Junior C Hurling Championship

Midleton 4-09 Carrigtwohill 1-12

On Friday night we travelled to play the hosts under lights in the first round of the east Cork Junior C Hurling Championship. We travelled with a team consisting of a lovely blend of youth and experience. We started well and took some excellent scores from play allied to the ace free taking of Mark O'Keeffe. On the changeover Carrigtwohill asserted themselves and roared back into the contest. It was nip and tuck until the closing stages when Midleton were able to close out the game through some great scores.  

Team: Keith Ryan, Daniel Wathen, Padraig Dunlea, Ryan Cahill, Robbie Barry, Barry Fitzgerald, Conor Evans (Captain), Evan Kelly, Cian Murray, Mark O'Keeffe, Colin Dowling, Peter Dowling, Paul Ahern, Sean Corcoran, Cillian Hurley. Substitutes used Davy O'Brien, Phelim McGann, Declan McInerney and Jerome Curtin

This was a great win for the fifth team to represent the club in championship hurling in 2021. Well done all.

County Finals this weekend.

This is a big weekend for our F12, Fe13 & Fe15 with 4 teams contesting football finals.

On Saturday in Ballinacurra our Fe15 beat a fancied Youghal team on a score line of 3;11 to 1:04. Attention will turn to hurling as this panel focus on the upcoming All-Ireland Feile in Thurles later in the month.

On Sunday morning there was a Fe12 double-header in Glanmire with our Fe12 Div 1 & Div 4 teams taking on the home teams. Unfortunately, we suffered defeats in both games. The Div 1 team, despite a strong fight-back in the 2nd half lost out on a score line of 1:09 to 1:05. The Div 4 team's final went to extra time and despite trying to the end, lost out on a score line of 3:11 to 3:05. We will see more from this group of magpies. Keep up all the good work.

Monday evening sees our Fe13s play Carrigtwohill in the P2 Football League final in Carrigtwohill under lights at 7pm. All support is welcome.

Fé13 P2 HURLING SEMI FINAL V ERINS OWN

The Fé13 lads faced Erin’s Own at home in the semi-final of the P2 hurling competition on Saturday October 2nd. Having previously played and beaten their opponents earlier in the competition, they knew they would be made work hard for another victory. The first half was a close affair with scores hard to come by for the lads. A goal in the first quarter by James Carey and another goal after the water break from a long free by Senan Carroll gave us a half time score of Midleton 2-00 to Erin’s Own 0-07. However, after the break the lads dug deep and played some great hurling in the third quarter. Thanks to some outstanding defending and another crucial goal coming this time from Max Murphy meant that going into the final quarter the score was Midleton 3-02 to Erin’s Own 0-09. It was nip and tuck until the final whistle, but the lads worked tirelessly to hold out for a final score of Midleton 3-06 to Erin’s Own 1-10. The lads now face Kiltha Óg in the P2 hurling final in a few weeks’ time. The panel for the match was: Michael Allegrini, Jason Morley, Cian Lawton, Rian Casey, Harry Waterman, Shane O’Mahony, Cuan Twomey, Senan Carroll, Luke Bamber, Scott Dunlea, Max Murphy, Patrick O’Dowd, Jack Walsh, James Carey, Darragh Mullins, Dara Birdthistle, Ruairi O’Riordan, Fionn Bohan, James O’Meara and Ewan Murphy.

U14A County Championship semi final.

Midleton Vs Cobh.

On Saturday 2nd October  we faced our East Cork neighbours looking to try and reach a second County final in the space of a week. The girls started fast again and an early goal from Tia Wall Wallace which was superbly set up by Kate O' Sullivan who raced towards goal and as she was surrounded by Cobh defenders laid off off a superb hand pass to Tia who rattled the back of the net. As the first half went on the two sides traded goals and points both with our scores mostly coming from Faye Dunlea and Kate O' Sullivan both of whom were receiving great service from our two outstanding midfielders Rebecca Cronin and Sorcha Cronin. These two girls covered every blade of grass putting in tackle after tackle in arguably their finest performance of the season so far. We went in to the break eight points up but facing into a strong wind in the second half we knew we needed to brace ourselves for an inevitable Cobh comeback.

The second half started exactly as the first half had done with both Mia Collins and Rebecca Cronin firing in a couple of goals to really stretch out our lead, we then introduced all our subs including Robin Keating, Chloe Griffin, Emma Keeshan and Cara Wallace and these girls kept up the high standards of the girls they replaced and Midleton kept the scoreboard ticking over eventually running out deserved winners on a scoreline of Midleton 8-07 (31) toCobh 3-3 ( 12 )

Finally we would like to thank our loyal supporters who always give us great support, the referee Cathal McAllister for a fine game played by two great sides. Our commiserations to Cobh and their management but for us we march on to face Kilbrittain in the 2021 Championship County final. We look forward to hopefully seeing you coming out to support us in both finals. Well done to Kate O Sullivan who captained her team on the day
