Kirby and Conor Finn started to gain vital possession. Scores from Josh Hogan (1pt )Nicky Coughlan( 1 pt)and the influential Barrett (3 pts )insured we finish strongly. Our backs stood firm for the last frantic five minutes and we came away with a fantastic win against a very good footballing side. This was a great battling performance from the lads. The game was open and despite the strong wind was very entertaining. The referee let the game flow which made it very highly entertaining to watch. We finished on a score line of Midleton 3-5 to Eire Óg 1-10
