Midleton Hurling and Football, Ladies Football and Camogie Club News - June 16

16 June, 2022

JUVENILES

FÉ8S

Our Fé8s made the journey to Togher on Saturday morning to take on St. Finbarrs and a brilliant morning of hurling was had by all. Well done lads and keep up the great work.

FÉ10S

Well done to our Fé10s who put in a super performance in gaelic football at Home against Ballincollig on Saturday. All three teams of nine players each got some great scores throughout each of their games. Thanks to Ballincollig for making the trip East and thanks to all the parents for their great support.

FÉ12S

On Saturday we travelled to Dungarvan (above) to play two hurling challenge games against Abbeyside. A great afternoon’s hurling saw one result go our way and one against. Thanks to Abbeyside for the looking after us so well.

On Monday we headed for Ballincollig (below) for our football group one league opener. A hard evening’s football followed. Well done to the boys for never giving up and playing until the final whistle, despite being on the back foot from the start.

FÉ14 P2 FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP V BANDON

The Fé14 lads were at home to Bandon in the semi-final of the P2 football championship in Clonmult Memorial Park. The Magpies started well with goals from James O’Meara and Dara Birdthistle, followed by another goal from Scott Dunlea giving Midleton a half time lead of 3-3 to 0-7. However, this really was a game of two halves with Bandon coming into the game in the second-half. In fairness to Midleton, and despite a number of injuries, the lads never gave up but unfortunately were unable to get the scores that their overall play deserved, with Bandon running out winners on a score line of 3-5 to 1-14.

MIDLETON: Bradley O’Brien, Jason Morley, Harry Waterman (captain), Rian Casey, Jack Walsh, Shane O’Mahony, Ruairi O’Riordan, Senan Carroll), Dara Birdthistle, Darragh Mullins, Max Murphy, James O’Meara, Cian Lawton, Scott Dunlea, Ewan Murphy,  Michael Allegrini, Sean Gregory, Patrick Collins, Adam Spillane, James Carey, Jamie O’Donovan, Alex Horgan.

FÉ14 P1 HURLING SHIELD SEMI-FINAL V KILTHA ÓG

The semi-final of the P1 hurling shield saw the lads make the short trip to Dungourney to play Kiltha Óg. With numbers low due to holidays and other commitments, this was always going to be a difficult match with little between these two teams over the last number of years. The first half was more of the same with the sides level at half time on a score line of Midleton 2-3 Kiltha Óg 1-6, the Midleton goals coming from Shane O’Mahony and Sean Gregory. The Midleton lads upped their work rate in the second half and were full value for their two point victory, the final score reading Kiltha Óg 1-12 Midleton 2-11.

MIDLETON: Michael Allegrini, Patrick Collins, Jason Morley, Fionn Bohan, Scott Dunlea, Max Murphy, Jack Walsh, Patrick O’Dowd, Harry Waterman, Dara Birdthistle, Senan Carroll (Captain), Sean Gregory, Ewan Murphy, James Carey, Shane O’Mahony, Jamie O’Donovan, Adam Spillane, Liam Walsh, Peader Egan, Ciaran Kelly.

FÉ14V DUNGOURNEY

Our Fé14 Camogie team hosted Dungourney at Park South recently in the Imokilly League. It was great to see that the rain showers had not dampened their enthusiasm for playing. The girls worked extremely hard as usual all over the field and got the bit of luck they deserved in the second-half to come from behind and win by a single point. Everyone was able to contribute, with the improvement in passing particularly evident in the game. Well done again girls. Keep up the hard work.

JUNIOR C CAMOGIE LEAGUE FINAL

Midleton 1-13 Bride Rovers 2-10

In our first ever adult camogie final we had a titanic battle with Bride Rovers on Monday night at Castle Road with the game ending all square after a great hour of camogie.

Our girls gave it everything and were superb from start to finish. We led 1-10 to 1-4 at the break. Sadhbh Beausang led the way with 1-4 from play, followed closely by the outstanding Abbie Foley who had 0-5 (4f). Lucy Wallis also popped up with a score. We found scores a bit harder to come by in the second-half with Jodie Keegan O’Connell adding a point from play and two more Abbie Foley frees saw us level at the end. Jill Connaughton was her usual reliable self in goals, with great performances  in our backs from Ruthie Hennessy, Muireann Ni Conchubhair , Leah Hogan and Jade Bradley. Yvonne Abernethy and Lucy Wallis  got through a pile of work in midfield and with the aforementioned Abbie Foley and  Sadhbh Beausang leading the way in the forwards. We will do it all again at a time and venue TBC.

MIDLETON: Jill Connaughton, Ruthie Hennessy Jade Bradley, Muireann Ni Chonchubhair Leah Hogan, Aoife Fitzgerland, Roisin O’Callaghan Yvonne Abernethy, Lucy Wallis 0-1, Emma O’Sullivan, Sadhbh Beausang(1-4), Abbie Foley 0-0(6f)),Rayanna Power, Jodie Keegan O’Connell (0-1),Hannah Power, Rachel Ryan, Jade Fitzgerald, Elle McManus, Abbie Quirke,
