Ballincollig was the venue for our senior team's in their latest game in the County Hurling League Division 2 on Sunday afternoon on a lovely day for hurling. 

We got off to a slow start and trailed by 0-6 to 0-2 after ten minutes but four points on the bounce from Aaron Mulcahy (2), Paul Connaughton and Ross O'Regan saw us level the game before Paul Connaughton struck for the opening goal of the game on 16 minutes to put us 1-6 to 0-6 in front. This was followed by points from Paul Haughney, Aaron Mulcahy and Alex Quirke to put us si clear after 21 minutes. Ballincollig fought back and by the half-time whistle our lead was down to four, 1-10 to 0-9.

Early second-half points from Paul Connaughton, Gary Carroll, Aaron Mulcahy and Ross O'Regan had us seven in front with 18 minutes to play. Ballincolig stormed back in the final quarter and with a minute of the normal time to play they levelled the game (0-20 to 1-17) and when it looked like we'd be picking up our third draw of this league campaign, Ballincollig struck for the winning goal in the 64th minute.

Next up in the league for us are Newtownhsandrum. Fixture to be confirmed. 

Scorers: Midleton: Aaron Mulcahy 0-8 (0-6 frees), Paul Connaughton 1-3, Gary Carroll and Ross O'Regan 0-2 each, Paul Haughney and Alex Quirke 0-1 each. 

MIDLETON: Bryan Rossiter, David Scanlon, Luke Dineen, Seannaidh Smyth, Christian Murphy, Sean O'Leary Hayes, Eoin Moloney, Paul Haughney, Rory Hartnett, Gary Carroll, Ross O'Regan, Alex Quirke, Paul Connaughton, Pa White, Aaron Mulcahy. Subs: Adam Daly for Rory Hartnett, Cian Crowley for Daly (inj). 



Our intermediates made the short journey to Rostellan on Friday night for an East Cork derby in the County Hurling League Division 5 against Aghada and came away with a good win on a final scoreline of 0-31 to 0-23.

On a near-perfect night for hurling in front of a big crowd at a splendidly prepared Rostellan pitch we got off to a strong start and led by 0-6 to 0-3 after 16 minutes. But back came the home side and a host of points from play saw them lead by two (0-11 to 0-9) with three minutes of the first-half remaining. But points from Tadhg O'Leary Hayes, Adam Daly, Paul Connaughton and Evan McCarthy, with two in reply from Aghada saw us lead by a single point at the halfway stage. 

Aghada got the first point of the second-half but then we hit six of the next seven points to lead by 0-20 to 0-15 just seven minutes into the second period. Aghada reduced the deficit to three put with Tadhg O'Leary Hayes, Aidan Ryan, Darragh McCarthy, Adam Daly and Padraig O'Brien in fine scoring form we soon reasserted our dominance and in the end we ran out deserving winners after a fine game of hurling by eight points.

It's worth noting that we scored 25 points from play over the 60 minutes - some shooting.  

Next up is another East Cork derby, this time against Russell Rovers in Midleton on Friday week (May 26).

Scorers: Midleton: Tadhg O'Leary Hayes, Paul Connaughton (0-3 frees) and Adam Daly (0-2 frees & 0-1 '65) 0-5 each. Aidan Ryan, Padraig O'Brien and Darragh McCarthy 0-4 each, Gary Carroll 0-3, Evan McCarthy 0-1.

MIDLETON: Cillian Hurley, Cathal Gunning, Christian Murphy, David Scanlon, Adam Fay, James Nagle, Evan McCarthy, Tadhg O'Leary Hayes, Adam Daly, Gary Carroll, Aidan Ryan, Darragh McCarthy, Paul Connaughton, Padraig O'Brien, Cian McCarthy. 




Our Junior A hurlers continued their winning ways on Sunday against Aghada in Clonmult Memorial Park. 

Not an ideal start to this game, where a referee was double booked. Willie Wallis in fairness, even though on the sideline with Aghada refereed the game. Playing with the breeze and in a fairly hot-tempered affair, we managed to build up a healthy half-time lead of 2-10 to 0-6. The second-half was tit for tat and finished out with a comfortable win.

Our next league outing is away to Castlemartyr on Monday, May 29 with a 7.45pm throw-in.

MIDLETON: Zach Smith, Colin Sunderland, Adam Fay, Kieran Lambert, Daire Mooney, Jack Fitzgerald, Darragh Higgins, Alan Power, Leo Hennessy (0-8,7f), Evan Rowlands (0-1), Harry Wall (0-2), Christian Daly (1-1), Ben O'Neill (0-1), Peter Dowling (2-1), Tim O'Sullivan (0-2f). Subs Used: Dan O'Sullivan, Nicky Daly Hayes, Rory Lester. 




A very good sporting game on a splendid Clonmult pitch on Wednesday evening. Midleton had the better of the first half and led by 0-11 to 0-7 at half time. Lisgoold really came at us in the second half and the effort put in by our boys to hold on was most pleasing.

Our next league outing is in Caherlag against Erins Own on Wednesday, the 31st of May, with an 8pm throw in.

MIDLETON: Cillian Hurley, Rory Lester, Jack Fitzgerald, Kieran Lambert, Brendan Ferriter, Patrik Kane, Evan McGrath, Luke Deane, Dan O'Sulivan, Nicky Daly Hayes (0-5f), Evan Rowlands (0-2), Dan Cagney (0-2, 1f), Gavin Hurley, Brian O'Sullivan (0-3), Alex Howard (0-4) Subs Used: Ben O'Neill (0-1), Colin Sunderland, Darragh Higgins, James O'Sullivan

Well done to the five Midleton players on the Cork East Celtic Challenge panel that defeated Cork North in their semi-final on Saturday last. L to R: Eoin Fraser, Fionn Kelly, Darragh Egan, Daniel Garde and Luca Brodkorb. Cork East are now into the All-Ireland Final where they will take on Dublin. 



Our Fé12s travelled to near neighbours Aghada on Monday evening. A great game was witnessed by all in attendance. We started very well and scored five lovely points from play to lead at half time by 0-5 to 0-2. We cancelled out Aghada's early goal in the second-half with an opportunist goal ourselves from Ben Fitz. It was nip and tuck from then till the final whistle where Aghada claimed victory by four points after a well-taken penalty from Ben Duggan with the clock almost up. Well done to both teams on a tough but fair game. Final score Aghada 2-6, Midleton 1-5.
