Juvenile

Fé15 Féile

The true judge of character is not always in winning but rather recovering from a loss. This being the case, our Fé15 showed trojan character in Aghada in the Group stages of this year’s Féile.

The first game of the day was against the hosts, Aghada. A battle was anticipated as the hosts had beaten Midleton in the Fé15 championship several weeks ago. The lads started very well, worked hard and lead at half time on a score line of 1:02 to 0:03. Not content to sit back, they drove on in the second half and finished 2:05 to 0:05 winners.

Next up was Youghal. This first half of this match saw Youghal scoring 3 goals, which in a 12 minute a side match is tough to recover from. Despite a lot of attacking in the second half we failed to bridge the gap and lost out on a score line of 3:05 to 1:07. The disappointment was palpable amongst the players and management.

The third game against unbeaten Killeagh gave the lads an opportunity to demonstrate their mettle. The ferocious intensity of the first game against Aghada was surpassed as we tore into the fancied Killeagh team from the start. We never let them settle with constant harassing when they had the ball and fantastic team-work in finding the ‘open man’ for scores when we had the ball. Whilst Killeagh kept trying, in the end we won on a score line of 1:10 to 0:06. Trojan character displayed by all.

The end of the 3 games saw Midleton, Killeagh and Youghal on 2 wins each, after some calculations followed by jubilant celebrations, Midleton were deemed winners and progress to the semi-finals on Monday night where they will play Shamdrum. Best of luck lads.

A special word of thanks to Damien Garde of Garde Engineering for sponsoring gear for the panel to mark the occasion. This is a generous gesture and much appreciated by the players, management, and the wider club. Míle Buíochas.

Fé13 P2 FOOTBALL V BANDON

First up in the second phase of P2 football games was a home match against Bandon on the bank holiday Friday. Unfortunately, the game was delayed as the appointed referee failed to show, with a coach from each side taking charge for a half each. Despite the delayed throw in, the lads started the game well and played some good football, with goals coming from Senan Carroll, James O’Meara and Sean Gregory. The second half was keenly contested but a further goal from Sean Gregory gave the lads a well-deserved victory on a final score of Midleton 4-06 Bandon 2-08.

Fé13 HURLING V ERIN’S OWN

First up in the second phase of hurling games for the lads was a short trip to play Erin’s Own in Caherlag. The lads showed great determination from the outset in this match with early goals from Dara Birdthistle and Max Murphy setting the tone. Playing against the breeze for the opening 30 minutes the lads worked very hard together as a team and a second goal from Dara Birdthistle before the break resulted in a half time score of Midleton 3-04 to Erin’s Own 0-06. The high work rate continued in the second half and a great team move from defence to attack saw Patrick O’Dowd neatly finishing to the back of the net. The scoring was completed late in the second half with a well-deserved goal by James Carey to give a final score of Midleton 5-08 to Erin’s Own 1-09.  Well done Lads. The panel for the match was: Luke Bamber, Dara Birdthistle, James Carey, Senan Carroll, Rian Casey, Patrick Collins, Cian Lawton, Jason Morley, Patrick O’Brien, Jack Cahill, Darragh Mullins, Michael Allegrini, Max Murphy (captain), Patrick O’Dowd, Shane O’Mahony, James O’Meara, Ruairi O’Riordan, Cuan Twomey, Harry Waterman.

FE14 Notes

Fe 14 Championship Camogie V Cloughduv

U14A Championship 2nd round, Midleton Camogie Vs Cloughduv.

On Wednesday night our girls lined out against Cloughduv at home in Clonmult park. These two sides had played out a hard fought draw in the league so we knew that a tough game was to be expected. The game started well for Midleton with Tia Wall Wallace grabbing an early goal and Kate O Sullivan knocking over some fine points, Cloughduv piled on the pressure with some great forward play but our defence stood up strong and forced a few wides. We welcomed back a fit again Pippa Hennessey who like all our defenders put in a solid performance. Sarah McConville tagged on another point before half time while our half forwards Cara Foley and Rebecca Cronin put in some great runs down both wings delivering the ball in on goal. A special mention goes to the Cloughduv goalkeeper who was excellent throughout the game. The score at half time was Midleton 1-5 to 0-1.

After the break Midleton got another few points on the board with quick and accurate puck outs from our goalkeeper Kate Griffin, our points scorers were Faye Dunlea, our captain Sorcha Cronin, Kate O Sullivan, Rebecca Cronin and a great goal from Sarah McConville after which we brought on all our subs with Cara Wallace just denied a great goal with yet another save from their goalie. Cloughduv fought all the way to the end with the scoreline finishing 

Midleton 2-10 

Cloughduv 0-4

We would like to thank the referee Maurice Mulcahy, our supporters and finally we wish Cloughduv all the best for the remainder of the Championship.
