Senior Hurling Championship Final

Midleton 0:24 Glen Rovers 1:18

Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Sunday 21st November at 3.00pm

Report courtesy of Denis Hurley, The Echo

MIDLETON are the Cork hurling champions for the eighth time after they prevailed against Glen Rovers in Sunday’s Co-op SuperStores Cork Premier SHC decider at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

While they never trailed at any stage, the Magpies had to weather a strong Glen response as what had been a nine-point lead was wiped out early in the second half. They never fell behind though and a point from Man of the Match Conor Lehane ensured that they were back in front by the water break.

Cormac Beausang extended the lead and Lehane’s 12th, a free after he had been fouled, opened up the three-point lead that would pertain at the end. However, after Patrick Horgan – who finished with 1-12 for the Glen – scored what proved to the game’s final score in the 58th minute, Midleton struggled to find a point to put themselves four in front, shooting some poor wides and seeing a shot come back off the post.

It meant that the game was still in the melting pot in the fourth minute of injury time when the Glen’s Dean Brosnan sent a delivery goalward. When it broke, Glen sub Conor Dorris was first to reach it but his attempt at an equalising goal went agonisingly wide and Midleton were the champions.

The winners had enjoyed a good start. Playing with the wind, the Magpies – last champions in 2013 – had the game’s first three points, with Conor Lehane on target twice and Cormac Beausang also registering.

While the Glen – beaten in the finals of 2019 and 2020 – got off the mark through a Patrick Horgan free, Midleton remained on top and Seán O’Meara also got on the scoresheet before a pair of superb Ross O’Regan scores made it 0-8 to 0-3 by the 16th minute.

When Beausang forced a turnover that led to Luke O’Farrell being fouled when a goal was on, Lehane’s fourth left them six to the good at the water break.

The flow continued after the resumption, with Lehane prominent in the air against the Glen’s half-back line, and when Cormac Walsh found him with a sideline cut, he landed his seventh to open up a 0-15 to 0-6 advantage by the 27th minute.

However, the Glen got back into it as David Noonan’s delivery caused confusion between Midleton goalkeeper Brion Saunderson and full-back Luke Dineen, with Horgan netting the loose ball.

They finished the half with three of the last four points and stayed in touch on the restart as Lehane and Horgan exchanged frees. On 44, Midleton might have scored a definitive goal as Lehane’s super pass found Seán O’Meara and he tried to play in Beausang but Stephen McDonnell made a vital intervention.

Buoyed by that, the Glen scored the next three points, Horgan with his 11th and Simon Kennefick getting two, and the sides were level.

The Glen looked to have the momentum, but Midleton steadied to move back in front and ultimately the prize.

Scorers for Midleton: C Lehane 0-13 (0-8 f), R O’Regan 0-4, P White, C Beausang, S O’Meara 0-2 each, L O’Farrell 0-1.

Homecoming Parade

Last night we had a fantastic opportunity to welcome the panel and backroom staff back into Midleton. The procession of cars being led by the team walking down the town was brilliant. We all know that COVID represents a new and different reality for us all but it was great to see such a warm and safe welcome being shown to our winning team. Magpies Abú.

Juvenile

Fé8 Notes;

The Fé8 boys were back at the club for hurling training on Saturday last with a large turnout again, many of the lads proudly wearing their black and white in support of their senior hero’s in the big match. It was great to see so many of the Fé8 lads at the county semi-final v Blackrock with the ‘autograph hunting’ in full swing after the final whistle. Best of luck to the senior players and management in the COUNTY FINAL from all the Fé8 players and coaches.

Fé11 Notes

Saturday the 6th of November saw the Fé11 travel to Cobh for an afternoon football game.

Very windy conditions made it tough going but the lads dug in, playing some nice football and taking some nice scores despite the wind. Well done boys and thanks to the parents for traveling.

Training continues Tuesday evening in Midleton College.

Fé13 NOTES

Fé13 C3 HURLING FINAL V SARSFIELDS

The Fé13 hurling team contested the C3 County Final on Saturday October 30th in Riverstown against Sarsfields. The lads had performed very well in this competition this year, improving with each game played and were really looking to give a good performance to finish the year against strong opposition. Played on a soft surface, the game turned out to be a low scoring match between two evenly matched teams. The half time score was Sarsfields 0-07 to Midleton 0-03. Despite playing some very good hurling in the second half the lads were unable to find the goal that would have narrowed the gap on the scoreboard. In the end Sarsfields ran out victorious on a score line of Sarsfield 0-12 to Midleton 0-07. Despite the result the lads can be confident that they are making very good progress and will hopefully continue to improve going in 2022. Thanks to all those who travelled to support the lads for his match and also for their support throughout the year.

The panel for the match was: Michael Allegrini, Fionn Bohan, Harry Waterman, Adam Spillane, Patrick Collins, Cuan Twomey (captain), Jason Morley, Ruairi O’Riordan, Luke Bamber, David Kelly, Patrick O’Dowd, James O’Meara, Dara Birdthistle, Ewan Murphy, Sean Gregory, Rian Casey, James Carey, Michael Barrett, Jamie O’Donovan, Bradley O’Brien. 

Scorers: Patrick O’Dowd 0-04 (1f) James Carey 0-02 (1f), Ewan Murphy 0-01
