Midleton GAA notes 25th April

27 April, 2011

Junior A Football Championship
Midleton 0-12 Dungourney 0-11.
Our Junior A footballers came through their latest Championship fixture on Sunday last when they overcame a gallant Dungourney team by a single point. Tha game was played in glorious sunshine in Castlemaryr. In the first quarter Dungourney were the stronger team winning most of the breaks and carrying the game to Midleton. Dungourney led by 0-5 to 0-3 at this stage. Midleton lost Jamie O’Mahony to a back injury and he was ably replaced by Keith Ryan. The second quarter belonged to Midleton as we upped our game and kicked some glorious points, notably from Willie O’Brien, John Keane and Keith Ryan. At half time we led 0—9 to 0-06. The second half was only 4 minutes old when Sean Corcoran suffered a bad ankle injury in an accidental collision. The game was held up while Sean was removed to hospital via ambulance. Padraig Dalton was introduced into a revamped Midleton team. Shortly after Padraig O’Shea retired with a hamstring injury. All the injuries and delays seemed to unsettle Midleton. Dungourney rallied and tied up the game with only a couple of minutes to go. Dungourney looked the more likely winners as they had the momentum. A pointed free from Stephen Moore with two minutes to go edged Midleton back in front and we used our experience in the last couple of minutes to hold on for the win. Well done to the Mentors and players who manged to secure the win against strong opponents and despite the long delay and upset caused by Sean’s injury. Midleton now face Carrigtwohill in a quarter final which has to played in the next two weeks.
Team: Brian Behan, Sean Hennessy, Sean Corcoran, Barry Fitgerald, Jamie O’Mahony, Seamus O’Farrell, Eoin Walsh, Patrick O’Mahony, Aidan Ryan, John Keane, Declan Ryan, Kieran Mulcahy, Willie O’Brien, Padraig O’Shea, Stephen Moore. Subs used Keith Ryan, Padraig Dalton and Davy O’Brien

Wed night 20th April
Midleton took on Inniscarra at the Midleton CBS pitch on Wednesday evening.Conditions for football were perfect and both teams served up some excellent stuff.It was great to see the commitment and skill shown by the lads on what was a very warm evening.
Inniscarra just about got the better of results, winning 3 out of the four matches.Although all the matches were very close and with a bit more accuracy Midleton could have been on the right side of a couple of more matches.

Fe 13
Our U-13 Panel continued their hurling league campaign with games v Donoughmore and Blackrock recently.
First up was a Friday evening trip on April 15th to Donoughmore for an Eastern Region league game where due to a clash with other games we had to supplement our U-13 Squad with some of the U-12 panel and these boys showed up very well on the night. The blend of enthusiasm of these U-12 players and the old experienced heads like Liam, Dylan, Shane, Conor E, Dion & Kevin D. saw us through to a comfortable win on the night. Our Panel on the night was Dylan Cahalane (Capt), Tommy O'Connell, Evan O'Meara, John O'Dwyer, Kelvin Hickey, Cormac Higgins, Eoin Moloney, Conor Evans, Kevin Daly, Sean O'Leary, Dion O'Neill-Hill, Liam Franklin, Harry Wall, Shane O'Brien, Andrew Nestor, Sean Barrett & Conor O'Farrell.

On Monday April 18th we played host to Blackrock in the Central Region league and after a very slow and laboured first half - which may be attributed to the previous evenings late outing by some squad members - we turned it around in the second half with a much better and more committed performance to win narrowly in the end. Our Squad for this game was : Padraig O'Brien (Capt), Eoin Moloney, Conor Evans, Temitayo Abdullah, Adam Daly, Kevin Mulcahy, Ryan McConville, Jordan Roche, Christopher Shanahan, Garan Manley, David Mulcahy, Christian Daly, Ryan O'Reagan, Liam Franklin, Christopher Power, Shane O'Brien, Sean O'Leary and Kevin Daly.
