Fé15 Féile

Féile Semi Final.

Having qualified for the Féile semi-final, after an exciting Saturday’s action in Rostellan, all roads pointed to Douglas on Monday last 23rd. We were drawn to play Shandrum, with the winner to play the Sars v Ballincollig semi final.  Our knowledge of our opponents was very limited, but they certainly left us in no doubt of their quality and intent, racing into an early lead. The lads responded well to the challenge, and we regained the initiative after some determined play to lead at halftime Midleton 1-03 Shandrum 0-03.

The second half saw us press home our advantage and the accuracy and precision of our passing and shooting improved considerably.  Our defence was rock solid and gave away very little scoring opportunities, a job well done.

Semi Final Fulltime Midleton 3-08 Shandrum 0-0

Féile Final.

Having defeated Ballincollig, Sars were our opponents in the final.  Only a few weeks previously they had inflicted a heavy defeat on us in the championship. We had put that aside and just decided to go toe to toe and throw everything into this opportunity.  The first half was played at a frenzied pace, both teams going hell for leather, at the short whistle we trailed by two points Midleton 0-05 Sars 1-04 .

The second half was again an all action affair, both teams were evenly matched.  As the time ticked on we were trailing by two points.  We were awarded a free, Sars defenders lined the goal, Daniel Garde hit his shot low and hard and the noise level went up to fever pitch as the sliothar found its way to the net. Sars launched another attack and pointed a free to level the match. Midleton 1-07 Sars 1-07.

Extra time was five minutes aside.  It was almost as if each team was waiting for the other to blink.  We eventually managed a fine score from play but Sars responded with a matching point.  At the whistle we were unsure of the next step and waited for referee Brian Sweeney to get the confirmation that it was Golden Score, next team to score would take the honours.  The tension and excitement was unreal as the ball was thrown in.  Cool heads were required as the ball broke in our favour, two quick passes saw Sean Mc receive the sliothar on the run, he split the posts and the Midleton players and supporters were overjoyed as the umpire raised his hand.  Game over, Midleton were Cork Feile champions for 2021. Both teams deserve great credit for the quality of hurling and commitment on display. It was a tough way to lose a match but credit to Sars the players and management were gracious in their congratulations.  The level of respect between both clubs has always been shared.

A proud Adam O Connor accepted the cup on behalf of his teammates and club.  We adjourned to our pavilion at Clonmult Pairc, pizza and a few lemonades were downed as parents and players celebrated a fantastic achievement.    We go on to represent Cork in Thurles in October.  Well done to all our players they are a tight knit group and each and everyone of them has contributed to this win.

We now head into football Feile determined to give a good account of ourselves, and it gives the lads another opportunity to wear their very snappy Feile gear sponsored, generously, by GARDE ENGINEERING.

Midleton had a strong second quarter and managed to pull the visitors back to 3 points and trailed Ballinora by 07 to 0-4 at the interval

Midleton started the second half strongly and worked some fine scores from play to bring the deficit to the bare minimum, however Ballinora showed their class and managed 2 goals in quick succession before the final water break. Midleton competed strongly in the final quarter but found it difficult to convert their chances and Ballinora ran out victors 3-11 to 1-7.

Minor Notes

Minor Championship V’s Enniskeane. Midleton 1-04 Enniskeane 1-13.

Our first outing in the Minor Championship Round Robin was a tough trip to Enniskeane. After a good start where we led by 1-02 to 0-00, Jodie Keegan O’Connell scoring 1-1 and Saoirse Ni Theangana adding a point , Enniskeane fought their way back into the game to be only a point behind at half time. It continued to be a close encounter until the final 10 minutes where Enniskeane’s physical superiority began to tell and they ran out winners by 9 points. Our girls battled all the way to end , and this young team will go again against St Finbarr’s and will no doubt give it their all once  again.

Panel:  Jill Connaughton, Megan Kelly, Leah Hogan, Laura Goulding, Caoimhe Cronin, Aoife Fitzgerald, Misha Daly Harkin, Vivienne Gleeson, Isabelle Nestor, Clara McCarthy, Jodie Keegan O’Connell, Emma O’Sullivan, Abbie Foley, Saoirse Ni Theangana, Rachel Ryan, Mia Tarrant, Kelly Quirke, Rebecca Crowley, Elle McManus, Jade Fitzgerald.

Ladies Football 

Congratulations to our U15 Girls who were crowned Feile Winners yesterday. They beat Carrigtwohill, Inch Rovers and St Nicks to reach the final against Youghal and what a final it was. Having most of the possession in the first half we just could not get the scores thanks to some great saves from the Youghal keeper. Going in at half time we found ourselves 2-01 to no score down. The coaches asked the girls to give it their all for the second half which was only twelve and a half minutes and each girl did just that. They blocked ball, ran, defended their hearts out and after 5 minutes we got our first score. With minutes remaining on the clock they played some fantastic football and with great passages of play we found the scores we needed. Final score was Midleton 2-02 Youghal 2-01. There was great delight when our captain Rachel Ryan received the cup. Great credit is due to the girls who played all their games in extremely warm conditions. Their conduct and behaviour on and off the field was excellent. Girls we are all very proud of you. 

Special mention must also go to Elsa Ryan and Gráinne Finn who each received All Star medals for their performance in all games.  Many thanks to St Nicks and Glen Rovers who hosted an excellent day.
