SENIOR HURLING

Our senior hurlers bounced back to winning ways on Saturday evening in Pairc Uí Rinn when they had an excellent ten point win over Newtownshandrum in round two of the Senior Hurling Championship.

After a slow start we were 0-4 to 0-1 down after ten minutes and 0-8 to 0-4 behind after 20 minutes. But a strong finish to the opening half, including a great team goal finished off by Tommy O'Connell saw us lead at the half-time interval by the slenderest of margins, 1-9 to 0-11.

We outscored Newtown by 7 to 4 in the opening 12 minutes of the second-half to stretch our lead to four (1-16 to 0-15) and by the 50th minute mark the lead was out to five, 1-19 to 0-17.

A Newtown goal in the closing ten minutes closed the gap but in the end we ran out deserving winners after a strong second-half display. The final score was Midleton 1-28 Newtownshandrum 1-18.

Scorers: C Lehane 0-15 (0-11 f, 0-1 65), L O’Farrell 0-4, T O’Connell 1-0, C Beausang 0-3, P Haughney, S Quirke 0-2 each, A Quirke, P White 0-1 each.

INTERMEDIATE HURLING

After a narrow defeat to Aghada in their opening game, our intermediates came into this game with a point to prove and despite the loss of Seamus O'Farrell and Padraig O'Keeffe before the game and Sean O'Farrell inside the opening minute the lads put in an excellent performance to come away with a deserved draw.

There was nothing in this game all through. We led by 0-3 to 0-2 after ten minutes and trailes 0-6 to 0-5 after 20 minutes before going in at the half-time whistle with a narrow lead on a score of 0-12 to 0-11. 

The second half was just tight with both teams matching each other score for score. We trailed by 0-17 to 0-16 with ten minutes to go but with the referee playing nine minutes of injury-time the sides could not be separated at the final whistle on a final score of 0-21 apiece.   

Scorers: A. Mulcahy 0-7 (0-4 frees), G. Carroll & D. Cremin 0-3 each, M. Finn, P. Connaughton & C. Crowley 0-2 each, J. Nagles & T. Roche 0-1 each.

MIDLETON: Bryan Rossiter, Leo Hennessy, Cian Murray, Cathal Gunning (Captain), Gavin Reddy, Leslie Coughlan, Darragh McCarthy, Sean O'Farrell, Mikey Finn, James Nagle, Aaron Mulcahy, Gary Carroll, Paul Connaughton, Cian Crowley, David Cremin. Sub: Christian Daly for O'Farrell (inj), Tiarnán Roche for Nagle.

We would like to wish a very speedy recovery to midfielder Sean O'Farrell who suffered a nasty collarbone injury inside the first minute of this game. Best of luck in your recuperation Sean and we look forward to seeing you back in black and white as soon as possible.

The Intermediates are back in action on Saturday, August 27 when we will play Blackrock in Carrigtwohill at 2pm.

JUNIOR B HURLING

The Junior B hurlers were the third and final Midleton team in championship action at the weekend when they travelled to Glenville on Sunday evening to take on Sars.

With an excellent mix of youth and experience the lads in Black and White turned in an excellent display. They led  by 2-7 to 0-3 at half-time thanks to goals from Mark O’Keeffe and Cathal Beausang and they kept it up in the second period to run out convincing winners on a scoreline of 2-20 to 1-5.

MIDLETON: Coran Swayne, Dan O’Sullivan, Neil Fitzgerald, Daragh Mooney, Liam McGrath, Alwyn Kearney, Padraig O’Farrell, Luke Deane (0-1), Stuart O’Connor (0-4), James O’Sullivan (0-2), Cillian Hurley (0-1), Ben O’Neill (0-3), Cathal Beausang (1-1), John Keane (0-2), Mark O’Keeffe (1-7).

JUVENILES

FÉ8S
On Saturday morning last our young Magpies took to the field in Park South for a hurling  blitz. It was an action packed morning, where we fielded four teams and each team played four games. Our Magpies again played very tough and competitive matches against Sars.

 

FÉ11S

The Midleton U-11s welcomed Youghal for challenge games on Saturday morning at a sun drenched Park South. 36 players togged out for the Magpies with everyone getting game time. Well done to all for their commitment and determination. We had 3 x 20 minute games and even though we started slow in the first game we grew into it and finished very strong. There’s a big Fun Day planned next Saturday in Trabolgan so hopefully all can make it.

FÉ15S

A big well done to or Fé15 Division 4 team who had an excellent 2-21 to 0-2 win over Douglas in their hurling championship clash in Douglas on Friday night. Great stuff lads.

FÉ17S

Having lost out to Glen Rovers in the opening round of the championship, our minors travelled to Riverstown to take on Sars (who they had also lost to recently in the league) on Friday night needing a victory and the produced in style. After an excellent display by the men in Black and White, the Magpies ran out winners on a scoreline of 0-20 to 2-6.

MIDLETON: Zach Smith, Darren Higgins, Niall Lang, Tomás Dunlea, Alex Moloney, Tadhg O’Leary Hayes, Corcaigh Cronin, Cian Lambe, Luca Brodcorp, Eoin Higgins, Eoin Frazer, Evan McGrath, James McSweeney, Tadhg Bowen, Darragh Egan. Well done lads.

CAMOGIE

FÉ13/14S

Our U-13s faced Douglas in the U-14B2 league county final at Castle Road on Saturday  afternoon. It was a slow start from our girls and we were well behind at half-time. However it was a different story in the second-half with Midleton storming out of the blocks and giving an outstanding second-half display.

Unfortunately we had left ourselves too much to do and we came up short in the end. This is an outstanding group of girls and they should be very proud of their achievements today. Well done to both management and the girls themselves on reaching the final. A special mention to Olivia who did very well captaining the U-13s on the day.

CROKE PARK TRIP

Midleton Camogie were on tour on Sunday as they made their way to Croke Park for the senior and intermediate camogie finala where Cork took on Kilkenny and Galway. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be in either game for Cork with a single point between the two teams at the final whistle in the senior game and just two points in it at the end of the intermediate game.

That didn’t dampen the spirits of our girls who all thoroughly enjoyed their day and the experience of Croke Park which was the first time for a lot of the girls. We would like to thank our Vice Secretary Tracey Ryan who organised the bus trip and the day itself from start to finish and great efforts were put in by Tracey to ensure the day went smoothly. We would also like to thank the many parents who volunteered on the day which proved a huge success.

CORK U-14S

The Cork U-14 Ban team with Midleton players Faye Dunlea and Roisin McManus competed in the All-Ireland blitz in Abbotstown, Dublin on Saturday last.

The team topped their group having beaten Wexford, Waterford and Clare the Cork girls qualified for the final but unfortunately lost the decider to Kilkenny. Well done to all on a super achievement. The girls went on to parade with the U-14 Cork Development Squad in Croke Park at half-time on Sunday of the Intermediate All-Ireland Final.
