Tuesday 28 Jul 2020 Fe 14 - Football League

Killeagh (9:7) vs Midleton GAA (5:10)

Midleton, 19:00PM

Tuesday evening in Midleton we faced Killeagh/ Ita’s in our first Championship football match.  Once again we were blessed with the weather but unfortunately that’s where the blessings ended.  Killeagh got off to a flyer and the first quarter was one to be forgotten for us,  we were blitzed on a score line of Midleton one goal Killeagh 3.04, the skilful Odhran Dennigen  just about keeping us in touch with a very well taken goal.  Killeagh continued to pile on the pressure but our lads were certainly putting up a brave battle at half time the score line was Killeagh 6.05 Midleton 2.02.  Odhran Dennigan was again our main scoring threat with 1.01 and Daniel Garde had a fine point from play .


During the half time break we had a very frank discussion and on the resumption it was like a different Midleton team took the field in what was end to end action with some well taken scores and real team play.  A great team move involving James McSweeney and Sean McSharry saw the excellent Odhran Dennigan complete his hat trick. Odhran added another pointed free to his tally.  At that point Sean McSharry stood up claiming goal and a point to show his undoubted class. That quarter ended Midleton 2.02, Killeagh/ Ita’s 2.01.  We faced into the final quarter having regained some pride but still faced a daunting score line.  Our lads threw off the shackles and it was an all out attack and through sheer hard work and determination we threw everything at our opponents points from Eoghan Fraser, Daniela Garde and Odhran Dennigan were quickly followed by another Sean McSharry rocket to the back of the net Daniel Garde got forward for his third point from play Sean McSharry and Cathraigh added a point apiece and then Cathraigh goaled a reward for his hard work throughout the match.   The final whistle saw the score ended with a score line Midleton 6.10 Killeagh / Ita’s 9.07.   A game lost but honour gained!

Adam O Connor,  Josh Foley and Darragh Egan were defiant in defence, Carthaigh Cronin , Daniel Garde and Eoghan Frasier  gave their all while Odhran Dennigen and Sean McSharry were lethal up front.
